Fogerty marked his return to Las Vegas by paying homage to military veterans. To kick off his shows, he invited Six-String Soldiers, a four-member ensemble of The United States Army Field Band, to open and perform alongside him. The quartet will also join the Friday, September 16 performance of “John Fogerty – Fortunate Son in Concert” to commemorate National POW/MIA Recognition Day, which honors those who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action.
“Six-String Soldiers perform regularly at veterans’ association gatherings and provide a positive outlook,” said Fogerty. “I am honored and excited to have Six-String Soldiers opening my show, ‘Fortunate Son’ at The Venetian Las Vegas.”
On Thursday, September 15, Fogerty, along with Six-String Soldiers, visited the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System in North Las Vegas, where they met with and performed for the hospital’s resident veterans. In addition to delivering his signature songs, he and the group also performed an emotional rendition of “God Bless America.” Fogerty, who was drafted and served in Vietnam, was presented a scroll of the poem “To the Vietnam Veteran.”
“Having served in the military myself, I feel it is important that we bring awareness to ensure that we take care of the condition of our veterans,” said Fogerty. “It is a cause that is very dear to my heart.”
With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fogerty is hailed as one of the most influential musicians in rock history. Fogerty wrote, sang and produced numerous classic hits including “Born on the Bayou,” “Green River,” “Proud Mary,” and “Bad Moon Rising,” which led him to be named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists (No. 40), 100 Greatest Songwriters (No. 40) and 100 Greatest Singers (No. 72) by Rolling Stone Magazine. Earning induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, he now adds author to his long list of accomplishments with his memoir “Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music” released last fall. The autobiographical account takes readers through the highs and lows of Fogerty’s life and musical career as a member of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a solo artist.

Faith Hill has established herself as one of the music industry’s top vocalists, with a voice that is as powerful as it is recognizable.  Her career has been highlighted by the sale of over 30 million records worldwide, during which time she has celebrated thirteen #1 singles and twenty #1 videos.  Faith has won fifteen Academy Of Country Music awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year in 1998, 1999 and 2000, Single Record of the Year for “This Kiss” in 1998, and the ACM Career Achievement Award in 2006, among many others.

 

Since releasing their multi-week #1, DOUBLE PLATINUM debut single, “Cruise,” breakout duo Florida Georgia Line (Tyler Hubbard from Monroe, Georgia and Brian Kelley from Ormond Beach, Florida) has been quickly garnering buzz among fans, media and several Superstars across genres, including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, and GRAMMY-winning Hip Hop artist Nelly, with who they have teamed up on a “Cruise” remix. FGL’s GOLD-certified “Get Your Shine On” is Top 10-and-rising at Country radio. Their energetic live show and compelling tunes landed them coveted opening slots on Taylor Swift’s “THE RED TOUR” and Luke Bryan’s “DIRT ROAD DIARIES TOUR” this year. The Republic Nashville duo brings a fresh combination of eclectic beats and expressive lyrics to the genre. Producer Joey Moi showcases their unique sound throughout their GOLD-certified debut album, HERE’S TO THE GOOD TIMES, which earned the highest debut album sales of 2012 for a new Country artist. They have appeared on LIVE with Kelly & Michael, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, FOX & Friends and secured a presenter spot during the 2012 American Music Awards.

 

Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum superstar, entrepreneur, actor, and philanthropist NELLY is on top of the world once more. He’s gearing up to release his long-awaited seventh full-length studio album, M.O., later this year. Already, the hit single “Hey Porsche” has laid the groundwork for another smash from the artist.  Upon the song’s debut, it moved over 100,000 digital singles in less than week. “Hey Porsche” also marks NELLY’s 22nd charted Top 40 song, which makes him the 11th most-charted Top 40 hits artist of all-time. Internationally, the song has reached gold status in the UK already, hitting #4 on iTunes and entering heavy rotation on BBC Radio 1. Meanwhile, down under in Australia, it’s been certified platinum. Other chart positions include #8 on iTunes in Ireland, and it’s climbing in Belgium, Germany, and beyond. However, “Hey Porsche” isn’t the only anthem on M.O.  Nelly also teamed up with production powerhouses such as Pharrell (Jay Z, Snoop, Justin Timberlake), Rico Love (Beyonce, Usher), DJ Frank E (Kanye West, Enrique Iglesias, FloRida), Detail (Lil Wayne, T-Pain), Da Internz (Rihanna, Nas), and Bei-Major. Nelly also invited some of his closest friends and today’s hottest artists to collaborate including Trey Songz, T.I., Akon, Pitbull, and Florida Georgia Line. M.O. is shaping up to be one of the hottest hip-hop events of 2013.

 

The Band Perry returns to the ACM Awards this year with their third Vocal Group of the Year nomination, just two short years after they were honored with the New Artist of the Year award in 2011. The sibling trio’s sophomore album Pioneer will be released on April 2, 2013 and has already spawned the smash, RIAA Certified Platinum single, “Better Dig Two,” which quickly became the # 1 Billboard Hot Country Song, making it the fastest-rising song of the band’s career.  It is their third chart-topping single landing at #1 on the Country Radio Charts for two consecutive weeks.  The Band Perry is currently on Rascal Flatts’ “Changed Tour.”

About Tim McGraw
For 20 years, McGraw has been providing that kind of powerful connection with his audience. With Two Lanes of Freedom, his new album—and first release for Big Machine Records—the singer is covering his broadest emotional range yet, with a set of songs that looks forward and back, gets deep and gets loose, and reveals that even the biggest stars can continue to grow with consistency and maturity.

In his record-shattering career, McGraw has sold more than 40 million albums, and dominated the charts with 33 No. 1 singles. Since the release of his debut album in 1993, he has won three GRAMMYs, 15 Academy of Country Music Awards, 12 Country Music Association Awards, and 10 American Music Awards, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as “The Blind Side,” “Country Strong,” and “Friday Night Lights”—as well as hosting Saturday Night Live, a rare honor for a singer in any genre. McGraw has never been afraid of breaking new ground; over the years, he has collaborated with musicians from Nelly to Tony Bennett to Def Leppard and Ne-Yo.
