Spayed Koolie (Friday Nov 8th)

Spayed Koolie is the musical project created by David Dorr. The band is comprised of several handpicked prodigies by David himself to collectively convey the melodies that he has extracted from the depths of the human soul. The music finds redemption mixed with, sorrow and anger, blended smooth like a warm glass of Calvados Brandy with a slight hint of American blues in the aftertaste. The songs rich with musical vibrance, emanate the sounds of rock and roll through edgy guitar riffs, eclectic bass runs and classical piano tones. Like Cooley himself, David has in a similar fashion visited the depths of emptiness, brought forth from personal demons and toxic relationships, some resulting from fate's cruel timing, and others a shameful product of himself.

Mark Wills (Saturday Nov 9th)

Have a chat with Mark Wills for a few minutes, and he's likely to discuss the passions of his life - his music, his family, the live concerts, his TV show "3 Gun Nation,"  and of course the social causes he pours himself into.  Wills has numerous hits under his belt already "Jacob's Ladder," "Don't Laugh At Me," "I Do (Cherish You)" and his seven-week number one smash, "19 Something," which was the 2nd most played song at country radio for the 2010 decade to name just a few.  In addition, he has sold millions of albums.

 Daryle Singletary (Saturday Nov 9th)

Hardcore country traditionalist, Daryle Singletary, has built a career based on musical integrity. By the time he reached his teens, Daryle was a rabid country music fan, enthralled by the sounds of Keith Whitley, George Strait and his all-time favorite, Randy Travis.With chart-topping singles including “I’m Living Up to Her Low Expectations,” “I Let Her Lie,” “Too Much Fun” & “Amen Kind of Love,” among many others, Daryle Singletary still knows who he is, and still knows what he likes.

Andy Griggs (Saturday Nov 9th)

Andy grew up listening to 10,000 different albums, all the way from Jimmy Swaggart to Prince and everything in between. It was nothing to go straight from Ozzy to Ralph Stanley, on his daddy’s old turntable.  By the time he was a teenager the nights were ending with his brother Mason sittin’ on the couch singin’ his heart out, just him alone with his guitar.

Jerrod Niemann (Saturday Nov 9th)

Jerrod Niemann’s debut for Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville includes up-tempo cuts, heartache balladry, wicked wordplay and a couple of cool covers, all woven together with short comedic interludes. The 20 tracks constitute a progressive, album-length voyage into utterly unique territory in the country music landscape.


Headliner - Travis Tritt (Saturday Nov 9th)

Travis Tritt was one of the leading new country singers of the early '90s, holding his own against Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and Alan Jackson. He was the only one not to wear a hat and the only one to dip into bluesy Southern rock. Consequently, he developed a gutsy, outlaw image that distinguished him from the pack. Throughout the early '90s, he had a string of platinum albums and Top Ten singles, including three number one hits.
