Chesterfield Amphitheater is proud to host the Roots & Boots Tour featuring three country legends Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw and Collin Raye. The artists will be coming to the ChAmp on Saturday, July 7, 2018 at 7 pm.
Three country legends, SAMMY KERSHAW, AARON TIPPIN, and COLLIN RAYE, join forces to present an evening filled with stories and songs as they get back to the roots of their music. They have combined for 40 top ten smash hits and 25 million albums sold! With hits that include Kershaw's "Queen Of My Double Wide Trailer," "She Don't Know She's Beautiful," and "Third Rate Romance," Tippin's "You've Got To Stand For Something," "There Ain't Nothin' Wrong With The Radio," and "Kiss This," and Raye's "Love, Me," "In This Life," and "That's My Story."
Aaron Tippin has crusaded for the working man and woman since he ripped country music wide open with his uncompromising single “You’ve Got to Stand for Something.” His voice continued to ring loud and clear with such hits as “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way”, “There Ain’t Nothin’ Wrong with The Radio”, That’s as Close as I’ll Get to Loving You,” “My Blue Angel” and “Kiss This”. Five of his albums are certified “Gold” and a sixth CD—Read Between the Lines—stands at the “Platinum” level. Tippin’s honest lyrics and direct, impassioned vocals have built a large and devoted audience.
In the course of breaking into the ranks of stardom in country music, Sammy Kershaw has made contributions to more than just the charts. His platinum albums were propelled into the records books by hits such as “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful,” “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore,” “National Working Woman’s Holiday,” “Love of My Life,” “Cadillac Style,” “Don’t Go Near the Water,” “Haunted Heart,” … and many other milestones.
Collin Raye is nothing if not passionate. His soulful delivery has set country standards in such searing ballads as “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” “Not That Different” and “If I were you”. Always an energizing showman, he has also blazed through such vivid rockers as “My Kind of Girl,” “That’s My Story,” “I Can Still Feel You” and “I Want You Bad.” With 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10-time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time.
Opener will be The Big Rigs!
The Big Rigs started in the upstairs of a tiny bar in St. Louis, MO. What began as a gig at a birthday party has blossomed into something else altogether. Cover tunes eventually evolved into what would become their own original sound. A sound based heavily on a 3 part vocal harmony and a roots country vibe. "Whiskey and Water", their first original effort, was released in July 2016. The Big Rigs follow up "The Great Divide" is due out Summer 2018.
