First up, country music star Vince Gill will stop at the Des Moines Civic Center 8 p.m. Friday as part of his current tour. The Grammy Award winner will perform songs from his current album, “Okie,” along with other hits from his 20-album career.
Over the years, Gill has received impressive accolades, including 18 Country Music Association awards and 22 Grammys. He also performed with the Eagles at one time, stepping in after Glenn Frey died. Now, the Country Music Hall of Famer is back on a solo tour. Tickets for the Des Moines concert are available here.
Also on Friday, the rock band Drive-By Truckers will perform at Hoyt Sherman Place following the June release of their newest album, “Welcome 2 Club XIII.” Hailing from Athens, Georgia, the group takes inspiration from a mix of genres including country, blues and even pop-punk. There won’t be a set list for the performance, so expect to hear songs from any one of their last 14 albums. Tickets are still available here.
