Event Description: GRANDSTAND ANNOUNCEMENT: The Miller Lite Grandstand will rock on July 20, 2012 as Buckcherry will take the stage. The L.A.-based band broke onto the national scene in 1999 with their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, produced by Terry Date and Sex Pistol Steve Jones for DreamWorks Records. They scored with such hit Modern Rock singles as "Lit Up," "Check Your Head" and "For The Movies", and quickly ignited a following of passionate fans craving a return of true rock and roll. "Coming on like the Black Crowes by way of AC/DC," Entertainment Weekly raved, "this L.A.-based band is at its best blasting its way through hard-hitting riff rockers." Melody Maker boasted that BUCKCHERRY is "a band who kicks arse, 'cause that's why God gave us shoes", and Q called the debut "a hugely entertaining record", recognizing the "rumpty-tumpty groove of AC/DC and songs which recall such long-forgotten Sunset Strip bands as Junkyard and Little Caesar". The band "establishes itself in adult Beavis & Butthead country", added Mojo. "It's Riffs R Us." Due to scheduling conflicts, the Easton Corbin performance has now been rescheduled for July 19, 2012.
