Gladys Knight – 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10

Gladys Knight rocketed to fame in the 1960s and 1970s as the lead singer of Gladys Knight and the Pips, with hit songs like “Midnight Train to Georgia.” A seven-time Grammy winner with the group and as a solo singer, Knight sang the National Anthem at the most recent Super Bowl.

Chris Young – 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18

With his first hit, “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song)” off his smash album The Man I Want To Be, Chris Young became a country sensation. Young stayed at the top of the charts for years, hitting number one with subsequent smashes like “Tomorrow,” “You,” “Neon,” “I’m Comin’ Over,” and “Losing Sleep.” In 2013 Young delivered his huge smash in – the country anthem “Aw Naw”. It was followed by more Top Ten hits: “Who I Am with You” and “Lonely Eyes.”

Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit – 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24

Jason Isbell has made some of the most impressive and influential music in Southern rock. Like Isbell’s 2013 breakthrough, Southeastern, and his double-Grammy-winning follow-up, Something More Than Free, his most recent album The Nashville Sound features many themes, from humor, heartache, wisdom and beauty to, of all things, hope and leadership.

Dana Carvey – 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25
