As half of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” duo Brooks & Dunn, Ronnie Dunn has played everywhere from the arena to the rodeo, beer joints to casinos. His Texas twang and electric guitar chronicle 20 years of wide-ranging exploits on his self-titled debut solo album. After he and Kix Brooks played their last show together in 2010, Dunn set to work as the new album's sole producer and main songwriter. "This time around, I baked it,” he said. “I baked it and cooked it, and cooked it again.” His signature rowdy honky-tonk kicks through in the single “Let the Cowboy Rock,” and the poignant ballad of forgiveness, “Bleed Red," urges listeners to “turn the anger into water / let it slip through our hands.”
Calgary country phenom Lindsay Ell, only 22 years old, warms up the crowd and makes sure there are no boot-snagging holes in the stage. Her charismatic concerts and strict studio work ethic have propelled her into spotlights at JunoFest and SXSW, where she's unleashed her shimmering guitar chops and Keith Urban-inspired songcraft. The evening of lovin’ and leavin’ unfolds in the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, which was built in the ‘50s and has since underwent extension renovations in 2005. The venue’s made over interior treats up to 2,500 guests with comfortable seats, finely tuned sound, and fireworks every time the band sings the evening’s secret word.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
