ZZ TOP’s music is always instantly recognizable, eminently powerful, profoundly soulful and 100% Texas American. They have sold millions of records, have been officially designated as Heroes of The State of Texas, have been referenced in countless cartoons and sitcoms and are true rock icons but, against all odds, they’re really just doing what they’ve always done. They’re real and they’re surreal and they’re ZZ TOP.

Melissa Etheridge will feature her new One Way Out album on August 2, 2022 at Foellinger Theatre.
Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Melissa Etheridge has remained one of America's favorite female singers-songwriters for more than three decades.
She stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, then delivered such memorable originals as "Bring Me Some Water," "No Souvenirs" and "Ain't it Heavy," leading to the massive hits, "I'm the Only One" and "Come to My Window," followed by the hit single, "I Want to Come Over."
Early in her career she acknowledged her sexual orientation when it was considered less than prudent to do so. In 2004, after being diagnosed with breast cancer and losing her hair from chemotherapy, Etheridge appeared on the 2005 Grammy® telecast to sing "Piece of My Heart" in tribute to Janis Joplin. Eventually she won her health challenge and gave hope to many women afflicted with the disease.
As a performer and songwriter, Etheridge continues to captivate and inspire audiences across the country with her signature rasp and substantial guitar chops combines with her endless tenacity.

In a genre defined by the credo “three chords and the truth,” Brett Eldredge is about to set a new bar with his forthcoming album, Songs About You, due June 17. Candid in its approach and backed by an uncluttered, minimalistic soundscape, each of the 12 co-written songs finds the Warner Music Nashville artist getting raw and unfiltered in a way rarely attempted in country music – or anywhere else.
The LP shines a light on themes like fear and desire, a public struggle with anxiety and his newfound appreciation for self-acceptance. And yet, despite the understated arrangements and live horns, the album’s defining characteristic is still Eldredge’s cavernous, signature vocal. The title track and single “Songs About You” was the most added song at radio upon release and along with previously released tracks “Holy Water” and “Want That Back,” gives fans a taste of what’s to come from the new album.
Eldredge has been engaged in one of country’s most transformative evolutions since the 2020 release of his critically acclaimed fourth studio record, Sunday Drive, when he began consciously pushing beyond clever, rom-com country anthems. With help from GRAMMY-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, Eldredge brought the album to life by leaning into vulnerability and pulling inspiration from his own personal experiences.
He released the brand-new holiday album, Mr. Christmas, in 2021 following his highly celebrated debut Christmas album, Glow. In 2016, the project inspired a single live show in Nashville, which has now grown into the annual Glow LIVE holiday tour, hitting major cities across the country. With seven country radio No. 1’s, nine Gold and Platinum-certified singles, two Gold-certified albums and multiple CMA, ACM and CMT Music nominations and wins, the critically acclaimed entertainer regularly fills arenas nationwide with his powerhouse vocals and electrifying live performances.
