Ty Herndon, Grammy nominated and Dove award-winning contemporary country music artist, is the next act to perform unplugged at Canyon Lake POA’s Concerts at the Lodge. The concert will be held on Saturday, Sept. 9 in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge.
Tickets are $25 for general admission: $50 for reserved VIP seats. Doors open at 6:30. Tickets available through the POA website and at Member Services at the POA office.
Ty has a career spanning two decades. He’s charted 17 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Song chart with five million albums sold. His 20-year music career resulted in four number one smash hits: “What Mattered Most,” “Living in the Moment,” “It Must Be Love” and “Loved Too Much.”
In 2010, Ty received a Grammy award nomination in the Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album category for “Journey On.” He also received a Dove award that same year for Best Bluegrass Recorded Song for “When We Fly.”
In 2016, Ty released his latest album, “House of Fire.” The album is a collection of 12 songs that shows a deeper, greater strength from a man who has been there and back and lived to tell about it. The album received critical accolades from the Nashville music community as well as USA Today, Rolling Stone Country and Huffington Post.
Ty, a philanthropist at heart, has donated his time to Make a Wish, St Jude, Feed the Children and GLAAD, to name a few. One of his most recent acts of giving back was lending his vocals on the tribute track “Hands.” The single is a musical tribute to the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida.
Doug Schultz, the Canyon Lake resident and producer of Concerts at the Lodge, first met Ty Herndon in the late 90s when Ty performed at 4th & B, a 2,000 capacity concert hall in the Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego that Doug managed.
“Ty was an up and coming artist at the time who had a few hits plus a number one single, “What Mattered Most,” and the audience loved him.” said Doug. “He told me he was born in Meridian, Mississippi, but was raised just across the state line in his parents hometown of Butler, Alabama.”
Doug, who is currently the concert manager for KSON Country 97.3 FM San Diego said, “For years we played Ty Herndon on air, he was one of the most requested artists.”
The Ty Herndon concert will be an up front and personal acoustic performance. “It means the show will use instruments to produce sound through acoustic means as opposed to electric guitars or other instruments, and it gives the Canyon Lake audience that VIP private party feel,” said Doug.
Local singer-songwriter Lance Allen will be the opening act. He’ll take the stage at 7:30 p.m.
The final Concert at the Lodge concert will be held Saturday, Nov. 4 and will feature rock and blues legend Rick Derringer. Tickets for this show are also on sale no through the POA. During the final concert, Doug will be announcing the Concert at the Lodge series line-up for the 2018.
