Sammy Kershaw kicks off the series on January 12. Since his debut on the music scene in the early 90’s, Kershaw has remained one of the most consistent power hitters in country music—both with a chain of major hit records and sell-out touring schedules. His platinum albums were propelled into the records books by hits such as “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful,” “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore,” “National Working Woman’s Holiday,” “Love Of My Life,” “Cadillac Style,” “Don’t Go Near The Water,” “Haunted Heart,” along with many other milestones.

Grammy Award-winning folk band Old Crow Medicine Show brings its unique brand of roots music to the stage on January 18 along with special guest Willie Watson.  The night will include the critically acclaimed Paint This Town, Old Crow Medicine Show’s first album of all original material in five years, released in 2022.  Inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2013, Old Crow Medicine Show found its following with such hits as Country Music Association Song of the Year, “Wagon Wheel.” The group’s 25th Anniversary was marked in 2023 with the release of their latest album, Jubilee, which was just nominated for Best Folk Album at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

Legendary recording artist and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Smokey Robinson will bring his iconic voice to the stage January 20. With hits such as his first solo top ten Pop single, “Cruisin,'” and his sensual ballad, “Being with You,” his name is synonymous with Motown Records, as leader of the Miracles, as a solo artist, as a songwriter, as a producer and, along with Berry Gordy Jr., as a founding father of the company. The writer of more than 1,000 songs, Robinson’s songwriting efforts resulted in a bevy of major hits for The Miracles, like “I Second That Emotion,” “Going to a Go Go,” “You Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Tears of a Clown,” and one of the most memorable, “The Tracks of My Tears.”

ODD EYE CIRCLE, a three-member K-Pop girl group unit under Modhaus, consisting of members Kim Lip, Jinsoul, And Choerry, have captured the attention of international fans with their 2017 debut album, ‘Mix & Match,’ charting on Billboard’s “The Best K-pop Songs of 2017” and “The 100 Greatest K-Pop Songs of the 2010s” charts. The ODD EYE CIRCLE “Volume Up” tour started in Europe with fascinating tracks and choreography that allows the group to showcase who they are. ODD EYE CIRCLE invites fans into their unique universe through the proven setlist and live performances. Now, fans in the USA will have a one-time experience witnessing the first tour of ODD EYE CIRCLE. They are ready to create unforgettable memories as a perfect gift at the beginning of 2024.

Two-time 2020 GRAMMY® winner Tanya Tucker had her first country hit, the classic “Delta Dawn,” at the age of 13 in 1972 and since that auspicious beginning, she has become one of the most admired and influential artists in country music history. Tucker has brought together 23 Top 40 albums and a stellar string of 56 Top 40 singles, ten of which reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard country charts. Tanya’s indelible songs include some of country music’s biggest hits such as “Soon,” “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,” “It’s a Little Too Late,” “Trouble,” “Texas (When I Die),” “If It Don’t Come Easy” and “Strong Enough To Bend.” Tanya is also the recipient of numerous awards, including two CMAs, two ACMs and three CMT awards. In 2020, Tanya received two GRAMMY® Awards for Best Country Album: While I’m Livin’ and Best Country Song: “Bring My Flowers Now.”  Tanya Tucker has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket goes to supporting Farm Air and their work to cultivate a vibrant, just and resilient family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.

Country Music favorites Pam Tillis and Little Texas will share the stage February 1. Tillis is three-time CMA award winner including the prestigious 1994’s Female Vocalist of The Year Award. She has been nominated multiple times for Grammy’s Best Female Country Vocal Performance:  in 1993 for “Maybe It Was Memphis;” in 1996 for “Mi Vida Loca;” and in 1998 for “All The Good Ones Are Gone.” Pam is also proud to be a nine-time Academy of Country Music Award nominee, a two-time Grammy award winner and six-time Grammy nominee, and an American Music Award’s nominee.

In the early 1990s, as a new era of country music took hold, Little Texas burst onto the scene with their debut album, ‘First Time for Everything,’ featuring songs exclusively written, recorded, and performed by the band members. Quickly rising to prominence, they became one of the top vocal bands of the decade, earning the title of the “Hardest Working Band in Country Music” with over seven million units sold across eight albums and thousands of shows. Little Texas achieved notable success with 12 Top 20 singles, including seven Top 10s and three consecutive number one hits: “What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas,” and “My Love.” The iconic ’90s band received multiple Grammy, CMA, and ACM nominations, clinching the ACM for Top Vocal Group in 1994.

Jamey Johnson’s 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 ambitious double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification. In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal, and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.  In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy-nominated Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard. In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named it the year’s best album.
