Thin Lizzy is one of rock music's most recognizable names. The fiery Irish band exploded onto the scene with a fresh sound, look and attitude.
Lead by the incomparable Phil Lynott, the band reached many peaks and influenced generations of musicians with classic tracks such as "Jailbreak," "The Boys Are Back In Town," "Still In Love With You," "Cold Sweat," "Emerald" and "Don't Believe A Word."
Get the Led Out is a Led Zepellin tribute band which has made previous visits to the Peak - always before a large crowd.
Easton Corbin is a country singer who had a hit with "A Little More Country Than That."
He has been nominated as the ACM's top new soloist.
For Trower, this is a return visit to Penn's Peak.
He has been heralded as one of the most influential Guitar players to come out of the British Blues Rock scene, and was tagged by the press with the nickname of "The White Hendrix" back in the 70's. Robin was in the audience during a performance by Jimi Hendrix those many years back, and he readily admits that the Experience changed his approach to the guitar.
Williams is a country singer, songwriter and a 2010 inductee to the Country Music Hall of Fame. He grew up in Portland, Texas. After seven years with the folk-pop group Pozo-Seco Singers, he began his solo career in 1971, singing popular ballads and amassing 17 No. 1 hits, including "Til the Rivers All Run Dry," "It Must Be Love," and "Some Broken Hearts Never Mend."
The Outlaws are known for their own high-powered, guitar-driven country-rock, complete with exciting self-penned music and stellar three-part harmony.
