The Evening of Entertainment at the 2017 Commodity Classic puts the cherry on top of America’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show. Commodity Classic will be held March 2-4, 2017, in San Antonio, Texas.
Saturday night’s Evening of Entertainment will feature the country sounds of Grammy-nominated Pat Green, a Texas hit maker with an “outsider” reputation. The Evening of Entertainment is sponsored by Monsanto.

He has appeared on national television shows including Austin City Limits, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Show with David Letterman. He has co-written songs with Willie Nelson, Brad Paisley, Jewel and Rob Thomas. He has also toured with Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and the Dave Matthews Band.
