This traditional country singer is known for his throwback sound, as heard on hits like the platinum-certified “Heartache Medication,” as well as “Dirt on My Boots,” “Heartache on the Dancefloor” and “Night Shift.” The award-winning country artist was named New Male Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music Awards and New Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association Awards in 2017.


Sunday, August 29: The Guess Who

Known for their electric instrumentation, timeless balladry, unpredictable jamming, and ultimate sing-a-long experience, this Canadian-bred band’s hit parade spans 14 Top 40 hits, including “These Eyes,” “Clap for the Wolfman” and “Hand Me Down World,” as well as their #1 rock anthem “American Woman” and “No Sugar Tonight.” Their long-awaited album of new material, The Future is What it Used to Be, was released in 2018.


Wednesday, September 1: Common Kings

Common Kings deliver head-rocking beats and feel-good vibes with rock, reggae, and island influences. Known for their crazy, fun-loving attitude, the band has produced hits, such as “Wade in Your Water,” “24/7,” “Alcoholic,” “Fish in the Sea” and “No Other Love,” as heard on albums including One Day, Lost in Paradise, Hits and Mrs., and Summer Anthems.

The water plant was the only source of drinking water in the village, in which the primarily Yup’ik residents lack indoor plumbing and rely on honey buckets, not uncommon in the flat, swampy region.
