MULTI-PLATINUM country group BLACKHAWK to perform in Gays Mills
MULTI-PLATINUM country group BLACKHAWK to perform in Gays Mills THIS SUMMER at the 2015 #StumpDodgerBash! Along with third founding member Van Stephenson, Henry Paul and Dave Robbins exploded onto the country music landscape in 1993 with their self-titled album and top 10 hit single “Goodbye Says It All.” Three more hit singles followed (“Every Once In A While,” “I Sure Can Smell The Rain” and “That’s Just About Right”), propelling the album to platinum status. They maintained that pace in the years that followed, scoring a dozen top ten hits, including two number ones, while selling more than seven million records. Tragedy struck in 1999 when Van was diagnosed with melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer. After a long and courageous fight, Van lost his battle in 2001. Henry and Dave honored his dying wish that BlackHawk continue to make great music and fight for a cure. This past year, the Nashville band released their first album in over a decade, titled “Brothers of the Southland”! BlackHawk’s performance will kick off at 10:00pm on July 4th. For tickets and campsites, call 608-735-4929 or visit stumpdodgerbash.com. The Stump Dodger Bash is Kickapoo Valley’s premier country music event held annually at the Kickapoo Stump Dodger Campground in picturesque Gays Mills, Wisconsin. Enjoy live music, great food, family fun and fireworks! Come home to Gays Mills this summer…
