Big news, Creek family. Get ready for a monumental night in 2024 with three of your favorite acts right in your own backyard.
Moonhanger Group and Mammoth proudly present the Turnpike Troubadours at the Macon Amphitheater on April 27, 2024. The “Red Dirt” country supergroup will headline the evening with support from The Red Clay Strays along with national and local favorite, Grammy nominee Brent Cobb.
“100.9 The Creek and Moonhanger Presents are very excited to be a part of this concert in partnership with Mammoth,” Moonhanger President Wes Griffith says. “We’ve been working for months to make a contribution to the opening of our newest and biggest Central Georgia concert venue. If you told me several years ago that we’d be promoting a concert at a 10,000 capacity amphitheater with three core artists played on The Creek, I would have said you were crazy! I’ve always tried to share my love of American roots music with anyone I can. It’s incredible to be doing it on such a big scale and in such an impactful way for our community.”

Since returning from the “indefinite hiatus” they announced back in 2019, the Turnpike Troubadours have lit up every venue they’ve played from Red Rocks to Rochester and anywhere in between. A few years of respite and resetting might have been just what the doctor ordered for the group, not to mention the pent-up demand for shows the break created among their devoted fanbase. Their new album Cat in the Rain, produced by Shooter Jennings, finds the band at their best with a spirit of true camaraderie and absolute musical magic. Fans should prepare to have their expectations of the beloved group exceeded during this night of old favorites and sure-to-be new ones.
The Red Clay Strays are also having quite a moment thanks to the viral juggernaut of a performance video floating around TikTok and their 2022 single “Wondering Why” now sitting in the Top 15 on the iTunes Country Charts. The seasoned band has made major festival appearances at HWY 30 Fest, Bonnaroo, Peacemaker Festival, Under the Big Sky, Mile-0 Fest, Lollapalooza, and CMA Fest, as well as opening for esteemed acts including Kip Moore, Nikki Lane, Old Crow Medicine Show, Paul Cauthen, Brothers Osborne, and The Steel Woods. Throughout their 2023 tenure of live performances, the band has rightfully continued to garner industry attention by touring alongside notable hit-makers such as Elle King, Dierks Bentley, and Eric Church.
Brent Cobb is no stranger to Macon. In fact, he may just be the historic music city’s best and brightest new ambassador. With his latest album Southern Star perfectly weaving threads of soul, country, roots, funk, and rock together, the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter is on the precipice of single-handedly both reviving and reinventing the signature sound once brought forth by the legendary Capricorn Records family for a modern generation. He recorded the chart-topping project in the hallowed rooms of the Capricorn Sound Studios and used local Macon musicians to make it all happen. Cobb has written hits for everyone from Luke Bryan to Miranda Lambert to Kenny Chesney and even Little Big Town. His major-label debut Shine on Rainy Day was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. He’s toured extensively with Chris Stapleton and Luke Bryan and recently sold out three shows at the Capitol Theatre and Capricorn Sound Studios.
