On the heels of the success of the Election Night Victory Party, Clayton and his team were hired by Glenn Smith Presents, producers of the Texas Inauguration 2015 as a whole, to produce the Young Texans Ball at ACL Live’s Moody Theater.
Tasked with creating an event that celebrated the Republican Party’s sweeping victories for and with the future leaders of the party, Clayton worked closely with the new administration, the Abbott family and campaign to throw one helluva party to kick off the inaugural proceedings.
The sold-out night was headlined by The Josh Abbott Band with Longhorn legend, Colt McCoy, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and newly minted Governor Greg Abbott also taking the stage to both speak and try their hands at being rock stars.
(Anecdote: Governor Abbott and his security team got stuck in the backstage elevator on their way to the stage…)
