Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw, and Collin Raye are making a stop at Mahnomen’s Shooting Star Casino this Friday, and if you’re a fan of ’90s and early 2000s country, you won’t want to miss it.

Sammy Kershaw released his debut album Don’t Go Near the Water in 1991 and has since dropped nine other albums (three earned a platinum certification and two earned a gold certification), and has had 25 songs enter the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Song charts, including No. 1 hit “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful,” “Anywhere But Here,” and “Queen of My Double-Wide Trailer.”

Aaron Tippin, whose phrasing has been compared to that of Hank Williams, has had more than 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Music charts, with five Top 10 hits including “You’ve Got to Stand for Something,” “I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way,” and No. 1 hit, “Working Man’s Ph.D.” Five of Tippin’s albums are certified gold and another, “Read Between The Lines,” was certified platinum.

Collin Raye, over the past three decades, has released seven No. 1 singles, five platinum-certified albums and one gold-certified album. His Top 10 hits include “Every Second,” “Love, Me,” “In This Life,” and “My Kind of Girl.”

Altogether, the three artists have had over 100 charted songs, which means no matter what songs they play, this intimate, acoustic show is sure to be an entertaining time that brings you back. Purchase a $20 ticket for the event here and if you’re traveling from the Twin Cities, make sure to book a room and make a night of it.
