Several of these artists have Michigan ties!

  • Terry McBride’s former band, McBride & the Ride, performed their first concert in Detroit. Terry returned to Michigan in April 2019 to perform at the Holland Civic Center and the Chenery Auditorium in Kalamazoo.
  • Randy Travis performed at Van Andel Arena on October 1, 2005. Randy and Mary Travis sent a hand-written letter in December 2019 to a Schoolcraft, MI woman that was diagnosed with ALS. They were touched by the VerHey family’s story that they came across in the Kalamazoo Gazette and were particularly moved to read that the VerHeys recently danced at their daughter's wedding to the Randy Travis song "Forever and Ever, Amen," the same song that was played for the first dance at the VerHeys’ own wedding in 1988.
  • Farewell Angelina's Ashley Gearing performed at the Midland Center for the Arts in Midland, MI on June 14, 2019. When asked about favorite venues they’ve played, Gearing said, “We were the first act to play at the reopening of The Capitol Theatre in Flint, Michigan and the people that came to that show were just so excited to have us and it was such a vibey, cool atmosphere.”
  • Kalie Shorr was scheduled to play May 2020 show dates in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, but has had to postpone them.
  • Honey County played at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids for the NACA Mid America Showcase in October of 2018.
