Chris Knight (Kody West opens)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 8 PM

Chris Knight doesn’t like to say much. He won’t chat about his worldview or engage in conversations on his creative approach. For 15 years, 7 acclaimed albums and a hard-nosed career, Knight has always let his music do most of the talking. And on record – as well everywhere across America, from roadhouse taverns to major-city concert halls – his songs have had plenty to say. But with his album Little Victories, Chris Knight has taken the discussion to a whole new level. So after 15 years, 8 albums and a still uncompromised reputation as one of the best singer/songwriters in America, what has Chris Knight learned from it all? “I’ve learned that I’m pretty lucky to do what I do and make a living at it,” he says.

Midnight River Choir (The New Offenders open)
Tickets: $10 | Doors: 8 PM

The story of Midnight River Choir is proof that sometimes great bands just happen. One night, four strangers ended up on a late night float trip down the Guadalupe River. As they made their way down the river singing songs, the beautiful harmonies floated into the heads of sleeping campers. The next morning, the boys overheard a man telling a friend that he was “awakened by a midnight river choir.” That was all it took. Eric Middleton (lead singer and guitarist), Justin Nelson (lead guitarist), Jeromy Yager (former bassist), and Mitchell Pyeatt (drummer), realized the magic of their combined talents and began writing and performing together under that River-God given name. The formation of Midnight River Choir was nothing short of a force of nature that now translates seamlessly during their live shows. This band needs no labels or comparisons. Their music speaks volumes about who and what they are. Their lives have been woven together by a strong thread of energy both on and off stage. That energy is raw and natural and soaked up from the earth through their bare feet. They believe that what you get is what you give and they give everything they have to their crowds. When that kind of energy lands back at the feet of the boys it is something of supreme intensity. And no one ever forgets it.

Going on four decades of keeping the pilot light on Western swing, Ray Benson and Asleep At The Wheel have earned multiple Grammy Awards, and kept a buzz on a genre that might be described as “fringe”, while maintaining a musical integrity that has never wavered. It’s been over 30 years since the birth of this musical American landmark, which has yielded the band 23 albums and 20 Grammy nominations. The long time veterans of Gruene Hall bring the full band to the stage for what is always a stellar performance. Asleep at the Wheel has always worn its affinity for Bob Wills proudly, but never more so than on its most recent album, Still The King, released March 2015.

Jack Ingram (Charlie & The Regrets open)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

When Jack Ingram won the 2008 Academy of Country Music award for “Best New Male Vocalist,” thousands of people in the audience had to be smiling to themselves about that whole “new” thing. They knew the thirty-something, steel-eyed veteran accepting that trophy on that stage in Vegas had been rocking roadhouses, theaters and stadiums relentlessly since 1997, that he’d been celebrated by critics and fans of hard-core country music for more than a decade, and that as a Texas-born songwriter and performer, he’d been on the short list of next generation artists who could fill the boots of Lone Star legends like Willie and Waylon and the boys. But the award did mean that Ingram, after trials and setbacks that would have buckled other artists, had at last matched the commercial success he’d always wanted with the integrity on which he’d always insisted. So he told the crowd with no small measure of pride and triumph that night that “big dreams and high hopes” can come true. As if to validate and amplify that truth, Ingram remained in the forefront of country music with his album Big Dreams & High Hopes, the seventh studio disc of his career. Inspired by the music of his heroes Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and many others, Ingram’s latest album, Midnight Motel, is his first album in seven years and was released in August 2016.

Charlie Daniels (Scooter Brown Band opens)
Tickets: $59.50 | Doors: 7 PM

From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape than Charlie Daniels. Formed in 1972, The Charlie Daniels Band scored its first hit with the top ten “Uneasy Rider.” Since then, the CDB has populated radio with such memorable hits as “Long Haired Country Boy,” “The South’s Gonna Do It Again,” “In America,” “The Legend of Wooley Swamp” and of course, his signature song, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia,” which won a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in 1979, as well as single of the year at the Country Music Association Awards. The band’s latest release, “Off the Grid – Doin’ It Dylan,” features 10 Bob Dylan songs by CDB, and is their first CDB studio release since 2007. Over the course of his career, Charlie has received numerous accolades, including induction into the Grand Ole Opry and Musicians Hall of Fame. He’s been presented the Pioneer Award by the Academy of Country Music and was honored as a BMI Icon in recognition of his songwriting. He’s received a star on the Music City Walk of Fame.

Frankie Ballard (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $20 | DOORS: 8 PM

When Frankie Ballard was growing up in Battle Creek, Michigan, his father played him one classic album over and over again: Marty Robbins’ Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs, featuring Robbins’ signature hit “El Paso.” Now Ballard, a quick-draw guitarist and rough-hewn singer, has cut his own metaphorical gunfighter album, decamping from Nashville to a gritty El Paso studio to record the follow-up to his 2014 breakout Sunshine & Whiskey. For Ballard, who scored three consecutive Number One singles off Sunshine & Whiskey – “Helluva Life,” the title track and “Young & Crazy” – it was imperative that he leave behind the safety of Nashville for the wilds of the Mexico border. Setting up shop at the famed Sonic Ranch, Ballard, producer Marshall Altman and his band threw themselves headlong into the music, eating and sleeping at the studio. The goal: make a bona fide album. Ballard’s latest album, El Rio, was released in June 2016 and debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 68 and on the Top Country Albums chart at No. 9.

Nikki Lane & JD McPherson Nikki Lane: 8-9 pm
JD McPherson: 9:30 pm
Tickets: $25 | Doors: 7 PM

You could mistake JD McPherson for a revivalist, given how few other contemporary artists are likely to assert, as he boldly does, that “’Keep a Knockin’ by Little Richard is the best record ever made. It’s so insanely visceral, you feel like it’s going to explode your speakers. If I’m listening to that in the car, I find myself having to brake suddenly. I can listen to that and it makes me feel like I’m 20 feet tall. And the feeling of joy I get from that record is always going to be the real push behind trying to make music.” But in a very real sense, McPherson is much more a pioneer than roots resuscitator. Let the Good Times Roll, his second album, is a stranger, and more personal affair than its Fats Domino-redolent title might at first suggest, but the name isn’t exactly ironic, either. If you, too, brake for pleasure, you’ll screech to a halt at the enrapturing sound of these Good Times. His first album, 2012’s Signs & Signifiers, was hailed as “an utterly irresistible, slicked-back triumph” by Mojo and “a rockin’, bluesy, forward-thinking gold mine that subtly breaks the conventions of most vintage rock projects” by All Music Guide.

Nikki Lane’s stunning third album Highway Queen, out February 17th, 2017, sees the young Nashville singer emerge as one of country and rock’s most gifted songwriters. Co-produced by Lane and fellow singer-songwriter, Jonathan Tyler, this emotional tour-de-force was recorded at Matt Pence’s Echo Lab studio in Denton, Texas as well as at Club Roar with Collin Dupuis in Nashville, Tennessee. Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and vintage Sixties country-pop swagger, Lane’s new music will resonate as easily with Lana Del Rey and Jenny Lewis fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty. In 2014, Lane’s second album All or Nothin’ (New West) solidified her sandpaper voice beneath a ten-gallon hat as the new sound and look of outlaw country music. Produced by Dan Auerbach, the record’s bluesy Western guitars paired with Lane’s Dusty Springfield-esque voice earned glowing reviews from NPR, the Guardian and Rolling Stone.

Jon Wolfe (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 8 PM

The best introduction to Jon Wolfe is the basic yet not so simple fact that he’s a country singer and songwriter. And to learn his life story — from small town Oklahoma to the bustling big city commodities trading floor to the dancehalls and honky-tonks of Texas and Oklahoma to Music Row. Wolfe’s 2010 album “It All Happened in a Honky Tonk” introduced a modern country singer/songwriter whose music struck a perfect balance between the best country traditions and contemporary energy and vision. Warner Music Nashville re-released this album in 2013 as a Deluxe Edition. “I feel connected with the tradition,” Wolfe concludes. “There’s something a little bigger than just my dreams going on in country music. That’s why I feel so strongly about doing what I do.” And to make it all even sweeter, “I’m doing what I love.”

Shinyribs (Opening Band - TBA)
Tickets: $15 | Doors: 8 PM

Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey that began in Beaumont, TX when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed, along with a sewing machine, a billy club and a box of comic books. Luckily, he chose the guitar. Following his family’s oil boom and bust migratory path he landed in Shreveport, LA where he formed his first band. Picket Line Coyotes was a Husker Du meets Elvis Costello hybrid that lived and died between the “Arklatexabamassippi” borders much like their unfortunate animal namesake. That’s what took him to Austin where The Gourds were born from those Coyote ashes. That storied band of pumpkins came to an end after 18 years of good times and hard travelin’. From that point on Russell, has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit, truly something not to be missed. It’s a unique musical experience and an original expression of colorful musical heritage.

Los Lobos (The Last Bandoleros open)
Tickets: $35 | Doors: 7 PM

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984. Perez, the band’s drummer, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Three decades, two more Grammys, a worldwide smash single (“La Bamba”) and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973. Steve Berlin is Los Lobos’ saxophonist, flutist and harmonica player who met the band while still with seminal L.A. rockers The Blasters. He joined the group after performing on and co-producing (with T-Bone Burnett) their breakthrough 1983 EP …And A Time To Dance. Hidalgo, the band’s lead vocalist/guitarist (whose arsenal includes accordion, percussion, bass, keyboards, melodic, drums, violin and banjo) met Perez at Garfield High in East LA and started a garage band. Rosas, who plays guitar and mandolin, had his own group, and Lozano launched a power trio. As Los Lobos celebrated their fourth decade together, they looked back at their roots in acoustic music with 2013’s Disconnected in New York City and in 2015, Los Lobos released the bold and eclectic album Gates of Gold.

Charley Pride (Opening Band - TBA)
TICKETS: $79.50 | DOORS: 7 PM

Becoming a trailblazing Country Music superstar was an improbable destiny for Charley Pride, especially considering his humble beginnings as a sharecropper’s son on a cotton farm in Sledge, Mississippi. Charley unofficially started his music career in the late 1950s as a ballplayer with the Negro American League’s Memphis Red Sox singing and playing guitar on the team bus between ballparks. After a tryout with the New York Mets, Pride decided to return to his Montana home via Nashville. In 1966, Chet Atkins took Charley under his wing, nurtured his talent and oversaw a shrewd promotional campaign that successfully navigated the racial challenges of mid-1960s America. Charley’s single “Just Between You and Me” caught fire in 1967, breaking into the Top-10 Country chart and garnering Charley his first Grammy nomination. He quickly became Country Music’s first African-American superstar. Between 1967 and 1987, he amassed no fewer than 52 Top-10 Country hits. In 1971, Charley won two Grammy Awards. Later that year, his #1 crossover hit “Kiss An Angel Good Mornin” sold over a million singles and helped him to win the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year award and the ‘Top Male Vocalist’ awards of 1971 and 1972, and also brought him a ‘Best Male Country Vocal Performance’ Grammy Award in 1972. Some of Charley’s unforgettable hits include “All I Have To Offer You Is Me,” “Is Anybody Goin’ to San Antone,” “Amazing Love,” “Mississippi Cotton Pickin’ Delta Town,” “Burgers and Fries,” “Roll On Mississippi” and “Mountain of Love.” In 1993, Pride was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry and in 1994, Pride was honored by the Academy of Country Music with its prestigious Pioneer Award. In 2000, Pride was honored with an induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Aaron Watson with special guest Bri Bagwell
TICKETS: $29 | DOORS: 7 PM

Aaron Watson isn’t interested in what someone else thinks he should do. But instead of getting lonely as he sidesteps expectations, he’s gaining followers – hundreds of thousands of them. Delivered with a warm smile and fueled by a wild spirit, Watson’s rebellion echoes the land that helped make him. Throughout his 17-year career that spans a dozen albums and more than 2,500 shows throughout the U.S. and Europe, 39-year-old Watson has stubbornly and sincerely identified with the everyman – even as he’s proven to be the exception to the rule. The latest evidence of Watson’s homespun singularity is Vaquero, an ambitious 16-song set of character-driven storytelling, level-headed cultural commentary, and love songs for grown-ups that promise to further solidify his status as one of today’s finest torch-bearers of real country music.
