Coming to The Caverns
The Dead South
with The Rev Peyton’s Big Damn Band
Saturday, October 3
Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10a CT
A rock band without a drummer, a bluegrass band without a fiddler. To the gentlemen of The Dead South, a self-styled 4-piece string band from Regina, Saskatchewan, it’s about how, not what, you play. The Dead South’s combination of cello, mandolin, guitar and banjo has all the hallmarks of a group tuned to bygone times, but with their signature sleight of hand, The Dead South find distinctly ­modern bathos in this old time rigging.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has built its reputation the long, slow, hard way. After 12 years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton, the world’s foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the biggest little band in the country has pieced together one of the most dedicated followings out there.
Don’t miss The Dead South with the Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band on Saturday, October 3 in The Caverns. Get your tickets this Friday at 10a CT.

These past few years have been quite turbulent for Country Legend Randy Travis, but also have been very positive and touching. You truly find out who your friends are when you are down and out and honestly in the past few years Randy Travis has indeed discovered who his true allies were. Turns out just about 90 percent of the entire music community has rallied together in the past few months to honor him in many ways, one being inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame last year. During the award ceremony he stunned the entire music industry by singing “Amazing Grace”.

He was told he would never walk again let along perform and nobody is saying he will ever perform a full show ever again, but if this isn’t a miracle recovery from God I am left in a quandary of what is. It was rumored that the stroke he suffered was brought on by personal demons and that rumor was squelched by medical staff.

Now his friends and people whom idolize him will gather together at the Bridgestone arena in Nashville for a tribute concert for him. Tickets for Travis’ tribute concert go on sale 11 a.m. Friday at the Bridgestone Arena Box Office and through Ticketmaster, 1-800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Randy Travis Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit that raises money for stroke research and rehabilitation.

1 Night. 1 Place. 1 Time: A Heroes & Friends Tribute to Randy Travis is Feb. 8 and will feature performances from Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Rodney Atkins, Chris Janson, Jamey Johnson, Montgomery Gentry, Michael Ray, Ricky Skaggs, Michael W. Smith, The Randy Travis Band, Tanya Tucker, Josh Turner Wynonna Judd, Jeff Foxworthy, Alison Krauss, Ben Haggard, Neal McCoy and Phil Vassar will all perform throughout the evening which will consist of a variety of songs,including Travis’ iconic hits.

More include Travis Tritt, Kane Brown, James Dupre, Scotty McCreery, Joe Nichols, Collin Raye and the Bellamy Brothers also will be on hand to entertain the crowd that night. Now as most of you know the currently retired Kenny Rogers will be performing that night as well as Tanya Tucker and many many more. This will indeed be a stellar lineup for a wonderful cause.

At the age of 57 Randy Travis has recorded twenty studio albums and has charted more than 55 songs sixteen of them were number one hits. Randy Travis entered into the market with “Storms Of Life” during a mainstream market saturated with pop country but Randy persevered and actually assisted in ushering in Traditional sounding Country the likes of Alan Jackson.

However in the 1990’s even the pop country began to change direction and he could not coexist with those changes. He then decided to focus more on Gospel music and had one chart success with “Three Wooden Crosses”. He went on to pursue acting and television shows including the iconic film “Black Dog”. He has sold over 25 million records and 22 number one hits. Six number one albums and six Grammy awards and CMA awards.  And on Feb 4rth he will receive love from his peers and will be reminded how much we love and treasure him.
