The Big Show
Charlie Daniels Band
- How long Charlie Daniels has been playing that fiddle hard: more than 50 years
- His fortes: rabble-rousing spirit, red-white-and-blue circulatory system, country tunes that take the backroads into Southern rock
- The Beelzebub-whuppin' hit that brings down the house: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia"
- As the lead singer of Poison: Bret Michaels gave the world monster hits such as “Every Rose Has Its Thorn” and “Nothin' But a Good Time”
- As a philanthropist: he uses his celebrity powers to battle diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and cancer, and support our troops
- As a solo artist: crowds can expect a batch of Poison favorites, new tunes such as "A Beautiful Soul," and caterwauling fans pelting him with wedding garters
The Marshall Tucker Band
- As early stars of the burgeoning Southern-rock genre: The Marshall Tucker Band appeals to fans of rock, country, gospel, and just plain ol' good songs sung from the heart and gut
- '70s hits that still warm the hearts of inner ramblers and lovelorn outlaws: “Heard It in a Love Song” and “Fire on the Mountain”
- Fun fact: although lead singer Doug Gray is used to being called Marshall, nobody in the band is named Marshall Tucker
