Coleman was treated to a wealth of entertainment this last Saturday, October 22, 2016 as the annual Prickly Pear Festival came to life.

With some of the finest food and wine paired together anywhere, locals and visitors alike were treated to an amazing line up of musical talent. One of the artists; Coffey Anderson, stole the show for many as he is indeed the small town boy who made it big.

Coffey is local, raised only a few miles east of Coleman in Bangs Texas and is a graduate of Howard Payne university in Brownwood, Texas with a ministry degree. Coffey has not forgotten his roots.

Many there were inspired to find out that Coffey and his band have raised over $300,000 to refurbish and give, mortgage free housing to our vets in need. In doing this, he inspired other bands and record labels to get on board, resulting in more than 200 houses in total being built or refurbished for our wounded veterans.

Coffey, with a deep passion to create a bridge in racial and social differences made internet history by creating the first video on Facebook to have more than 30,000,000 (million) views. This video has now been duplicated multiple times being both praised and criticized. Having this large internet audience, Coffey was invited to speak with President Obama at the POTUS town hall meeting filmed by ABC.

Coleman is certainly honored to have been a part of Coffey's early environment where he participated in many small town youth activities that brought him to Coleman. Coffey's spiritual foundation is seen clearly now in his life as an entertainer as well as an inspirational speaker. Small town pride and small town values cannot be duplicated, depreciated or ignored!

ColemanConnected is proud to post this video that features a few minutes of music, a great ensemble of Sweet Home Alabama Texas, finishing up with few words from Coffey directly to Coleman and youth everywhere on his thoughts about coming from a small town.
