French Lick Resort is adding a little bit more sizzle into summer with a summer concert series featuring three major acts.
It all kicks off with a pair of country music’s distinctive voices, with Martina McBride in concert on July 20 followed by Gary Allan on August 17. Grammy Award-winning America will wrap up the series with the final concert on September 21.
All three Saturday shows will be taking the stage in the Hoosier Ballroom in the resort’s Event Center, with all three starting at 8 p.m. and doors opening at 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased via Ticketmaster, or at the French Lick Springs Hotel front desk.
A little bit more behind the music of our featured summer concert series acts:
Saturday, July 20 • 8pm (Doors open at 6pm)
The distinctive voice behind six chart-topping hits, Martina McBride has etched herself a place among country music’s icons. Her musical range is manifested both in her breathtaking sopranic melodies, as well as the vibe within some of her biggest hits — upbeat toe-tappers like “This One’s For the Girls,” uplifting favorites like “Wild Angels” and empowering ballads like “A Broken Wing.” She’s a true renaissance woman with published cookbooks, a Food Network show and a passion for assisting charitable causes. And she remains one of the most respected voices in the industry, evidenced by four wins from the Country Music Association and three Academy of Country Music Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year.
Saturday, August 17• 8pm (Doors open at 6pm)
With the allure of a modern-day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances. Through his 23-year career, Allan has been a frequent visitor to the top of the country charts with No. 1 hits like “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain),” “Nothing On but the Radio,” “Tough Little Boys” and “Man to Man.” Combining Nashville soul and the edge of his native California, Allan’s described as “dark and dreamy” in Entertainment Weekly, “soulful and rough around the edges” in Playboy and a “maverick” by Rolling Stone.

Nearing 50 years making music together, America continues touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound. America became a global household name with their signature song “A Horse With No Name” and followed up that No. 1 hit with more successful singles that covered a wide range of musical terrain — “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Don’t Cross the River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People” and “Sister Golden Hair.” With a Grammy Award and six gold or platinum albums to their credit, America has built a multi-generational fan base and an enduring presence in the classic rock landscape.
