Summer Concert Coming To Ft. Sill
The annual summer concert is returning to the Polo Field at Fort Sill, and this year, its gonna be as country as it gets! On June 25th, MCA Nashville and Grammy-nominated recording artist David Nail, along with former 'The Voice' season 3 winner and recent #1 artist Cassadee Pope and former 'Nashville' stars Charles Esten and Claire Bowen will take the stage on Ft. Sill's legendary polo field for this year's annual Summer Concert.
With the forthcoming release of his next album Fighter, David Nail will be primed to headline this years Summer Concert. Nail, who's most recent single "Night's On Fire" has become the 4th top-10 his career, will be bringing his energetic stage show to the Polo Field. Nail, who's hot "Whatever She Wants" was ranked by Billboard Magazine as the third most popular song of 2013, has been in the studio the past few months putting the finishing touches on Fighter, his fourth studio album, and the accompanying tour.
Charles "Chip" Esten is best known as Deacon Claybourne from the television series 'Nashville'. But the recently cancelled series wasn't his first foray into music, as he made his professional debut as the host of the British television version of Whose Line Is It Anyway. When the series came stateside, Drew Carey was installed as host, but Esten made several appearances as a panelist on the show, which led to a guest starring role on 'The Drew Carey Show'. From there he went on to appear in the movie 61* as Roger Maris' son Kevin. He has appeared on numerous television series, including Married With Children, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek Voyager, The Mentalist and The Office. From 2012 to 2016 he appeared on 'Nashville", often contributing to the soundtrack.
Another 'Nashville' alumnus, Clare Bowen will also be performing at Ft. Sill on June 25th. Bowen, who played Scarlett O'Connor on the series, was also a frequent contributor to the series' soundtrack. A TV star in her home country of Australia, Bowen's career first began on the stage, performing in The Candidate, Out Town and Peer Gynt among other stage productions. 'Nashville' was Bowen's first American success, and she is currently working on her first album, hoping to parlay that success.
On season 3 of 'The Voice', Blake Shelton helped to transform Cassadee Pope from the lead singer of the punk-pop band Hey Monday, into a country singer who would win the season and score a recording contract with Republic Records Nashville. Her debut solo album Frame By Frame has sold nearly 200,000 copies, and spawned the top-10 hit "Wasting All These Tears". Pope's most recent hit, her duet with Chris Young "Think of You", spent 2 weeks at the top of the Billboard Country Singles chart. With the release of her brand new EP Summer along with her brand new single of the same name, Pope is looking to bring a lot of new music to the Polo Field on June 25th.
