Popular Northwest based artist Nate Botsford’s country rock hybrid style is a lifetime in the making. Nate began playing piano when he was only five, but the Taylor acoustic guitar given to him by his dad at age 14 became the instrument that has accompanied him everywhere and helped to lay the foundation for his musical career. That career has seen up to 300 shows a year for the last five years: from coffeehouses to mainstages, Nate has pleased audiences with his feel-good tunes and relatable lyrics. Nate has shared the stage with the likes of Old Dominion, Brett Young, Chris Janson, LoCash, Lonestar and many others and calls upon his influences of Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, and his big-band pianist grandfather while crafting his music.

His songs have received regular rotation radio play and won numerous awards, including 2015 Project Aloft national songwriting contest judged by industry professionals. A 25-city tour in 2016 took Nate and his music to new audiences, and it only gets bigger from there. Nate’s dream is to share his music with a wider national audience and to leave with his listeners a lasting impression of singable melodies and lyrics that, as Nate says, “Can feel were written just for them to find a glimmer of hope.” Nate’s released his most recent EP, Buzzin’, in 2019, which includes river floating, sun loving, summer song Luxury Float. The official music video for Luxury Float was featured by CMT and Spotify editorial playlists.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

“The first time Yelawolf and I connected on a track, it was like this fire exploded in my mind,” says Shooter Jennings. “It confirmed my long-held suspicion that there was something really special between the two of us.”

Special, it turns out, is a serious understatement when it comes to Jennings and Yelawolf’s extraordinary new collaboration, Sometimes Y. Recorded in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the duo’s self-titled debut is a bold and intoxicating rock and roll hybrid, one that fuses past and future sounds to conjure up some alternate universe where David Bowie fronted Thin Lizzy or Axl Rose sang with The Cars. The songs here are as addictive as they are unpredictable, mixing ’80s bombast and arena rock energy with country earnestness and hip-hop swagger, and the performances are thrilling to match, fueled by the pair’s undeniable chemistry and irrepressible joy. Jennings’ production work is lush but never crowded, and Yelawolf’s lyrics are utterly arresting, grappling insightfully with purpose and perseverance, struggle and triumph, pain and transcendence. Weighty as the record can feel at times, it’s ultimately a work of liberation and release, an ecstatic declaration of creative freedom fueled by adventure, discovery, and a little bit of chaos, which is precisely what Sometimes Y is all about.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

The ShotGunBillys are all the good sounds southern music has to offer. They can be found rocking out with Black Oak Arkansas’ Jim Dandy just as surely as jamming with The Bar-Kays’ James Alexander.

Over the past 20 years the ShotGunBillys have played across the nation delivering the same double-barrel thrills whether they are playing before 15 fans in a sleepy Arkansas roadhouse, 1500 fans at Daytona Bike Week or 15,000 fans for the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota!

Since 2001 Jackson Taylor has been one of the most prolific songwriters and recording artists of any genre of music, with over a dozen CD’s and multiple times on Billboard’s Top 100 list. All without record companies, management, booking agents, or publicists. Jackson Taylor personifies true independence.

Born the youngest son to a migrant farm worker, Jackson spent his youth living the modern equivalent of Steinbeck’s, “Grapes of Wrath.” With a background much more akin to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, than his contemporaries. Jackson’s music reflects his adolescence of hard labor and poverty. Growing up working and living in the California, Washington, and Montana fruit ranches. Jackson’s musical influence crosses many boundaries. He has recorded with red dirt legend Jason Boland, and Austin Texas legend Dale Watson. Jonny Two Bags, the lead guitarist of Southern California’s punk innovators and royalty, Social Distortion. As well as rockabilly troubadour Lucky Tubb, and south Texas rockers the Pear Rats. He has shared the stage with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Black Crowes, to Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver. Much of Jackson’s career early on was marred by excessive drugs and alcohol, and violent outbursts. Cementing his image as a wild and out of control artist. Leading him to being blacklisted from many venues across the country and internationally.

The last five years, Texas music’s baddest boy has made good, found his center, and was offered his place in Texas music history by recording a Live at Billy Bob’s CD/DVD in 2013, which would have been unthinkable just a few years before.

Jackson now lives in Denver, CO with his wife, writing books, painting, and turning his manic energies into a constant flow of creativity. He and his band The Sinners, continue to tour and put out records.

As the wild times fade into memory, Jackson Taylor is showing to be as resilient as he is prolific.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

There's more to the duality of Clay Walker's debut Show Dog Nashville album Texas To Tennessee than the title. Certainly, the realities of place are as central as this comeback album's name implies: Nashville busily working toward the next fresh hit; Texas moving at its inimitable and familiar pace. There's also a mix of songwriting and production approaches, evident and more nuanced relationships between the songs themselves, and the overarching presence of a naturally gifted vocalist who relentlessly pursues his own development as a singer. But don't mistake those dualities for dichotomy – and certainly not polarity. In a storied career dotted with smash singles, platinum albums and countless honors and acclaim, maybe the connection between country's timeless themes and music-of-the-moment timeliness has been there all along.

Many of the country fans behind the almost 20 million on-demand and video streams for his latest single "Need A Bar Sometimes" – who may also be among his 750,000 TikTok followers – are wholly unaware of Walker's history. Discovered in a Beaumont area bar by noted producer and head of Giant Records James Stroud (Toby Keith, Tracy Lawrence, Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers), Walker was in his early twenties when he started rattling off a string of smash hits. Among them, “Live Until I Die,” "Dreaming With My Eyes Open," “This Woman And This Man,” "Hypnotize The Moon," "Rumor Has It," “Then What,” "I Can't Sleep" and "She Won't Be Lonely Long." His self-titled debut album rocketed to platinum status, the first of four to cross the million-sold mark.

“Hard to Be an Outlaw (Who Ain’t Wanted Anymore)

came from one of the wild conversations with my roughhouse, rounder, one and only, real brother. Far as I’m concerned, straight shooting, greatest entertainer, songwriter, kickass, lives life to the hilt, outlaw who ever lived – or will live - my best friend, Jackson Taylor.”

— BILLY JOE SHAVER

When you’re immortalized in a song written by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, and recorded by Billy Joe and Willie Nelson, there really is not much more to say than a few facts…

Since 2001 Jackson Taylor has been one of the most prolific songwriters and recording artists of any genre of music, with over a dozen CD’s and multiple times on Billboard’s Top 100 list. All without record companies, management, booking agents, or publicists. Jackson Taylor personifies true independence.

Born the youngest son to a migrant farm worker, Jackson spent his youth living the modern equivalent of Steinbeck’s, “Grapes of Wrath.” With a background much more akin to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, than his contemporaries. Jackson’s music reflects his adolescence of hard labor and poverty. Growing up working and living in the California, Washington, and Montana fruit ranches. Jackson’s musical influence crosses many boundaries. He has recorded with red dirt legend Jason Boland, and Austin Texas legend Dale Watson. Jonny Two Bags, the lead guitarist of Southern California’s punk innovators and royalty, Social Distortion. As well as rockabilly troubadour Lucky Tubb, and south Texas rockers the Pear Rats. He has shared the stage with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Black Crowes, to Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver.

Much of Jackson’s career early on was marred by excessive drugs and alcohol, and violent outbursts. Cementing his image as a wild and out of control artist. Leading him to being blacklisted from many venues across the country and internationally.

The last five years, Texas music’s baddest boy has made good, found his center, and was offered his place in Texas music history by recording a Live at Billy Bob’s CD/DVD in 2013, which would have been unthinkable just a few years before.

Jackson now lives in Denver, CO with his wife, writing books, painting, and turning his manic energies into a constant flow of creativity. He and his band The Sinners, continue to tour and put out records.

As the wild times fade into memory, Jackson Taylor is showing to be as resilient as he is prolific.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

Maiden Moto is proudly presented by The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company!

Richard Young, from The Kentucky Headhunters, says The Comancheros are “ZZ Top goes Star Wars.”

The Comancheros are known for bringing to the stage some of the highest energy performances in the business. They bottled up that fury to produce their first full length release, “Heavy & Western,” followed by “Too Old to Die Young Now.” Now Richard Young, of the infamous Kentucky Headhunters, produced “Memphis to Mexico” which releasing 11/12/2021.

Playing non-stop since 2015, they’ve stormed the stage with Randy Rogers, The Cadillac Three, Drake White, The Steel Woods, Alabama, Whiskey Myers, Blackberry Smoke, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. These experiences have sharpened their spurs and inspired the band to create a sound that exemplifies what it means to be a modern-day cowboy: heavy and western.

“Hard to Be an Outlaw (Who Ain’t Wanted Anymore)

came from one of the wild conversations with my roughhouse, rounder, one and only, real brother. Far as I’m concerned, straight shooting, greatest entertainer, songwriter, kickass, lives life to the hilt, outlaw who ever lived – or will live - my best friend, Jackson Taylor.”

— BILLY JOE SHAVER

When you’re immortalized in a song written by the likes of Billy Joe Shaver, and recorded by Billy Joe and Willie Nelson, there really is not much more to say than a few facts…

Since 2001 Jackson Taylor has been one of the most prolific songwriters and recording artists of any genre of music, with over a dozen CD’s and multiple times on Billboard’s Top 100 list. All without record companies, management, booking agents, or publicists. Jackson Taylor personifies true independence.

Born the youngest son to a migrant farm worker, Jackson spent his youth living the modern equivalent of Steinbeck’s, “Grapes of Wrath.” With a background much more akin to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, than his contemporaries. Jackson’s music reflects his adolescence of hard labor and poverty. Growing up working and living in the California, Washington, and Montana fruit ranches. Jackson’s musical influence crosses many boundaries. He has recorded with red dirt legend Jason Boland, and Austin Texas legend Dale Watson. Jonny Two Bags, the lead guitarist of Southern California’s punk innovators and royalty, Social Distortion. As well as rockabilly troubadour Lucky Tubb, and south Texas rockers the Pear Rats. He has shared the stage with everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Black Crowes, to Willie Nelson and Billy Joe Shaver.

Much of Jackson’s career early on was marred by excessive drugs and alcohol, and violent outbursts. Cementing his image as a wild and out of control artist. Leading him to being blacklisted from many venues across the country and internationally.

The last five years, Texas music’s baddest boy has made good, found his center, and was offered his place in Texas music history by recording a Live at Billy Bob’s CD/DVD in 2013, which would have been unthinkable just a few years before.

Jackson now lives in Denver, CO with his wife, writing books, painting, and turning his manic energies into a constant flow of creativity. He and his band The Sinners, continue to tour and put out records.

As the wild times fade into memory, Jackson Taylor is showing to be as resilient as he is prolific.

Creating a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland rock with an edgy vocal blend – and a growing reputation for mixing backwoods pride with big-picture positivity – BBR Music Group/BMG’s Wheelhouse Records’ LOCASH is the Country music duo of singer-songwriters Preston Brust and Chris Lucas. Now rising up the Country ranks with a streak of hits, critical acclaim and awards-show recognition, the duo has two albums, eight charting singles, and nearly 500 MILLION global streams to their credit, with more on the horizon. After breaking out in 2015 with their GOLD-certified tribute to appreciating what you’ve got, “I Love This Life,” LOCASH followed up with two more tracks defined by gratitude and good times. The flirtatious, GOLD-certified No. 1 smash, “I Know Somebody,” became their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts in 2016, and in 2017, LOCASH dropped the fun-loving romantic anthem, “Ring on Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their album, The Fighters, which arrived in 2016 to Top 15 success. The duo has since received nominations from the genre’s biggest awards shows – including back-to-back nods for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year from the Academy of Country Music, and Vocal Duo of the Year from the Country Music Association, both in 2017. After joining the BBR Music Group/BMG family, LOCASH launched its latest album, Brothers, in 2019, which featured another GOLD-certified No. 1 single, “One Big Country Song.” Respected stage performers with a nationwide audience, they’ve just released the wild-and-free five-track EP, Woods & Water.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

In addition to official Freedom Celebration events, you have the opportunity throughout the Rally to honor those who have served by visiting several meaningful military tributes located at Buffalo Chip’s free-access CrossRoads.

More Details Coming Soon


Color Guard

A military branch color guard will present the colors on the Wolfman Jack Stage followed by a moving rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner.

Bob Hanson Distinguished Service Award
Each year the Buffalo Chip chooses members of our military to honor for their courage, sacrifices and heroic patriotism. Past recipients of this award include Retired Navy SEAL Richard “Skipper” Marcinko, Senator John McCain, Colonel Steve Ritchie, Bob Woodruff, Retired Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods and Former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty. Buffalo Chip President Rod Woodruff will present this award to this year’s honorees on the main stage before that night’s headlining performance.

Meet past award recipients!

On-Site Veterans Organizations


America’s Mighty Warriors
The organization was founded by Debbie Lee after her son Marc was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in Iraq on August 2, 2006. In Marc’s last letter home, he asked for friends and family to “pass on the love and kindness and precious gift of human life”. Since then, America’s Mighty Warriors has been fighting to support our troops, the fallen and their families and to work with like-minded organizations to do the same.

Special Operations Wounded Warriors
This 501(c)(3) charity was formed in August of 2012 for the distinct purpose of providing outdoor experiences and focused therapeutic retreats to a select group of both active duty and veteran U.S. Military Special Operations Forces that have received wounds (both seen and unseen) in battle or significant training accidents, most of which that have been awarded our country’s prestigious Purple Heart Medal.

Vet Center
The Rapid City Vet Center exists as part of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services to eligible veterans in order to help them make a smoother post-war readjustment to civilian life. The Vet Center will be represented at the CrossRoads, where they will be providing counseling services for vets and their surviving parents, spouses, children and siblings.

Buddy Poppies
Help the VFW maintain national and state veterans’ rehabilitation and service programs by purchasing a Buddy Poppy! The VFW Post 3312 of Belle Fourche, SD will be selling these symbolic memorial flowers throughout the campground on Thursday Aug. 10.

Vietnam Veterans of America – Deadwood Chapter
VVA CHAPTER #1039 welcomes all who served in Vietnam between February 28, 1961 and May 7, 1975, or in any duty location between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975. Joining VVA allows you to connect with other veterans, stay up with the latest on special events.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

Tim Zach is that guy who used to sip beers at your local bar on open mic night. Ball cap pulled down over his eyes. Killing the crowd with that smooth baritone voice. The guy who entered contests for the hell of it – and always won. “I never had any ambition to become an artist when I was in high school,” admits Zach. “Playing in a band didn’t enter my mind. I just sang for fun. At that point in my life I was pretty focused on sports.” Zach was exposed to country music at a young age. His dad, Frank, was a big Alabama fan and the two would drive on Highway 13 near Zach’s hometown of Glidden, Wisconsin, singing along to “The Closer You Get.” “That’s still one of my fondest memories,” Zach says. Zach didn’t get serious about performing until 20 years later. Even then, his career as a musician happened almost by accident. Some friends convinced him to enter the “Colgate Country Showdown” singing competition in 2009. A demo tape landed him a live performance, which led to being named the “Best New Country Act in Nebraska”. Zach’s run in the contest ended at regional competition in Albuquerque, N.M. “But it’s where my career as an entertainer would begin.” Tim solidified himself in the Midwest music scene with non-stop touring while fronting the band Whiskey Bent From 2010 to 2021 sharing the stage with countless national acts such as Jake Owen, Jimmie Allen, Diamond Rio, Blackhawk, Sawyer Brown and many others. While with Whiskey Bent Tim and his band mates released two albums “Whiskey Bent – How We Roll” and “Whiskey Bent- Blue Collar America” Which are both available on all streaming services. In 2014 Zach spent time at Station West studio in Nashville where he co-wrote and recorded “Like Him” – a song about his grandfather – as part of his first solo project released in November 2015 and is in the process of recording his sophomore effort with Nashville producer Stokes Nielson at Channel Greatness with the first single due out fall of 2021.

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

Maiden Moto is proudly presented by The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company!

Dan Brekke found his passion for music at a young age being raised by his mom, Kathie Brekke, who is a choir teacher and his dad, Shawn Brekke, who was a band director for many years. He grew up surrounded by music and was always in attendance at his parents shows as they have a band of their own. He started playing instruments at a young age and grew up performing on the stage at Jasper’s Theater in Park Rapids, MN, his family-owned theater. There is where he found his love for the guitar, the fiddle, singing and just sharing his gift of music and his ability to make people laugh with everyone who walked through the doors.

He joined the Johnny Holm band at the age of 19 and enjoyed travelling all across the upper Midwest performing at various bars, fairs, and events. When he turned 21, he made the big move to Nashville. He spent over three years in the music scene in Nashville performing endless hours on Broadway and creating music of his own in his free time. He truly has a gift for song writing.

He released his first album in 2016 titled “Where Do You Wanna Go”. He is currently in the process of creating his second album with singles due to come out in the fall of 2022.

Dan is excited to start his own musical journey here in the upper Midwest. Playing a variety of songs from Country, Blues, rock, to some original music, you will be sure to have a great time attending a show.

For more than 20 years, BlackHawk has shared a unique sense of harmony with their voices, their songs and their fans. It’s a harmony that has sold over 7 million albums, scored some of the most distinctive country radio hits of the ‘90s, and still draws tens of thousands of fans to their electrifying live performances. Today BlackHawk continues to honor its past as it forges its future, and does it all with a commitment that takes their music – and the harmony – to a whole new level.

“When we started,” says BlackHawk co-founder & lead vocalist Henry Paul, “our individual careers as writers and performers gave us somewhat of a more creative sensibility. We were three guys whose goal was to approach country with smart songs and unique harmonies for people who may not automatically like country.” Paul had previously co-founded Southern Rock legends The Outlaws, as well as leading the popular ‘80s rockers The Henry Paul Band. Van Stephenson had mainstream pop success as an ‘80s singer-songwriter-guitarist (“Modern Day Delilah”). And Dave Robbins had written hits for Eric Clapton and Kenny Rogers while partnering with Stephenson to write a series of classic #1 hits for Restless Heart, including “The Bluest Eyes In Texas” and “Big Dreams In A Small Town”.

“Even though the three of us had a love and appreciation for traditional country music,” says Dave, “we knew we weren’t going to be that. Henry was coming from Southern Rock, Van & I were in Nashville, but were writing country songs with pop sensibilities. When it came to our vocals, we wanted the three of us to be up front in the choruses like Crosby, Stills & Nash or The Eagles. What set us apart from the very beginning musically was being true to who we were individually.”

BlackHawk’s 1993 self-titled Arista debut album launched with the smash single “Goodbye Says It All”, followed by the Top 5 hits "Every Once in a While", "I Sure Can Smell the Rain", "Down in Flames" and "That's Just About Right". The album soon certified Double-Platinum, and the band received an ACM nomination as Best New Vocal Group Of The Year. BlackHawk followed up with the hit albums Strong Enough, Love & Gravity and Sky’s The Limit, which collectively featured such hits as “I’m Not Strong Enough To Say No”, “Like There Ain’t No Yesterday”, “Big Guitar”, “Almost A Memory Now”, “There You Have It” and “Postmarked Birmingham”. It was an unprecedented run of hits for a band that never quite fit the standard country mold. “Getting a BlackHawk record on the radio was often a tough sell,” explains Henry, “for the same reason country radio rejected bands like The Mavericks, The Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss. But we were committed to smart, strong songs whether they fit the format or not. And the fans responded.”

But at the height of the trio’s success in 1999, Van Stephenson was diagnosed with an aggressive form of melanoma. “Van’s contribution to the group was enormous,” Henry says. “He could be a tremendously gifted songwriter and a deeply spiritual guy. We found ourselves at a crossroads as a band, and it would have been an easy time for country music to count us out.”

“Two days before Van passed away, Henry and I went to visit him,” Dave remembers. “Van was in a wheelchair at this point, and we took him for a stroll around his neighborhood. We spent the morning just talking, reminiscing about our career and good times together. Towards the end of our visit, Van said ‘I’ve got two things to ask of you guys. First, do what you can to help raise awareness and find a cure for this thing. The other is, don’t quit. There’s still a lot of great music left in BlackHawk.’” Since Van’s death on April 8th, 2001, the band and its fans have raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars for The Van Stephenson Memorial Cancer Fund at Nashville’s Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center.

Henry and Dave regrouped and soon returned to the album charts with their Greatest Hits – dedicated to Van and featuring his final track “Ships Of Heaven” – as well as 2002’s Spirit Dancer and 2011’s Down From The Mountain, along with a touring schedule that brought the music to fans like never before. “Our audiences today are often full of 18 to 30 years olds,” says Dave. “They listened to us as kids, and still have a love for the music we made. That’s a big part of what propels us to keep creating as writers and performers.”

For the fans, for the music and for the brotherhood of Henry and Dave, harmony remains a powerful force. BlackHawk continues to record new music – including their well-received 2015 Brothers Of The Southland album, a forthcoming Christmas record and an acoustic greatest hits album – and deliver stellar live shows, backed by an all-star band of veteran country and southern rock players. “BlackHawk has a 20-year history of a certain kind of song craft as well as a quality of performance,” Henry says with pride. “People have always come to our shows expecting a concert that is emotionally and musically engaging, and the band still sounds even better than the records, night after night, show after show. When we take the stage, we work as hard as we ever have. We owe it the music, we owe it to ourselves, and Van, and we owe it to the fans. Now more than ever, that’s the true legacy of BlackHawk.”

For more than 20 years, BlackHawk has shared a unique sense of harmony with their voices, their songs and their fans. It’s a harmony that has sold over 7 million albums...

Tim Zach is that guy who used to sip beers at your local bar on open mic night. Ball cap pulled down over his eyes. Killing the crowd with that smooth baritone voice. The guy who entered contests for the hell of it – and always won. “I never had any ambition to become an artist when I was in high school,” admits Zach. “Playing in a band didn’t enter my mind. I just sang for fun. At that point in my life I was pretty focused on sports.” Zach was exposed to country music at a young age. His dad, Frank, was a big Alabama fan and the two would drive on Highway 13 near Zach’s hometown of Glidden, Wisconsin, singing along to “The Closer You Get.” “That’s still one of my fondest memories,” Zach says. Zach didn’t get serious about performing until 20 years later. Even then, his career as a musician happened almost by accident. Some friends convinced him to enter the “Colgate Country Showdown” singing competition in 2009. A demo tape landed him a live performance, which led to being named the “Best New Country Act in Nebraska”. Zach’s run in the contest ended at regional competition in Albuquerque, N.M. “But it’s where my career as an entertainer would begin.” Tim solidified himself in the Midwest music scene with non-stop touring while fronting the band Whiskey Bent From 2010 to 2021 sharing the stage with countless national acts such as Jake Owen, Jimmie Allen, Diamond Rio, Blackhawk, Sawyer Brown and many others. While with Whiskey Bent Tim and his band mates released two albums “Whiskey Bent – How We Roll” and “Whiskey Bent- Blue Collar America” Which are both available on all streaming services. In 2014 Zach spent time at Station West studio in Nashville where he co-wrote and recorded “Like Him” – a song about his grandfather – as part of his first solo project released in November 2015 and is in the process of recording his sophomore effort with Nashville producer Stokes Nielson at Channel Greatness with the first single due out fall of 2021.

SHOOT TO THRILL
- ALL-FEMALE TRIBUTE TO AC/DC -
Shoot To Thrill includes Kara (vocals), Susan (guitar), Jai (bass), Wendy (guitar) and Kate (drums). Not only are the girls professional musicians with impeccable skills, they are also quite easy on the eyes and full of energy for an entertaining stage show!

The girls decided on AC/DC in particular, because the band's songs are a marriage of compelling music and creative story-telling. The guitar work is intricate yet not overplayed, while the rhythms are driving and dynamic. The silence is as important as the noise, and the lyrics are relatable and captivating. You just HAVE to sing along....or air-guitar….or BOTH!

The girls decided to do a full tribute rather than a cover band, because a tribute is much more challenging. You play many songs by the same artist and really reach inside that artist copying not only their playing style but also their signature stage moves. It's really quite an art and very rewarding when you make it all come together.

Shoot To Thrill is based out of Raleigh, NC and tours all along the East Coast. The girls look forward to meeting you and rocking you into an unbelievable frenzy of good times!

Pull it, tear it, sit on it, or soak it with your beer; we don’t care how you get it on, just do it before the other contestants.

 

Cherry Pie Eating Contest
No one can deny that it’s fun to get pie-eyed at the Best Party Anywhere™, but it’s even more fun when you’re doing it for your chance to win free Rally Passes! Check out this and all the other crazy contests during the Buffalo Chip’s Fan Fest Celebration at the CrossRoads!

Stud Contest
Another Fan Fest competition, the Stud Contest calls the men aboard the Big Engine Bar Stage to demonstrate the right combination of manliness and charisma it takes to be a true stud.

Mullet Contest
Does your hair make you go fast, steal your friend’s girl and not apologize because, welp, mullets are just that way?

Maiden Moto - this ain’t your typical art show.

This show isn’t in a tiny local art gallery, or in a pristine white room. There’s no cocktail dresses or hors d’oeuvres, more like leather jackets, helmets and brews. This is a grassroots, down home moto show combined with art - lowbrow, lowrider, hot rod, dirty real art.

And all the art - comes from women. Not just any women - women who ride. Women who love, live and breathe motorcycles.

This isn’t just pretty photos of pretty ladies posed with a motorcycle. All of the artists involved - the photographers, the painters, the leather makers - they’re all female.

Why?
Because nearly 20% of motorcycle ownership is women. And we’re determined to watch that number continue to grow.

You’ll find Maiden Moto across the country at your favorite motorcycle shows, rallies and events. Check out our Locations page to see where you can come be part of the movement.

Maiden Moto is proudly presented by The Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company!

Dan Brekke found his passion for music at a young age being raised by his mom, Kathie Brekke, who is a choir teacher and his dad, Shawn Brekke, who was a band director for many years. He grew up surrounded by music and was always in attendance at his parents shows as they have a band of their own. He started playing instruments at a young age and grew up performing on the stage at Jasper’s Theater in Park Rapids, MN, his family-owned theater. There is where he found his love for the guitar, the fiddle, singing and just sharing his gift of music and his ability to make people laugh with everyone who walked through the doors.

He joined the Johnny Holm band at the age of 19 and enjoyed travelling all across the upper Midwest performing at various bars, fairs, and events. When he turned 21, he made the big move to Nashville. He spent over three years in the music scene in Nashville performing endless hours on Broadway and creating music of his own in his free time. He truly has a gift for song writing.

He released his first album in 2016 titled “Where Do You Wanna Go”. He is currently in the process of creating his second album with singles due to come out in the fall of 2022.

Dan is excited to start his own musical journey here in the upper Midwest. Playing a variety of songs from Country, Blues, rock, to some original music, you will be sure to have a great time attending a show.

SHOOT TO THRILL
- ALL-FEMALE TRIBUTE TO AC/DC -
Shoot To Thrill includes Kara (vocals), Susan (guitar), Jai (bass), Wendy (guitar) and Kate (drums). Not only are the girls professional musicians with impeccable skills, they are also quite easy on the eyes and full of energy for an entertaining stage show!

The girls decided on AC/DC in particular, because the band's songs are a marriage of compelling music and creative story-telling. The guitar work is intricate yet not overplayed, while the rhythms are driving and dynamic. The silence is as important as the noise, and the lyrics are relatable and captivating. You just HAVE to sing along....or air-guitar….or BOTH!

The girls decided to do a full tribute rather than a cover band, because a tribute is much more challenging. You play many songs by the same artist and really reach inside that artist copying not only their playing style but also their signature stage moves. It's really quite an art and very rewarding when you make it all come together.

Shoot To Thrill is based out of Raleigh, NC and tours all along the East Coast. The girls look forward to meeting you and rocking you into an unbelievable frenzy of good times!
