1. Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow:

Date 22 Jul 2011
Time 8:00 PM
Cost $38.00 / $45.00 / $58.00

Kid Rock released his 8th studio album, "Born Free," in November 2010. His previous album "Rock 'N Roll Jesus," released in 2007, debuted at #1 and stayed in the charts for 100 weeks, becoming the biggest selling Rock album of 2008. His hit single "All Summer Long" hit #1 in 8 countries and provided Kid Rock the opportunity to expand his huge touring base outside of America. Kid Rock has a unique ability to genre-hop, marking his territory everywhere.

He hosted last year's CMT Awards (whose ratings rose 19% over the previous year) and performed at events ranging from the Grammy's to the VMA’s, EMA’s and CMA's to the Hip Hop Honors. He has performed for and visited troops overseas numerous times, and remains one of entertainments most vocal supporters of our soldiers abroad. In the past year he has entered into a unique partnership with Jim Beam, while at the same time expanding his philanthropic efforts through his own Kid Rock Foundation.

For Sheryl Crow, the title of her seventh album isn’t just a location; it’s a state of mind. "I grew up in a small town 100 miles from Memphis, and that informed not only my musical taste, but how I look at life,” she says. “The drive to Memphis is all farmland, and everyone is community-oriented, God-fearing people, connected to the earth. The music that came out of that part of the world is a part of who I am, and it’s the biggest inspiration for what I do and why I do it."

2. Jason Alden with Mark Chesnutt and Thomson Square:

Date- 23 Jul 2011
Time - 8:00 PM
Cost - $38.00 / $45.00 / $58.00

Since his 2005 debut with the scorching "Hicktown," Jason Aldean has set himself apart from the pack as a truly unique artist. He addresses his Georgia-born brand of country music with a singular vision, and he intends to keep it that way.

"The whole thing about being creative is coming up with new things," he says matter-of-factly in a converted barn on his Nashville-area farm. "What makes you different and more creative than the other guys is taking something to an extreme and making it better without ripping anybody else off. I think that's the key. The great ones figure it out and are constantly evolving, and that's what makes 'em great."

Thompson Square isn’t a real place, exactly. It's the musical territory staked out by the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, an exciting and unpredictable area where country meets rock, rough meets smooth and one vagabond heart finds a harmonious common ground with another. It’s the sweet destination where two journeys end and another one begins. "It's the place where we create our thing, a little fantasyland where we live," Keifer says.

3. The Charlie Daniels Band with the Janedear Girls:

Date: 24 Jul 2011
Time: 8:00 PM
Cost: $23.00

Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern. His signature "bullrider" hat and belt buckle, his lifestyle on the Twin Pines Ranch (a boyhood dream come true), his love of horses, cowboy lore and the heroes of championship rodeo, Western movies, and Louis L'Amour novels, identify him as a Westerner. The son of a lumberjack and a Southerner by birth, his music - rock, country, bluegrass, blues, gospel - is quintessentially Southern.

It hasn't been so much a style of music, but more the values consistently reflected in several styles that has connected Charlie Daniels with millions of fans. For decades, he has steadfastly refused to label his music as anything other than "CDB music," music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats.

There may be no better place to start, when talking about the JaneDear girls, than with the description offered by their producer, John Rich. "They are," he says, "the girls next door that kick country A**,,," Polished entertainers, Susie and Danelle have differing fashion outlooks but a unified approach to the music.

4. Motley Crue with Sick Puppies:

Date: 27 Jul 2011
Time: 8:00 PM
Cost: $38.00 / $45.00 / $58.00

Just when you thought it was safe to come out of the house, the world's most notorious hard rock band is back and better than ever. Mötley Crüe returned in summer 2008 with "Saints of Los Angeles," their first CD with the original line-up - Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, Tommy Lee and Vince Neil - in over a decade and the ninth studio album in their career, and the inaugural season of Crüe Fest, the band's version of the new great American rock festival, which became the top rock festival of the summer.

The album scored a #1 debut on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and landed as the top debut of the week on Billboard's Top 200, marking another major event for the band that has sold more than 80 million albums, 25 million in the U.S.A., to date. Mötley Crüe returns to the road this summer for Crüe Fest 2, marking with it a very special occasion - the 20th anniversary of the iconic rock album "Dr. Feelgood."

5. Darius Rucker with Kevin Costner & Modern West:

Date: 28 Jul 2011
Time: 8:00 PM
Cost: $38.00 / $45.00 / $58.00

Having your first country album debut at #1 on the Billboard charts – following a multi-week #1 debut country single – is a huge achievement by anyone's measure. When you add to that the New York Times' claim that your debut album is "one of the year's most vibrant country albums," and Variety's declaration that "Country music has a new major star, and the genre may never be the same" – well, it can be pretty heavy stuff.

So it comes as no surprise that Darius Rucker is delighted by the critical and commercial success of his first country album, Learn To Live, and very proud of the #1 single, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It". And his delight only increased as his second single, "It Won't Be Like This For Long," also landed atop all three country singles charts. Darius Rucker feels grateful that the millions of fans that knew him as the voice of Hootie & The Blowfish, the Grammy-winning group whose album sold more than 16 million copies, happily followed the singer/songwriter in his natural evolution to country music.

The modern genesis of Modern West began when Kevin’s wife, Christine, encouraged him to reconnect with his love of music. However, the history of the band goes back over 20 years when Kevin met John Coinman in a dirty, downtown warehouse in Los Angeles during an acting workshop. John was a musician with an intense interest in acting and Kevin was an actor with an intense interest in music. They became friends and began to play and write music together along with another friend, Blair Forward.

6. Zac Brown Band with Sonia Leigh and Blackberry Smoke:

Date: 29 Jul 2011
Time: 8:00 PM
Cost: $38.00 / $45.00 / $58.00

After an eventful year on the charts and on the road, Grammy-Award winning Zac Brown Band has proven that "overnight success" can be years in the making. New fans drawn by the irresistible hit singles, the awe-inspiring musicianship and dynamic live shows might have thought the Zac Brown Band emerged from nowhere. In fact, the band has paid its dues for years and put in its time for just this moment, it may have happened quickly, but it's definitely built to last.

Zac Brown Band's second major label studio album 'You Get What You Give' was released in September 2010 featuring guest appearances by Alan Jackson and Jimmy Buffett. As Zac explained, "It's a defining record... Every step of it's done the right way and I expect people are really going to love this record and see the depth of our musicianship, we're always growing. Not that we've arrived at any grand finale or anything, but the progress from this last record to this one, it's tremendous and I'm proud of it."

Sonia Leigh is a singer/songwriter hailing from Atlanta, Georgia recently signed with Zac Brown's Southern Ground Records. Unlike so many other performers, Sonia easily and immediately establishes a bond with her audience by the sincerity of her haunting voice, soulful lyrics, excellent musicianship and sultry appearance. Sonia Leigh breaks the rules with her edge and vocals that pierce the spirit and lyrics that leave the fans singing along. A little bit of country flavored with a pinch of Rock and Roll, with the passion of the blues, Sonia Leigh has developed a sound that is all her own.

Atlanta based Blackberry Smoke continues to grow into the premiere Southern Rock band of America. Over the last 12 months they have shared the stage with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock, Shooter Jennings, Cross Canadian Ragweed and countless others. The band has recently finished recording their sophomore effort “Little Piece Of Dixie” with legendary producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts) and engineer Justin Niebank, released summer of 2009.

7. Toby Keith with Eric Church:

Date: 30 Jul 2011
Time: 8:00 PM
Cost: $38.00 / $45.00 / $58.00

Bullets In The Gun, Keith's 15th studio album, is a defining career milestone. But then, so have been each of his previous releases. And that's the real point. Any attempt to explain, qualify or quantify Toby Keith that doesn't start and end with the full breadth of his music is radically misdirected. For it is in his music – the art and craft of it and, just as significantly, the unwavering embrace of the audience – that we can best define a songwriter/performer now in his 18th consecutive year at the top of the charts.

Carefully crafted from nearly two decades of experience or fearlessly captured in the moment, music is the measure for Keith. Which is why the descriptions he has most willingly accepted for himself over the years are, fittingly: Singer, songwriter and entertainer. Bullets In The Gun finds all three, and Toby Keith, in high definition.

When Nashville singer-songwriter Eric Church issued his debut Capitol CD in 2006, he was astonished when he took its songs on the road. Within months, a cult of rabid followers assembled, packing his shows, singing along to every word, driving hundreds of miles to see him and "spreading the gospel" of his extraordinary music. The nation’s music critics agreed with the fans. "Sinners Like Me" was lauded by The Los Angeles Times, People, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter and USA Today, as well as a host of country publications. The New York Times called it "a strong candidate for country album of the year." Thanks to Eric Church's sizable fan base, "Sinners Like Me" made it into the Top 10 on the country album charts.
