One of the most popular singer-songwriters in music today, Jennifer Nettles has achieved huge success as part of the multi-platinum group Sugarland. She's earned numerous accolades for her wonderful songwriting abilities, including Grammy, ACM and CMA Awards. Her new solo project, That Girl, finds Nettles showing off her beautiful voice in a variety of styles -- including country, gospel and '70s radio -- under the direction of super-producer Rick Rubin. On her headlining tour, Nettles delivers an emotionally powerful performance that touches on her Sugarland hits and new songs, including her album's title track and "Me Without You."

For nearly fifty years, The Irish Rovers stand as one of the original and leading international ambassadors of Irish music by charming audiences with exciting stage shows and masterful story-telling. As one recent newspaper stated, "The band has sold millions of albums, but to really experience them, you need to see them live, because as well as being able to deliver a heart-warming ballad or moving instrumental, these Rovers can rock." Their anthems of good cheer and revelry connect with generations of fans worldwide.
The Rovers will also present newer favorites, like "Drunken Sailor," "Dear Little Shamrock Shore," "Gracehill Fair," "The Dublin Pub Crawl" and many more. On their last sold out concert tour, The Irish Rovers garnered rave reviews for their new Drunken Sailor, Home In Ireland and Merry Merry Time of Year albums. Due to YouTube, their "Drunken Sailor" song has reached a new young audience, with almost nine million hits. The Rovers responded to this action on YouTube by heading back to the studio and recording a new CD of rousing, energetic sea songs, including a tribute to The Titanic for its 100th anniversary.
