Travelin’ Man

One minute Chris Stapleton was waiting in the wings, patiently holding on for his own musical life to start, as he watched artist after artist record his songs. He was content that his words and music were out there. Then suddenly it was like this relatively unknown young man caught lightning in a bottle when his debut album Traveller took everybody by surprise.

Back in the Saddle

Mickey Gilley is somewhat like that bunny that never runs out of juice or the watch that takes a licking and keeps on ticking. While the 81-year-old was recovering from a recent car accident, he missed only one scheduled performance, but was back in the saddle and out on the road for the rest of his tour in very short time.

Wild Wild West

Established before the turn of the twentieth century as a gold mining hub, Oatman, AZ has weathered the years to become a popular spot for tourists to step back in time to the Wild West.

Resident Rednecks

Chris Stapleton’s debut album Traveller got the ball rolling on the country artist’s explosive career, so it makes sense there should be a festival right down the street that pays homage to that success while the singer-songwriter is in town for his sold-out show. Stapleton’s concert is Saturday night March 24, but the Colorado Belle’s “Travellers Country Festival” is three days of live country music, food and drink — Friday-Sunday, March 23-25. Festival hours are Friday and Saturday (2-10 p.m.) and Sunday (noon-7 p.m.).
