Fourth Annual 99.9 Kiss Country “Stars and Guitars” to Feature Sheryl Crow, Darius Rucker, Love and Theft and Craig Campbell at Hard Rock Live on November 17
Tickets on Sale Saturday, September 28 at Noon
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Country music and crossover fans are in for a treat at the fourth annual 99.9 Kiss Country “Stars and Guitars” concert featuring Sheryl Crow, Darius Rucker, Love and Theft and Craig Campbell at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sunday, November 17, 2013 at 7 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, September 28 at noon.
Sheryl Crow calls her country debut album Feels Like Home, her most focused album yet. But, this is not Sheryl’s first musical rodeo. She is, after all, a nine-time Grammy Award winner who has sold more than 50 million albums around the world. Still, Feels Like Home captures the sound of a great and established artist enjoying a kind of fresh start.
Darius Rucker, who first attained multi-platinum status as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Hootie & the Blowfish, wrote 10 of the 12 tracks on his latest album, True Believers. The songs range from the feel-good sing-along “Radio” to the sophisticated narrative of “Shine.” He expressed special pride in the raw and realistic sentiments of songs like “Miss You” and “I Will Love You Still,” a duet with young powerhouse vocalist Mallary Hope.
Love and Theft may be celebrating the release of their second studio album, but to the ACM-nominated country duo, the self-titled release might as well be their first. And, in a way, it is. Love and Theft is Stephen Barker Liles and Eric Gunderson’s first album since joining RCA Nashville, the home to many of their musical inspirations.
“We feel like people will be hearing us for the first time,” said Gunderson.
Barker Liles agrees and credits the label’s storied history with helping to reenergize the band.
“The history of RCA Records is incredible. Just knowing that we are on the same label as some of our biggest influences, like Elvis Presley, is an awesome feeling.”
Growing up in rural Lyons, Georgia, singer/songwriter Craig Campbell learned one important lesson from the ZZ Top records his mother favors: “Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man.” That’s one reason Campbell is always impeccably well-tailored on stage and at industry awards shows and events. But, he says there’s an even more important reason – respect. For Campbell, caring enough to wear a pressed, button-down shirt and black cowboy hat when he performs is a show of respect for his fans, for the successful career he considers himself lucky enough to have, and most of all for the country music genre itself. It’s also a credit to his no nonsense, “yes, ma’am/no sir” upbringing, which made Campbell into the Southern gentleman he is today.
