Wednesday, August 8th- Sawyer Brown

Sawyer Brown
The band’s live shows are legendary. Having been described as “the Rolling Stones of Country Music,” the band bounds onto the stage night after night, delivering its own unique brand of high-energy entertainment, and the band remains a perennial favorite at fairs, festivals, theatres, and casinos. That excitement has been on display since the very first time Sawyer Brown stepped foot onstage in the early 1980s. Beginning as the road band for another singer, Sawyer Brown broke out on their own playing everything from clubs to pig roasts in those earliest days. The band has earned its place as one of the premier live acts in music. The band began by playing 275-300 nights a year for the first decade or more of its career—and has never come off the road.

Thursday, August 9th- Jerrod Niemann

With a stunning batch of new songs that push and pull at country music's borders, Jerrod Niemann returns with the best album of his career – and quite possibly the most relevant country release of the year. This Ride, the singer-songwriter's fourth album and his first for Curb Records, reminds fans, country radio and all of Nashville that Jerrod is one of the genre's most engaging vocalists and entertaining performers. A singer of songs, he delivers a lyric with conviction and emotion, and is just as gifted in the studio, where he nods to country music's history while reinventing the sound for today's audience.
