Roots and Boots, Three Stages, Aaron Tippon, Joe Diffie, Sammy Kershaw
A legendary trio of country veterans gets back to the roots of their music with stories and songs. With over one hundred songs on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, forty-two top singles and fourteen #1 songs between them, good buddies Aaron Tippon, Joe Diffie and Sammy Kershaw perform on stage together in an acoustic evening filled with "You've Got To Stand For Something," "John Deere Green," "She Don't Know She's Beautiful," and so many more.
Joe Diffie, the subject of Country superstar Jason Aldean's new song "1994," is happy to be in the spotlight again, in "a whole song that pays homage to the man who dominated country radio..." It's a song that's "all about Diffie" to which Diffie noted "It's really an honor. It's kind of flattering..."
Remarking on the continuing success of the tour to Billboard.com, Sammy Kershaw says that "the audience gets to see a lighter side of the artists,...but they come for the music, and nobody leaves unsatisfied". With all three artists on stage at the same time, there's time to goof off, talk and tell stories; the audience gets to see their personalities more than in a standard concert format. Here each artist sings a hit song, and then they start over again, with stories along the way. Every show is unique ? with a song list that changes every night.
Roots and Boots will perform in Three Stages on Monday, March 18 and Tuesday, March 19, at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $39-$55. Premium tickets are available for $65; they may be purchased online at www.threestages.net or from Three Stages Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Three Stages is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street.
These veteran entertainers also fully appreciate the talents of each other. According to an interview in Billboard.com, Kershaw "thinks the tour is working so well because of the unique vocal styles of the three men on stage." "I think that's what we all loved about country music. We had stylists. I think Joe Diffie is the greatest country singer in Nashville. When you hear Aaron Tippin on the radio, you know exactly who it is. And, he can deliver those songs like nobody else. I am such a fan of his. He's a great live singer. Some singers have great records, but can't sing live. That's the truth."
