Seven-time GRAMMY award-winning trio Lady Antebellum will roll into North Platte at the US Cellular Summer Jam Concert Series at the NEBRASKAland DAYS Wild West Arena on June 27th.The group, which was scheduled to perform for NLD 2013 prior to Hillary Scott’s pregnancy, made good on their promise to play the date this year.
We’re really pleased to see Lady A come back to North Platte.
Newcomer David Nail will open for Grammy Winner’s Lady Antebellum.
Since his debut in 2009, David Nail has made a career of singing songs that few artists dare touch in contemporary country music: sad songs. He has had hits with singles about cheating (“Let It Rain”), breakups (“Red Light”) and failed dreams (“Turning Home”) and he has owned every one, singing as if from personal experience. David’s ability to make such tales of heartbreak and loss his own is what defines him as an artist—one capable of finding and recording songs that are deeply relatable to him and to listeners. And his cathartic new album continues that trend, albeit with a series of decidedly upbeat songs that reflects David’s own happiness.
Rounding out the Concert Series on June 28th will be Billy Currington, who scored his seventh number one single “Hey Girl”, the first release off his fifth studio album. He’s garnered an impressive ten Top 10 hits, with six of those hitting No. 1 – “Pretty Good At Drinkin’ Beer,” “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” “People Are Crazy,” ”Don’t,” “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” and “Good Directions.” He’s sold millions of albums and has been selected to tour with the likes of Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley and Sugarland. Tour mate Carrie Underwood notes that Billy’s “talent and charm” have made crowds fall in love with him. He also received the compliment of a lifetime from David Letterman, who said about Billy’s “People Are Crazy” performance, “This song will change your life. You’re not going to do any better than this song here.”
Joining Currington is one of the hottest new acts of 2013, Tyler Farr
Farr was born and raised in the small town of Garden City, Missouri. The singer was first introduced to country music at age16, when he spent a summer on the road with his stepfather, who played lead guitar for country icon George Jones. Farr grew to love country music, and he decided to make the move to Nashville to pursue a career as an artist.
He landed a job working as a bouncer at the legendary Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge for five months until he was able to convince the management to let him sing. For the next few years, he would play the Tootsie’s stage four nights a week, in addition to working security at the door. His first Single “Redneck Crazy” bolted up the chart to #1.
Up before Farr will be The Railers.
