Been awhile since you’ve caught up with Chris Isaak? Well, in the course of his career he has only released nine extraordinary albums, twelve singles, been nominated for two Grammy awards, acted in several motion pictures and starred in his own critically acclaimed TV series. His legendary shows with his longtime band Silvertone have entertained tens of thousands of people for over two decades. Even his hair has its own fan club. And yet, this highly praised herald platinum-selling artist has never released a greatest hits album. That is until now!

Looking for a perfect ending to a great summer? How about a Trisha Yearwood concert? That’s right, Trisha Yearwood is coming to the Frederick (The Fred) Brown Jr Amphitheater on Friday, September 12, 2008
If you don’t know Trish Yearwood, her music or famous recipes then you must live on another planet whether you like country music or not. It did not hurt that Trisha Yearwood sung two of Garth Brooks’ songs on her debut album but the Georgia-born Yearwood needs no embellishment to shine. Yearwood, who grew up imitating Linda Ronstadt, may not be a Martina McBride but she has demonstrated technical and emotional authority at every turn. Talent, dreams and determination are an intoxicating little cocktail. It’s a recipe that has served to propel a lithesome Georgia blonde from local honky tonks to the world’s most prestigious stages. For Trisha Yearwood, there was never any other path but music.
