#ComingToSKyPAC Charlie Daniels Band

2014-band-bwBowling Green, KY — (August 12, 2015) — From his Dove Award winning gospel albums to his genre-defining Southern rock anthems and his CMA Award-winning country hits, few artists have left a more indelible mark on America’s musical landscape then Charlie Daniels. This legendary artist and his band,the Charlie Daniels Band, will perform at SKyPAC Sunday, November 22nd at 7:30 p.m. presented by Overhead Door Company of Bowling Green.

An outspoken patriot, beloved mentor to young artists and still a road warrior at age 78, Charlie has parlayed his passion for music into a multi-platinum career and a platform to support the military, underprivileged children and others in need. Raised among the longleaf pine of North Carolina, Charlie began his career playing bluegrass music with the Misty Mountain Boys.

After moving to Nashville in 1967, he began making a name for himself as a songwriter, session musician and producer. Elvis Presley recorded a tune Charlie co-wrote titled “Its Hurts Me,” which was released on the flip side of “Kissin’ Cousins.” He played on such landmark albums as Boy Dylan’s Nashville Skyline and tired his hand at producing on the Youngbloods’ Elephant Mountain and Ride the Wind.

The Time Jumpers featuring Dawn Sears, Vince Gill, Kenny Sears and Ranger Doug Green

The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) announces that The Time The Time Jumpers Jumpers featuring Dawn Sears, Vince Gill, Kenny Sears and Ranger Doug Green will be performing on SKyPAC’s main stage March 25, 2014. Tickets are available online at TheSKyPAC.com, by phone 270-904-1880 or at the SKyPAC Ticket Office, 601 College Street, Bowling Green, KY.

Vince Gill, 20-time Grammy winner and 1564_TimeJumpers_SOKY_QrtV_Admember of the Country Music Hall of Fame returns to SKyPAC as a member of The Time Jumpers. Gill opened SKyPAC with his sold out performance opening night, March 10, 2012. “Ranger Doug” Green is also making his second appearance at SKyPAC. He is a member of the group Riders in The Sky, who performed at SKyPAC in June 2012.

Tap any member of The Time Jumpers on the shoulder and the face that turns to greet you will be that of one who’s made major contributions to the richness and vigor of country music. The Time Jumpers was established in Nashville in 1998 by an assemblage of high-dollar studio musicians. The notion of building a rabidly devoted following was the last thing on their minds. But that’s what happened.

The Time Jumpers—the band’s new and first album for Rounder Records—is also the group’s first studio project. Their live album—Jumpin’ Time, released in 2007—earned them two Grammy nominations and a high-profile segment on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered.

The current edition of The Time Jumpers includes 11 members, each a master of his (and, in one case, her) instrument. Alphabetically—which is the only diplomatic way to present such a group of evenly matched talent—they are Dennis Crouch (upright bass), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Paul Franklin (steel guitar), Vince Gill (vocals, electric and acoustic guitars), “Ranger Doug” Green (vocals, acoustic rhythm guitar), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Dawn Sears (vocals), Kenny Sears (vocals, fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle, vocals) Jeff Taylor (accordion, piano) and Billy Thomas (drums, vocals).(thetimejumpers.com)
