Saturday, June 29 • LYNYRD SKYNYRD with Drivin’ N’ Cryin’
Led by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals) and Rickey Medlocke (guitar), along with longtime drummer Michael Cartellone, Lynyrd Skynyrd has maintained a tremendous legacy that began over 40 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and continues with the recently released Last Of A Dying Breed (Roadrunner).

With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations. Experience what’s sure to be a rockin’ n’ roll dream come true on June 29 at 8:00 p.m. with fellow rockers Drivin’ n’ Cryin’.

Sunday, June 30 • LOS LONELY BOYS, LOS LOBOS, and ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO
Everyone’s favorite Texican rockers, Los Lonely Boys, are back with a new album and nationally scheduled tour dates. These Latin rockers shot to fame in the mid-2000s with their super-hit, “Heaven,” they scored a Grammy, and a multi-Platinum album. Known for their exhausting tour schedule, Los Lonely Boys tour dates are about the live experience and their extensive catalog of original material.
Los Lonely Boys 2009-10 tour included nearly 200 concerts and was attended by more than 350,000 fans. Their fourth and most recent LP, Rockpango was released in March, 2011 and debuted at #70 on the Billboard 200. As one of the greatest live acts in rock music today, Los Lonely Boys shows are characterized by syncretized soul and Latin Rock.
As pioneers of Chicano-Rock, Los Lobos has garnered Grammy-Awards, a #1 single, and nearly a dozen rock hits over their thirty-plus year career. Originally dubbed Los Lobos del Este (de Los Angeles), the East Los Angeles group shortened their name and released their first independent release in 1978. The original line-up has been touring and recording ever since.
Los Lobos achieved critical success with their 1984 release, How Will the Wolf Survive, which was produced by super-producer T-Bone Burnett. The album produced two top-forty rock singles and Los Lobos tour dates were scheduled on a national small venue tour. In 1987 they hit #1 with “La Bamba” from the movie of the same name. Los Lobos earned two Grammy Awards in 1983 and 1987 in the Best Mexican-American Performance category.
They continued to tour and record throughout the ’90s Most notably, they released Papa’s Dream in 1995 whose single “Mariachi Suite” won the band another Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance.
Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent he has embraced all forms that encompass the emotional terrain of our lives; its celebrations and despairs, landmines, blindsides, upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search of ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty.
Escovedo’s rise has been gradual, a steady incline rather than a quick ascendance, but it has deepened and burnished his music, made it closer to the bone, where it begins to break, deepening his insight and his ability to find that insight in performance. His tireless touring, and dogged determination to place one album after another, has taken him through many musical scenes, remaining the same persona within each, of an artist who doesn’t settle for the easy way out. Don’t miss a night with these three great performers on June 30 at 8:00 p.m.

Friday, July 5 • JERROD NIEMANN with LoCash Cowboys
While writing and recording his new album, Jerrod Niemann immersed himself in the history of country music. A student of music theory and production—he majored in Performance Art Technology at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas— Niemann pondered a question that is heard more and more frequently these days: Just what exactly constitutes country?
His answer to that query can be found in the musically and technically groundbreaking Free The Music. “This album is my interpretation of how I feel about country right now,” Niemann says.
The follow-up to his Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville debut Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury, which debuted at No. 1 and yielded the No. 1 hit “Lover, Lover” and the Top 5 single “What Do You Want,” Jerrod’s sophomore album emphasizes the early instruments that have shaped the genre: acoustic guitars and bass, fiddles, and even horns. Enjoy the groundbreaking sounds of Jerrod Niemann with LoCash Cowboys on July 5 @ 8:00 pm.

Trace Adkins is one of Country music’s most accomplished entertainers. His trademark baritone has powered countless hits to the top of the charts and turned albums into Platinum plaques, selling over 10 million albums, cumulatively. The Grammy-nominated member of the Grand Ole Opry is also a television personality, actor and author. He is a spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Program, the American Red Cross and will soon complete his eighth USO Tour.
His 2007 autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, the 6’6″ oil-rigger-turned-Country star recounted his rise to fame, brushes with death, battles with personal demons and just how the world’s biggest alpha-male handles fatherhood – he has five daughters. In 2008, Trace’s integrity and wry humor served him well as he became a finalist on NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice. His return to Celebrity Apprentice All-Stars is now eagerly awaited.
In December 2012, Trace co-hosted the American Country Awards on FOX for the third consecutive year. He released a new version of the Christmas classic, “We Three Kings,” and is preparing his eleventh studio album (Spring 2013), which will feature the new American anthem, “Tough People Do.” Don’t miss the accomplished Trace Adkins with Chase Rice on July 6 @ 8:00 p.m.
