Tickets:  $35, $45, $55

The highly abbreviated Tritt timeline has the young Georgian incorporating lifelong influences in Southern Rock, blues and gospel into his country during a honky-tonk apprenticeship that led him to Warner Bros.  His 1990 debut Country Club and its succession of hits put him in the vanguard of the genre's early '90s boom.  At the same time, his conspicuous lack of a cowboy hat and musical aggressiveness set him apart.  The next eight albums and scores of hit singles led him to amass more than 25 million in career album sales, two Grammys, three CMA Awards and a devoted fan base that filled venues coast-to-coast.

An Evening with Jeanne Robertson
Date(s): Oct 17, 2015
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $20, $25, $27

Jeanne Robertson reached her 6'2" stature at age thirteen.  Perhaps it was an indication of a future speaking career that would soar to great heights, including being crowned Miss North Carolina in 1963.  After receiving her degree at Auburn University and teaching physical education in high school and college, Jeanne entered into professional speaking full time and the result was nothing short of comedic gold.  Jeanne has produced seven humor DVDs and CDs and written three books on humor which illustrate her comedic philosophy.  She can also be heard on SiriusXM Satellite Radio's Family Comedy and Blue Collar Comedy channels.  While Jeanne enjoys making people laugh, she views the role of a humorist as more than eliciting laughter.  As audiences are holding their sides and wiping tears from their faces, she makes her point clear: "It ain't over 'til the tall lady speaks."

Josh Turner in Concert
Date(s): Oct 23, 2015
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $45, $50, $55

As a family man, a philanthropist, a devoted Christian, and a passionate sports fan, you might say Josh Turner's commitments run as deep as his voice.  Of course, he's also a double-platinum-selling singer, songwriter and disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry.  All of those layers construct Josh's knockout style of bluegrass-influenced barnburners, lonesome laments, and the slow and steady love ballads on which Josh's trademark baritone excels.  With such number one hits as "Why Don't We Just Dance" and "All Over Me", Josh's range exhibits, in both his voice and his songwriting, creative maturity well beyond that of a young, country boy telling stories through his music, lyrics and performance.
