Here’s a quick overview of the bookings thus far:

Jan. 22: The Mavericks: ‘En Español’ World Tour

Born of Cuban-American roots in Miami, and then long based in Nashville where members perfected their distinctive and eclectic Americana/roots fusion of country, rock and Tejano/Tex-Mex influences, The Mavericks decided to expand their musical palette even further last year with the release of their first All-Spanish-language album in celebration of the Latin cultural roots of co-founder/singer Raul Malo and guitarist Eddie Perez.

Feb. 2: Emmylou Harris

A 14-time Grammy winner and Billboard Century Award recipient, Emmylou Harris’ contribution as a singer and songwriter spans 40 years. She has recorded more than 25 albums and has lent her talents to countless fellow artists’ recordings. In recognition of her remarkable career, Harris was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2008 and earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2018.

Feb. 5: Wynonna Judd with The Big Noise

Respected by the millions of fans who are drawn to her music and undeniable talent, Judd’s rich and commanding voice has sold over 30-million albums worldwide spanning her remarkable 34-year career. As one-half of the legendary mother/daughter duo “The Judds,” Wynonna was once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.” This iconic performer has received more than 60 industry awards, with countless charting singles, including 20 No.1 hits such as “Mama He’s Crazy,” “Why Not me,” and “Grandpa, (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Ole Days).”

March 5: Chris Janson with Ray Fulcher &Shane Profitt

Breakout country star Chris Janson is a platinum-selling recording artist, high-octane entertainer, multi-instrumentalist, and award-winning singer/songwriter. The ACM Award-winner has collected prestigious accolades that place him amongst country music greats. Both his inspiring hit “Drunk Girl” and his chart-topping, triple-platinum smash “Buy Me A Boat” were named among Nashville Songwriters Association International’s “Ten Songs I Wish I’d Written” lists – making Janson one in a handful of the industry’s most elite artists to earn the title multiple times.

March 12: The British Invasion

“The British Invasion – Live on Stage” is an immersive multimedia show that will place audiences at the front and center of pop culture history. Huge projection period photos and original film footage recreate the era’s excitement, fashion and headlines while a full live band performs all of the hits of the sweet ‘60s, the iconic British pop sound that swept across America and the world.

March 13: Little Feat

“Little Feat: Waiting for Columbus Tour” with special guest Ida Mae. Making a truly great live rock and roll album is an enormous challenge, so difficult that they are a rarity. Waiting for Columbus is a consensus member of that very exclusive club. After two years of COVID-enforced silence, Little Feat has big plans for its return to the stage. Hard on the heels of their November “By Request” tour, the band’s March-April 2022 tour will celebrate the 45th anniversary of the legendary “Waiting for Columbus,” replicating the album at every stop.

March 18: Tower of Power

The great grooves and raucous party spirit of legendary soul-funk-R&B outfit Tower of Power, which celebrated its landmark 50th anniversary in 2018, has been a balm for the soul throughout the band’s half-century existence.
