COTTON EYED JOE CELEBRATES 25th ANNIVERSARY — NAMED THE ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC 2018 “NIGHTCLUB OF THE YEAR”

New Owner Brings Famed Nightclub New Dance Floor, Lighting, Pool Tables, Concerts and more!

For over 25 years, the Cotton Eyed Joe has served as the hottest night club in all of East Tennessee. In fact, this year, it won the ACM (Academy of Country Music) Industry Award for Nightclub of the Year! The ‘Joe’ is already awesome, but it’s about to get a whole lot better! From complete renovations to new offerings, such as valet parking, the “Joe” will have a totally updated atmosphere, perfect for concerts. All of these changes are made possible thanks to the “Joe’s” new owner, Chuck Ward. He’s been in the real estate business for 30 years, and he’s already begun to give the club a much-needed face-lift.

Each week, more than 3,000 people occupy the “Joe’s” 25,000 square foot building, and dance on the 2,500 sq ft dance floor.

One of the coolest features about the “Joe” is how it’s decorated. For example, the DJ booth is an actual semi-truck! The rest of the building is filled with signed photos, western gear, and much more.

The National Anthem is played EVERY NIGHT, followed by the club’s theme song, “Cotton Eyed Joe”.

Nashville Unplugged Returns to Mizuya Lounge at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino

Nashville Unplugged Returns to Mizuya Lounge at
Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino


Nashville Unplugged is once again bringing country music fans “the story behind the song” as the longest-running songwriter series outside of Nashville returns to Mizuya Lounge at Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song . Shows take place Friday evenings from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.


Each week Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song brings the southern charm of Nashville to Las Vegas. The complimentary show gives songwriters of some of the biggest country music hits the chance to showcase their music and provide the stories behind their famous lyrics. The intimate, all-acoustic show offers an interactive experience that allows songwriters and the audience to connect through music. With different entertainers on the roster each week, guests have the unique opportunity to see an original show every Friday night.


Nashville Unplugged has become the place to go in Las Vegas for an impromptu, country music performance. Over the last nine years the acoustic series has included performances from the writers of Garth Brooks’ “More than a Memory,” Gary Allan’s “Nothing on But the Radio” and Carrie Underwood’s “Something in the Water.”

Upcoming performances include:

 


Tyler Hilton and Courtney Cole:  Friday, Oct. 27

 

  • Born and raised in Palm Springs, Calif., Tyler Hilton made the move to Los Angeles to pursue a career in music. He released his first album The Tracks of Tyler Hilton in 2004, the same year he landed a recurring role on The CW’s “One Tree Hill.” He recently released his new single “Overtime” and is embarking on an Australian tour with Kate Voegele in December.
  • The world got its first look at Courtney Cole in 2011 on “CMT: The Next Superstar.” After the last episode aired, she was offered a full-time publishing deal. As she has pursued songwriting, Cole has opened for Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Chris Young, Kip Moore, Old Dominion, Granger Smith, Kane Brown, Thompson Square and more at venues across the country. In 2015, Cole released her self-titled EP and was singled out as a Spotify Spotlight Artist while The Huffington Post named her one of its “Country Artists to Watch in 2015.”
 
Wynn Varble:  Friday, Nov. 3

 

  • Wynn Varble landed his first No. 1 song, “Have You Forgotten” with Darryl Worley, in 2003. The song was nominated for “Song of the Year” by the Country Music Association (CMA). Varble has had two additional songs earn “Song of the Year” nominations by the CMA: “Waitin on a Woman” and “I’m a Little More Country Than That.” Varble’s songs have been recorded by artists such as Garth Brooks, Lee Ann Womack, Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler, Montgomery Gentry, Gary Allan and Trace Adkins.

 


Danny Myrick and Tim James:  Friday, Nov. 10

 

  • Myrick achieved his first No. 1 gospel song as a writer at age 17 before moving to Nashville and spending the ‘90s singing lead in country rock band, Western Flyer. After Western Flyer disbanded, Myrick’s vocal talent led to singing hundreds of songwriter demos as well as adding background vocals to numerous albums by the likes of Blake Shelton, Montgomery Gentry and Keith Anderson before focusing on his passion for writing songs. He has penned hits such as “Truck Yeah” by Tim McGraw and “I Love This Life” by LoCash.
  • Tennessee native Tim James has had an affinity for writing since childhood. He has two No. 1 hits under his belt including Toby Keith’s “My List” and Lee Brice’s “Love Like Crazy.” He also wrote “All I Ask For Anymore” by Trace Adkins, which was nominated for Best Country Song at the 2010 GRAMMY Awards.


Matt Warren:  Friday, Nov. 24

  • Being a Nashville-native makes Matt Warren a rarity in Music City. His first cut as a writer was “Puttin’ Memories Away,” co-written with and performed by Gary Allan. This was be the first of Warren’s 15 songs recorded by Allan, including No. 1 hit “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” which was nominated for “Song of the Year” at the 2014 Academy of Country Music Awards. Warren is the recipient of two ASCAP Awards for Most Spins in a Year (2009 and 2013).

Old Dominion
Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion lend old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets. Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut.” Old Dominion released their platinum two-week No.1“Break Up With Him” and RIAA certified gold hit “Snapback” prior to their third single “Song For Another Time,” which is climbing the charts now. They spent their summer on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour and will headline their Meat and Candy Fall Tour, beginning Sept. 22, with 15 of the dates tapped as Stagecoach Spotlight: Old Dominion Meat and Candy Tour; the first-ever tour produced by the award-winning Stagecoach Music Festival. The ACM and ACCA Breakthrough Duo/Group of the Year are also nominated for two CMA Awards: Best New Artist and Vocal Group of the Year. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.

sawyer-brown

Sawyer Brown
With more than three decades of creating 50+ chart singles including country smash hits like “Some Girls Do,” “Step That Step,” “Thank God For You,” and their most recent single “We Got the Night,” Sawyer Brown is always on the move – on the road, on stage, and in their career. Having been described as “the Rolling Stones of Country Music,” Sawyer Brown bounds onto the stage night after night, delivering its own unique brand of high-energy entertainment, and the band remains a perennial favorite at fairs, festivals, theatres, and casinos. After twenty-three albums, 50+ chart singles, CMA, ACM, and CMT awards on the shelf, more than 4,500 shows and counting, and more than a million miles behind them, Sawyer Brown is still seeing the highway miles click by outside their bus window.

 

Craig Campbell

Craig Campbell
Craig Campbell has never taken a backseat to anything. He’s certainly never taken a backseat in his career as one of country’s brightest rising stars who launched onto the country music scene in 2011 and continues to exist in a perfect sweet spot between tradition and modernity. There have been bumps along the way for the Georgia-born artist, on his path from the small town of Lyons to Nashville’s Music Row. But through hits like “Keep Them Kisses Comin’,” “Fish” and “Family Man,” plus countless shows, he’s kept his eyes on his mission – to bring his fans true country music with a spin all his own, through timeless songs that tell his life story. And with his forthcoming debut project on RED BOW Records – flag-shipped by the earnest “Outskirts of Heaven,” which was co-written by Campbell – he is ready to share the next chapter: where that timelessness meets the here and now.

aaron-watson

Aaron Watson
With the release of The Underdog in February 2015, Aaron Watson made country music history by becoming the first-ever independent artist to debut an album at #1 on Billboard Country Chart. This achievement was highlighted by the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016 with an installation commemorating this milestone showcasing some of Aaron’s artifacts throughout his career that brought him to this place. Press continues to praise his music as well…”a proud country traditionalist” – Rolling Stone, “one of the few real cowboys left in country music” -iTunes, “puts the bite back into traditional country music” -Rolling Stone are a few of the rave reviews his brand of country music has received. In a world where country music at times seems to have lost its identity and roots, Aaron remains firmly committed to staying true to his music and the brand; the epitome of representing Texas, cowboy hats, buckles, and fiddles that have served country music and country music lovers for generations while always staying focused on the core values that have brought his unprecedented success to this point….faith, family, and fans.

high-valley

High Valley
High Valley’s major label debut single “Make You Mine” (Atlantic / Warner Music Nashville) is an exercise in balance and purity of expression. By combining their bluegrass roots with a modern pulse, brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel have created something that feels simultaneously fresh and timeless.

 

Beginning with a burst of turbocharged acoustic guitar, the tune builds momentum with a four- on-the-floor kick drum and rousing group choruses that beg to be shouted at full-volume. This energetic attack is mirrored by the determination and confidence in the lyrics, aimed at winning over a “soul miner’s daughter.” Also remarkable is how “Make You Mine” refuses to be overwhelmed by electric instrumentation, staying close to its acoustic core. That was a very conscious decision, according to mandolin player/harmony vocalist Curtis. “Even getting some buddies in the studio and just shouting out lyrics, bringing energy in that way instead of always defaulting to crunchy guitars and things like that,” says Curtis. “That’s what we’re all about.”

 

Earlier this year, Brad and Curtis played the song at the Grand Ole Opry and were fortunate to be accompanied in the hallowed circle by one of their biggest influences, Ricky Skaggs. Though Skaggs’ early ’80s heyday pre-dates either brother, they’ve been longtime fans since discovering him on the lone AM radio station they could receive growing up.

 

While their upbringing didn’t exactly acquaint them with the Billboard 100, it’s that insulation that helped cement their musical ideals and love of simple, classic country, allowing High Valley’s music to feel simultaneously fresh and timeless. Dear Life, their major label debut releasing November 18 on Atlantic/Warner Music Nashville, is an album that fuses tradition with wide-eyed musical exploration, stays true to their family-first value system and celebrates resilient positivity.

 

High Valley learned to become skilled digital citizens, building an avid fan base that is actively involved in selecting the duo’s songs through the High Valley app and connecting with each other via social media. As a result, they have amassed more than 10 million song streams worldwide – including 5.75 million for lead single “Make You Mine,” which also represents the duo’s first Top 30 and climbing radio hit.
 

jackson-michelson

Jackson Michelson
Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson kicked off his country career on the West Coast, carving out a sound that blended the rootsy twang of the American South with the sunny, feel-good spirit of the Pacific Coast. Nashville — the official capital of country music — lay 2,300 miles to the southeast, but Michelson focused on his home turf first, building an audience of West Coast fans who were drawn to his high-energy shows and relatable songwriting. By the time he did move to Nashville, he’d already spent years on the road, growing his fan base show-by-show and earning a record contract with Curb Records in the process. Songs like “The Good Life,” which has since become a popular track on SiriusXM radio, helped spread Michelson’s music to new fans across the country. Now, with a record deal under his belt, Michelson is prepping for the next phase of his career.

Old Dominion
Proving that they are not your average country band, Old Dominion lend old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n’ roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets. Old Dominion has emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a “deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut.” Old Dominion released their platinum two-week No.1“Break Up With Him” and RIAA certified gold hit “Snapback” prior to their third single “Song For Another Time,” which is climbing the charts now. They spent their summer on Kenny Chesney’s Spread The Love Tour and will headline their Meat and Candy Fall Tour, beginning Sept. 22, with 15 of the dates tapped as Stagecoach Spotlight: Old Dominion Meat and Candy Tour; the first-ever tour produced by the award-winning Stagecoach Music Festival. The ACM and ACCA Breakthrough Duo/Group of the Year are also nominated for two CMA Awards: Best New Artist and Vocal Group of the Year. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Sellers.

Sawyer Brown
With more than three decades of creating 50+ chart singles including country smash hits like “Some Girls Do,” “Step That Step,” “Thank God For You,” and their most recent single “We Got the Night,” Sawyer Brown is always on the move – on the road, on stage, and in their career. Having been described as “the Rolling Stones of Country Music,” Sawyer Brown bounds onto the stage night after night, delivering its own unique brand of high-energy entertainment, and the band remains a perennial favorite at fairs, festivals, theatres, and casinos. After twenty-three albums, 50+ chart singles, CMA, ACM, and CMT awards on the shelf, more than 4,500 shows and counting, and more than a million miles behind them, Sawyer Brown is still seeing the highway miles click by outside their bus window.

All concerts are free and open to the public and parking is available at the Fremont Street Experience parking garage located on 4th Street just north of Carson Avenue.
