Brantley Gilbert
w/ special guest Everette

Price: $54-$79
Venue: Sands Steel Stage at PNC Plaza at Musikfest
Gates: 6:00 pm | Show: 7:00 pm

Starting as a songwriter in Nashville, Gilbert launched his singing career in 2009 with the album “Modern Day Prodigal Son.” In 2011 he joined forces with all-star country producer Dann Huff to release “Halfway to Heaven” featuring singles, “Country Must Be Country Wide” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” which both went to number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. As part of his tour that year, Gilbert played Musikfest’s Plaza Tropical.

Gilbert was named Top New Male Artist at the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2013, and in 2014 won the American Music Award for Favorite Country Album for “Just As I Am.” He’s now one of only four country artists with back-to-back platinum certified albums among greats like Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.

With 2017’s “The Devil Don’t Sleep,” the songwriter again worked with Huff to capture the slow burn of electric guitars, crashing drums and acoustic flourishes that define the heavy country fused with hard rock edge of Gilbert’s musical attack. Hits from the album include “It’s About To Get Dirty,” “Bullet In A Bonfire” and “Tried To Tell Ya.”

THREE TIPS FOR STYLING AN ENTRYWAY

2018-07-31_11-26-37

via A Beautiful Mess – We’re still hard at work on our studio house—one mini space at a time. This week we completed two small spaces (double yay!), and today we’re teaming up with Martha Stewart Living at The Home Depot to share a few tips for styling an entry space.

But first, I must confess. I’m the worst at mini spaces. You know the ones. Too small to be a room, but still in need of decor and organization. I put them off and eventually get used to their half-finished status. They’re my blind spot.

But not this time! This time things are different. And you know what? I’m loving it. Our new entry space is inviting and organized. Since it’s the first thing we see when we walk through those doors every morning, I think of this space as our friendliest spot in the house, always waving “hell-oo-ooo!”

Daughtry
with special guests PUBLIC and Another Day Dawns

Price: $34-$54
Venue: Sands Steel Stage at PNC Plaza at Musikfest
Gates: 6:00 pm | Show: 7:00 pm

As the frontman for the band bearing his name, Daughtry has become one of the most visible and consistent rock & roll torchbearers of the 21st Century. Since rising to prominence on the fifth season of American Idol, he has released four albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S.

Daughtry’s self-titled debut was the best-selling album of 2007, which contained four Top Twenty hit singles including the Grammy-nominated smash “It’s Not Over.” Leave This Town also reached Number One in 2009, while 2011’s Break the Spell was certified gold. His group’s most recent record, 2013’s Baptized, featured the platinum-selling “Waiting for Superman,” which the singer points to as a turning point in his songwriting.

One thing that has kept the fire burning for Daughtry has been the need to constantly challenge himself creatively. He has collaborated with artists from Timbaland to Vince Gill to Carlos Santana and took on the role of Judas Iscariot in the 2016 live television performance of The Passion, and even fulfilled a lifelong dream by drawing the cover of a Batman comic which was rated one of the top 25 covers of the year by BatmanNews.com.

As the band continues work on its fifth album (which Daughtry describes in its early stages as having a “bluesy, almost rootsy undertone to it”), they look to contemporaries like Maroon 5 and Train as examples of acts able to maintain their relevance while rock & roll faces an uphill struggle in the mass media. “Those guys are inspirational, showing that you can come back and have a strong presence, even if what you’re known for doing is having a hard time,” he says.
