Aaron Lewis

Lead singer of Staind

Genre: Rock

Venue: Ovation

Date: Saturday, Jan. 2, 2010, at 8 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $49, $59 and $69 plus tax and applicable fees

Artist Info: Front man Aaron Lewis of Staind blends heavy metal with soulful melodic rock, sensitive lyrics and an emotionally vulnerable image. After recording their first album Tormented in 1996, the band reached No. 1 in 2001 on The Billboard 200 with Break the Cycle and again in 2005 with Chapter V. Through the band’s success Lewis has shined as a solo act, rocking mainstream radio with “Outside,” a live collaboration with Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst during the 1999 Family Values Tour, which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Main Stream Rock Tracks in 2001. Staind’s fourth studio album The Illusion of Progress debuted in the Top Three and features the No. 1 song “Believe.” Lewis has continually toured with Staind, including a current tour with Creed, and is kicking off his sixth acoustic tour with his Station Casinos’ Vegas shows. In other news, Lewis will be appearing on Drury Outdoors’ popular Outdoor Channel series, “Dream Season Celebrity,” set for broadcast in 2010. This is the seventh season of the reality hunting show that chronicles competing teams from across the country. An avowed outdoorsman, Lewis’s participation in the series will raise funds for the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which grants once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Nashville Unplugged: The Story Behind the Song

Featuring David Lee Murphy and Rob Crosby

Venue: Ovation

Genre: Country

Date: Friday, Jan. 15, 2010, at 8 p.m.

Doors at 7:15 p.m. featuring “Songs from a Hat”

Ticket Prices: FREE

Artist Info: Aptly called Nashville Unplugged, this show is based on the concept of getting to know what’s behind the song, similar to the famed Bluebird Café in Nashville. Each month features a songwriter who goes through the process of what went into writing a particular song and then performs it at the show. January’s featured songwriters are David Lee Murphy and Rob Crosby. Murphy is both a singer and songwriter, having written his own songs “Dust on the Bottle” and “The Road You Leave Behind” as well as for other artists, including Kenny Chesney’s “Living in Fast Forward” and Jason Aldean’s “Big Green Tractor.” Crosby is the other featured songwriter and has written the songs “Concrete Angel” for Martina McBride and “Holdin’ a Good Hand” for Lee Greenwood.

Each month is hosted by singer/songwriters Brian McComas who wrote and sang “99.9% Sure (I’ve Never Been Here Before)” and Aaron Benward of Blue County who wrote and sang “Good Little Girls.” Another fun aspect of Nashville Unplugged is “Songs from a Hat” where guests that arrive between 7:15 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. can make up a title to a song and place the suggestion in a hat. The songwriters will pick one title from that hat and then pen a song throughout the course of the evening, to be performed at the end.

Must be 21 years and older

Ted Nugent

Genre: Rock

Venue: Grand Events Center

Date: Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010, at 8 p.m.

Ticket Prices: $27.50, $37.50, $47.50 and $57.50 plus tax and applicable fees

Artist Info: Ted Nugent first hit the music scene with the Amboy Dukes in which he played his legendary Gibson Byrdland guitar. The band released several albums, including Journey to the Center of the Mind of which the psychedelic title track became one of the band’s hits. With a high turnover in band members and “The Nuge” remaining the one constant, he officially changed the band name to Ted Nugent and The Amboy Dukes in the early ’70s, and by the mid-’70s simply became known as Ted Nugent. In 1977, Nugent released Cat Scratch Fever that spawned the hit single of the same name. At this point, he was also renowned for his stage persona – often entering the stage by swinging on a rope and wearing nothing but a loin cloth and knee-high leather boots. Throughout his career, Nugent has had several hit singles, including “The Flying Lip Lock” in 1981 and “Little Miss Dangerous” in 1986. Nugent is also an avid hunter and sits on the board of the National Rifle Association as well as penned the autobiography “God, Guns & Rock n’ Roll.” He also hosts the No. 1 radio show in Detroit, often sharing his political views.
