Last year, Parmalee dominated the country radio charts with the multi-week #1, GOLD-selling single “Carolina” which made history in 2013 as the longest #1 trek by a vocal duo or group in the Billboard Country Airplay chart’s 24-year history. “Carolina” was also voted #1 by fans on SiriusXM The Highway’s “Hot 30 LIVE” countdown.

Eric Paslay

Eric Paslay

Eric Paslay is ready to rock your "Friday Night" on Friday, February 6th at the Sioux Falls District. Tickets are on sale and flying out the door, with a range from $17-27 (GA, VIP balcony respectively). Doors open at 7 p.m. (VIP) or 8 p.m. (GA) with music at 9 p.m.!

He's also at Mill City Nights on Saturday, February 7th along with Drew Baldridge and Shalo Lee. Tickets range from $22 to $45. (Note this is an 18+ only show!). Doors at 8 p.m., music at 9 p.m.!

“Friday Night”, Paslay’s first No. 1 single as an artist, serves as an inviting preview to his EMI Records Nashville debut album. The vibrant collection of songs cover a wide expanse of emotional territory from the aching ballad “She Don’t Love You”, Paslay’s latest single, to his clever up tempo, Top 10 hit “Song About A Girl” and the poignant, uplifting “Deep As It Is Wide.” Working with producers Marshall Altman, Daniel Hill and Billy Lynn, Paslay has created a colorful sonic landscape. “Life isn’t always the same heartbeat so I don’t want to have an album of songs at the same tempo,” Paslay says of the musical and lyrical diversity displayed on his eponymous debut. “Every song has a shimmer of everyone’s life in it from the memories of falling in love to living with someone for the rest of your life and knowing that there’s something at the end of the tunnel to live for. Some of it is not too deep and some of it is.”

Therein lies Paslay’s charm. He is a deep thinker and soulful philosopher capable of shooting a lyric straight into your heart and making you catch your breath, but he is also witty, playful and equally skilled at getting the party started. He is the guy other men want to have a beer with and all the girls want to take home for Sunday dinner. His engaging, enigmatic personality shines through in all his songs from “Less Than Whole,” a powerful treatise on forgiveness and redemption that he penned with Big Kenny to the sultry, sexy romp “Good With Wine,” a great date song.

Paslay creates music that becomes part of the soundtrack of people’s lives, and in doing so he has helped shaped the sound of today’s country radio. Owen’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night,” which Paslay wrote with Dylan Altman and Terry Sawchuk, was named ASCAP’s 2012 Country Song of the Year. The Eli Young Band’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” written by Paslay and Will Hoge, was nominated for a 2013 GRAMMY for Best Country Song and CMA Song Of The Year in 2012. He also co-wrote Love and Theft’s No. 1 hit “Angel Eyes,” as well as Rascal Flatt’s new single “Rewind.” He has also penned tunes for many other artists among them Amy Grant, Donny & Marie Osmond and Lady Antebellum. His distinctive voice has also earned him some pretty substantial fans. Dionne Warwick and Kenny Rogers have sought him out to record duets, and Amy Grant recruited Paslay to join her and Sheryl Crow when she covered Paslay’s “Deep As It Is Wide” on her latest album.

Eric Paslay definitely knows how to craft a hit song. Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love and Theft and the Eli Young Band have all scored No. 1 singles thanks to Paslay’s songwriting prowess, but fans who have seen him on stage will testify there is so much more to the tall, Texas redhead than his excellent songwriting chops. Paslay is a charismatic performer and a potent vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. As his debut album’s lead single “Friday Night” reached the No. 1 spot, Paslay has arrived as an artist in his own right.

Kip Moore

Kip Moore

Kip Moore returns to the Sioux Falls District on Thursday, February 12th! Tickets are on sale now and range from $30 (GA) to $40 (VIP balcony) or $42 (day-of). These are available via the District website and at the District's Woodfire Grill. This is an all ages show! VIP doors open at 7 pm., GA at 8 p.m., with music at 9 p.m.!

Singer-songwriter Kip Moore explored his own experiences of growing up in a small Georgia town and working diligently for years to achieve his musical dreams to create his MCA Nashville debut album, Up All Night. The album poetically captures those unforgettable coming-of-age moments, especially for those longing for a life beyond a small town's borders, as well as the roller coaster of love and heartbreak at any age. He delivers these honest and deeply personal lyrics with a gravelly voice weathered by life's detours and disappointments and strengthened by his dreams and unyielding determination.

Up All Night, which includes the hit "Somethin' 'Bout a Truck," is infused with relentless intensity, both of passion and frustration, that is earning rave reviews from critics.

Martina McBride

Martina McBride

Martina McBride brings the ‘Everlasting’ Tour to the Swiftel Center in Brookings on November 21, 2014! Tickets are on sale, ranging from $40-85 and going out the door quickly. Tickets can be purchased online via, or at the Swiftel Box Office. NOTE: This show has been rescheduled to February 13, 2015.

Jenny Hammrich, Director of Sales and Marketing says, “We think the rescheduled date is perfect timing to bring your Valentine to this amazing show. Martina is backed by an 11-piece band — including trumpet, tenor sax, bari sax and trombone and a trio of back-up singers, so to me it’s going to be a live once in lifetime experience. What a great night to share with your Valentine!”

Martina's live show brings the iconic sounds of the '50s and '60s from her 'Everlasting' album alive.

“We’ve worked hard to put together a show that is visually entertaining as well as very rich musically,” shares Martina. “There's so much for the audience to see and experience."

“It's familiar music coming from the one of the most recognizable voices of any genre, yet with a stage plot unlike anything in McBride's illustrious 22-year career” (Rolling Stone Country).

The four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year puts her own spin on some of her favorite R&B and soul classics including the Supremes' "Come See About Me," Van Morrison's "Wild Night" and Otis Redding's "I've Been Loving You Too Long” but also performs fan favorites like “A Broken Wing,” “Love's The Only House,” “This One's For The Girls,” “Independence Day,” and “In My Daughter's Eyes.”

In regards to the rescheduled show: Purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled performance or can be refunded at the point of purchase. For questions, please contact the Swiftel Center Box Office at 605-692-7539.

Aaron Watson

Aaron Watson

Aaron Watson is at The District on Thursday, March 5th! This is an all ages show, with doors opening at 8 p.m., the show at 9 p.m. Tickets are on sale now via The District's Woodfire Grill or online. Cost is $12 in advance or $17 at the door, with all tickets standing general admission. 

Aaron Watson has been through a lot in his twelve-year career: eleven albums, the birth of four children, countless hours on the road and many more still spent toiling away at his guitar, writing songs with Jesus on one shoulder and the ghost of Waylon Jennings on the other, making the country tunes he was born to play. But a year ago, the music nearly stopped for this lone star legend from Amarillo, Texas. Watson and his wife lost their newest daughter, Julia Grace, just shortly after her birth. And this man, who lives and breathes his craft, fell silent.

“I thought the last thing I want to do is make music, to get up there and sing,” Watson says, his Texas accent strong and smooth as molasses. “So I said, ‘God, I don’t think I can do this. If music is what you need me to do, then I need some help. Because I can’t write a song to save my life.’ And over the next month I wrote a record like it was no big deal – and I think it’s my best one yet.”

The resulting album is titled Real Good Time, and it’s testament to the power of music to lift us out from our lowest moments and bring joy and salvation though the wail of the fiddle, twang of a steel guitar or note of Watson’s rich voice. He’d give all the credit to God, but it’s also the result of a long career inspired by the greats of country music – George Strait, Chris Ledoux, Willie Nelson, Jennings. His music has formed into a unique sound that is at once both purely new, and representative of a grand, southern tradition. Because, as Watson points out, “country music, real country music, is cool. It’s the coolest there is.”

Jerrod Niemann

Jerrod Niemann

Country returns to the Sioux Falls District on Sunday, March 15th with Jerrod Niemann and Friends! Tickets are on sale via the District Woodfire Grill or online. Cost is $20 for advance general admission or $30 for VIP, with day-of tickets at $25. VIP doors open at 6 p.m., GA at 7 p.m., with showtime at 8 p.m.!

On High Noon, Niemann continues to pursue the innovative sonic approach that has defined his identity in today’s country music, while bearing down even harder on the rock-solid songwriting that first brought him to Nashville’s attention. The immediate response to the album’s debut single, “Drink to That All Night,” proves that Niemann’s distinctive style still hits the mark. “My biggest obstacle,” he says, “was to make sure this sounded different from everything else out there right now.”

Jerrod Niemann exploded onto the scene with his chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury. The album, on Sea Gayle/Arista Nashville records, included the Number One smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the follow-up Top 5 single, “What Do You Want.” Niemann—who has also written songs for and with such artists as Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, and Lee Brice—returned in 2012 with the acclaimed, musically adventurous release, Free the Music. All the while, he’s continued playing 200 shows a year on the road, year in and year out.

Alan Jackson

Alan Jackson

Country superstar Alan Jackson brings his 25th Anniversary "Keepin It Country" tour to the Swiftel Center in Brookings, SD on May 2, 2015! Tickets are on sale now at the Swiftel Center Box Office, charge by phone at 800-745-3000 or online at (DL: Joining Jackson on the tour, is rising artist Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark!

As always, US95 is your country concert connection -- stay tuned for chances to win tickets!

Alan Jackson’s 25th Anniversary KEEPIN’ IT COUNTRY TOUR will be a memorable celebration for his longtime fans as well as legions of new fans who are discovering his music through the many songs that have withstood the test of time and influenced many new artists of today like the tour’s special guests Jon Pardi and Brandy Clark. Fans will hear the songs they love from the man who wrote them and made them famous including his massive debut hit, “Here In The Real World” to “Chattahoochee,” “Drive,” “Gone Country,” the summertime party-anthems “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere” and “Good Time,” and many, many more.

Jackson’s tour is an extension of the already year-long 25th anniversary celebration which kicked off this summer with the opening of his exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, Alan Jackson: 25 Years of Keepin’ It Country, which will run through March 2015. This month the multi-platinum selling Grammy winner is also playing two record-breaking sold out shows at the Country Music Hall of Fame’s CMA Theater making him the first simultaneous artist-in-residence and major museum exhibit subject.

Alan Jackson has been steadfast in his love for traditional music while enjoying major chart success. Since signing his record deal in June 1989, he has sold nearly 60 million albums worldwide and ranks as one of the 10 best-selling country artists of all-time. He has released more than 60 singles—registering 50 Top Ten hits and 35 #1s (including 26 Billboard #1s). He has earned more than 150 music industry awards—including 18 Academy of Country Music Awards, 16 Country Music Association Awards, a pair of Grammys and ASCAP’s Founders and Golden Note Awards. He is a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry.

Alan Jackson is one of the most successful and respected singer-songwriters in music. He is in the elite company of Paul McCartney and John Lennon among songwriters who’ve written more than 20 songs that they’ve recorded and taken to the top of the charts. Jackson is one of the best-selling artists since the inception of SoundScan, ranking alongside the likes of Eminem and Metallica.

California native and Capitol Records rising country star Jon Pardi released his debut album, Write You A Song, on Jan. 14, 2014. The release features his Gold-certified Top 10 tune “Up All Night,” along with hits “What I Can’t Put Down,” “Missin’ You Crazy” and his brand new “When I’ve Been Drinkin.’” Pardi has a laid back, fun-loving approach towards life and it comes through in his music and his raucous live show. His charisma and authenticity strike a chord with county audiences, as he wins over fans one-by-one and show-by-show.

Pardi’s sound is undeniably country — paying homage to some of his musical heroes such as Dwight Yoakam, George Strait and Alan Jackson. Discovering his ability for performance back at the tender age of three when he sang ALABAMA, Alan Jackson and Hank Williams, Jr. karaoke with his grandmother, Pardi has since shared the stage with Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church and many more of today’s hottest country artists.

Brandy Clark’s debut album, 12 Stories, was named the best album of 2013 in any genre by New York Magazine’s Jody Rosen, New York Post’s Michaelangelo Matos, NPR’s Ann Powers, Slate, and Boston Globe’s Sara Rodman. The album was the No. 2 record for Fresh Air’s Ken Tucker and a top 10 choice for Los Angeles Times’ Randall Roberts and The New Yorker’s Sasha Frere-Jones, among many others. She earned two 2014 CMA nominations (one for New Artist of the Year, the other for Song of the Year for co-writing Kacey Musgraves’ hit “Follow Your Arrow” with Musgraves and Shane McAnally), won the 2014 Music Row Breakthrough Artist Award, and toured with Eric Church and Jennifer Nettles. She also opened for Loretta Lynn at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium. When reviewing 12 Stories, Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times wrote, “This is the country debut of the year.” Rolling Stone’s Will Hermes noted, “Her debut is all airtight craftsmanship, sly wit and precise detailing that treats mainstream style like artisanal fast food.” New York Magazine’s Rosen remarked, “She’s a brisk, vivid, witty storyteller; her tunes unfold in old-fashioned weepers and chugging honkytonk, with fiddles, pedal steel, and vocal harmonies driving home the punch lines and pathos,” while NPR’s Powers called her “A storyteller of the highest caliber.” Hitfix’s Melinda Newman wrote that Clark was “the best new artist country radio isn’t playing” and that 12 Stories “made almost every music critics’ best of 2013 list for its heart, wit, smart wordplay, and Clark’s expressive vocals.”

Clark was nominated for her first GRAMMY Award earlier this year for Best Country Song for “Mama’s Broken Heart,” (a song she co-wrote with McAnally and Musgraves) which Miranda Lambert took to No. 1. That song also earned Clark her first CMA and ACM nominations, both for Song of the Year. She also wrote The Band Perry’s No. 1 hit “Better Dig Two” with McAnally and Trevor Rosen. Other artists to record her songs include Sheryl Crow, Reba McEntire, Kacey Musgraves, LeAnn Rimes, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, Gretchen Wilson, and more. For more information visit

The Big Revival Tour

The Big Revival Tour

Kenny Chesney brings The Big Revival Tour to the Denny Sanford Premier Center on June 18, 2015, along with Jake Owen and Chase Rice! Ticket prices and on-sale date to be announced

"This has been an amazing year," the man The Wall Street Journal deemed "The King of the Road" says, "in terms of the music we made, the songs written, the adventures had and especially what's gone into this tour! So many people have contributed, and I thought by starting off where so many of them live, they can see what we've built before I take it out on the road!"

For Chesney, the Music City play also happens to fall on his birthday. Not that he was planning on making his road show - considered by many to be the summer's ultimate party - the ultimate celebration. But he admits, "You know, when you're playing where everybody lives - and they know it's a party, well, all kinds of people show up! So with the kinds of friends I have, who knows what kind of music we'll be making before the night's done.

"I just know that after a year and a half off, I'm so ready to get out there and make new music, to see the fans and hear them sing these songs back to us! I'm especially charged to hear the new songs, because, well, that's part of why I recorded the ones that made the record."

With multiple week #1 "American Kids" marking Chesney's 25th chart-topper and "Til It's Gone" poised to hit the top slot on Billboard Country Singles Chart, The Big Revival hit a sweet spot with Chesney's fans. In addition to the album track "Flora-Bama," which anchored a 40,000+ beach concert in August and CMT Special, Revival also features the free spirited female celebrating "Wild Child," featuring Grace Potter, and the almost bluegrass gospel of "Don't It," with Alison Krauss and Dan Tyminski.

Chesney's arena shows will feature Jake Owen and Chase Rice, while the stadium dates will have a shifting line-up of many of country's biggest names including Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Brantley Gilbert. Mostly, though, they will feature several of the new songs, some favorites that haven't been played in a while and some surprises guaranteed to make people smile.

"Just like making this record, we had time to really get creative about the show. Some of the most creative people I know were thinking about stage design, lights, video screens - even what the set list is going to be! After all this time, when we hit the stage, we're gonna be all out. And I'm so glad we can kick it off in Nashville where so many of my friends are."

2015's The Big Revival Tour is presented by Corona Light.

Come to the live broadcast location at the designated time and simply register; we draw for a key at each and every remote! To find out where we will be next, and for full contest rules, see below. It's the Keys to the Cabin from your Radio Works stations US95 The Hot Country Highway and 93.5 Rock It FM! 

Have you won a key?

If you have already won a key, you are invited to the Hickory Lodge Bar and Grill on Saturday, December 13th for the Keys to the Cabin Grand Finale! Be sure to come in early, as seats fill up quickly. Registration goes from 5 to 7 p.m. and must be completed at 7 p.m. sharp (that means coming and checking in). Bring your driver's license or some form of legal picture ID to confirm your identity. Failure to register by 7 p.m. and/or failure to appear results in a forfeited key. At approximately 8 p.m., the 100 key winners will draw their random key order and begin turning keys to determine the key.

Do you still need to win a key?

There are still chances to sign up to win keys the night of the Keys to the Cabin Grand Finale. Sign up to win between 5 and 7 p.m., by dropping your name in the registration box, and at least 10 key winners will be drawn after 7 p.m. Remember limit one (1) key holder per household.

Be sure to come hungry to the Finale, as there will be burgers and pizza available by the slice for sale until 10 p.m. via Hickory Lodge, not to mention a full bar. After the finale is over, rock the tunes and into the rest of the evening with DJ Barry Roberts. Good luck!
