Headliner - Rodney Atkins
Rodney Atkins is an authentic as they come. Whether he’s taking in a baseball game with son Elijah or entertaining thousands of fans with one of his many mega-hits, Atkins expresses a refreshing simplicity and sincerity that reflects the values he holds so dear: Putting family first, making the most of what you have, and staying true to yourself in a rapidly-changing world.
With the February 2015 release of his first ever hits compilation, Rodney Atkins – Greatest Hits, the award-winning singer/songwriter shares 11 of his best-loved songs – including his six No. 1 smashes “Take A Back Road,” “It’s America,” “Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy),” “These Are My People,” “Watching You,” and “If You’re Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)” – and puts a fresh spin on the simple pleasures of everyday love with his brand new single, “Eat Sleep Love You Repeat.”
Rodney Atkins – Greatest Hits is Atkins’ fifth album via longtime label home Curb Records. Hit last studio album, Take A Back Road (produced by Ted Hewitt), yielded Atkin’s sixth career No. 1 hit and fastest-rising single to date with the title track. “Take A Back Road,” written by Luke Laird and Rhett Atkins, was also named Song of the Year at the 2012 BMI Awards and marked Rodney’s third Song of the Year win – “Watching You” (2007/Brian White) and “If You’re Going Through Hell” (2006/Sam and Annie Tate) also earned the title.
When he’s not in the studio working on new music, Rodney is working hard out on the road, connecting with loyal fans in cities across the county. An avid supporter of our military, he completed his third USO entertainment tour in Kuwait and Afghanistan in 2014, also one of the last entertainment tours in Afghanistan, and continues to headline dates across the country.

JT & The Gunslingers
Somewhere between Southern Rock and Country lays an area of music that is uniquely Midwestern. This is where JT & the Gunslingers like to ride. Since their first show in May of 2014 JT & the Gunslingers have been honing a sound that is somewhat rock and somewhat country that they attribute to being raised in the Midwest.
Just within their first year they have played with Nashville acts Jake McVey, Craig Morgan, and Montgomery Gentry. Already in 2016 they are contracted to play with Joe Diffie, Sammy Kershaw, and Sawyer Brown They released their first single to Country Radio across the Midwest in just 14 months of their first show. Their radio single “Our Town” features Tim Lauer (Keith Urban, Frankie Ballard) on piano and B3 and is also garnering attention from people in Music City.
These guys pack a wallop of talent into their shows that are always one helluva good time, whether it be a cozy bar or a 5,000-person festival, a formal wedding or a casual bonfire party! Armed with vintage instruments & amps, full PA system with DJ music between sets, and full lighting system, JT & the Gunslingers love to interact with and include the audience, and make EVERY time they play a special, memorable event!
The Plott Hounds
Formed in April of 2014 with an angst to revive the sounds and stories of county music with a rock and roll backbone. Heavily inspired by 70’s rockers of old – The Allman Brothers Band & Lynryd Skynryd. The Plott Hounds aim to put their own spin on the classic southern rock sound. One founded heavily on talented lead players, powerful lyrics and heaps of raw energy. It is music from the heartland of America, Part Southern, Part Midwest. They are best served live, with a cool beverage in hand. Their debut record “Living Free” was released on July 12, 2015 and their follow up album - “Thirsty For Something” was release on June 14, 2016.
