The Amphitheater at The Wharf is filling the summer months with performances from a versatile lineup of artists, this time featuring two of country music’s big names, Alan Jackson and Randy Houser.
Jackson won a multitude a fans with such breakout hits such as “Chasing That Neon Rainbow” and “Midnight in Montgomery.” But his epic summer anthem, “Chattahoochee,” transformed him into a country music superstar. Over the years, he’s maintained his audience with a clever mainstream style that doesn’t forget the roots of country. The crowd can expect a number of memorable tunes from Jackson’s catalog, as well as cuts from his most recent hit album, “Angels and Alcohol.”
Randy Houser is one of the shining stars of the indie country revolution. When he first came to Nashville, Houser worked behind the scenes as a songwriter, helping to pen such songs as the Trace Adkins hit “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.” Eventually, he joined a number of Music Row songwriters who decided to step from behind the stage curtain. The public fell in love with Houser’s authentic lyrics and edgy pop country. His performance at The Wharf will allow fans to sing along to such hits as “We Went” and “Runnin’ Out of Midnight.”
