Thirteen acts with a total of 24 performers are gearing up for an exciting event Friday aimed at raising money for Restoration Place, a shelter for women and children fleeing domestic abuse.


“We are an organization with a mission for every woman in an unsafe home to have the confidence, as well as the resources, to independently support herself and her children,” Kim Lewallen told Beneath the Surface News. “To that end, we have established a safe haven in Erath County called Restoration Place, where survivors of family violence can live in safety as they restore their lives to health and happiness.”

Cross Timbers Got Talent is an America’s Got Talent-style show that will be held at the Cowboy Church of Erath County.

Judges include KSTV’s Billy Mack, Sylvia Burleson, a semi-pro singer whose father once ran the Stephenville Opera House, and Paige and Joy Murray, wife and mother of nine-time world champion bull rider Ty Murray.

Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at the door.


There will also be a silent auction and food trucks, which will open at 5:30 p.m., with the talent show beginning at 7 p.m.
