AFTER HOURS Concert Series at The Meadow Event Park Adds Shows To Summer Schedule

EventMakers - USA announced two new shows with Brantley Gilbert with special guest Niko Moon on August 21st and Melissa Etheridge with special guest Larkin Poe on August 25th as part of the After Hours Concert Series at The Meadow Event Park.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 23, 2021, at 10:00 AM. A limited number of Early Bird General Admission tickets will be available from April 23-29.

As a country artist with back-to-back platinum albums and a grassroots following millions strong, Brantley Gilbert's music has been shared, covered and adopted as the soundtrack to Saturday night and Sunday morning by audiences around the world. Gilbert has clearly struck a nerve.

Seven No. 1 hits punctuate his career: "Country Must be Country Wide," "You Don't Know Her Like I Do," CMA Awards Song of the Year nominee "Red Dirt Anthem," "My Kinda Party," "Bottoms Up," "One Hell of an Amen," and "What Happens In A Small Town," featuring Lindsay Ell.

The Georgia native who started as the defiant life-of-the-party can still go 'til sunrise, but he's also emerged as something far greater: the leader of a massive tribe of hard-working, fun-loving believers for whom electric guitar-shredding, rapping, and twang can go hand-in-hand-in-hand.

Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Melissa Etheridge has remained one of America's favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't It Heavy," for which she won a Grammy in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am (1993), which featured the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, which was distinguished by the hit single, "I Want to Come Over."

The 2021 After Hours Concerts at Meadow Event Park season is expected to include at least 30 shows, over 20 of which have already been announced.
