Upcoming Concerts


 

Craig Campbell

Thursday • September 27 

Moonshine Flats in Downtown San Diego

Growing up in a strong Southern Baptist home, Campbell fell in love early with the sounds of Country radio, and built a foundation not just as a singer and performer, but as a songwriter. That dedication to the craft made him not only understand the importance of crafting songs like the fan-favorite “Tomorrow Tonight” with trusted collaborators, but also to keep writing, constantly. It’s an ethos that recently led to Garth Brooks himself cutting his track “All American Kid” for Man Against the Machine. And now, the release of “Outskirts of Heaven,” serves as the blueprint for his road ahead, full of songs that tug at heartstrings, push boundaries and seep in with infectious melodies. “All the songs we are writing are all very committed and current,” he says. “But it’s still me, singing. That’s the main thing I want people to say, at the end of the day: that I’m a great singer, who truly loves country music.”

Frankie Ballard

Friday • September 28

Moonshine Beach in Pacific Beach

Frankie Ballard’s rise as an artist comes from the connection he makes through his music and the real emotion it creates with his listeners. Nowhere has that been more evident than in Ballard’s breakthrough Top 15 hit, “Helluva Life.” Helluva Life is the opener from Sunshine & Whiskey, an album that announces Ballard as one of the genre’s most nuanced singers and writers. He first graced the public spotlight with two Top 30 singles, “Tell Me You Get Lonely” and “A Buncha Girls,” appearing on the Grand Ole Opry and playing packed arenas opening for Kenny Chesney and on major tours with Taylor Swift and longtime idol, Bob Seger. Ballard says, the album “…represents the beginning of what people will call my sound.” It’s a mixture of influences. From country classics to blues legends and Southern rock to contemporary sounds, his sound is held together by his artistic personality. Like heroes including Willie Nelson and Hank Jr., Ballard makes everything he touches his own, a result, more than anything, of a decade of honing his craft on stages all over the country. Capturing the essence of his energetic stage shows, Sunshine & Whiskey represents the perfect re-emergence for a singer whose journey reflects all of life’s ups and downs.

Dylan Schneider

Thursday October 11 at Moonshine Beach 

CLICK HERE to Buy Tickets!

You almost never see an artist do this much this quick, especially in country music. Dylan Schneider is wise beyond his years, especially when it comes to his songwriting. But perhaps even more impressive is Schneider’s ability and willingness to connect with fans on a personal level. “I used to freak out if an artist would respond or interact with me. It’s incredibly important to me that I do the same with my fans.” That love for fans has helped grow Schneider a collective social following of over 1,000,000. Named “country music’s next rising star” by Billboard, the 18-year-old has spent the better part of the last two years becoming the epitome of the modern country artist.

Since his debut EP in 2016, Dylan continues to impact the country charts with every release that follows. Schneider’s latest EP, Spotlight’s On You hit the No.1 spot on the iTunes Country Album Charts. Dylan recently toured as direct support for Chris Lane and Granger Smith, and is currently headlining his own tour, selling out shows across the United States and the UK. Schneider and his fans have taken over the country music conversation digitally, with a rapidly growing 57 million total streams on Spotify and 32 million video views. His current radio single, “How Does It Sound,” is nearing 13 million streams, evidencing the consumer demand for the track. Each release finds Schneider surpassing his peers and connecting with his listeners in a meaningful way, strengthening the foundation he has been building for years.

Colt Ford

Thursday November 8 at Moonshine Beach 

CLICK HERE to Buy Tickets!

The reason Colt Ford’s blend of country and rap feels so natural has everything to do with his background, both professional and personal. Colt grew up listening to country – his first concert was Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton – along with R&B and hip-hop. By 2011, Ford had created a larger than life hillbilly redneck public image, but he was also a sly, passionate, and multi-layered writer and businessman, and as a former drummer, he knew what to do in a recording studio. With his sixth studio album, released in 2017, the aptly named Love Hope Faith, Colt Ford continues to live out his boyhood dream – the one where you “wake up on a mission/to buy that beat-up Gibson,” as he sings on “No Rest.” Love Hope Faith is exactly that, a message to to his loyal fan base, and a strike against the divisiveness plaguing our country, celebrating the things that bring us together – friends, family, our faith in a better future.

Eli Young Band

Friday November 9 at Moonshine Beach 

CLICK HERE to Buy Tickets!

The ELI YOUNG BAND has always been unique in modern Country music – a true band of brothers who play their own instruments, write their own songs and cling fast to their Texas roots. They’d even go so far as to call themselves “misfits,” but with their fourth major label album, FINGERPRINTS (The Valory Music Co.), they’re finally embracing what makes them different once and for all. Eli founded the band with guitarist James Young, bassist Jon Jones and drummer Chris Thompson at the University of North Texas in 2000, building a grass-roots fanbase that propelled each of their previous three albums into the Top 5 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart, with 2014’s 10,000 TOWNS bowing at No. 1. Three No. 1 singles gave the band an edgy, romantically-charged identity (“Crazy Girl,” “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” and “Drunk Last Night”). Their stable of hits collected Platinum and Multi-Platinum certifications that lead to Grammy and CMA Award nominations, Billboard Awards and an ACM trophy for Song of the Year (“Crazy Girl”). All of these accolades combined with their loyal fanbase and successful touring have resulted in over 500 million streams of their career catalogue. This summer, the road will take them from California to Maine, headlining shows with a set of brand new – but classic sounding – Eli Young Band tunes. And it will likely be just as much fun for them as it is for fans.

Lindsay Ell

Saturday January 19, 2019 at Moonshine Beach 

CLICK HERE to Buy Tickets!

Coming from a family with deep musical roots, the Stoney Creek Records’ artist, Lindsay Ell, started playing piano and guitar at a very early age. “I learned how to play guitar traveling to country-bluegrass camps with my dad, and knew right from the beginning of my strong passion for country music.” The Calgary native was discovered at 13 by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman,” “Takin’ Care Of Business”). “Randy learned guitar from master jazz guitarist Lenny Breau, so I dove head-first into this world of blues, jazz and rock guitar – learning all these different solos, switching radio stations and trying to get an idea of where all those techniques come from. I was listening to Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Clapton, Derek Trucks and all those incredible guitar players.” The young star has traveled the world with The Band Perry and Luke Bryan and showcased her multi-instrumental dexterity as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country. She continues to rock stages around the world in support of her latest album The Continuum Project released in May 2018.
