KGSR's Weekend Guide 7/11-7/13
AUSTIN 360 AMPHITHEATER
….Sheryl Crow, Gloriana, AND Rascal Flatts! Sheryl is definitely leaning more towards the "country" genre, but at the end of the day, she is a classic artist that can ENTERTAIN! She has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and picked up NINE Grammy Awards throughout her career. Plus, she's worked with Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, and Willie Nelson. So she's got street cred. And, the venue is amazing. Gates open at 6pm.
The Big Parade
