Penn’s Peak will welcome the Roots & Boots Tour, featuring Sammy Kershaw, Colin Raye and Aaron Tippin at 8 p.m. July 26.
Tippin has crusaded for the working man and woman since he ripped country music wide open with his uncompromising single “You’ve Got to Stand for Something.” His voice continued to ring loud and clear with such hits as “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way,” “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with the Radio,” That’s as Close as I’ll Get to Loving You,” “My Blue Angel” and “Kiss This.”
Five of his albums are certified “Gold” and a sixth CD, “Read Between the Lines,” stands at the “Platinum” level. Tippin’s honest lyrics and direct, impassioned vocals have built a large and devoted audience.
In the course of breaking into the ranks of stardom in country music, Kershaw has made contributions to more than just the charts. His platinum albums were propelled into the record books by hits such as “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful,” “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore,” “National Working Woman’s Holiday,” “Love of My Life,” “Cadillac Style,” “Don’t Go Near the Water,” “Haunted Heart,” and many other milestones.
Raye is nothing if not passionate. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” “Not That Different” and “If I Were You.” Always an energizing showman, he has also blazed through such vivid rockers as “My Kind of Girl,” “That’s My Story,” “I Can Still Feel You” and “I Want You Bad.” With 24 top 10 records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10-time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak Box Office and Roadies Restaurant and Bar. Penn’s Peak Box Office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only, no phone orders.
