Mohegan Sun Arena’s One Day Sale

Three fantastic shows to choose from; tickets only $20.00

In the music industry, there are very few artists who surpass superstar status to become true American icons. Hank Williams Jr. is a founding member of that elite club. Throughout his career, he’s helped shape our country’s cultural landscape with his unbridled creativity through his “from the gut” honesty and unwavering personal convictions. His music not only reflects his own life, but the common experiences that unite us.

The Judds have celebrated a career like no other.  Adored by fans and admired by their peers, these Cinderellas from Kentucky helped reshape the sound and image of American popular music. Their first project, The Judds, was released in 1984.  By the close of 1985, The Judds had two platinum albums, a gold album and six #1 singles.  These two small-town girls became one of the most celebrated success stories in Country music, selling more than twenty million records and winning over sixty industry awards including five Grammys, nine CMAs and eight Billboard Music awards.  By 1989, they were one of the top-grossing touring acts in America, selling more concert ticketsthat year than everyone but The Grateful Dead and The Rolling Stones.  In October of 1990, Naomi learned she had contracted Hepatitis C.  The debilitating disease left her no choice but to retire after a lifetime of dreams and eight years at the top.

Montgomery Gentry has captured a large following with their “what you see is what you get” mentality.  Their accolades include gold and platinum albums, CMA and ACM awards, a Grammy nomination and sold-out tours. Kentucky natives, Montgomery Gentry – Gerald Edward (Eddie) Montgomery and Troy Gentry – have also been added to the performance lineup of the Country Music Association’s Music Festival on June 11th joining the likes of Dierks Bentley, Brooks & Dunn, Brad Paisley and John Rich.
