Special Guest JD & The Straight Shot
Legendary artist Don Henley is set to perform at Ruth Eckerd Hall with special guest JD & The Straight Shot! Both as a solo artist and as a member of the Eagles, Don Henley has received many accolades, including eight GRAMMY® Awards, numerous gold and platinum records and performed sold-out concert tours worldwide. A respected, popular and critically celebrated musical artist, Henley is a founding member, vocalist and songwriter of the Eagles, one of the most influential bands in America. Henley’s solo career is acclaimed with such hits as Dirty Laundry, Heart Of The Matter, Boys Of Summer, The End Of The Innocence and All She Wants To Do Is Dance. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 and will receive the 2015 Kennedy Center honors later this year, as a member of the Eagles.
Americana band JD & The Straight Shot has been touring nonstop in support of their highly acclaimed 2016 all-acoustic album Ballyhoo! and are currently working on their forthcoming release due out in early 2017. In addition to hitting the road with Don Henley, the band has played alongside luminaries such as Joe Walsh, Keith Urban, the Dixie Chicks, Jewel, the Eagles and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. New England Music News raves, “Awesome is the word” for JD & The Straight Shot’s live show, with Encore Magazine agreeing that it’s a “Foot-stompin’ good time!”
