2016 Beaver Creek Independence Day Celebration

Lineup


 Jerrod Niemann    
Jerrod Niemann Beaver Creek   Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann is one of country music’s most original and talented innovators.  Jerrod’s new single is a duet with his good friend and labelmate Lee Brice, called “A Little More Love” and produced by Jerrod, Lee and Jimmie Lee Sloas.  Jerrod is also adding the finishing touches to his forthcoming album on Curb Records which will follow his RIAA Platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 smash, “Drink to That All Night,” from his High Noon album, on which Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks. Niemann’s chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.” Second release Free The Music featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me” and the poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.” Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association and CMT while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.
 Redhead Express    
 Redhead Express Beaver Creek   Alaskan natives and sisters, The Redhead Express have been busy, crisscrossing North America, and building a loyal fan base over the past 8 years.  Raised in a wide-open landscape, and coming from a large family (who all travel with the girls and work behind the scenes), these siblings are capturing the hearts of America.   Audiences are impressed by the uniqueness and excellence of instrumentation, consisting of Banjo, Acoustic Guitar, Fiddle and Standup Bass.  However, it’s the blended vocals of Kendra, LaRae, Alisa and Meghan that captivate and bring you into their world of family and musical harmony. 

Guided by diverse musical influences, from late 19th Century Appalachian music, to early jazz and blues,  to 80's rock and 90's country in their original songs, the girls also have been known to break out into Pharrell Williams, Maroon 5 and One Republic during their shows.  With over 2000 performances and 400,000 miles travelled, they are seasoned and ready for the shows and road that lie ahead.  The music of the Redhead Express will take you to a place that is new and refreshing – so climb aboard!

 Jackson Michelson    
 Jackson Michelson Beaver Creek   Raised in Corvallis, Oregon, Jackson Michelson kicked off his country career on the West Coast, carving out a sound that blended the rootsy twang of the American South with the sunny, feel-good spirit of the Pacific Coast. Nashville — the official capital of country music — lay 2,300 miles to the southeast, but Michelson focused on his home turf first, building an audience of West Coast fans who were drawn to his high-energy shows and relatable songwriting. By the time he did move to Nashville, he'd already spent years on the road, growing his fan base show-by-show and earning a record contract with Curb Records in the process.

Songs like "The Good Life," which has since become a popular track on SiriusXM radio, helped spread Michelson's music to new fans across the country. Most of the grunt work, though, was done on the road, where Michelson delivered more than 100 shows per year. He opened for artists like Lee Brice, Blake Shelton and Frankie Ballard, earning new fans along the way. To him, those fans were everything. They were his muse, his support system, his champions. Crowd interaction became a crucial part of every Jackson Michelson show, and he always ended each gig the same way: by meeting fans, shaking hands and becoming friends with those who enjoyed his music.

"Crowd engagement is so important to me," he says. "My show is just as much about the band paying attention to the crowd, as the band putting on a show for the crowd. It's not just about us; it's about the experience we're all gonna have together."

Tyller Gummersall     
 Tyller Gummersall    Nashville recording artist and Colorado singer songwriter Tyller Gummersall began his career at the early age of eight performing Hank William’s Hey Good Lookin’ at the County Fair Talent contest. That same year, Ty took the advice of a successful local performer and began taking lessons from his music men- tor and two time national flat pick champ Gary Cook.

His eighth year was a big one in terms of getting his first horse, his first guitar, and winning his first talent contest! He persisted working at his future career and at fourteen he began voice lessons with respected Los Angeles voice coach Raven Kane Campbell.

These days he splits his time between Nashville, Texas, and Colorado. Tyller is currently touring in support of his new album “Long Ride Home” produced by Grammy award winner Lloyd Maines. Tyller Has been honored to have opened for the likes of John Anderson, Juice Newton, Cole Swindell, Tyler Farr, King Billy and has shared the stage with Legendary Cowboy Poet Waddie Mitchell.
