JOE NICHOLS
From 2002’s crossover Number 3 country hit, and top 30 pop hit, "The Impossible", Country Superstar Joe Nichols harnessed that passion as a steady hit maker, and became Country Music Top Male Vocalist racking up six Number 1 hits and eight Top 10's, including chart-topping modern classics like “Brokenheartsville,” “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” and "Gimmie That Girl". He’s a four-time Grammy nominee, an ACM, Billboard, CMA, and CMT Award winner, and his album, Crickets, kept the success going, sending both 2013 hit “Sunny and 75", and 2014 Hit "Yeah", to Platinum-certified #1 status.
   Joe Nichols took the roundabout way to country success scoring his first major hit six years after landing his initial record deal. A native of Rogers, Arkansas, and a life-long St. Louis Cardinals fan, Nichols grew up watching his father, a trucker, play bass in a local country band. He himself played in a rock band during his teenage years, but soon came back to country, and after high school took a night job as a DJ while supporting himself as a mechanic by day. He performed regularly and worked on his songwriting. His hard work paid off in 2002 and 2003, and he started touring with Country Superstar Alan Jackson. After his 2005 #1 hit "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off", Joe Nichols started headlining his own shows and had many top ten hits including "What's A Guy to Do", "If Nobody Believed in You", "Size Matters (Someday)", "Wait For You", "She Only Smokes when She Drinks", "Sunny and 75", "Yeah", and the 2016 hit "Still Loving You".
   What Nichols loves has always been obvious. Growing up around friends who were into anything but country, he was different. Nichols was pulled in by the realness of singers like Merle Haggard, Marty Robbins, Don Williams, Keith Whitley and George Strait, and that connection would inspire his whole career. Even now with his new album Never Gets Old, Nichols says it reminds him of the songs that aren't necessarily deep but are meaningful. With a swaying front-porch groove, it features laid-back acoustic guitars and accordions that waft in with the breeze, as Nichols ponders the moments that keep love fresh – like watching his wife laugh, holding her hand, and ending each day in a tender embrace. Nichols says he knew it was special when all three of his kids started singing along the first time they heard it. 



Tommy Cash (brother of legendary singer, Johnny Cash)
Recording star Tommy Cash will never forget growing up in Northeast Arkansas, the youngest of seven children... "I remember Mama and Daddy working long hours to provide for us and give us a good Christian home... Most of all I remember a whole lot of love. My brother Johnny and I were the only two who made a career in the music business and I'm proud to do a special tribute to my brother... the legendary Johnny Cash in every show I perform."
   TOMMY CASH will perform a tribute to his older brother Johnny Cash at 8:00PM. When Tommy sings Johnny Cash songs including "I Walk The Line," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring Of Fire," you'll swear you are listening to Johnny himself. Tommy also had his own hits including a tune dedicated to JFK, RFK, and Martin Luther King entitled "Six White Horses." 1970 saw a pair of Top Ten singles for Tommy Cash called "One Hit Away," and "Rise and Shine," and the Top 20 hit, "I Recall a Gypsy Woman."



Lloyd McCarter and the Honky Tonk Revival
Raised in the poetry of old-time twang, Lloyd McCarter, from Lincoln, Nebraska, has been immersed in traditional country music his entire life.  Lloyd’s mother and father were both from musical families, and at the budding age of eight, Lloyd started playing guitar with his fathers’ band.  When he graduated from high school, Lloyd joined a touring act playing "pedal steel."  After seven years, Lloyd decided to start his own band and follow his true calling, “Honky Tonk,” not for money or fame, but to keep the legacy of his family and of his honky tonk heroes alive.
   In 2009, Lloyd McCarter assembled some of the best musicians in the country with Mike McCracken (who had played with Charlie Daniels, Big & Rich, and Chris Young) on Lap and Slide Steel Guitar and Vocals, Loren Tilton (who played with Jason Boland, BR549, Wayne Handcock and Junior Brown) on Slapping Up-Right Bass and Vocals, and Justin Jones, (who also played in various bands) on Drums.  Lloyd McCarter and the Honk Tonk Revival's last 2 albums, “Immortal For Now,” and “Tired of Being Me,” are played on radio stations all throughout the country.
   Lloyd McCarter was nominated for the 2014 Ameripolitan awards Honk Tonk Top Male Vocalist.   His band will be featured at the 2018 national Tumbleweed Country music festival in Kansas City, and they will also be playing at the SXSW (South by Southwest) 2018 music festival in Austin, TX.  Lloyd McCarter and the Honky Tonk Revival's original songs, showmanship, and musical expertise are entertaining to ALL ages, and it is common seeing 20- to 80-year olds dancing at their concerts.  Hire them today and you will be glad you did!
