Show lineup also includes Rising Country Stars Walker McGuire & Jillian Jacqueline
Award-winning country artist Easton Corbin will headline a star-studded lineup at Pikes Peak Center on Wednesday, July 11 for the final show of the 2018 95.1 NASH FM/Jon Eddy Productions (“JEP”) Concert Series. The show will begin at 6:30 p.m. with opening acts, duo Walker McGuire and Jillian Jacqueline.
This show will be one of several 2018 events put on by Jon Eddy Productions that will benefit The Empty Stocking Fund, a local non-profit operated by The Gazette and El Pomar Foundation to benefit 20 local non-profits in the Colorado Springs community. Ten percent of each ticket sold will be donated The Empty Stocking Fund.
Tickets, starting at $24, will go on sale on Friday, March 2 at 10 a.m. at the Pikes Peak Center Box Office, PikesPeakCenter.com, AXS.com, and via phone at (719) 520-SHOW. Tickets can also be purchased at The Broadmoor World Arena box office or BroadmoorWorldArena.com.
Corbin’s latest single, “A Girl Like You” has been climbing the Billboard Charts for months and country music fans everywhere have been singing along as the single continues to hover near the top of the charts. Corbin’s self-titled debut album released in 2010 spawned back-to-back hits “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It,” making him the first male country artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1. Corbin set a career-best debut on Country Airplay with his top 5 hit single, “Baby Be My Love Song,” from his No. 1 debuting album “About To Get Real."
The show will also feature two exciting opening acts, duo Walker McGuire, made up of Jordan Walker and Johnny McGuire, who’s brand new self-titled EP was just released January 12; and Jillian Jacqueline who released her latest album, “Side A,” in September 2017, and appeared on Late Night with Seth Myers in mid-January.
The concert at Pikes Peak Center is the culmination of a four-show series, which kicked off on February 21 at The Whiskey Baron Dance Hall & Saloon, featuring Granger Smith, Josh Gracin and local favorite, Exit West.
The second show in the series will also be at The Whiskey Baron on Saturday, April 21 and will feature veteran country music superstar Joe Nichols joined by the winner of season four of “The Voice,” Danielle Bradbery, and, once again, Exit West.
On Friday, May 4, Casey Donahew, known for hits such as “Double Wide Dream” and “Feels This Right,” headlines the third show of the series, joined by Colorado Springs favorites, Whiskey Kate and Donovan Lee.
NASH Program Director and on-air talent Mike Dylan is excited about the continuation of the series, “These artists really represent the more traditional country sound that has made a big comeback in Colorado Springs. Easton has had some big hits - I expect a lot of singing along!”
These sentiments are echoed by Scott Jones, Market Manager and Vice President for Cumulus Media, the parent company for 95.1 NASH FM. “We’re thrilled to be a part of this concert series and to bring national acts like Eason Corbin to country fans from all over Southern Colorado. It’s hard to compare anybody to the legendary George Strait, but that’s who Easton reminds me of. There’s no better way of wrapping up the series than to have him and his band on stage at Pikes Peak Center.”
Jon Eddy, owner of JEP, is enthusiastic about live music in Colorado Springs, “Bringing this caliber of music to Southern Colorado is important. Live music is such a vital part of community. To have shows like this here at home in Colorado Springs brings so many advantages to our community; from drive time, to parking, safety, affordability, convenience and beyond. We’re thrilled to be working with Pikes Peak Center as a large venue for our final show in this series. To run another event that benefits our friend and partner agencies with the Empty Stocking Fund is also a thrill and infinitely rewarding. We can do so much good for our community all while having a good time!”
The 2018 95.1 NASH FM/Jon Eddy Productions Spring Concert Series is sponsored by Larry H. Miller Toyota of Colorado Springs, Larry H. Miller Liberty Toyota and Pepsi.
