SHERIDAN — One of country music’s biggest stars is coming to the King of Cowboy towns Sunday night.

Alan Jackson, known for such number one hits as “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Don’t Rock the Jukebox” and “Country Boy” will play the Trails End Concert Park Sunday night. He has won two Grammy Awards, sold 60 million albums worldwide and topped the singles chart 35 times.

“I think it is a huge deal for Sheridan,” said Stormy Redman, event coordinator for Trails End. “I don’t think anyone expected us to pull off a (big) name like this.”

Though he often plays large venues accommodating tens of thousands, the Trails End Concert Park holds a maximum of 6,000 people, making it a more intimate concert experience for fans.

“There is not a bad seat in the house,” Redman said.

Redman added that tickets are going fast, but fans can purchase them at the gate the night of the concert if any remain.

“They are going phenomenal,” Redman said of ticket sales. “We expected a great turnout. I think this is the show we are expecting our biggest turnout for.”

Tickets are $50 for general admission and $80 for reserved seating, which are rows seven through 15. Gates open at 4 p.m. and every ticket holder needs to bring their own chair for the show. Country musician Craig Campbell will open for Jackson at 6 p.m.
