Ten Don’t-Miss Buckle Up Music Festival Acts

0 Comments · Tuesday, July 8, 2014
It seems unnecessary to spotlight droolingly anticipated shows like Willie Nelson, Alabama, The Band Perry, Alison Krauss, Old Crow Medicine Show and Drive-By Truckers, so we’ll stick to some of the lower-tier artists that deserve your attention at the inaugural Buckle Up Festival.   

Countrified Musical in Dayton

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Country Music can be slippery territory for musical theater: It deals with primal emotions, lost love, heartbreak and gettin’ even. That might make for a powerful musical.  

Dwight Yoakam

Nov. 16 • Horseshoe Casino

0 Comments · Tuesday, November 12, 2013
Dwight Yoakam is an enormously influential figure for rescuing ’80s-era, Nashville, Tenn.,-based commercial Country music from its reliance on cloyingly familiar, Pop-oriented musical clichés and boring, hack storytelling truisms.    

Jake Owen

Aug. 15 • Riverbend

Owen’s rise to fame was quick, going from barroom entertainment to a signed artist in no time. And he has Kenny Chesney to thank.   

Kris Kristofferson

Aug. 11 • Taft Theatre

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 6, 2013
 Kris Kristofferson has led a rich and colorful life. And, at 76, he’s still going. Kristofferson’s latest album, Feeling Mortal, is as soul-baring as anything he’s ever recorded, his craggy voice, modest guitar strums and emotionally naked words as penetrating as they’ve ever been.  

Keith Urban

July 18 • Riverbend Music Center

3 Comments · Monday, July 15, 2013
Urban's newest single, “Little Bit of Everything,” is a blend of banjo, a few guitar-rifts and some random record scratching. In general, his new music is somehow more Country, despite not sounding like anything Country has been before.  

Merle Haggard

June 26 • Taft Theatre

0 Comments · Tuesday, June 25, 2013
The Hag is back in Cincy and still kicking. And, if you’re lucky, in honor of his musical heroes Lefty Frizzell, Bob Wills and his own father who sawed some strings, he just might kick up a shuffle with his fiddle.   

Nightbeds

June 21 • MOTR Pub

Just how good can music be without a healthy pinch of myth-making pixie dust sprinkled right over it? “Not very,” is how Winston Yellen would probably respond.   

Lucero

May 2 • Southgate House Revival

0 Comments · Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Lucero frontman Ben Nichols seems destined to be a Rock & Roll lifer, a guy who revels in playing 200 shows a year for a relatively small but passionate fan base.   

Dierks Bentley with Miranda Lambert

Feb. 15 • Nutter Center (Dayton)

2 Comments · Monday, February 11, 2013
While some musicians seem to think no one wants to listen to old school Country anymore (ahem … Blake Shelton), Dierks Bentley has always embraced the past.
