Five Finger Death Punch, Three Day Grace, Bad Wolves and Fire From The Gods descended upon Lexington, Kentucky’s Rupp Arena with one of 2019’s hottest hard rock tours.
The Austin,Texas-based opener Fire from the Gods kicked off the night with a strong set and got the crowd going. Not a stranger to the area, they performed here in 2018 with Sevendust at Manchester Music Hall and they made an appearance at Louisville’s Louder Than Life Festival. (more…)

Over 10,000 people showed up to enjoy “Christmas Eve and Other Stories.” The show began at an “Old City Bar.” Not what you would expect for a Christmas performance, but audience members were quickly transported through numerous tales of Christmas and Hope. Just like the hope provided to the Kentucky Children’s Hospital with the $7,765.00 donated by TSO. (more…)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Sony Music Nashville and Villa 40 announce the signing of singer/songwriter Tyler Booth to Villa 40/Sony Music Nashville. Booth is the first artist to launch as part of an exclusive, long-term joint-venture agreement between the label group and Villa 40, co-founded by music industry executives including Joe Fisher, Brad Margolis and Trace Ayala.
“I’m so excited to sign with Sony Nashville/Villa 40; they plucked me out of the hills of Kentucky,” Booth said. “They told me they believed in me, loved the music I was making and felt like they wanted to be a part of my future. I’ve grown to know them like family and feel like it’s where I belong.”
Born and raised in Wolfe County in the Southeastern region of Kentucky, Tyler Booth has been writing songs and honing his craft for years, but, it was his smooth baritone vocals that first caught the attention of producer/songwriter Phil O’Donnell. Hailing from the stomping grounds of John Michael Montgomery, Montgomery Gentry and George Molton, the 23-year-old performs regularly at the famed Austin City Saloon in Corbin, Kentucky. (more…)
