Tickets are now on sale for the Vertical Horizon & Sister Hazel concert on July 20

Vertical Horizon & Sister Hazel

Vertical Horizon started rocking stages in the 1990s, gaining in popularity with its 1999 album: “Everything You Want.” The album sold over two million copies and the single of the same name reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Other top hits include “You’re a God” and “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning),” which was remade by Gary Allan and became a 2005 top 10 country hit. Vertical Horizon’s most recent album was released this year. The band collaborated with famous artists, including Rush drummer, Neil Peart. Decades later, fans are still drawn to the band’s high-energy shows—it’s an experience you won’t want to miss.

For more than 20 years, Sister Hazel has wooed crowds with musical skill that only comes with time, talent, and commitment. The band is known for top hits, including: “All For You,” “Change Your Mind,” and “Roll on Bye” from their 2018 EP “Water”. The band has a reputation for writing fun, uplifting songs but doesn’t associate with a specific type of music. They play country, southern rock, pop, acoustic, and alternative, pulling from their Nashville ties, collaborating with Darius Rucker. Even after years of rocking, the group feels they just keep getting better as artists and songwriters.

Tickets are now on sale for the Warrent concert on July 21


Warrant was founded in 1983 by teenagers Erik Turner and Jerry Dixon. The band’s first album—which includes “Sometimes She Cries” and “Heaven”—sold over three million copies and launched them into MTV stardom. Their sophomore album, Cherry Pie, spawned the massive hit by the same name, and the band became one of the top-grossing touring acts of 1991. Albums released in 2011 and 2017 put the band back on top Billboard music charts, and their recently recorded cover of Merle Haggard’s “I Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink” has been named the official song of the Professional Bull Riding Association. After more than three decades of rock, Warrant still tours all over the country.
