This year’s Placer County Fair theme, “Country Days and Racin’ Ways,” inspired a Country Concert/Party co-billed by Eddie Bush and Brodie Stewart on Saturday, June 22, at 7 p.m on the Mahan Stage.
Bush picked up his first guitar when he was 4 years old. Touring with renowned guitarist Eric Johnson and opening for artists such as Keith Urban, Ted Nugent, Sammy Hagar, Heart, Alison Krauss, Eddie Money, REO Speedwagon, Jefferson Starship, Georgia Satellites, Montgomery Gentry, Steve Morse, Delbert McClinton, Little River Band, and Charlie Daniels helped prepare Bush for the national recognition he would receive from his 9/11 anthem “Spirit of America.”
As part of the trio, One Flew South, with collaborations from award-winning songwriters JD Souther, Darrell Scott and Marcus Hummon, Bush debuted his first album “Last of the Good Guys,” which produced the Billboard Hot Country single “My Kind of Beautiful.
In late 2011, Bush released his first holiday album “Holiday Harmonies” and in 2012 the album “Calloused Hands.”
“I live my life in and around music. It’s all I’ve ever known,” said Bush. “The biggest reward is the energy I receive from all the effort that goes in to each project and performance. Music is an evolution. The path isn’t always planned, but it is straight ahead.”
Stewart grew up in Northern California and, as a teenager, he formed and fronted the Southern rock band, Moon Dog Mane which charted on Billboard.
While working on tracks for his own country music band, Stewart also wrote and produced songs for various other artists such as Enrique Iglesias, Reamonn, Flipsyde, Cinema Bizarre and Rachael Page.
“I’ve found my place in country music where my heart has always wanted to be. The great lyrics, honesty and passion in country music is what I love the most,” said Stewart.
The concert will be held at the Placer County Fairgrounds, 800 All America City Boulevard in Roseville on June 22. The performance is from 6 to 9 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7 p.m. Admission to the event is $10, which includes admission to the Placer County Fair. Parking is $5.
