Congratulations are in order for local band Flipoff Pirates. The group won a contest on Friday (Jan. 25) at George’s Majestic Lounge that will add them to the lineup for the Wakarusa festival, which takes place this summer on a mountainside in Franklin County.View Post
Eric Church tells me he use to play anywhere that would have him. That meant he and his band plugged in at dive bars, honky tonks, metal clubs and more.
Now, the days of playing small clubs are over for Church, a North Carolina native and a rising country music star.
On the strength of his Grammy-nominated 2011 album “Chief,” Church has graduated to bigger halls and will launch the brand new “Blood, Sweat and Beers” tour with a show in Fort Smith on Thursday (Jan. 19).
Church chatted with me recently about his rapid ascension after many years spent on the road and his excitement in having a headlining tour of his own. The resulting story published Friday in our What’s Up!, entertainment section. You can read more about Church here, if you’re a subscriber to our print or digital products.
Tickets are available by calling 800-745-3000 or via Ticketmaster online. Prices are $29.50-$39.50, plus Ticketmaster fees.View Post brand, cadillac, chief, church, concert reminders, eric church, eric church chief, music, north, road, the cadillac black, thursday
