Announced this morning, Parker McCollum and special guest Chancey Williams will perform live at the Deadwood Mountain Grand over St. Patrick’s Day weekend. The highly-anticipated announcement comes after months of inactivity at the venue. The “Pretty Heart” singer will mark the Grand’s first show of 2021.

Country music fans of all ages are welcome. Tickets on sale Friday, February 18th at DeadwoodMountainGrand.com.

About Parker McCollum
A singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and dedicated road warrior, Parker McCollum began building a following in his native Texas with 2015's The Limestone Kid. The album track "Meet You in The Middle" became a hit on Texas' regional radio chart — no small feat for an independent, 22-year-old musician — but it was the album's widelyacclaimed follow-up, Probably Wrong, that helped Parker find national success. Compared to John Mayer and Jason Isbell by Rolling Stone, Parker supported the album with a string of sold-out shows, bringing record-breaking crowds to venues like San Angelo's RiverStage and two sold-out Billy Bob’s along the way.

Born in Conroe, TX, and currently based in Austin, the 28-year-old entrepreneurially-spirited artist bridges the gap between Texas' homegrown music scene and Nashville's country-industry headquarters. His songwriting, which has been hailed by The Austin Chronicle for "carrying on the traditions of Texas music without 2018 and a recording deal with Universal Music Group Nashville in June 2019.

Parker just released his new EP, Hollywood Gold, which is named after a horse his grandfather owned decades ago. Hollywood Gold includes Parker’s debut single “Pretty Heart” which has already cracked Top 10 on the country radio chart averaging almost 4 Million streams a week and was recently certified Gold. Parker has been named an artist to watch by Rolling Stone, Billboard, SiriusXM, CMT and more with American Songwriter noting, “The Texas native teeters on the edge of next-level superstardom, taking cues from rule breakers like Chris Stapleton and Kacey Musgraves. 2020 will be his long-overdue breakout”

About Chancey Williams
Saddle bronc rider turned neo-traditional country music sensation, Chancey Williams has gone from competing on horseback to performing on center stage at major rodeos, festivals, and venues throughout the United States. The only artist besides Chris LeDoux to both ride and perform on stage at the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, known as "The Daddy of ‘Em All," Cheyenne Frontier Days, Williams is the next authentic cowboy of country music.

Growing up on a ranch in the Cowboy State, Chancey learned the cowboy-way-of-life from his father, and like his dad, found himself a successful bronc rider, qualifying for the National High School Rodeo Finals, twice at the College National Finals and winning two rounds at Cheyenne Frontier Days.
Chancey embodies the western lifestyle to such an extent that he’s the first and only singer/songwriter to be endorsed by CINCH®. On an impressive roster of the world’s top rodeo athletes, Williams’ sits as the sole musicrelated endorsement deal.

Chancey Williams debuted his highly anticipated new album, 3RD STREET, at no. 5 on the iTunes Country Albums chart. Produced by country music hitmaker, Trent Willmon, the full-length album is sure to resonate with country music fans of all ages. Williams co-wrote eight of the album’s tracks from the reminiscent throwback tune “College,” to upbeat anthems like “The World Needs More Cowboys” and “Tonight We’re Drinkin’” to raw, stripped-down ballads like “Let It Go.” The magic of 3RD STREET really shines through on the band's brilliant remake of iconic Dan Seals & Marie Osmond duet "Meet me in Montana," featuring Brooke Latka.


Casey Donahew, Ian Munsick Headline Sixth Annual Red Dirt Festival at Deadwood Mountain Grand

DEADWOOD, SD. (02/15/21) – Now in its sixth year, the Deadwood Red Dirt Festival has fast become one of the biggest music festivals in the upper mid-west. The event, originally scheduled for January of 2021 had been postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis has now been transformed to a one-day event this year only, on Saturday, May 15th.

Event organizers are excited to bring the festival back to Deadwood with some of the biggest names in Red Dirt music, including the Casey Donahew Band, Ian Munsick and Randy Burghardt.

The event debuted in 2015 with nearly 5,000 fans attending two days of the best in music from the Red Dirt genre. Red Dirt is the color of soil found in Oklahoma and Texas. They are the homes of a music genre that spawned Outlaw Country legends like Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson and created a home grown movement of Americana, folk and alt-country sounds. Some define Red Dirt music as “country music with attitude”. Others say it’s a state of mind as much as it is a sound – a sound that successfully closes the gap between rock and country.

Regardless of definition, Red Dirt fans are loyal and have come in droves in previous years to Deadwood Mountain Grand. “We absolutely love this event,” said Susan Kightlinger, General Manager of Deadwood Mountain Grand. “The music is incredible, the fans come to party and the atmosphere is electric. It really is one of my favorite events of the year.”

Headlining the festival is the wildly popular Casey Donahew Band. Casey Donahew has carved out quite a career over the past decade, attracting a solid base of loyal fans that flock to his legendary live shows. Building his career from the ground up one show at a time, he’s managed to perform on countless stages night after night in front of thousands, topped the Texas music charts several times, released four albums independently to critical acclaim, and forged a path all his own through the music scene without the aid or muscle of a major record label or power-suit management company.

Warming up for Donahew will be rising star and regional favorite Ian Munsick Breathing fresh Rocky Mountain air into the Nashville music scene, Munsick is pioneering a new brand of country.

The Wyoming-born singer/songwriter’s upbringing was a mix of working the ranch and working crowds. Under the tutelage of their fiddle-playing father, Munsick and his two older brothers grew up playing everything from bluegrass to The Beatles. Incorporating elements across genres, he has now begun to establish himself as a progressive artist with an old soul.

Captivated by traditional lyrical truth and the modern soundscape, Ian followed his ear to Music City. In 2017 he released a self-titled EP, winning iHeartRadio’s Rocky Mountain Song of the Year for the rootsy “Horses Are Faster” and becoming the only artist who simultaneously qualified two tracks as finalists in the NSAI/CMT songwriting competition.

Equipped with a full ready-for-release collection of songs, the 27-year-old has signed his first major label deal with Warner Music Nashville. His debut album Coyote Cry, due February 26, features his mile-high tenor underscoring self-penned songs that conjure equal parts epic adventure and down-to-earth wisdom. The record marks the dawn of western pop-laced country, pulling a thread straight from Chris LeDoux through Post Malone. Munsick’s recent releases include “Long Haul,” “Me Against the Mountain” and “Humble” – and with them, western country is being reborn.

Kicking off the festival will be Cheyenne, WY singer/songwriter and 2017 Rocky Mountain CMA Songwriter of the Year Nominee, Randy Burghardt.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, February 16th. They will be available at The Spotlight Box Office at Deadwood Mountain Grand – or at ticketmaster.com.

Jersey Boys Alum Bring 'Under The Streetlamp' To Deadwood Mountain Grand

DEADWOOD, S.D. (01/11/21) – What happens when life imitates art? You get PBS favorite, Under The Streetlamp and their electrifying, inspiring music that is thrilling audiences across the globe. They are bringing their high energy show to the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center on Sunday, June 20th.

This date is rescheduled from the COVID-19 postponement in December. If you already purchased tickets for the rescheduled date, they will be honored for the new date in June.

Originally established in 2009 by members of the Chicago company of the TONY-Award-Winning Musical ‘Jersey Boys’, this fraternity of gifted performers breathes new life into your favorite Doo Wop, Motown, and old time Rock n’ Roll hits. Streetlamp’s unique blend of harmonies and slick dance moves make it impossible to resist the urge to sing and dance along to songs from the heydays of AM radio.

After their run with Jersey Boys in 2010, the founding members spent the next year cultivating their brand, always with the motto to stand on the shoulders of the artists that created the classic hits from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Playing sold-out shows in Chicago-land venues including Park West and The Paramount Theatre in Aurora, the boys caught the eye of a local producer. He believed their nostalgic rebirth of retro Rock n’ Roll could have a home on PBS, where their music would reach millions around the country.

The guys filmed a short promo and presented it to WTTW PBS in Chicago. The directive was clear, “You film your concert and we will be your presenting station.” In the fall of 2011, Under the Streetlamp, LIVE! was filmed at the Star Plaza Theatre, in Merrillville, IN. The following spring their program started airing on PBS stations across the country. Word started to come in that LIVE!, was a hit and stations everywhere were adding it to their pledge schedule.

Street Lamp launched its first tour in the spring of 2012 at Club Nokia, in Los Angeles. The band spent the next few months playing to enthusiastic crowds in historic venues across the country. Notable venues include Buckhead Theater, Theatre at Westbury and Chautauqua Institute Amphitheater. The guys were thrilled to open for the legendary Temptations that fall and embarked on their first holiday tour, which launched at The Smith Center in Las Vegas.

The second PBS Special, Under The Streetlamp, Let The Good Times Roll, was filmed in 2013 and much like LIVE!, found a home on PBS. In 2014, following the successful airings on stations across the country, Streetlamp found themselves on the road again. Taking their brand of retro rock n’ roll across the pond fora three week tour in Belgium and the Netherlands and also, made an appearance on the Military Channel’s Wounded Warrior Telethon hosted by Alan Alda and Joe Mantello.

They were honored to open the 2014 season at the world famous Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and played the renowned venue Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia. Streetlamp took their brand of retro music to Mexico, and spent time in the recording studio mentored by Carl Giammarese of The Buckinghams and Marshall Thompson of the Chi-Lites. 2015 was devoted to touring and generating new material. And in November of 2015, Streetlamp’s music from their holiday album Every Day’s a Holiday, premiered on Sirius XM Radio. The success of the first two PBS pledge specials allowed Streetlamp the ability to produce a third concert celebration of the music that made them a hit nationwide.

In the spring of 2016, Under the Streetlamp; Rockin’ Round The Clock was filmed, once again at the famed Star Plaza Theatre. PBS stations around the country and Canada are still airing Rockin’ Around the Clock today! Also in 2016, Under the Streetlamp made their pops symphony debut with the Desert Symphony, in Palm Desert, California. Since that first symphony appearance, Streetlamp has had the pleasure of performing with some of the most well-known symphony orchestras in the country including the Utah Symphony, the Phoenix Symphony, the Cleveland Pops Orchestra, the Knoxville Symphony, the Milwaukee Symphony, the Oklahoma City Symphony, and the world famous Detroit Symphony, just to name a few.

In the spring of 2016, the band began talks with Media Vision about collaborating on a new program for public television. This exciting two-part docu-series, Harmonies for Healing, centers on a singing competition in Northwest Indiana. Mentored by Under the Streetlamp, singers of all ages, genders, backgrounds and ethnicities battled for a chance to perform in concert with the retro quartet. Featuring all the amazing talent and drama of other music competition series’, the guys made sure to approach the contestants with kindness and inspiration, instead of criticism. This moving, musical event was built on the premise that music has a healing power that can be tapped into when faced with life’s ups and downs. The docu-series debuted on PBS stations around the country in 2017.

Harmonies for Healing is still airing nationwide today. In 2018, the band continues to play to sold-out venues across the US. They are currently working on two studio albums, Under the Streetlamp: Hip to the Holidays, and Under the Streetlamp: Listen to the Music. A highlight this year was performing at the famed Summerfest Music fest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Streetlamp has been able to keep a fresh vibe with new twists along the way. The mission and objective has always remained very clear, to breathe new life into timeless songs in order to excite audiences and ensure everyone leaves a live concert with a smile or sings along when hearing their music on the radio, streaming or CD. With irresistible charm and rapport, of a modern day Rat Pack, Under the Streetlamp proves that retro has never sounded so modern.
