Craig Campbell brings his family-inspired music to JacksonHoleLive
Growing up in rural Lyons, Georgia, singer/songwriter Craig Campbell learned one important lesson from the ZZ Top records his mother favored: “Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man.” That’s one reason Campbell is always impeccably well tailored on stage, and at industry awards shows and events. But he says there’s an even more important reason: respect. For Campbell, caring enough to wear a pressed, button-down shirt and black cowboy hat when he performs is a show of respect for his fans, for the successful career he considers himself blessed to have, and most of all for the country music genre itself. It’s also a credit to his no nonsense, “yes, ma’am/no, sir” upbringing, which made Campbell into the Southern gentleman he is today.
We are excited to have two headlining acts to kickoff the holiday weekend: JOHNNYSWIM and Playing For Change. Join us Thursday, July 3 at 5:30 pm at Snow King Ball Park.
This summer, JOHNNYSWIM are scheduled to play at SXSW in Austin, the New Orleans Jazz Fest, the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, and Lollapalooza. And we are very fortunate to have them entertain us at JacksonHoleLive on July 3! Wanna check out some more of their music? They were featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” (listen here: http://n.pr/1hKNYzV) and played a NPR “Tiny Desk Concert” (view here: http://n.pr/1nXPfsH). They also recently performed “Home” on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in April (watch here: http://youtu.be/72BiiNXhjRY).

Singer, songwriter and rock star Anders Osborne is going to get adventurous at the first JacksonHoleLive show of the summer of Sunday.
The Southern boy originally from Sweden is going to give the audience “everything from a hard rock experience to a beautiful heartbreaking ballad,” he said via phone last week.
Fiery anthems and tumultuous confessional songs punctuated with raw, inspired guitar.
Rich and glorious…Osborne possesses a voice that rises out of the darkness to the light of a soulful, tremulous wail. He is a consummate showman and shaman, bending successive moments to suit his majestic purposes. Osborne seeks an epic quality to much of his music, crafting layer upon layer of hugely scaled soundscapes.…never lazily derivative…every slashing guitar figure, every cry of a lyric, seems to come from an authentic place.

They say it was the largest gathering Jackson has ever seen. They say it was bigger than the times Dylan or Petty came to town. They say, despite an estimated crowd of 15,000 people, that there were no arrests or incidents outside one guy who “bonked his head” in the parking lot. Read More
