In a reflection of art copying life, fun. lead singer Nate Ruess, guitarist Jack Antonoff, and fellow songwriter/instrumentalist Andrew Dost are getting real familiar with packing up their stuff and keeping track of well-worn suitcases, living the lyrics and storylines in two of their hit videos.
With a tour schedule that packs in 60-plus dates in 13 countries between now and October, fun. is busy bringing their brand of good times to appreciative fans. Wherever they go these days, the Grammy-winning group (2012 Best New Artist and Song of the Year) is playing to audiences who are raising their hands high and clapping in unison to feel-good ballads like "We Are Young" and "Carry On."
With 13 million singles sold and more than 71 million views of the "Some Nights" video, fun. is feeling and sounding great. Plus, the band just collected honors for Top Rock Artist at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
C'mon, you've always wanted to hoot it up with a master cowboy yodeler. To see Wylie Gustafson live in concert is to hold your breath, wondering when this man will take his next one, as serious yodels spice up his repertoire. With 17 albums under his belt, Gustafson redefines country and Western music.
Transferring the art of yodeling from the edelweiss-covered mountains of Austria to the American mainstream, Gustafson calls out everything from the official lullaby of Montana to the signature triad-tone Yahoo! yodel. Frequently referring to the vocal art form as "a fun factor" and calling himself "The Yodeling Fool," Gustafson is keeping the high art of the yodel alive in the 21st century.
Guitar in hand, sporting a bolo tie and Buddy Holly spectacles, with a wide-brimmed cowboy hat perched atop his gangly form, he's comfortable with a guitar in hand. He's just as comfortable holding the reins. Montana-based Gustafson is the real deal -- a working ranchman, trainer, and award-winning horseman. Gustafson shares his time between music road tours, Grand Ole Opry gigs, county fairs, and riding horses at his Cross Three Quarter Horse Ranch.
