“We couldn’t be more excited to reignite Laughlin’s live music scene with this high-profile concert lineup,” said Senior Vice President and General Manager of Aquarius Casino Resort and Edgewater Casino Resort Sean Hammond. “We know Laughlin residents and visitors have been looking forward to the day they’re able to enjoy live music again, and we’re thrilled to be bringing it back in the biggest way possible.”
Miranda Lambert will heat up the Laughlin Event Center stage fresh off the launch of her latest album, “The Marfa Tapes,” with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall. No stranger to taking corners on two-wheels, getting into – and out of – trouble, Lambert’s massive popularity has been built on laughing at what life hands her and creating authenticity on her own terms. Called “a trailblazing superstar” by Rolling Stone, Lambert broke Merle Haggard’s Academy of Country Music Awards record for most awards – including 35 Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) - including nine ACM Female Vocalist of the Year Awards - 14 Country Music Association Awards, three GRAMMY Awards, the Harmony Award from the Nashville Symphony, Artist in Residence from the Country Music Hall of Fame, the ACM Gene Weed Milestone Award, ACM Song of the Decade Award, and was named RIAA’s Artist of the Year in 2019.
Lynyrd Skynyrd’s legacy began some 41 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, and halted for a decade by the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band rocks on with original member Gary Rossington joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Johnny Colt, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington and Carol Chase. With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Lynyrd Skynyrd remains a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.
Toby Keith, the familiar maxim of the triple threat – singer, songwriter, musician – doesn't begin to cover it for Toby Keith, one of the modern era's most complete self-directed hit makers. In 2021, he was bestowed the National Medal of Arts to honor his artistic achievements and contributions to the arts and culture of America. In 2018, he celebrated the 25th anniversary of his debut No. 1 single, “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” with the re-release of his remastered debut album with the addition of three vault tracks. From the moment that song was released and shot up the charts to become his first No. 1, the engine driving everything has been the music, which includes writing, arranging and producing it. At the core is his songwriting, as recognized in his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York City. Also in 2018, Keith released a new song, “Don’t Let the Old Man In,” which was inspired by a conversation he had with Clint Eastwood and was later featured in Eastwood’s movie, “The Mule.” Keith's albums have sold more than 40 million copies and his tours have drawn more than a million fans each year for more than a decade straight, with recent expansion into Europe and Australia. Some of his many awards include Artist of the Decade nods from Billboard and the American Country Awards, three-time BMI Country Songwriter and Artist of the Year, as well as the ACM's Career Achievement honor, Poet’s Award recipient, and twice their Entertainer of the Year award winner in back-to-back years. His 11 USO tours to date have enhanced the lives of nearly 256,000 troops and military families in 18 countries with more than 285 events and have been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award in 2014. When a tornado ravaged his hometown, Toby Keith was the face of the community and helped shoulder the cleanup with the 2013 Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, which raised more than $2 million.
Darci Lynne is a singer and ventriloquist, plus the youngest contestant to ever win NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” (AGT), garnering over 87 million views on AGT’s YouTube and the most votes for a final performance in the history of the show.

In 2018, she kicked off her national tour, selling out her first headlining family-friendly show in just six minutes, continually adding shows to meet the overwhelming demand. On the heels of a record-breaking 2020, the gifted Oklahoma-born artist kicked off her national 2021 tour, where she is sharing her passion for performance and bringing her enchanting show from New York to Nevada. This year, Lynne stars in Nickelodeon’s hit show “Unfiltered,” which has been renewed for a second season, and has made appearances in Nickelodeon favorites like “All That,” “The Substitute” and “Side Hustle.” She has rocked the stage on Nickelodeon’s 2021 “Kid’s Choice Awards” and seen on other shows including “America’s Got Talent,” “America’s Got Talent: Champions,” NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” plus talk shows such as Ellen, The Kelly Clarkson Show, and The Today Show.
