 Soul Asylum consists of Dave Pirner (guitar/vocals), Michael Bland (drums), Winston Rye (bass) and Justin Sharbono (guitar).  Their last full length album Delayed Reaction, produced by the band  and John Fields is melodic, anthemic, well-versed in the art of classic song-craft and was well received by both fans and critics.  They are currently in the process of recording an album of all new  material to be released in 2014.

TESLA

Tesla logo

TESLA is a multi-platinum-selling rock band from Northern California known for their melodic songs and down to earth appeal.  Thanks to their die-hard, loyal fan base and their younger generation offspring, TELSA, continues to tour to sold-out crowds around the world.  TESLA's 2009 FOREVER MORE tour in support of the new album of the same name, gives their audience a 25-year musical journey that keeps the loyal fans coming back and has newcomers realizing, "WOW, I didn't know they did that song!"  TESLA's album, Forever More contains the first single "I Wanna Live," along with "Breakin'  Free" and the self-titled track that opens the show nightly.

TESLA's first HAC (Hot AC) track off Forever More, "Fallin' Apart" is accompanied by a concept video available for viewing online.  The ballad is sure to touch the hearts of music fans, similar to the way their hit single and crowd favorite, "Love Song" did in years past.

TESLA's line-up consists of four of its original members: vocalist Jeff Keith, guitarist Frank Hannon, bassist Brian Wheat, and drummer Troy Luccketta and new guitarist Dave Rude who has brought a new energy and creativity to the band.  

TESLA was formed in Sacramento, CA in 1985, out of an earlier, locally popular group called City Kidd, which dated back to 1982.  The band wrote original music and knew their name didn't fit the sound.  At managment's suggestion the band named itself after the eccentric inventor Nikola TESLA, who pioneered the radio but was given only belated credit for doing so.

Trace Adkins

TA logo

Trace Adkins' 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, author, spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Program and the American Red Cross for whom he raised over $1.5 million dollars as winner of NBC's All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.  As a dedicated supporter of the troops, Adkins has performed 7 USO Tours.  

His autobiography, A Personal Stand: Observations and Opinions from a Freethinking Roughneck, recounts the former oil-rigger's rise to fame, battles with personal demons and life as the father of 5 daughters.  Trace played a tough as nails biker in the Lincoln Lawer (starring Mathew McConaughey), he developed and hosted the GAC's "Great American Heroes" and in December, he will host the American Country Awards on Fox for the fourth consecutive year.

Adkins' first-ever Christmas album, The King's Gift was released ahead of the 2013 holiday season.  The Celtic-inspired album of traditional carols "managed to sound fresh, thanks to that oh-so-deep voice and new arrangements" (The Associated Press).  The New York Times remarked on Adkins' signature sound as well, enthusing that "If you enjoy your holiday music album, "The King's Gift," is as close as you'll come."  Following the album's release, Adkins embarked on an 18 theatre run with The Christmas Show Tour - his own hybrid of a theatrical production and musical presentation.  This was a combination of a one-man show with anecdotes, humor and history as well as a traditional Christmas concert with Adkins' twelve-piece "Sarepta Syphony."  Billboard wrote that the show "reminded fans that he is (and always has been) the real deal vocally."

Ariat presents Josh Turner - Roughstock and Rambler Tour

Josh Turner

sUNDAY, JULY 27 at 5:00 PM

One of county music's most recognizeable hit-makers earning numberous CMA, ACM and GRAMMY nominations since the release of his debut album, Long Black Train, Josh Turner has sold more than five million albums and garnered four No. 1 hits (including three multi-week chart toppers): "Your Man," "Would You Go With Me," and "Why Don't We Just Dance" (a four-week No. 1 that was named the most played song of the year by 2010 MediaBase).  His song, "All Over Me," From Haywire also reached the top spot on the charts, making him one of only seven country artists to have two No. 1 hits in 2010.  

A Hannah, S.C. native, Turner has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created the Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts/music.  As a high school student he had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts in schools.

Turner released his fifth studio album, Punching Bag on June 12, 2012 which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.  The debut single, "Time is Love" was #1 on the Best of 2012 Billboard Country Chart.  The Associated Press says, "With Punching Bag, Turner once again proves he ranks among the most effective--and most hard-core-- country performers of his generation."
