More Info

Stagecoach Festival: Stagecoach is California's premiere country music festival. Held every spring at the Empire Polo Grounds, Stagecoach features the top names in country music. Past performers have included superstars like Willie Nelson, Eagles, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, and many more.

Beyond the music, there was a wide variety of art including country music memorabilia, antique cowboy gear, rawhide sculptures, western heritage installations and Americana folk arts. Additionally, music fans saw activities like saddle making, blacksmiths, rodeo gear, lasso and trail boss seminars, among others. Stagecoach also features top notch food from acclaimed California restaurants, as well as the Stagecoach Invitational BBQ Championship hosted by the Kansas City BBQ Society.

Kenny Chesney: Kenny Chesney is country music's resident hit-maker having placed a single in the top 5 of Billboard's US Hot Country singles chart every year since 1996. Chesney's collection of country party anthems from "Beer in Mexico" to "Out Last Night" keep the Tennessee native at the top of the charts and on the road with a busy concert schedule. Chesney has toured the nation every year since 2001 and tour dates for his 2011 "Going Coastal" outing have the prolific singer-songwriter touring the nation throughout August.

The road to fame for Chesney is a familiar tale of honky-tonk hustling and record label shopping in Nashville. Chesney moved to country music's capital in 1990 and became a fixture on the bar scene until 1992 when he secured a songwriting contract with Acuff Rose Publishing. Chesney released his first full-length album, "In My Wildest Dreams", in 1994 under BNA Records. However, it was not until 1997 that Chesney experienced mainstream success when his single "She's Got it All" hit #1 on Billboard's US Country singles chart. In the same year, Chesney also garnered the "New Male Vocalist of the Year" award from the Academy of Country Music and his fourth album, "I Will Stand," achieved gold-certification status. Since then, Chesney has churned out eight more LPs, all of which have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum by the RIAA. Additionally, Chesney has placed forty singles in the Top 40 of Billboard's Hot Country Songs, eighteen of which have rocketed to the top slot. Chesney has solidified his position as one of the top selling acts in terms of albums sales and concert revenue, however, he has not let this success go to his head. He still maintains his residence in Nashville, his signature cowboy hat, and asserts that "he is not that different from the kid who came to Nashville with a head full of dreams."

Kenny's production of hit singles and albums is matched only by his equally prolific concert schedule which has kept Chesney on the road for the better part of the last decade. The avid performer has been awarded the Entertainer of the Year award by both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association an astounding four times each. Between 2005 and 2008, Billboard honored Chesney with the "Touring Award for Top Package" award and his 2007 Flip Flop Summer Tour ranked as that year's highest grossing country outing. Chesney has perfected the country music concert experience with his laid back collection of backwoods meets beach hits such as "When the Sun Goes Down" and "Keg in the Closet." Tour Dates for Chesney's 2011 "Going Coastal" circuit have him visiting country music lovers everywhere from Tuscaloosa to Toronto. Whether his is riding a tractor on stage behind the backdrop of fireworks or slowing it down with his acoustic guitar, Chesney brings the honky-tonk to packed arenas all around the country. Whether you are based in Winnipeg or Wichita, make Eventful your source for upcoming Kenny Chesney concert dates and don't miss on one of country music's best entertainers.

The Cadillac Three: While The Cadillac Three might be a brand new band – a little over a year old as of this writing – native Nashvillians Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby Ray have been friends and musical co-conspirators for as long as anyone can remember. They've weathered their wild teenage years and even wilder tours, weathered major label letdowns and major league triumphs, conquered Music Row – Johnston co-wrote Keith Urban's #1 single “You Gonna Fly” – and crashed on the couches of strangers in far flung cities. These boys have seen more ups and downs than a Smoky Mountain tour guide. But in spite of all the trials and tribulations – or perhaps because of them – The Cadillac Three have emerged with a sound all of their own, a sound that hovers between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock and traditional Southern folk. You could call it country fuzz, you could call it hipster-billy, you could call it any number of over-hyphenated, adjective-strewn things but when you boil it all down there's only one way to describe it: damn good music, as pure and refreshing as a country creek. It's a sound that works as well in front of an amphitheater full of ZZ Top fans or the Dierks Bentley crowd as well as it does in the dive bars and dark corners of the underground music. Though, truth be told, the Cadillac Three's sound probably works best blaring out of your car speakers as you fly down the highway, wind blowing through your hair on the way to another wild Saturday night. Built around Masons thundering, melodic percussion and the sinewy intertwining of Johnston's guitar with Ray's lap steel, songs like “I'm Southern”, “Days of Gold” and “Whiskey Soaked Redemption” on their self-produced debut bristle with energy and explode at a moments notice. Tracks like “Down to the River”, “Get Your Buzz On” and “Back It Up” evoke the legends of Southern Rock – your Molly Hatchets, your Outlaws, your Ozark Mountain Daredevils – but they aren't nostalgic, aren't fetishistic reconstructions of by-gone eras. This the new sound of the New South, bigger and badder than ever.

Steep Canyon Rangers: .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. ......* * * * *..

Kiefer Sutherland: ....

To whom it may concern, [I guess if you’re reading this, that means you] .... My name is Kiefer Sutherland, and I’ve been asked to open a myspace page. Not that I am a complete technophobe, but to say that I am late to experience the internet would be an understatement. I am however, open to the challenge. .... The timing seemed right to start this page now, since I have a new film called MIRRORS, a project I am very proud of and eager to share with all of you. .... But as I sit down to write this, I must admit the notion of reaching out to people who have been there for me all these years feels more like fun than work. .... One of the frustrating parts of being on film and television is being unable to personally thank each and every one of you who have supported me over many years. You are the reason I’ve been able to live my dream as an actor, and for that I am profoundly grateful. .... I should probably start by telling you some basics about myself. I was born in London, England in 1966 at St. Mary’s hospital in Paddington. Seven minutes later I was followed by my twin sister, Rachel. My mother’s name is Shirley Douglas, and my father is Donald Sutherland. .... Both were in England working as actors. In 1969 my family moved from the UK to the US because of work opportunities for my father. We lived in Los Angeles until 1976. My parents then divorced, and Shirley, Rachel and I moved to Toronto, Canada. Through the obvious fears of change, I actually felt some excitement for the opportunity to live closer to my grandparents Irmie and Tommy Douglas. .... My grandfather was a political force in Canada. Early on in his career, he was the Premier of Saskatchewan and later became the leader of the New Democratic Party, otherwise known as the NDP. In Canada he is affectionately known as the father of health care, something I am immensely proud of. I will tell you more about him later. .... Rachel and I went to a variety of schools until I was almost sixteen years old. She was a much better student than I, a point I hope this letter will not reveal too greatly… .... From the time I was twelve I was fascinated with guitar, and thought somehow music was going to play a major part in my life. I had played, though not very well, in a few bands until one evening I went to see my mother in a production of WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOLF?. Her performance stopped me dead in my tracks. I had seen her in many plays before, and somehow always knew that this was my mother, Shirley onstage. Not this time. Somewhere in the 2nd act, she had become the character of Martha, and all traces of my Mum were gone. The curtain dropped, the play had finished, and I sat alone in an empty theater amazed at the power it had on me. .... From that point forward, my energy and desire had shifted to acting. I started studying and training, and soon was doing what all young actors do… looking for an agent, going out on large open casting calls, and getting used to the phrase “no thank you”. .... After a year and a half and a few small plays way, way, way out of town… the break of a lifetime loomed on the horizon. Film director Daniel Petrie had returned to Canada to tell his semi-autobiographical story, THE BAY BOY. .... Daniel was an accomplished director, having made films such as FORT APACHE, THE BRONX, RAISIN IN THE SUN, and THE DOLL MAKER, to name a few. .... During the first audition my heart was beating so loud I could barely hear him speak. Over what appeared to be an eternity of meetings, which in reality took about 3 weeks, I managed to collect myself and do my best. After an agonizing 2 days of waiting to hear his answer, I earned the part of Donald. .... I remember I had to step outside to jump up and down, so I wouldn’t hit my head on the 6 foot ceiling in my basement apartment. .... Over the course of making that film Dan took me under his wing and tried to teach me everything from character development to what a mark was. [A mark is a piece of tape or a chalked line where the actor stands in front of the camera]Much of what Dan had taught me, I find as important today as I did back then. .... This is what I will always consider to be the beginning of my career. THE BAY BOY was a small but successful film, and was a critical success in both Canada and the US. .... Within a year I moved to New York City and did some theater work at the Williamstown Theater Festival. I did some smaller showcases around town as well, but it wasn’t long before I found myself in Los Angeles, meeting with directors like Steven Spielberg and Rob Reiner. It is this period in the early 80’s that I will remember as one of the most exciting and happy times of my life. .... All my best,.. Kiefer

The Long Ryders: ......

......

......

..A STORY IN SONG..

..The Long Ryders were formed in late November 1982 out of the ashes of the Los Angeles punk scene. Kentucky born guitarist Sid Griffin left his band The Unclaimed after having bonded musically with former Boxboys drummer Greg Sowders at a jam session in a Mexican transvestite bar in Silverlake. The other guitar player was Steve Wynn but he left to form the Dream Syndicate whereupon Virginias Stephen McCarthy, a country music loving newcomer to L.A., stepped in after answering a Musicians Wanted ad in a local Korean newspaper. ..

..The original bass player was Barry Shank but he quit to return to graduate school and was replaced by ex-pat Englishman Des Brewer. The band recorded and released an EP in 1983 produced by ex-Sparks guitarist and former Beach Boys engineer Earle Mankey called 10-5-60 and it was so well received they decided to tour. Des Brewer dropped out at this point and was replaced by Indianas Tom Stevens, a former candidate in the NASA astronaut space program in Houston. ..

..Signed to hip indie label Frontier the band recorded their debut LP Native Sons with Henry Lewy producing. Lewy had worked with the Flying Burrito Brothers on their classic Gilded Palace Of Sin LP as well as with the Association, Barbara Streisand, Van Morrison and Lewy had enjoyed a long studio partnership with Joni Mitchell. Together the Long Ryders and Lewy came up with an album called a modern American classic by Melody Maker and soon found themselves on the cover of the New Musical Express as well as playing live on the BBCs Whistle Test TV show. ..

..After touring the USA for much of 1984 Europe was theirs for the taking in March/April 1985. Sold out gig followed sold out gig and the band were second only to The Smiths in the alternative charts of the day. Signed to Island Records in early summer the band released the album State Of Our Union in September 1985 and soon found themselves number one in the College Radio/Alternative charts for four weeks running in their native land. Their single Looking For Lewis & Clark crashed into the charts and became their signature song...

..The following year was spent consolidating their success. In America REM told them soon as we get through making the Replacements famous you guys are next!, in Spain they headlined a Barcelona festival to over 100,000 which was broadcast live on national radio, in Canada the Toronto Globe & Mail called them the best thing to happen to roots rock since The Band, in Italy they played eighteenth century opera houses and gave press conferences as if heads of state and in Great Britain The Long Ryders were considered like family to their fans and a breath of fresh air to the UK's rock critics. ..

..After a spring tour to work out new songs The Long Ryders released Two-Fisted Tales in early summer 1987. Produced by Ramones/Smithereens whiz Ed Stasium, it gave them a radio turntable hit with I Want You Bad and the touring began again. U2 asked them to open shows on the North American wing of their Joshua Tree tour and the high life beckoned. ..

..Alas it was not to be. Bassist Tom Stevens left the road to be with his young family in August and by Christmas Stephen McCarthy was gone as well. Island asked Messers. Griffin and Sowders for another album but without their old compadres their hearts were not in it and they foolishly if honorably declined...

..Since then The Long Ryders have graced us with several reissues, the latest being The Best Of The Long Ryders (Prima Records Ltd.), released June 2004 and still selling, selling, selling quite well to fans both old and new. ..

..Ask anyone in Wilco, the Black Crowes, the Jayhawks (who employ Stephen McCarthy) or Slobberbone and they will tell you: dont miss The Long Ryders on tour if they come to your town. Its been too long since the Earth rocked like this! ..

Travis Tritt: 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.

Tritt fell in love with music as a child, teaching himself how to play guitar when he was eight and beginning to write songs when he was 14. Travis was determined to have a musical career, but his parents didn't encourage him to follow his instincts. His mother didn't mind that he wanted to perform, but she wanted him to sing gospel; his father was afraid there was no money in singing. When he was 18, he tried to settle down, work, and have a family but was unsuccessful -- he was married and divorced twice before he was 22. He continued to play music while working various jobs, including one at an air-conditioning company. The company's vice president was a guitarist who gave up hopes of a musical career and urged Tritt to follow his dreams. Tritt quit his job and began pursuing a career full-time.

In 1982, Tritt began his pursuit by recording a demo tape at a private studio which was owned by Danny Davenport, who happened to be an executive at Warner Brothers. Davenport heard the vocalist's songs and was impressed, deciding to take Tritt under his wing. For the next several years, the pair recorded demo tapes while Tritt played the honky tonk circuit. The singer was developing a distinctive sound, adding elements of country-rock and Southern rock to his honky tonk.

Partway through in 1989, Warner Brothers' Nashville division signed Tritt, and his debut album, Country Club, appeared in the stores in the spring 1990. It was preceded by the Top Ten hit, "Country Club." Upon the release of his debut album, Tritt entered the first ranks of new country singers. His next two singles, "Help Me Hold On" and "I'm Gonna Be Somebody," hit number one and two respectively. "Put Some Drive in Your Country," which had a clear rock & roll influence, stalled at number four, since radio programmers were reluctant to feature such blatantly rock-derived music.

Tritt had a breakthrough success with his second album, 1991's It's All About to Change - went into multi-platinum territory.

T-r-o-u-b-l-e, Tritt's third album, was released in 1992-it had the number one single, "Can I Trust You With My Heart," and went gold. Tritt came back in 1994 with Ten Feet Tall & Bulletproof, which went platinum, spawned the number one single "Foolish Pride," and marked his highest position, number 20, on the pop charts. His 1995 compilation Greatest Hits: From the Beginning went platinum within six months of its November release. Restless Kind was released in 1996, followed two years later by No More Looking Over My Shoulder; Down the Road I Go was issued in fall 2000. Live in Concert appeared in 2007 from Big Bang while later that same year Category 5 released a new studio effort from Tritt called The Storm produced by the well known American Idol judge and musician Randy Jackson.

Travis recently wrapped production on the upcoming film “Fishers of Men” in which he portrayed the character Eddie Waters. Film will be released late 2011.He is currently traveling the country on his solo-acoustic tour and giving audiences an intimate experience playing his songs, and telling stories in a rare and intimate experience.

Cyndi Lauper: When "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" was released to radio in 1984, Cyndi Lauper suddenly found herself immersed with instant fame. The road to success was not easy for Lauper, who recently released the blues infused disc, Memphis Blues, in 2010. She struggled with finding her voice and paying her rent during the early 80s. She persevered, however, and in 1983 released her mega-successful debut, She's So Unusual. Nearly thirty years later and Cyndi Lauper isn't going anywhere. Currently on the road, Cyndi Lauper tour dates are scheduled throughout 2011 to promote her latest disc.

Lauper's debut album spawned four top five singles, sold nearly ten million copies worldwide, and earned Lauper the Best New Artist Grammy Award. Cyndi Lauper then embarked on the She's So Unusual Tour, and achieved worldwide acclaim. Her sophomore album, True Colors, was equally formidable and featured the #1 single of the same name. Throughout the '80s and '90s, this eclectic performer embarked on several tours including the True Colors Worldwide Tour, The Wildest Dreams Tour with Tina Turner, and Do You Believe? Tour with Cher. By the end of the decade, Lauper was an accomplished actress as well having won an Emmy for her guest role on the hit TV show - Mad About You.

Lauper continued to tour and record throughout the new millennium, with her sound moving towards electronica and dance. More recently, Lauper entered the world of Blues and released Memphis Blues in 2010. The album was an immediate hit and returned Lauper back to the upper echelons of the Billboard 200, earning her a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Blues Album.

Cowboy Junkies: Cowboy Junkies with Lee Harvey Osmond POP / FOLK

Cowboy Junkies began their singular journey in 1985 when Michael Timmins (guitar), Peter Timmins (drums) and bassist Alan Anton, one of Michael's oldest friends, began jamming in a garage. Michael and Alan had tried their luck with a couple of other bands, Hunger Project and Germinal, and had recently returned to Toronto after several years in New York and London. The next step was to find a singer. "I never wanted to be a musician, Margo Timmins confides, "but one day Mike asked me to sing. I said yes, but only if I didn't have to do it in front of the other guys. So I sang with Mike for a couple of days, and then he asked, 'Um, do you think it'd be okay if we brought the other guys in now?' I said, 'Well, okay. I guess so, I mean, if we have to.'

The band released its debut, Whites Off Earth Now!!, in 1986 on their own Latent Recordings label. Hypnotic and languorous, it revealed Michael's fascination with Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins and other seminal blues artists. The band toured the Southern and Southwestern US in support of the record, soaking up the music of Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers along the way, which, in turn, inspired their second album, The Trinity Session, self-released in 1988.

Recorded with a single microphone in Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity in one 14-hour session at a cost of $250 The Trinity Session featured spare, lilting originals alongside Jennings, Williams and Patsy Cline covers, as well as a haunting version of the Velvet Underground classic "Sweet Jane. With "Sweet Jane getting considerable airplay on college and commercial radio and reviewers lauding the band's fresh sound, word soon began to spread. Before long, the Junkies had signed to RCA Records, which reissued The Trinity Session to a wider audience and platinum sales.

Their subsequent albums The Caution Horses (1990), Black Eyed Man (1992), Pale Sun, Crescent Moon (1993), Lay It Down (1996) (which featured the Top 20 Modern Rock hit "A Common Disaster and earned Cowboy Junkies a gold record), Miles From Our Home (1998), Open (2001) and One Soul Now (2004) chronicle the band's evolution, a process Michael describes as gradual and organic. "It's become much easier to communicate musically over the years as we've all grown as musicians and of course, we have twenty years of shows behind us now. We're able to bring greater dynamics and infinite variety to the music as a result.

In 2005, Cowboy Junkies released Early 21st Century Blues, an album principally comprised of covers which Rolling Stone proclaimed "closely revisits the career-making Trinity, - hushed electric guitars, brushed drums and Margo Timmins' husky moans. It all adds up to a concept album about war that screams with a whisper. The band's most recent studio effort, At The End of Paths Taken (2007) was hailed by Paste as an album of "an alluring, gently haunting quality; inspired by reflections on family and world dynamics and mortality.

Cowboy Junkies returned to Toronto's Church of the Holy Trinity for a day in November 2006, joined by Ryan Adams, Natalie Merchant and Vic Chesnutt to revisit the repertoire of The Trinity Session in celebration of the original recording's 20th anniversary. Captured by filmmakers, Pierre and Francois Lamoureux, the resulting documentary, Trinity Session Revisited, was released as a DVD/CD in January 2008 to overwhelming critical response.

LEE HARVEY OSMOND will support the show. Lee Harvey Osmond is Tom Wilson, some of the Cowboy Junkies, a few Skydiggers, Ray Farrugia from Junkhouse, Brent Titcomb and a lot of groove. Check them out at www.myspace.com/lhosmond
