Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery

It's official: Scotty McCreery with special guests Kat Perkins & Janae Sturma head to The District  Friday, March 27, 2015! Tickets are on sale now via online or at the Woodfire Grill, and range from $37.50 (Advanced GA) to $47.50 (Advanced VIP). VIP doors open at 6 p.m., GA doors at 7, with music starting at 7:30 p.m. 

With album sales of more than 2.3 million, Scotty McCreery has emerged as one of country’s hottest new stars. In just three years, he has earned a Gold and Platinum album, three Platinum singles, and two consecutive album debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. After winning Season Ten of “American Idol,” Scotty released his debut album, which was the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. Indeed, he became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart.

His current album, See You Tonight, released in October 2013, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. He co-wrote five songs on the album, including the first single, “See You Tonight,” which was also certified Platinum and became his first Top Ten hit. The music video for “See You Tonight” spent an impressive 11 weeks at No. 1 on GAC’s fan-voted “Top 20 Countdown.” The album received rave reviews from publications ranging from Rolling Stone and People to “Entertainment Tonight” and The Los Angeles Times. Soon after its release, he won the Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist Award at the 2013 American Country Awards and was ranked No. 2 on Country Weekly’s “Country’s Sexiest Men Poll” of 2014. McCreery’s next single, “Feelin’ It,” became his second consecutive Top Ten hit.

Kat Perkins is an American singer and songwriter from Scranton, North Dakota. She appeared on The Voice season 6 and advanced to the television show's semifinals, and recently released her first single in August of 2014.

Cole Swindell

Cole Swindell

Up and rising country star Cole Swindell heads to the Hard Rock Casino (at the Anthem) on Friday, April 3rd at 8 p.m.! Tickets are almost sold out - only floor GA tickets are available!

Now and then, a song and artist can’t be denied.

A few months back, Cole Swindell was nothing more or less than a terrific songwriter with a Nashville publishing deal and a growing reputation as one of the city’s most exciting young performers. Now, he’s on the road to stardom.

The gateway is “Chillin’ It,” a song as infectious and groove-laden as anything out there, with a laid-back summertime charm that perfectly captures the guy who wrote and performs it. Independent radio airplay and social media quickly turned it into a sensation that sold more than 125,000 copies, although Cole was unsigned and the song was only available online! A sold-out performance at a 600-seat club in Atlanta did the rest. It was attended by Nashville label reps wanting to see if the kid from tiny Bronwood, Georgia, could put on stage what he had put on CD. The offers that poured in from virtually every major label meant the answer was an absolute “yes.”

In fact, Cole’s high-energy show wins converts every time he steps in front of a crowd, whether as a headliner in a club or as an opening act in front of 20,000 people. “I don’t want to have a song where people feel comfortable going to get a beer,” he says. “Once we get started, I don’t want them to risk missing what’s next. I want them to leave saying, ‘That’s the best show I’ve ever seen.’”

As anyone who’s seen him perform can attest, it’s working, and now, with “Chillin’ It” hitting airwaves everywhere, fans nationwide can get their first look at one of country’s most compelling performers. “The folks who are buying music just want to have fun,” he says, “and ‘Chillin’ It’ is the perfect song to introduce me to them. It isn’t a full-out party song, and it isn’t serious. Like it says, it’s just a chill song, and that’s just me.”

Join Globetrotter stars after the game where they will stay for an autograph, photograph and high five session for fans (subject to availability).

The Globetrotters will face a great challenge this year, as the infamous Washington Generals are more determined than ever to beat the Globetrotters.The Generals, the last team to beat the Globetrotters, are now coached by a former member of that 1971 team. They are on a mission and will do whatever it takes to win, with a new strategy that is sure to give the Globetrotters a run for their money.

Deana Carter

Deana Carter

Deana Carter is heading to the Wild Rose Casino on Saturday, May 9th at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale now for either concert via online.

Drenched in sun-kissed natural beauty both inside and out, Deana Carter didn’t take a seemingly easy route to stardom, but instead chose to defy the conventional expectations of the typical Nashville artist blueprint and make her own mark. And she did, undeniably taking the industry and fans by storm with her wildly successful multi-platinum international debut "Did I Shave My Legs For This?" more than a decade ago.

Anchored by the dreamy super hit “Strawberry Wine,” Carter showcased her own blend of country and retro-rock sprinkled with the folksy singer/songwriter qualities that have garnered Deana Carter well-deserved respect and wild acclaim.

As always, US95 is your country concert connection -- stay tuned for chances to win tickets!

Alan Jackson’s 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR will be a memorable celebration for his longtime fans as well as legions of new fans who are discovering his music through the many songs that have withstood the test of time and influenced many new artists of today like the tour’s special guests Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous including his massive debut hit, “Here In The Real World” to “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” the summertime party-anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” and many, many more.

Jackson’s tour is an extension of the already year-long 25th anniversary celebration which kicked off this summer with the opening of his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country, which will run through March 2015. This month the multi-platinum selling Grammy winner is also playing two record-breaking sold out shows at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater making him the first simultaneous artist-in-residence and major museum exhibit subject.

Alan Jackson has been steadfast in his love for traditional music while enjoying major chart success. Since signing his record deal in June 1989, he has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide and ranks as one of the 10 best-selling country artists of all-time. He has released more than 60 singles—registering 50 Top Ten hits and 35 #1s (including 26 Billboard #1s). He has earned more than 150 music industry awards—including 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, a pair of Grammys and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards. He is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.

Alan Jackson is one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music. He is in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who’ve written more than 20 songs that they’ve recorded and taken to the top of the charts. Jackson is one of the best-selling artists since the inception of SoundScan, ranking alongside the likes of Eminem and Metallica.

California native and Capitol Records rising country star Jon Pardi released his debut album, Write You A Song, on Jan. 14, 2014. The release features his Gold-certified Top 10 tune “Up All Night,” along with hits “What I Can’t Put Down,” “Missin’ You Crazy” and his brand new “When I’ve Been Drinkin.’” Pardi has a laid back, fun-loving approach towards life and it comes through in his music and his raucous live show. His charisma and authenticity strike a chord with county audiences, as he wins over fans one-by-one and show-by-show.

Pardi’s sound is undeniably country — paying homage to some of his musical heroes such as Dwight Yoakam, George Strait and Alan Jackson. Discovering his ability for performance back at the tender age of three when he sang ALABAMA, Alan Jackson and Hank Williams, Jr. karaoke with his grandmother, Pardi has since shared the stage with Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church and many more of today’s hottest country artists.

Brandy Clark’s debut album, 12 Stories, was named the best album of 2013 in any genre by New York Magazine’s Jody Rosen, New York Post’s Michaelangelo Matos, NPR’s Ann Powers, Slate, and Boston Globe’s Sara Rodman. The album was the No. 2 record for Fresh Air’s Ken Tucker and a top 10 choice for Los Angeles Times’ Randall Roberts and The New Yorker’s Sasha Frere-Jones, among many others. She earned two 2014 CMA nominations (one for New Artist of the Year, the other for Song of the Year for co-writing Kacey Musgraves’ hit “Follow Your Arrow” with Musgraves and Shane McAnally), won the 2014 Music Row Breakthrough Artist Award, and toured with Eric Church and Jennifer Nettles. She also opened for Loretta Lynn at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. When reviewing 12 Stories, Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times wrote, “This is the country debut of the year.” Rolling Stone’s Will Hermes noted, “Her debut is all airtight craftsmanship, sly wit and precise detailing that treats mainstream style like artisanal fast food.” New York Magazine’s Rosen remarked, “She’s a brisk, vivid, witty storyteller; her tunes unfold in old-fashioned weepers and chugging honkytonk, with fiddles, pedal steel, and vocal harmonies driving home the punch lines and pathos,” while NPR’s Powers called her “A storyteller of the highest caliber.” Hitfix’s Melinda Newman wrote that Clark was “the best new artist country radio isn’t playing” and that 12 Stories “made almost every music critics’ best of 2013 list for its heart, wit, smart wordplay, and Clark’s expressive vocals.”

Clark was nominated for her first GRAMMY Award earlier this year for Best Country Song for “Mama’s Broken Heart,” (a song she co-wrote with McAnally and Musgraves) which Miranda Lambert took to No. 1. That song also earned Clark her first CMA and ACM nominations, both for Song of the Year. She also wrote The Band Perry’s No. 1 hit “Better Dig Two” with McAnally and Trevor Rosen. Other artists to record her songs include Sheryl Crow, Reba McEntire, Kacey Musgraves, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, Gretchen Wilson, and more. For more information visit

The Eagles

The Eagles

The Eagles bring their "History of the Eagles" Tour to the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center on Thursday, June 4 at 8 pm.

Tickets are $175, $109, $75, and $45 - on sale Saturday, March 21 at 10 am at the Keloland Box Office, online through, charge-by-phone at 1-800-745-3000, and all Ticketmaster outlets.

The Eagles have added late spring and summer 2015 concerts to the “History of the Eagles.” The tour, which kicked off July 6, 2013 following the release of the band’s acclaimed, top-selling documentary of the same name, features classic Eagles’ songs spanning their entire career, including some that have never been performed live. A limited number of VIP Ticket Packages will be available and may include Premium Seats, Pre-Show Party, Exclusive Merchandise & more!

No other band did as much to translate the explosively creative, politicized rock of the 1960s into the massively popular, de-politicized rock of the 1970s as the Eagles. Specializing in broadly appealing, masterfully crafted tunes, the southern California band has sold more than 100 million albums. The 1976 compilation, Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, was the first album ever certified platinum and has sold 29 million copies in the U.S., second only to Michael Jackson's Thriller on the all-time list.

Aaron Watson

Aaron Watson

The Aaron Watson show originally scheduled at The District on Thursday, March 5th has been rescheduled to Thursday, June 11th!

All US95 ticket winners will be honored at the rescheduled show. All current ticket holders will also be honored at the rescheduled show. This is an all ages show, with doors opening at 8 p.m., the show at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale now via The District's Woodfire Grill or online. Cost is $12 in advance or $17 at the door, with all tickets standing general admission. 

Aaron Watson has been through a lot in his twelve-year career: eleven albums, the birth of four children, countless hours on the road and many more still spent toiling away at his guitar, writing songs with Jesus on one shoulder and the ghost of Waylon Jennings on the other, making the country tunes he was born to play. But a year ago, the music nearly stopped for this lone star legend from Amarillo, Texas. Watson and his wife lost their newest daughter, Julia Grace, just shortly after her birth. And this man, who lives and breathes his craft, fell silent.

“I thought the last thing I want to do is make music, to get up there and sing,” Watson says, his Texas accent strong and smooth as molasses. “So I said, ‘God, I don’t think I can do this. If music is what you need me to do, then I need some help. Because I can’t write a song to save my life.’ And over the next month I wrote a record like it was no big deal – and I think it’s my best one yet.”

The resulting album is titled Real Good Time, and it’s testament to the power of music to lift us out from our lowest moments and bring joy and salvation though the wail of the fiddle, twang of a steel guitar or note of Watson’s rich voice. He’d give all the credit to God, but it’s also the result of a long career inspired by the greats of country music – George Strait, Chris Ledoux, Willie Nelson, Jennings. His music has formed into a unique sound that is at once both purely new, and representative of a grand, southern tradition. Because, as Watson points out, “country music, real country music, is cool. It’s the coolest there is.”

The Big Revival Tour

The Big Revival Tour

Kenny Chesney brings The Big Revival Tour to the Denny Sanford Premier Center on June 18, 2015, along with Chase Rice! Tickets go on sale March 6 at 10 a.m. sharp!

With nearly two dozen NFL-sized stadiums plays slated for this summer, Kenny Chesney took a good look at his remaining dates and thought about the show he was planning for this tour. Knowing each venue has individual needs – and scaling down from stadium- size, especially the amphitheaters, can remove some of the impact, he chose carefully.

“For all the time we had to create for the Big Revival Tour,” Chesney says, “I wanted to make sure the fans got to experience it. I love amphitheaters and all the fun... But I want to give the fans the same impact with the show, because The Big Revival’s set up to be pretty special.”

“I can’t begin to describe the difference spending the time and being able to really focus on creating an album in terms of the songs, the production, the intensity,” Chesney says. “It feels like the same way we put this year’s tour together! We had more time to consider what we wanted, so we were able to get more creative and could dream a little more wide open... “

A year away from the fans, whether people realize it or not, is hard on me. I live to play – as much as I live to write songs and make music. So I’m ready to get out there and play this new music for people. I want give them a taste of how good The Big Revival is -- and hear them singing ‘Til It’s Gone,’ ‘American Kids’ or even ‘The Big Revival’ back to me!”

Having sold in excess of a million tickets each of his headlining tours, Chesney is the only Country Artist in Billboard’s Top 10 Tour Acts of the Last 25 years – and that’s with only 12 years as a headliner. After his first stadium concert – 2003’s Neyland Stadium show, selling over 60,000 tickets in Knoxville – Chesney has played 111 football stadium shows in total.

“It’s a different kind of show, a different kind of energy – and what the fans bring in that environment hits every one of us onstage so hard,” Chesney says of the rush. “Every show is incredible, but there’s something about those really big ones. I think we were able to channel some of that excitement into the songs on this record – and I want to see if we can bring that intensity to the arenas and the few amphitheaters we’re playing this summer.”

The Big Revival, his 13th #1 Billboard Country Album debut, already yielded his 25th #1 with the multiple week chart-topper “American Kids,” also nominated for Best Country Song at the Grammys. “’Til It’s Gone,” the follow-up, is poised just outside #1 this week with a bullet.

Even the critics concur. Rolling Stone offered The Big Revival “continuously brings a sense of musical energy and emotional urgency.” while USA Today called it, “a coming-of-age tale full of life-changing memories” and The Associated Press wrote, “avoids the cliches flowing through contemporary country songs by injecting some real-life gravitas.”

“This new music takes the show to a whole other level,” Chesney says. “I’m so ready to get out there with the fans... and I think it’s gonna be a summer you won’t forget.”
