Big & Rich to headline Round-Up &
Happy Canyon Concert
PENDLETON, Ore. – The award-winning country duo Big & Rich will be the main act of the Pendleton Round-Up & Happy Canyon concert on Sept. 6. Named new country duo of 2004 byBillboard magazine, Big Kenny and John Rich have been packing houses and producing hits for the decade that followed. Tickets will go on sale March 27.
"Big & Rich continues our tradition of bringing excellent artists to perform in Pendleton," Round-Up President Tim Hawkins said. "The energy they bring to the stage will be a great way to kick-off Round-Up Week, 2014. Tickets are sure to go fast for this duo, and all the other events that come the second full week of September."
Happy Canyon President Jason Hill agrees.
"Our group has worked hard to try and bring some top flight talent in for this show, and this year is no exception," Hill said. "I’m excited for this concert and I know Round-Up and Happy Canyon directors hope fans across the region feel the same way."
Big Kenny and John Rich have made their marks in country music as singers and songwriters. Perhaps best known for their hit "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," the duo has influenced country music not just with their own hits, but with those recorded by other artists.
Opening our Kick-off concert this year is Old Dominion. The band may not yet have a household name, but its members are behind many of the songs you hear in country music today. During the past 10 years of writing and honing their sound as a band, a number of their songs have been recorded and released by an impressive list that includes The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young, and Craig Morgan. And while it has been nice to experience radio success as song writers, the band has their scope unwaveringly aimed at delivering their music personally to the people.
Tickets for the concert will go on sale Thursday, March 27 at 8:30 a.m. at the Pendleton Round-Up and Happy Canyon office at 1114 SW Court Ave. Tickets will also be available for purchase online and by telephone at 541-276-2553 or 800-457-6336.
