Tickets on sale now

Multi-platinum selling artist and “Here Tonight” hitmaker Brett Young will once again collaborate with Gavin DeGraw, announcing today that the pair will co-headline their upcoming show at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Friday, Mar. 22. Young & DeGraw’s friendship spans over a decade; they have been integral parts of each other’s lives with DeGraw even co-writing and singing on Young’s autobiographical “Chapters,” featured on his Ticket to LA album, but this is the first time they will share the stage as co-headliners. Tickets are already on sale to the public.

Young’s current single, “Here Tonight” continues its ascent on the Country charts this week, highlighting his “California-rooted smooth rock groove” (Nashville Lifestyles). Co-written alongside Ben Caver, Justin Ebach and Charles Kelley, “Here Tonight” has over 65 million streams in the U.S.

 

ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young’s sophomore release Ticket to L.A. (BMLG Records) debuted atop the Billboard Country Albums chart and follows his platinum self-titled debut, which dominated the Top 20 on the Country Albums chart for 37 weeks. Delivering four consecutive No. 1 platinum-certified hits, Young was named ASCAP’s 2018 Country Songwriter-Artist of the Year for his “melodic craftsmanship” (Billboard). He has also garnered nominations from ACM, Billboard, Teen Choice, CMT and CMA Awards as he continues to rack up nonstop hits as “one of country music’s most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean). Following his current headlining dates, Young is set to join Kelsea Ballerini on the Miss Me More Tour. He will also perform at multiple festivals throughout summer including stops at LakeShake in Chicago, IL on June 22 and Faster Horses in Brooklyn, MI on July 19.

Gavin DeGraw is a multi-platinum selling singer, performer and songwriter. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over 1 million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title-track, “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl,” which Billboard dubbed “a rocking home run,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” In addition, Gavin was nominated for his first Grammy for “We Both Know,” the song he co-wrote with Colbie Caillat for the 2013 film, “Safe Haven.” Since then he has been consistently touring around the world, including sold out dates with the legendary Billy Joel, and hit a milestone with the release of his first greatest hits compilation titled Finest Hour.

BRETT YOUNG
WITH SPECIAL GUEST MITCHELL TENPENNY

FRIDAY, AUGUST 17 AT 9 P.M.

Tickets on-sale Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m.

 

 ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young will perform at Mandalay Bay Beach in Las Vegas on Friday, August 17 as part of Mandalay Bay’s Concerts on the Beach 2018 summer lineup sponsored by Coors Light and Pepsi. Young will be joined by special guest Mitchell Tenpenny. Tickets go on sale this Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m.  

Named as the only country act on Billboard’s Top 10 New Artists, ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year Brett Young has captured the hearts of fans everywhere through his honest lyrics and West Coast-meets-Southern sound, aptly dubbed “Caliville” style. “Destined for mass appeal” (Rolling Stone Country), the 2018 ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year released his self-titled, GOLD-certified debut album on BMLG Records in February 2017. The album was recorded in Nashville with producer Dann Huff (Keith Urban, Thomas Rhett, Steven Tyler) and features 11 of the 12 tracks co-written by Brett, including his most recent No. 1 Platinum-certified single “Like I Loved You” and the No. 1 Platinum-certified debut “Sleep Without You.” The follow-up sophomore single, a Billboard and Mediabase No. 1 hit “In Case You Didn’t Know,” solidified Brett as the first country artist to hit the 3x Platinum-certification sales mark since 2014. Brett has proven himself to be one of Country music’s “most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean), not just with the success of his songs, but also with the success of his music videos. “In Case You Didn’t Know” has surpassed 175 million views alone, more than any debut country artist, and while his current single “Mercy” is steadily climbing the radio charts, the video for the song hit No. 1 in its second week on the Vevo Top Country chart. Having previously toured with superstars Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, and Lady Antebellum, the California native sold out every single stop on his debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR. This spring he is on the road with Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOUR 2018.

The Mandalay Bay Beach stage, which rises over the Four Diamond resort’s sand and surf wave pool, has hosted entertainment’s biggest names as part of the fan-favorite series. Concert-goers are invited to enjoy musical performances which perfectly complement the warm season as they sip on cocktails, sink their toes in the sand and wade in the water at Mandalay Bay’s 1.6-million-gallon wave pool. 

The Beachfront Experience at Mandalay Bay Beach’s Concerts on the Beach series is returning for the second year during select events. This premier experience grants guests access to an exclusive area on the Beach which includes lounge chair seating, cocktail service and premium viewing of the show. Guests also will receive expedited entry into the venue.

Tickets start at $42.50 (plus applicable service fees) and go on sale Friday, May 18 at 10 a.m. at MandalayBay.com or Ticketmaster.com.

Brett Young released his debut self-titled album (BMLG Records) at the start of 2017 (2/10), instantly making waves in Country music as fans and critics took notice of his “confessional, soulful” (Entertainment Weekly) music. “Destined for mass appeal” (Rolling Stone), the album quickly reached RIAA GOLD Certification – one of only three Country albums released this year to do so – and landed in Sounds Like Nashville’s 20 Best Country Albums of 2017 list.

The singer/songwriter has “taken Country radio by storm” (Billboard), with his PLATINUM-selling lead single “Sleep Without You” climbing to the top of the Country radio charts. Young’s follow-up single “In Case You Didn’t Know” saw overwhelming response as the first Country song released in 2017 to reach PLATINUM-certification status – one of only two Country songs released in 2017 to earn the honor – soon going 2X PLATINUM. The New York Times included the 2X PLATINUM track in their 54 Best Songs of 2017 list, calling it “one of this year’s most impressive pop songs.” It is also among Pandora listeners’ 50 favorite songs of 2017, and Sounds Like Nashville included it in their 25 Best Country Singles of 2017 list. The song’s official music video was greeted with matched enthusiasm, surpassing 160 million+ views since its January release, landing among Vevo’s top all-genre videos of 2017. His current GOLD-certified single “Like I Loved You” is Top-5-and-climbing on the charts, continuing to solidify Young as “one of country’s most reliable new hitmakers” (Tennessean).

As one of Country’s hottest artists, superstars took notice, and Young joined Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett and more on tour this year. In October, he launched his own debut headlining CALIVILLE TOUR, featuring chart-topper Carly Pierce, selling out every stop.

As 2017 comes to a close, Young has landed on multiple Billboard Year End charts, including Top New Artists, the only Country artist to do so. He also landed at No. Two on the Year End Hot Country Songs, Country Digital Songs and Country Streaming Songs charts. ASCAP recognized his “quintessential breakout year,” honoring Young for one of the Most Played Songs of the Year with “Sleep Without You.” Young was named a TicketMaster New Favorite Artist of 2017 and was Shazam’s only Country act included on their Emerging Artists of 2017 list. He also drew prestigious CMA, ACM, Teen Choice Award, CMT Music Awards and AIMP Award nominations.

2018 is already shaping up to be another big year for Young, who is working on new music. He will perform at the College Football Playoff concert in Atlanta January 8 before joining ACM Male Vocalist of the Year Thomas Rhett on his LIFE CHANGES Tour.

“THE WEEK VEGAS GOES COUNTRY®” 2017
INCLUDING 5TH ANNUAL ACM PARTY FOR A CAUSE® FESTIVITIES

 

SERIES OF INDUSTRY AND FAN EVENTS TO TAKE OVER LAS VEGAS
MARCH 30 – APRIL 2, 2017 SURROUNDING THE 52ND ACM AWARDS®

 

The Academy of Country Music announced today a return to the organization’s origins in developing The Week Vegas Goes Country® years ago, with an onslaught of events taking over Las Vegas – including a return and expansion of the 5th Annual ACM Party for a Cause® — in conjunction with the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards™, Country Music’s Party of the Year®, which will broadcast LIVE for the first time ever from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 8:00 PM ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.

 

This year, ACM Party for a Cause will consist of industry and fan events located at different venues across Las Vegas including a new host hotel, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and several others from Thursday, March 30 – Sunday, April 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, NV.

“Fourteen years ago, when the Academy moved the Awards to Las Vegas, we kicked off a decade of wide-ranging special events for fans including a motorcycle ride through Las Vegas and the surrounding area, a golf tournament at a prestigious club, concerts on Fremont Street, games and a country lifestyle marketplace and loads of live country music performances. That’s how The Week Vegas Goes Country® earned its moniker.  This year, we’re going back to our roots with the evolution of ACM Party for a Cause events taking place throughout Las Vegas, all benefiting ACM Lifting Lives and the good work of the many worthy organizations Lifting Lives supports through grants and more,” said Ed Warm, Chairman of ACM Lifting Lives and Co-Chairman of the ACM Events Committee. “It feels good to align all of our auxiliary events surrounding the ACM Awards with a philanthropic purpose the fans have always embraced.”

 

“ACM fans have demanded more events, more artist engagement, more variety,” said George Couri, Co-Chairman of the ACM Events Committee. “Some of our fans clearly like the more intimate environments compared to the big festivals, so this year we will give them that version celebrating more artists up close and in their faces. From songwriter rounds to fun party nights out, with this schedule there will be plenty for fans to dive into all day every day.”

Friday, October 28 – Trick Pony
·     Trick Pony became one of the most talked about new acts in country music in 2001 cranking out hits including their self-penned debut single and still ever catchy “Pour Me,” “On A Night Like This” and more. After a musical hiatus in December of 2006, Trick Pony reformed as a duo in 2014, where they have been steadily building a new full-length album bringing back an enhanced and current version of what put the group on the map in the first place.

Friday, November 4 – Montgomery Gentry
·     From “Hillbilly Shoes” to “Headlights,” Montgomery Gentry has become one of the most identifiable duos in country music history. After nearly a decade and a half, the duo have accumulated fourteen Top 10 singles, including five No. 1s, “Something To Be Proud Of,” “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All,” and “Roll With Me.”

Friday, November 11 – Jared Blake and Brodie Stewart
·     In 2011, Jared Blake found himself on a new adventure, appearing on what turned out to be a #1 rated show on NBC, The Voice. While on the show, Blake performed songs like “Not Ready To Make Nice” by the Dixie Chicks and “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon. All of his performances have appeared in the charts worldwide more than 56 times and reaching as high as #16 on the iTunes charts. Songwriter, producer and musician, Brodie Stewart has toured the country opening up for some of the biggest country artists in sold out arenas across the nation. Currently gearing up for a new album and tour with The Brodie Stewart Band, Stewart promises a “high octane show,” staying true to his southern rock roots.

brett-young
Saturday, November 12 – Brett Young
·     California native and former college baseball pitcher, Brett Young debuted his self-titled album “Brett Young” in February 2016, including lead single, “Sleep Without You.” Young’s soulful lyrics in songs like “Left Side of Leaving” and “You Ain’t Here to Kiss Me” proves Young can connect to his audience through personal experiences and vulnerability.

LEE BRICE, JUSTIN MOORE ANNOUNCE 2017
CO-HEADLINE ‘AMERICAN MADE’ TOUR

William Michael Morgan, Brett Young Round Out Lineup
as Direct Support

Lee Brice and Justin Moore, two of country music’s most dynamic performers, will ring in 2017 with their co-headlined “American Made” tour kicking off January 12 in Indianapolis at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. William Michael Morgan and Brett Young round out the tour as direct support. (Morgan and Young’s specific markets are noted in the tour schedule below.)

Moore released his fourth album ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ — his third #1 debut on the Country charts — in August. The lead single from the album, the Top-5 and-rising “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” lines up right alongside his chart-topping Platinum and Gold-certified hits “Small Town USA,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away,” “Point at You” and “Lettin’ The Night Roll.” This also follows two Gold-certified albums ‘Justin Moore’ and ‘Outlaws Like Me.’ He debuted music from his new album last month with a live performance during the Fox & Friends’ All-American Summer Concert Series.

Lee Brice is a multiple ACM and CMA award winner with a GRAMMY nomination, six RIAA platinum singles – and more than 10 Million singles sold —under his belt. The “melodically eloquent” (New York Times) power vocalist, songwriter and producer has celebrated five #1s including “I Drive Your Truck” and “Drinking Class” and was most recently honored by the RIAA during a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden for the platinum certification of his #1 radio single, “I Don’t Dance.” He quickly followed that career milestone with performances on NBC’s “The Voice,” “Today” and ABC’s “The Bachelor Live.”

“It’s very exciting to get back out there as a headliner,” Justin says. “To be able to do it with my buddy Lee is even more exciting. I’ve been a fan of his for a long time. It’s gonna definitely be a party every night. I hope the fans are as jacked up about it as we are.”

“When we put this tour together we thought about the fans first,” says Lee who kicked off 2016 with his own headlining “Life Off My Years” tour after being the only country artist in 2015 to perform in all 50 states. “I love playing live but what’s even more fun is interacting with the amazing people in the audience. That’s what it’s all about. I can’t wait to get out there to play the songs everyone already knows but we’re also planning to give these audiences a sneak peek into a few songs off the new record!”

About Justin Moore:
Justin Moore’s long-awaited fourth studio ‘Kinda Don’t Care’ was released in August and earned the singer his third consecutive #1 album debut. It features his current Top 5-and-rising single “You Look Like I Need a Drink.” The project is chock-full of new music with 16 tracks on the deluxe version which shot to #1 on the iTunes Country and Billboard Country Albums charts upon release. The Arkansas native spent three years putting the project together, which serves as a follow up to his second #1 album release, Off The Beaten Path.

Moore holds five #1 singles under his signature white cowboy hat including “Point At You,” “Lettin’ The Night Roll” and the Platinum-certified “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” He has seven Top 10 hits and sold almost 8 million tracks to date.

The Valory Music Co. recording artist has earned multiple ACM, ACA and ACC Awards nominations including being named the 2014 ACM New Artist of the Year. USA Today has exclaimed, “he has come to represent the best of a new generation in country music.”

This is Moore’s third headlining tour having sold out dates across the country previously for his Outlaws Like Me and Off The Beaten Path tour stops. Describing his electrifying live show, Billboard said “Fans literally started screaming for the Arkansas native from the beginning notes of “Till My Last Day” and continued all the way through his hit-filled set…”

He has shared the stage with Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Hank Williams Jr, Blake Shelton, Eric Church and is currently on the road with Brantley Gilbert once again for the Take It Outside tour.

About Lee Brice:
With his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance,’ (9.14) Lee has scored two Billboard Country #1 smashes. “I Don’t Dance” and “Drinking Class,” with “That Don’t Sound Like You” earning a Top 10 chart position.

As “one of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer” (USA Today), Lee has written songs for artists including Garth Brooks’ “More Than a Memory,” Tim McGraw’s “Still,” the Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl.”

Lee Brice released his debut album, ‘Love Like Crazy,’ in 2009. The title track reached #3 on the Billboard Country chart and set a record as the longest-charting song in that chart’s history. In 2012, he topped his own success with ‘Hard 2 Love,’ an album that went Gold and featured three #1 Country singles, including “I Drive Your Truck,” which won Song of the Year at both the CMA and ACM Awards. The record earned raves everywhere from NPR to Country Weekly and found the New York Times hailing him as “a sensitive macho man,” a compliment that perfectly encapsulates both sides of Brice’s persona. ‘Hard 2 Love’ also garnered Lee his late-night debut with a stirring performance of “I Drive Your Truck” on NBC’s “The Tonight Show.”

Brice took it a step further on his latest album, ‘I Don’t Dance’ (9.14), relishing the role of producer with a flair for experimentation, resulting in the album’s title track hitting #1 at radio the week the album came out. Lee can currently be heard alongside long-time friend and label-mate, Jerrod Niemann, on Jerrod’s latest single, “A Little More Love.” Lee will continue to tour through the fall while also writing and recording his fourth studio album slated for release in 2017 on Curb Records.

Coyote CountryFest returns to the Orleans Arena Aug. 13 
Lineup features Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Love and Theft and more

The annual country all-star concert Coyote CountryFest (presented by 102.7 The Coyote) returns to Orleans Arena on Saturday, Aug. 13, with performances from Cole Swindell, Jon Pardi, Love and Theft, Brett Young and Sierra Black.

Georgia native Cole Swindell’s rise to fame began as a songwriter for country music stars Luke Bryan, Chris Young and Florida Georgia Line, among others. His songwriting success opened doors for him to pursue a career as performing artist himself, and in 2013, he released his debut single “Chillin’ It.” In February 2014, Swindell released a self-titled album, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 and produced two more Top 10 country singles: “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.” In 2015, he released an EP featuring the song “You Should Be Here,” which reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country chart. In May 2016, Swindell released his second full-length album titled “You Should Be Here.”

Jon Pardi is best known for his high-energy performances and “rowdy” approach to country music. He hit the scene with his debut single “Missin’ You Crazy” in 2012. A year later, his second single “Up All Night” became his first Top 10 hit. He found additional success on the charts with songs like “Head Over Boots,” “When I’ve Been Drinkin’” and “Up All Night.”

Since hitting the country music scene in 2009 with their debut album, country duo Love and Theft has produced several top 10 hits and released three albums. Best known for their #1 single “Angel Eyes,” the group has also earned nominations and accolades for their singles “Runnin’ Out of Air,” “Runaway,” “Whiskey on My Breath” and more.

Country music up-and-comer Brett Young released his debut EP earlier this year, with the single “Sleep Without You” cracking the US Country Charts. Young was recently named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know.”

Las Vegas native Sierra Black hit the country music scene as an opening act for country greats like Joe Nichols, Little Big Town and more. Last year, she had the honor of performing a duet with Keith Urban, who hand-picked her for a performance of “We Were Us.” She is currently working on her debut EP and released her first single, “Heart on Ice,” earlier this year.

Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are available from $20 plus tax and fees, and can be purchased by calling the Orleans Arena Box Office at 702.284.7777 or by visiting www.orleansarena.com.
