38 SPECIAL
September 6, 2019

After more than four decades together, 38 SPECIAL continues to bring a signature blast of Southern Rock to over 100 cities a year. And at each and every show, thousands of audience members are amazed by the explosive power of the band’s performance.  Their many Gold and Platinum album awards stand in testament to the endurance of a legendary powerhouse.

With sales in excess of 20 million, most associate the band with their arena-rock pop smashes, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Chain Lightnin’,” “Second Chance,” and more – Timeless hits that remain a staple at radio,  immediately recognizable from the first opening chord, and paving the way to their present-day touring regimen.

Guitarist/vocalist DON BARNES says it’s all about maintaining that intensity in their live shows. “We never wanted to be one of those bands that had maybe gotten a little soft or complacent over the years. We’re a team, and it’s always been kind of an unspoken rule that we don’t slack up, we stack up. We go out there every night to win.”

Completing the team is bassist BARRY DUNAWAY, drummer GARY MOFFATT and keyboardist/vocalist BOBBY CAPPS. The most recent addition to the band is legendary virtuoso guitarist and vocalist JERRY RIGGS. For 38 Special onstage, it is a celebration of camaraderie and brotherhood, a precision unit bringing the dedication and honesty to a long history of classic songs, as well as surprisingly fresh new material.

Since 1976, the band has released more than 15 albums. And from the start, they’ve toured relentlessly, bringing their signature brand of ‘muscle and melody’ to fans worldwide.  It is that steely determination that lives on in the hearts of these ‘Wild-Eyed Southern Boys.’

Barnes adds, “This music keeps our wheels on the road. We’re a band that’s tried to stay honest with what has driven us over the years. We started out with nothing but bold determination to make our own history and to endure. Looking back now, it has been our greatest pride to have persevered and attained that level of success and longevity. For us, it’s the ultimate validation.”

“The magic’s still there,” adds Barnes. “It’s an emotional high for us to keep ‘bringing it’ after all these years. When those lights go down and we all walk up those steps to the stage and hear that crowd roar, it’s a real rush to the head. It feels like we’re getting ready to strap ourselves in and it just takes off from there.”

Jerrod Niemann
September 7, 2019

With a stunning batch of songs that push and pull at country music’s borders, Jerrod Niemann returned with the best album of his career in 2017. This Ride, the singer-songwriter’s fourth LP and his first for Curb Records, reminded fans and country radio alike that Jerrod is one of the genre’s most engaging vocalists and entertaining performers.

A singer of songs, he delivers a lyric with conviction and emotion, and is just as gifted in the studio, where he nods to history while reinventing the country sound for today’s audience. Onstage, he’s a master communicator, and with his continuing support of the USO (United Service Organization), lives with his patriotic heart on his sleeve. But nearly one year removed from This Ride’s release, the relentless creator’s travels are far from finished.

On This Ride, produced by Jerrod with Jimmie Lee Sloas, Jerrod continued the outside-the-lines approach he began with 2010’s Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury and its Platinum-certified Number One hit “Lover, Lover.” But he did so with a maturity and experience that only comes from a nearly decade-long career on the charts, the road and the radio.

“This album is like Life 2.0 for me,” says Jerrod of his creative rebirth. “If This Ride were a movie, it’d be told from the point of view of the man in the story instead of the boy. Challenging yourself as a human being and as a man is what life is all about, and it’s been rewarding to put that into my music.”

Debut single “God Made a Woman” was a prime example of that hard-won personal growth. The ballad is a classy, gorgeous love song that rightfully returns the object of affection to a pedestal. After a deluge of colloquial “hey girl” shout-outs on the radio in recent years, “God Made a Woman” restored dignity to country lyricism.  “You realize really quickly that the weight of the world is easier to hold with two sets of shoulders,” says Jerrod, who married wife Morgan in 2014. “That’s what I think about when I listen to this song.”

It was also indicative of Jerrod’s willingness to help country grow up. “There are a little less songs from the liver on this album, and more songs from the heart,” he quips.

Recently, that new philosophy has been in full view through the star’s support of American service members. In 2017, he saluted the USO with an appearance on Celebrity Family Feud, donating his winnings to the charity. Later that year, he embarked on a whirlwind USO Holiday Tour, entertaining troops in two continents and onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. And with 300,000 looking on at the 2018 National Memorial Day Parade in Washington, D.C., Jerrod unveiled a stirring anthem he describes without hesitation as his “favorite song he’s ever written.”  “It’s 100 percent heart, zero percent politics,” says the proud patriot of “Old Glory,” a passion project written after celebrating Christmas with soldiers stationed in Iraq.

Meanwhile, the moody breakup saga “But I Do” digs just as deep as “God Made a Woman,” showing off Jerrod’s well-thought vocal delivery. The dark “Comeback” is similarly fraught with relationship turmoil, and in “Whiskey Waitin’ on Ice,” which he co-wrote, Jerrod paints a picture of the ideal date night. It’s the hand-in-hand partner to “God Made a Woman.”

“It’s a tough love song. Guys are always tough in front of their friends, but when they get home, they’re big softies,” he says. “This is about a guy realizing that, because of life’s rat race, he has accidentally put his wife on the back burner. And he says, ‘Let’s fix this.’ It’s good for everyone to realize that in life you have to make time to live and love too.”
