Breckenridge Ski Resort recently announced the lineup for the Bud Light Free Concert Series, part of its annual Breck Spring Fever Festival. The four concerts will include big-name, national acts Third Eye Blind, Eric Paslay, American Authors and The Infamous Stringdusters.
“We’re extremely excited to bring our guests another fantastic lineup of live, national acts to celebrate the end of the ski season this year,” said Phill Metz, Breck’s director of marketing. “We are thrilled about the great mix of bands that we’re bringing in, which for the first time ever includes a country headliner. This gives all our guests another great reason to visit one more time before the end of the season.”
Breck’s Spring Fever Festival, the largest spring skiing party in the Rocky Mountain region, begins the weekend of Friday, March 20, with the GoPro Big Mountain Challenge and continues through closing day, Sunday, April 19, with a series of signature events including competitions and kids’ events in addition to the free concerts.
ABOUT THE MUSIC
Third Eye Blind over the past few years has developed a proud story of a band that feels alive in live performance. The intensity of the band’s fans attests to the energy this group creates. Third Eye Blind shows are about taking a moment to sing loud and remember you’re alive, and it’s a sight to see from the stage or the audience. The band has been jamming in advance of recording its new album, so this tour will see a band at its most confident in its efforts to discover new ways every night to surprise and transcend.
Eric Paslay is a charismatic performer and powerful vocalist who knows how to connect with an audience. His singles “Friday Night” and “Song About A Girl” were chart-topping hits, and his current single “She Don’t Love You” is steadily climbing while gaining massive critical acclaim. Not only an artist, he’s a sought-after songwriter, crafting No. 1 singles for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Love & Theft and Eli Young Band. Paslay’s musical talents are best showcased during his live performances, where he sings his songs and commands the stage with one of the most remarkable voices in country music.
Self-described “laid-back dudes,” American Authors is composed of Zac Barnett (vocals), James Adam Shelley (guitar/banjo), Dave Rublin (bass) and Matt Sanchez (drums). Together, they hail from the four corners of the country, each bringing his own influences and experiences to the writing table to create pop-flavored alt-rock sprinkled with four-part harmonies, spirited lyrics and contagious optimism.
The Infamous Stringdusters have proven they can both mine the past and look forward to the unknown, and their new album is a touchstone for a group of tightly bonded musicians completely comfortable with one another and their collective identity. Perhaps the sentiment is best summarized through five joined voices in the mountaintop gospel-hued title track of “Let It Go,” their most recent album: “If it’s worry you’ve been feeling over things you can’t control, it’s time to let it go.”
