Outdoor concerts offer opportunities for music lovers to blend beautiful tunes with the wonders of nature, like teaching a parrot the discography of Edith Piaf. Squawk along to a bevy of tunes with today's Groupon: for $14, you get one ticket to a concert presented by Southern Concert Group at Conroe Heritage Place (a $30 value). Children age 7 and younger are admitted for free. Choose between the following shows:

Recently featured on the cover of North of the Border magazine, Southern Concert Group's "Conroe Country Music Jam" and "Rockin' with the Oldies" concerts hoist the flag for fun-inducing tunes with a host of current bands and tribute artists bent on compelling fans' feet into motion. The "Conroe Country Music Jam" show culls five honky-tonk-happy groups for 10 hours of slide guitars and soaring melodies—including the Scooter Brown Band and Sammy Kershaw—that provide an ideal soundtrack for swaying with a loved one or grabbing a bull by the horns and inviting him to line-dance.
"Rockin' with the Oldies" assembles four bands, including Elvis emulator Vince King and Cornell Gunter's Coasters, to rock each hour of the clock with oldie opulence. Though none of the groups dabbles in kids' music, both shows are intended to be family-friendly and provide a more accessible introduction to classic pop music than "The Mimed Ballads of Fleetwood Mac." The concerts take place rain or shine at Conroe Heritage Place, a 2.5-acre, tree-adorned haven featuring wide pathways, grassy knolls, and statues in honor of food crumbs lost to scavenging squirrels.
