ABOUT GARY:

With the allure of a modern-day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances.

He sells out venues as a headliner from NY to LA, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Aaron Lewis and Blackberry Smoke @ the East KY Expo

Aaron Lewis and Blackberry Smoke will team up for the “Sinners and Sanctified Tour” this fall. The tour will come to Pikeville to the East Kentucky Expo Center on Saturday, October 28th. Tickets on-sale 10:00 a.m. Friday, July 21st .

About Aaron Lewis

Aaron Lewis, the self-proclaimed “Northern Redneck” and Staind front man, achieved critical and commercial success with his latest album, SINNER, which earned him the #1 position on the Billboard Top 200 Albums, Top Country Albums and Top Digital Albums Charts upon release. The 12-track project, voted one of Whiskey Riff’s 40 Best Country Albums of 2016, was recorded in 16 hours at Nashville’s Blackbird Studios with producer Buddy Cannon (George Strait, Merle Haggard, George Jones). Lewis penned eight of the songs, in addition to covering Chris Stapleton’s “Whiskey and You” and The Dixie Chicks’ “Travelin’ Soldier.” Additionally, Lewis collaborates with Willie Nelson on the album’s title track while Grammy Award-winning artists Alison Krauss, Dan Tyminski and Vince Gill are also featured. SINNER was also one of Billboard’s 10 Best Country Albums of 2016, while The Boot raves, “Aaron Lewis shows a surprising understanding and respect for country music with his latest album, SINNER. Drawing from his childhood influences of listening to country music in his grandfather’s car, SINNER shows Aaron’s abilities as a singer, songwriter, musician and stylist. SINNER might just be the record that propels Aaron to a permanent place in country music.”

About Blackberry Smoke

Blackberry Smoke’s acclaimed new album Like An Arrow debuted at No. 1 on both Billboard’s Country Albums and Americana Albums charts as well as No. 3 on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart. Recorded just outside of the band’s native Atlanta at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, GA, the 12-track album was self-produced and features very special guest Gregg Allman on the album’s closing track, “Free On The Wing.” Of the album, American Songwriter praises, “…Blackberry Smoke fills the bill for the next generation of gutsy, heartfelt and honest Southeast rocking with plenty of talent, tons of drive and no apologies,” while the Boston Globe asserts, “…the needle can be dropped on Like An Arrow until its grooves become as well-worn as the classic albums that inspired this band of country-rock workhorses.” Named “Country music’s most ferocious live band” by Rolling Stone, Blackberry Smoke has toured relentlessly since their debut in in 2001, building a strong and loyal community of fans. The five-piece band is made up of: Charlie Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards).
