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.

Few pop singers can claim a popularity as enduring as Tony Bennett’s. His warm tenor is famous for its simplicity and emotional directness, as evidenced in his renditions of such hits as “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” “Rags to Riches” and “What a Good Life.”  Bennett began his career performing in various New York clubs before being discovered in 1949 by Bob Hope. During the ’50s, he recorded such songs as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches” and “Cold, Cold Heart.”  In 1962, Bennett recorded his best known song “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” and won the first of 17 Grammys.  Throughout his career, Bennett has reached out to new generations of fans by crossing over into different spheres of pop culture. He appeared on television shows, such as “The Simpsons” and the MTV Music Video Awards (alongside The Red Hot Chili Peppers). His career experienced a resurgence in the ’80s and ’90s thanks to a series of projects with singers including k.d. lang, Stevie Wonder, Natalie Cole and Billy Joel.  Bennett has won 17 Grammy Awards (including a Lifetime Achievement Award, presented in 2001) and two Emmy Awards, and has been named an NEA Jazz Master and a Kennedy Center Honoree. He has sold over 50 million records worldwide.  Now in his 80s, Bennett continues to tour the world for concerts and other engagements.

http://www.lauryn-hill.com/
Singer, songwriter, actress. Born in South Orange, New Jersey on May 25, 1975. In 1998, Lauryn Hill released her solo debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and became the first woman or hip-hop artist to win five Grammy Awards when she received Album of the Year, Best New Artist, Best Female R&B Performance, Best R&B Song (“Doo Wop (That Thing)”) and Best R&B Album honors.

A natural performer, Hill sang at Harlem’s Apollo Theater at age thirteen. Soon after, she met Prakazrel “Pras” Michel and his cousin, Wyclef Jean, and the three formed a band (which was at first called Tranzlator Crew, but later became the Fugees) and began performing in area clubs. While just a high school sophomore, Hill landed a recurring role on the television soap opera As the World Turns and soon after starred in Whoopi Goldberg’s Sister Act II: Back in the Habit. In 1993, instead of heading for Hollywood, Hill enrolled at Columbia University where she studied for a year before going on leave to pursue her career. That same year, the Fugees released their first album, Blunted on Reality, which met mixed reviews. In 1996, the group released a successful second album, The Score, which sold 17 million copes, making the Fugees the largest-selling rap group of all time and winning them two Grammy Awards (Best Rap Album and Best R&B Performance by a duo or group).

Hill’s first solo effort, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (1998), established her as a major talent in her own right. The album sold over 12 million copies and earned Hill five Grammy Awards, three American Music Awards, a Billboard Award, a Soul Train Award and an MTV Music Award.

After an extended hiatus, Hill returned in 2002 with MTV Unplugged No. 2.0. The album was generated from Hill’s two-hour acoustic performance on MTV’s popular series MTV Unplugged. In October, 2005, Hill performed two songs at the Take Back TV concert launching Al Gore’s CurrentTV.

Hill is also a dedicated activist. She is the founder of the Refugee Camp Youth Project, which raises money to send inner-city children in her native New Jersey to summer camp.

American rock duo Steely Dan to perform at the Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort on Thursday, October 13, 2011, at 9 p.m. as part of the Shuffle Diplomacy tour.

Steely Dan’s popularity peaked in the late 1970’s with core members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. They have continued their success with the release of seven albums, including the Grammy Award-winning, Two Against Nature, by blending jazz, rock, pop, funk and R&B paired with the duos sarcasm and puzzling lyrics.

In 1975 they became a purely studio-based act releasing a series of successful singles and albums. Well-known for their perfectionism in the recording studio, it took more than a year to record the tracks that resulted in 1980’s Gaucho. During the summer of 1981, Becker and Fagen announced that they were parting ways. The following year, Fagen released his solo debut, The Nightfly, which became a commercial hit. He did not record another album until 1993, when he reunited with Becker, who produced Kamakiriad. During their time apart they maintained a cult like fan base and in 1993 the group resumed playing live concerts.

Steely Dan mounted another reunion tour in 1994 and in early 2000 the duo issued Two Against Nature, their first new studio album in two decades, which landed them a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. They have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2001 and Everything Must Go followed in 2003. Fagen’s solo album, Morph the Cat, was released in 2006 and Becker released Circus Money in 2008.

This event is produced by Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and show time is 9 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open Sunday from noon – 7:00 p.m., Monday from noon – 10:30 p.m., Tuesday and Wednesday from noon – 7:00 p.m., Thursday, Friday and Saturday from noon – 10 p.m..
