Selena Gomez Becomes The Latest North Texan on The Kinda Impressive Lilith Fair Tour Lineup.

Another month, another North Texan gets added to the kinda impressive Lilith Fair tour lineup...

Yep: Today comes the news that Grand Prairie's own Dis-kid, Selena Gomez (who our sister paper down in Houston is already pegging as past her prime at just 17 years old), has been added to the lineup for female-oriented summer tour's return--a bill that already boasts North Texas' own Erykah Badu, Norah Jones, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert and Erin McCarley.

We also know the tour's coming through North Texas--but, as of yet, there has been no date announced for its arrival, oh well. We'll let you know once that news comes along.

If nothing else, today's news seems to further confirm that a certain area booking agent was pretty damn spot on about a year back when he ran past me the idea of holding a festival featuring North Texas' fine female musician crop. And, surely, the above list--with some help from Sarah Jaffe, Bosque Brown and a few others--would make a fine bill on its own, no? Just some food for thought, I guess.
