Golden Nugget Las Vegas Welcomes Southern Rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special to its National Finals Rodeo Entertainment Lineup
Lynyrd Skynyrd
 Golden Nugget Las Vegas, the city’s premiere destination for National Finals Rodeo entertainment, will welcome to the stage Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special at The Grand Event Center.

The two groups, both founded in Jacksonville, Florida, were at the forefront of the Southern Rock sound that roared out of the city in the 1970s. Lynyrd Skynyrd’s knack for songwriting, from ballad’s like “Tuesday’s Gone” and “Free Bird,” to rollicking hits “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Gimme Three Steps,” combined with a bluesy delivery, made them the definitive artists of the genre.
.38 Special’s breakout hit “Hold On Loosely” appeared on their popular album “Wild-Eyed Southern Boys” (1981) and has since been featured on television, in film, and on several compilation albums. With sales in excess of 20 million, .38 Special’s fan-favorite hits include “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Chain Lightnin’,” “Second Chance,” and more.

  • Tanya Tucker │ December 4
  • Brenda Lee | December 5

Tickets go on sale Friday, September 16 at 10 a.m.

 

With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. While becoming a force on the country music scene, he has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way.

 

Allan just re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, the label home for the entirety of his twenty-year career. “Do You Wish It Was Me?,” the debut single from his upcoming EMI Nashville release, hit radio this June. The single was co-written by Allan, Jonathan Singleton and Andrew Dorff and co-produced by Allan and Greg Droman.

 

His last album, Set You Free, topped the Billboard 200 Pop Chart, a career first for Allan.  The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart for the fourth time in a row and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with “Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain.”  The California native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale, in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 7 million copies, has been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and has been certified gold five times.  Allan has five #1 hits at country radio, fourteen Top 10 hits to his credit and has amassed over 270 million total streams.  He’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and deemed a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.  He sells out venues as a headliner from NY to LA, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar and People magazine.
