JUST ANNOUNCED: Jamey Johnson at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas

STAGECOACH SPOTLIGHT TOUR:
JAMEY JOHNSON
With MARGO PRICE and BRENT COBB

 Friday, April 28

Tickets on sale Friday, Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. PST

 

 

Alabama native and acclaimed singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson will take the stage at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas in The Linq Promenade on Friday, April 28 at 8:30 p.m. The Nashville-based country superstar makes a Stagecoach Spotlight stop before heading to California to play night two of Stagecoach, California’s Country Music Festival.

 

Johnson funded his early music career by running his own construction company and performing in Nashville nightspots, landing his first recording contract in 2005. Following a well documented period of darkness after losing his record deal and going through a difficult divorce, Johnson found solace in the creative process and, particularly, life on the road.

 

“The road is where it’s at. I love it,” notes Johnson on his website. “That’s where you take country music. You don’t get the message out there by sitting at the house. I go out there and meet the people. When I come back home to make an album, I don’t want you to second-guess me. I’m telling you what is the right thing, because I’m the guy out there shaking their hands every night.”

 

Johnson’s emotions and understanding of the struggles faced by all drive his music to both ends of the spectrum. From “By the Seat of Your Pants” to “That’s How I Don’t Love You,” Johnson’s lyrics take listeners on a familiar journey sure to resonate with everyone in his audience.

 

Johnson has shared the stage with country legends like Hank Williams Jr. and Willie Nelson and has been one of the few country acts invited to play some of the largest pop music festivals in America. He recently performed along with Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Rodney Atkins, Montgomery Gentry, Ricky Skaggs and others at the tribute to the life and career of Country Music Hall of Famer Randy Travis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Supporting act Margo Price grew up in Aledo, IL. Through a voice reminiscent of Loretta Lynn mixed with the soul of Janis Joplin, Price uses her album “Midwest Farmer’s Daughter” to recant stories of hardship and loss with a tone of elegance and a new understanding. Fans can expect high-energy honesty in the intimate Brooklyn Bowl setting.

 

Opener Brent Cobb’s album “Shine on Rainy Day” was produced by cousin David Cobb and, similar to Price, is reminiscent of his upbringing in Ellaville, GA. “It just is Georgia,” notes Cobb. “It’s just that rural, easy-going way it feels down there on a nice spring evening when the wind’s blowing warm and you smell wisteria, you know?”

 

Doors for Jamey Johnson with Margo Price and Brent Cobb at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas open at 7:30 p.m. This show is for ages 18+. Venue presale tickets are available starting at $35 on Thursday, Feb. 16 at 10 a.m. PT using password “ALABAMA.” General admission tickets start at $45 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public on Friday, Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. PST at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2lczVQy.

Montgomery Gentry
Montgomery Gentry is an American country music duo composed of vocalists Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry, both natives of Kentucky. The duo is known for its Southern rock influences and has collaborated with Charlie Daniels, Toby Keith and members of The Allman Brothers Band. Montgomery Gentry releases six studio albums: Tattoos & Scars, Carrying On, My Town, You Do Your Thing, Some People Change and Back When I Knew It All. They have 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.” In 2009 they were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.

Tracy Lawrence
Tracy Lawrence is one of the most recognizable voices in Country music with songs such as “Paint Me A Birmingham,” “Time Marches On,” “Alibis,” and “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” The entertainer has enjoyed twenty-two songs on the Billboard top ten charts with eighteen number one singles, selling over thirteen million albums. The Multi-platinum CMA and ACM award winning recording artist has helped shape the sound of Country music for two decades, recently celebrating twenty-years in music. Few country artists have ever known the kind of success that Tracy Lawrence has earned and the influence his iconic voice has contributed to the country music genre.

Chris Janson
Chris Janson has never doubted who he is. He’s a devoted husband, a passionate father, a hit songwriter, a wildly entertaining performer and, now, a Number One country artist. All those elements influence Buy Me a Boat, his debut solo album for Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville. Radio stations jumped on the inspirational “Buy Me a Boat” single. Janson landed a tour with Toby Keith and Warner Music Nashville signed him to a record deal. Now, “Buy Me a Boat” is a Number One single, having topped the country charts in September.

Chase Bryant
Music defines Chris Bryant. At every level and in often unexpected ways, his truths are expressed in melody, lyrics, hooks and sounds. Bryant signed with RED BOW Records in August 2013 and released his debut single “Take It On Back,” in 2014. The single charted in the Top 20 of Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay. Bryant began touring with Brantley Gilbert in early 2015 and was one of the opening acts on Tim McGraw’s 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour.

JT Hodges
JT Hodges broke through with his self-titled debut in 2012, and will be releasing yet to be titled sophomore release in the near future. The lead single, “Already High,” is setting the stage for a new album’s worth of music from Hodges that will reflect his growth musically, stylistically and as a storyteller. Besides “Already High,” Hodges and his label, Show Dog Universal Music, released a second new song, “Lay It Down,” exclusively to Sirius satellite radio. According to Hodges, he wants to get as much new music out to the fans as possible prior to the release of a new CD.

Jackson Michelson
