ABOUT BRETT ELDREDGE:

Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Brett Eldredge recently released his brand new single “The Long Way” from his self-titled record, which was the best-selling album (all-genre) upon release and hit #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and the Top Album Sales Chart. “The Long Way,” which he performed on both TODAY and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in August, follows Eldredge’s six chart-topping singles including his most recent, “Wanna Be That Song.” His sophomore album Illinois debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart upon its release, and it features the platinum-certified mega hit “Drunk On Your Love” and gold-certified “Lose My Mind.”

The Paris, IL native released his Christmas album Glow in October of last year, which earned him #1 song on the Holiday Music and Adult Contemporary charts with “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” a duet with Grammy-winner Meghan Trainor. Eldredge’s 2013 debut album Bring You Back spawned three chart-topping singles including the platinum-certified “Don’t Ya,” the gold-certified “Beat of the Music,” which was the most played Country song of 2014, and the gold-certified “Mean To Me.” For more information: Facebook // Twitter // Instagram // Spotify // Website.

ABOUT DEVIN DAWSON:

Since the release of Devin Dawson’s debut single “All On Me” earlier this year, the California-native has already made his TV debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, landed his first Grand Ole Opry performance and most recently was named a 2018 Pandora “Country Artist to Watch.” He has already received critical praise from a multitude of outlets including Entertainment Tonight, ELLE, People, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, The Tennessean, HITS Magazine and more. An atypical Country artist, Dawson’s approach to music is not different on purpose, it’s different with purpose. He grew up just outside the gates of Folsom Prison, drawing inspiration from Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Pulling from these influences, he began to write in a style that is definitively Country. Dawson’s lyrics full of romance and vulnerability, delivered with a distinctive saw-toothed vocal, draw you in from the first verse and keep you hooked until the very last chord. His unique mix of organic roots and high-voltage Country is showcased masterfully on his forthcoming debut Dark Horse, produced by the daring Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne). With a co-write credit on every track, the result will further establish Dawson’s building reputation as a dark horse set to emerge as one of the most exciting modern storytellers the format has ever seen.

ABOUT JILLIAN JAQUELINE:

Just three years after landing in Music City, Jillian recorded a five-song EP with Grammy-winning songwriter and producer Richard Marx behind the board; Marx produced the single titled Overdue(with Vince Gill on harmony vocals) less than twelve months later. Pushing the 2.5 million streaming mark, Overdue launched Jillian’s career into infinity orbit. She inked a publishing deal with Downtown Music Publishing and released her debut self-titled independent project in early 2016. Ranking as one of the Top 20 “Artists To Watch” in 2017, Jillian is also one of CMT’s “Next Women of Country” (Class of 2017).

Predicated on the conclusion of a five-year, “marry me” relationship, her new recording project (produced by long-time friend Tofer Brown/Big Loud Records) places Jillian’s life under a magnifying glass to reveal unbound, genderless themes of regret, nostalgia, heartache and frolic. Featuring song titles like Hate Me,” “God Bless This Mess,” “Holier Than ThouandSad Girls,” the emotionally-weighted album (titled HONESTLY) spotlights “less is more” tracks that clearly demonstrate a comfortable intimacy to unveil Jillian Jacqueline’s identity—undisguised.

Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and Venues Today. It has won “Casino of The Year” at the Country Music Awards in 2008 & 2010 and in 2013, was voted “Arena Of The Year” at the G2E Global Gaming Conference in Las Vegas.  Mohegan Sun Arena was also ranked among the top 10 arena venues in the nation for 2014, regardless of size.
