2015 Mainstage Entertainment
Luke Bryans life as an entertainer has been full of pinch-me moments. The Leesburg, GA, native and ACM Entertainer of the Year is at the top of his game and yet, his new album, Crash My Party, proves he has no limits.
Full of playful longing, the first single Crash My Party, beckons, ‘come love on me. Over a million fans have done so, as indicated by copies sold. One of Bryans favorite recordings, Goodbye Girl, taps into a new vein, using a tender, Conway Twitty-like, soft voice. Dirt Road Diary, is the story of his life, he says; a song he envisions country boys driving down a dirt road listening to.
Were so excited to host Luke in August, you just might need to pinch us.
Rascal Flatts performances are state-of-the art, house-rocking, sold-out excursions into musical excitement! All of it stems from the magic that happens when their voices unite.
Jay and Gary, from the Columbus, Ohio area, and Joe Don, from Picher, Oklahoma teamed up in a club in Nashvilles Printers Alley. We knew right away we had something special, says Jay, even if we were the only ones who ever got to hear it. They quickly earned a record deal— talent, drive, and great song selection did the rest. Their list of hits constitutes one of the great bodies of work in modern country music, with These Days, Bless the Broken Road, What Hurts The Most, My Wish, forming just the tip of an ever-expanding list of hits. They have seen 14 singles hit the top of the charts, spending more than eight months collectively at #1.
Even in a career as filled with music and milestones as that of Rascal Flatts, there are times when capturing the moment isnt difficult. Sometimes, it only takes a word. The release of Changed, the trios eighth studio album, is a great case in point. Everything is in this big crock pot called Changed, says Gary with a laugh Its got meat, potatoes, vegetables—all of it. Its fun, its poignant, and we think the hard work that went into it has really paid off. And were very glad to take one more big step down the road.
Were excited that road will bring Rascal Flatts to Brownsville in 2015!
The Band Perry
Fronted by Kimberly Perry and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, The Band Perry ventured into the unknown when writing and recording their second album, Pioneer. Rather than covered wagons or astronauts on the moon, its about marching forward and making noise, despite being unsure of how to get where youre going. The title track asks, ‘Where are we going ‘What will become of us? This is the first recording the trio feels truly captures the full-throttle intensity of The Band Perrys live show.
Taken as a whole, Pioneer enables The Band Perry to accomplish one of its primary goals: to bring the romantic mystique of bands back to music. Whether its the country-rock stomping empowerment anthem DONE., the blistering Night Gone Wasted, or the Queen-influenced Forever Mine Nevermind the songs were tailor-made for arena shows. There are also vulnerable, thoughtful tunes like Pioneer, Mother Like Mine, and End of Time, a ballad that recalls the bands Southern roots.
The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights and is continuing to climb.
With six No. 1 hits under his belt at age 29, Grammy-nominated Chris Young has accomplished more than some artists do in a lifetime. Known for his classic baritone and melt-your-heart ballads Young knows how to have a good time, too.
His fourth album, A.M., sounds nothing like his previous albums, yet it remains defiantly, definitely country. The Top 5 hit Aw Naw, immediately sets the tone with an irreverent story about what Young calls an accidental party – ‘Hey, I just came to have one, and ended up staying all night. Its addictive four-on-the-floor vibe is tailor made for live sing-alongs, with a tongue-in-cheek title thats both ridiculous and ridiculously inescapable. ‘Lighters in the Air is about meeting someone and falling in love at a concert, losing yourself in that night, he says. The tender, traditional love song Goodbye is evidence theres something deeper going on in the hours before the dawn. You might assume its a breakup song. But its about a relationship worth fighting for, showing up at somebodys house in the middle of the night and trying to work it out.
Did we mention this Murfreesboro, TN native is a handsome charmer to boot?
