The Lucky Cowboy - biography

Who is that crazy cowboy?

Lucky was born at a very young age in the "Land of Lincoln."  Alton, Illinois, to be exact, is where old Lucky is from. Alton is famous for its celebrities of stage and screen. Remember Robert Wadlow, the tallest man in the world? How about TV star Clint Walker of "Cheyenne" and Butch Calvey the singer? Alton is also where one of the famous Lincoln/Douglas debates took place, and where Bluff City Beer was made. It seems Lucky was just destined to be a famous person.

In his early years, Lucky appeared at the Madison Avenue Corral in Alton as a live DJ for WOKZ radio. He's been a trapeze artist, a motorcycle stunt rider, and even hosted his own carnival. He was a National Indian Chief for the Boy Scouts of America and managed a scout camp. Lucky spent some time in Minnesota where he still has many country fans.

Nowadays, old Lucky is based in Nashville, TN, Music City USA. Here he founded Lucky Cowboy Productions. You might catch him anywhere in Nashville, or somewhere in the rest of the USA promoting country music. He's even been on the Today Show! But you'll always find him wearing his famous forty gallon orange cowboy hat - you can't miss him wherever he goes.

Lucky's favorite song is "I Feel Lucky." His handprints are on the WE Fest "Walk of Fame," and there's even a ceramic bobblehead doll of Lucky. Yep, you can bet old Lucky will continue to be a star in his own right.

Watch out for Lucky as you might just get "Lucky!" Yeeeeeeeeehaw!!! Let's Party Like A Cowboy! LUCKY COWBOY Since 1992

“PARTY CROWD” KENNY CHESNEY TOPS 12 A.M. WITH TAYLOR SWIFT, JOE WALSH
NASHVILLE, TENN March 27, 2015 - Kenny Chesney launched his The Big Revival Tour at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena Thursday night with a three-hour song circus complete with a bevy of special guests before a sold out crowd that included his mom who wanted to see him on his birthday. He’ll headline the venue again on Friday. Chesney turned 47 on Thursday and by the end of the night, Eagles guitar player Joe Walsh was on stage leading the crowd in a version of Happy Birthday before handing Chesney a large trophy with the greeting etched in the metal.

Kenny Chesney and Taylor Swift perform onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off for a 55 show run through August. The high-energy opening night included 2½ hours of music, including five songs from his #1 The Big Revival, surprise guests and a leaner, cleaner stage and 2.3 million pixel screen that gave the sold out house the best view theyve ever had of the 8-time Entertainer of the Year at the Bridgestone Arena on March 26, 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee. Openers were Jake Owen and Chase Rice.

KENNY CHESNEY'S BIG REVIVAL SHAKES UP NASHVILLE
NASHVILLE, TENN March 27, 2015 - “Feel the vibration of the No Shoes Nation,” warned an old New Orleans street preacher in the opening video of Kenny Chesney’s show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville last night (March 26).


Kenny Chesney performs onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off for a 55 show run through August. The high-energy opening night included 2½ hours of music, including five songs from his #1 The Big Revival, surprise guests and a leaner, cleaner stage and 2.3 million pixel screen that gave the sold out house the best view theyve ever had of the 8-time Entertainer of the Year at the Bridgestone Arena on March 26, 2015 in Nashville, Tennessee.

The vibration that ensued was more like an earthquake as Chesney celebrated the opening night of his tour—and his birthday—with a three-hour, sold-out show that included surprise guests Joe Walsh, Taylor Swift, Uncle Kracker, David Lee Murphy, and Grace Potter. It was the first of a two-night run at the arena.


Kenny Chesney gives Taylor Swift a kiss onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off in Nashville, Tennessee March 26, 2015
“To say I missed you guys is an understatement,” said the performer who had taken a break from the road since 2013.

Back with the aptly named The Big Revival Tour, Chesney was a sleeveless-shirted preacher sprinting across the stage under a spinning disco ball, telling his congregation to live in the moment God gave them. It’s that offering of escapism—and too many hits to count—that make him the entertainer of every year. Just like his song “Reality” advises, “everybody needs to break free from reality.”


Uncle Kracker and Kenny Chesney perform onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off.
His “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems” attitude permeated, singing the worry-free hits “Beer in Mexico,” “Keg in the Closet” and “Summertime.” Even when he offered the moody “Somewhere With You,” he rebounded with upbeat “I Go Back.”

As the night went own, Chesney went further back in his catalog, leading singalongs of early career hits “There Goes My Life,” “How Forever Feels” and “Never Wanted Nothing More.” Murphy appeared to offer the songs he made famous, “Dust On The Bottle” and “Party Crowd.” “I don’t usually drink this, but when I do it’s going to be a long night,” Chesney told the crowd, taking a swig from a large, white cup.

“The party is not going to stop,” Chesney told fans at about the two-hour mark. “There’s going to be a lot of people a little late to work tomorrow and they’re going to say, ‘We went out last night,’” he said before he played his hit “Out Last Night.”


Kenny Chesney and Grace Potter perform onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off.
Potter joined him for their current hit “Wild Child” as well as “You And Tequila.” Uncle Kracker came out for “When The Sun Goes Down.”


Eagles' Joe Walsh led the crowd in “Happy Birthday” and performed four other songs, closing out the concert with “All Night Long.”

By the end of the show, everyone wanted to move to No Shoes Nation, but were forced back to reality in the chilly night. Chesney’s Sony Music Nashville labelmates Jake Owen and Chase Rice opened with strong performances.


Musical artist Jake Owen performs onstage during Kenny Chesney's The Big Revival 2015 Tour kick-off.
Jake Owen’s beach scene set included palm trees—an inviting backdrop as he reminded how many hits he’s tallied, including “Alone With You,” “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You,” “Days of Gold,” “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” “The One That Got Away” and a spotlight solo of “What We Ain’t Got.”

The band continued to play on stage past midnight as Chesney graciously shook hands with audience members and signed autographs as fans filed out of the arena. The tour continues for an encore tonight in Nashville, before hitting cities across the country this summer.

"A GUY WALKS INTO A BAR" _Tyler Farr. HEY! IT'S LUCKY COWBOY.
The joke's on me and it ain't funny. Everybody but me could see the punch line coming a mile away. I've heard it so many times I can tell it to the T. Believe me I could sell it all day. It goes......

A guy walks into a bar, orders a drink
Sees a girl that catches his eye
Asks her if she wants another
They fall for each other and end up lovers
They laugh, cry, hold on tight, make it work for a little while
Then one night her taillights fade out into the dark
And a guy walks into a bar..


Lucky Cowboy rides into Westmoreland, Tennessee for Mystery Cowboys Dan's "Birthday Bash" at Sugar Grove Tavern.

NASHVILLE, TENN March 16, 2015 - During a press conference held March 13 at Nashville’s Hard Rock Cafe, The Country Music Association’s CEO Sarah Trahern revealed several enhancements to the upcoming CMA Music Festival for 2015.

The average length of stay for attendees was up to 5.6 days in 2014, vs. 5.2 days in 2013.

“Three months from today, we will be in the middle of CMA Music Festival,” said Trahern. “It will be our 15th Music Fest downtown. The event celebrates the undeniable between the artists and their fans, and this year looks to be better than ever.”

Tickets for the nightly concerts at LP Field SOLD OUT in November, months before the talent lineup was revealed. However, there are abundant opportunities for music fans to hear new music from their favorite artists, with the CMA Music Festival boasting 11 music stages, including seven stages that will offer free music around downtown Nashville.

"As much as I lean country, I can't ignore when somebody like Brooke puts together a performance that solid," Shelton said. "To me she won that knockout." You can find Kelsie's version of "Tim McGraw" on iTunes. The knockouts continue at 8 p.m. Tuesday night on "The Voice."

She said it was a "celebration tour" after finishing up her two-year Las Vegas residency. "I feel like I'm ready to hang my hat up in that regard. I just really want to go out with a bang."

Twain promised that the show in Vegas was designed specifically for that show and she says this new tour will be custom-made. "it's going to be a ... rocking show." It'll start in Seattle in June and includes 48 cities.

"I should just do 50 because I'm 50 this year," joked Twain, whose birthday is Aug. 28. It's called the Rock This Country tour, she says, "but it's the after-party tour." Twain also said she's working on new music for an album, but is focusing on getting on the road first. Tickets go on sale to the general public on March 10 or March 13, depending on the city—see Shania Twain’s website for details. www.shaniatwain.com

TAYLOR SWIFT SPOTTED WITH CALVIN HARRIS AT KENNY CHESNEY CONCERT NASHVILLE

NASHVILLE, TENN March 28, 2015 - Are Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris coming out as a couple? The "Style" singer, 25, and the "Blame" producer, 31, attended Kenny Chesney's concert in Nashville Thursday. According to a source, they were "getting snuggly" during the show. Neither Swift nor Harris has confirmed the romance rumors.

That being said, pictures show Harris standing behind Swift with his arms wrapped around her waist, and an eyewitness tells E! News, "They were dancing to a lot of songs! 'There Goes My Life,' 'I Go Back,' it was a lot of songs," adding, "I didn't see them kissing but his arms were around her. They sure were cute together! They both were dancing, looked like they were having a great time."

Two concertgoers also tweeted they they saw the musicians "holding hands" while Chesney performed. When Swift joined Chesney on stage to sing "Big Star," Harris cheered for the two.

Thursday's outing came just hours after pictures surfaced of the two shopping at Whole Foods in Nashville on Wednesday (in matching outfits). Earlier this month, Swift attended one of Harris' concerts in Las Vegas—and that was after the EDM artist told Capital FM that she "looks lovely" but is not his "type." Perhaps Harris is the "astonishing human" Swift was hoping to meet! Stay Tuned!

COUNTRY LEGEND RONNIE MCDOWELL PLANS CONCERT SERIES
AT GALLATIN'S HISTORIC PALACE THEATRE BEGINNING APRIL 11


RONNIE MCDOWELL CONCERT SERIES
GALLATIN, TENN March 20, 2015 - Gallatin's historic downtown square will soon play host to country music legends for a set of shows that organizers say will attract fans near and far. After performing regularly at venues in Portland for about two years, Ronnie McDowell, 64, will move his shows to Gallatin's historic Palace Theatre beginning April 11. The show, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature Billy Joe Royal, best known for his 1965 hit "Down in the Boondocks."

"I play these little theaters all the time, and so when I looked at the Palace, saw the stage and the seating arrangement I just thought it would be the perfect place for this," McDowell said. "We're going to try to do this every month, or every other month, and bring in a different artist in with me, so I'll be kind of like the host."

Among multiple Top 10 hits, McDowell is perhaps best known for his self-pinned song "The King is Gone," which he wrote following the death of Elvis Presley in 1977. Since then, the singer's success has led to a large following of nationwide fan clubs with more than 3,000 members, many of whom travel from out of state to see him perform live.

The second show planned at the Palace, set for May 30, will be "Ronnie McDowell's Tribute to the King," which will feature Elvis Presley's music. The show will include Presley's former drummer, D.J. Fontana, and the Stamps Quartet. Tickets For Show: $30 to $40, can be purchased by calling Greater Gallatin's office at 615-452-5692 or by calling 615-325-4783. www.mainstreetgallatin.com/the_palace_theatre

LOVE AND THEFT TO PLAY RIVERS & SPIRES
FESTIVAL - CLARKSVILLE, TN

Love And Theft performs on Friday April 17 at 9pm. Rivers & Spires Festival Public Square - Clarksville, Tennessee.
NASHVILLE, TENN March 22, 2015 - It has been an exciting year for ACM/CMA/CMT-nominated country duo, Love And Theft. They were nominated for Vocal Duo of The Year for the third consecutive year at the 2014 CMA awards, and in February of this year they are set to release their boundary-pushing new album, Whiskey On My Breath.

Having already established themselves as one of country's hottest young acts with such memorable hits as the #1 country smash "Angel Eyes" and the Top 10 hit "Runaway," and their widely acclaimed albums World Wide Open and Love and Theft, Stephen Barker-Liles and Eric Gunderson - the singer-songwriter-guitarists-frontmen of Love and Theft - set out to make an album of meaningful songs and honest performances for their third record.

Although several of the songs on the album are a departure in many respects, Whiskey On My Breath won't come as that much of a surprise to Love and Theft's longtime fans, who'll recognize the commitment to high-energy performances and emotionally forthright song craft that's been the foundation of Love and Theft's music from the start.

WHAT! STEVEN TYLER'S AEROSMITH FRONTMAN GOES COUNTRY?
Is Aerosmith's Frontman Making Music in Nashville?

NASHVILLE, TENN March 17, 2015 He and Carrie Underwood teamed up for an episode of CMT Crossroads in 2012. In November, he made a cameo appearance with Underwood and Brad Paisley as they hosted the 2014 CMA Awards in Nashville. And he later appeared with Paisley on the annual CMA Country Christmas special on ABC.

So it’s not like his country album is a well-kept secret. He has talked, albeit in bits and pieces, about the upcoming project, and this is what we’ve learned.

1. His ties to country are strong. At the CMT Crossroads taping, Tyler told CMT’s Cody Alan, “That’s what I cut my teeth on — the Everly Brothers. I just love it. I love the words. I love the inflections. It’s just great.”

2. He’s done some country work recently. Tyler just collaborated with Jana Kramer on “Bullet,” which will be featured on her next album.

3. He is expected to sign with Big Machine Label Group within the next few weeks, according to Billboard, and is already working on the music.

4. Reports are that the music could be ready by the summer. Or by November. Either way, it will be worth the wait.

5. He reportedly moved to Nashville in January, which seems to corroborate the theories best of all.

“TWO OF A KIND, WORKIN' ON A FULL HOUSE”

GARTH IN BUFFALO, NY
NASHVILLE, TENN March 10, 2015 - Garth Brooks plays the six shows at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, NY last week. One guy who had more fun than the fans. That’d be Brooks himself. The most successful country artist of all time proved himself to be one of the most charismatic performers of all time, as well.


Like a kid who woke up one morning to discover that he’d have the next week off of school because of snow, Brooks arrived on stage with a massive grin on his face, and spent the next few hours trying to wipe it off.

Brooks has not performed in Buffalo since 1998. In fact, he hasn’t really performed at all since that time because of a self-imposed hiatus – supposedly broken at the urging of his daughter, who convinced Dad to get back to doing what he does best once she had graduated high school. The current tour, behind the “Man Against Machine” album, has already been successful enough, in terms of buzz and tickets sold, to prove that Brooks has retained full sway over his audience, despite the lengthy absence.

Brooks’ job, and it’s one he takes seriously, is to provide a few hours of blessed forgetfulness to his followers, by acting as event coordinator for a big ol’ party. He made it plain early on during the shows that he wouldn’t be asking his fans to endure a full rendering of his latest album.


“I go to shows because I wanna hear the old stuff!” he screamed at one point, and then tore through a set that covered all of his hits, and even made time for a midshow duet with, and a brief set from, his wife, Trisha Yearwood.
