Don Felder Formerly of the Eagles Don Felder is renowned as a former lead guitarist of The Eagles, one of the most popular and influential rock groups of our time. Saturday, October 27, 2018 7:30 pm Tickets: $52.50, $42.50, $32.50, $23.50 Putting all the tumult and glory he’d experienced to that point into perspective gave new urgency to the creation of Road to Forever – only Felder’s second solo effort in a storied, four-decade-plus sojourn through rock history. Road to Forever represents the culmination of a personal journey of introspection that Felder began over ten years ago. In 2001, he suffered an emotionally-devastating double blow – separating acrimoniously from The Eagles for the last time while facing the end of his first marriage, which had lasted 29 years and produced four children.

“Every identity I’d been attached to – musician, husband, and father – was being taken away,” he says. To heal, Felder began writing down as many memories as he could, putting his past in perspective. Finding these musings compelling, Felder was inspired to write a book, and connected with legendary Hollywood deal-maker Michael Ovitz to set it up. “Two weeks later, I went to New York with a three-page synopsis, and received four offers from publishers,” Felder says. “Now I was forced to reflect on my life.” That introspection inspired him to “write out the stories of my life as songs. After I collected myself, I found I needed to go out and play music again, and that’s how I began recording the upcoming album.

Baptist Health Presents Chris Tomlin Christmas Songs of Worship Friday, November 30, 2018 7:00 pm Tickets: $40, $50 From his rural Texas roots, cutting his chops on his father’s Country-Western record collection, to the small Baptist church where he was first compelled by congregational singing, and now in his current position as the definitive worship leader for the worldwide church, Chris Tomlin has always been motivated to provide spiritual seekers a voice to talk with God through music. “Even as a kid, when I played at church, I loved the sound of people singing,” Chris says, remembering his first impressions of hearing his home congregation raise the roof in praise. “I had no clue I would become a worship leader. I just loved to play music that people could sing with, and I loved it when people would sing to God.”

Fast-forward thirty years and the artist whose humble demeanor suggests music is as much his heart’s calling as a heady career has sold millions of albums, streamed billions of tracks, spawned 15 #1 radio singles and been awarded with multiple RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications, and a list of Grammy, Dove, Billboard Music and American Music Awards. Touted by TIME Magazine as “the most often sung artist anywhere,” on any given Sunday tens of millions of people in churches across the globe sing songs from Chris’ rich, worship-focused catalog. Consistently ranking in the Top 20 of the CCLI Top 100 chart years after initial release, his benchmark anthems include “At the Cross (Love Ran Red),” “Our God” and “How Great is our God” – one of the fastest rising modern day hymns in CCLI chart history. His latest #1 single-turned-corporately sung staple, “Good, Good Father,” was RIAA certified Gold after spending 15 weeks atop the Billboard Top Christian Tracks Chart.
