Carson Valley Inn spokesman Bill Henderson said there will be six to nine concerts this year at TJ’s Corral this summer. This will be the third full concert series at the Minden, Nevada, venue.

wynonnaWynonna Judd began her recording career in the 1980s singing in a duo with her mother, Naomi Judd. The Judds had 14 No. 1 singles. After the Judds disbanded, the daughter dropped her last name and went solo. She’s been nominated for Grammy Awards four times. Now she is recording as Wynonna & The Big Noise, which is her backing quartet led by Wynonna’s husband and drummer Cactus Moser.

In 2016, the eponymous album Wynonna & The Big Noise was released.

The Marshall Tucker Band was the vanguard of Southern rock music after it signed with Capricorn Records in 1973. But like the name of one of its best-selling album, the band from Spartanburg, South Carolina, has had a “Long Hard Ride.” Lead singer Doug Gray is the remaining original member.

The band created a unique sound. It has jazz and blues played with rock and roll instruments plus a flute. The regional storylines were sung in a comfortable and honest pitch with Gray’s Southern drawl.

The Marshall Tucker Band has numerous iconic songs, such as “Searching for a Rainbow,” “This Ol’ Cowboy,” “Can’t You See,” “I’ll Be Lovin’ You,” “Fire on the Mountain” “Heard it in a Love Song,” and Gray’s anthemic “Ramblin’ Man.”

Before an appearance last year at Lake Tahoe, Gray told Tahoe Onstage he “handpicked” each band member.

“I have some new guys in the band who can help sing,” he said. “Some of them sing better than I did in the beginning.”

The drummer, B.B. Borden, played with Mother’s Finest when it toured with the Rolling Stones. Marcus Henderson of Macon, Georgia, plays flute, saxophone and keyboards. Spartanburg’s Pat Elwood and Rick Willis play bass and lead guitar, respectively. Guitarist Chris Hicks has been with the band for most of the last 28 years.
