- Don’s nickname: “The Gentle Giant”
- How he got that name: not only does he have an imposing build, he touches listeners’ hearts with his leather-textured baritone and sweet, simple ballads
- The name given to his musical style in the ’70s: “countrypolitan”
- Which was: a fancy term for country-pop invented by listeners who didn’t want to admit they were into country music
- 2010: the year he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame
- 1980: the year he made a cameo in Smokey and the Bandit II and made critics everywhere question if they could give an award for “Coolest Cameo in ‘Smokey and the Bandit II’”
- Number of #1 hits that made Don one of the biggest stars of the ’70s: 17
- Gentle Giant favorites you’re bound to hear live and warm: “Good Ole Boys Like Me,” “You’re My Best Friend,” “Tulsa Time,” and his all-time heart-hugger “I Believe in You”
- 2012 album that saw Don return with what Country Weekly called “his strongest set in the last 20 years”: And So It Goes
- Which primed fans for: his latest album, Reflections, in which Don lends his voice to works from his favorite songwriters, including Townes Van Zandt and Merle Haggard
Murat Theatre at Old National Centre
Past the glimmering main lobby, past the Middle Eastern accents and hand-carved murals of the Egyptian Room, past the Victorian splendor of the Corinthian Hall, Old National Centre’s Murat Theatre continues the venue’s brand of elegance. Therein, row upon row of red-upholstered seats face a proscenium-style stage that entertains crowds with Broadway shows and musical acts. Overhead, the soft warmth of a chandelier ringed by a floral mural offsets the brilliance of the stage lighting and the performers’ flashlight-juggling routines.
Old National Centre
Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’s growing population of Freemasons. The building has since been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
