KCYE Coyote Country and the Orleans Arena are teaming up to bring CountryFest — featuring Tracy Lawrence, Tracy Byrd, Love and Theft and Bomshel — to the Orleans Arena August 29, starting at 8 p.m.
Over the years, Tracy Lawrence has received widespread recognition and numerous accolades for his outstanding vocal talent. Lawrence was named Billboard’s Top New Male Vocalist in 1992, and claimed the coveted Academy of Country Music’s Top New Male Vocalist top spot just a year later. Lawrence also earned the Country Weekly Golden Pick Awards’ Video Artist of the Year award in 1995 and its Editor’s Choice Platinum Pick crown in 1996, for songs such as “Find Out Who Your Friends Are,” “Paint Me A Birmingham,” and “Lessons Learned.”
Tracy Byrd’s hits are well known among legions of country music fans and routinely spun by radio programmers from coast to coast. Since signing his first record deal in 1992, Byrd has become one of country music’s core artists, a Texas-born traditionalist equally skilled at serving up playful hits such as “Watermelon Crawl,” and “The Truth About Men,” as well as poignant ballads such as his signature song “Keeper of the Stars,” which netted the Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year accolade in 1996.
Love and Theft, a new band out of Nashville, consists of three incredibly talented singer/songwriters. Their debut single “Runway” is gaining popularity on radio stations across America.
Bomshel is hitting the airwaves with their first hit single “Fight Like a Girl.”
