There's a new force making major waves in country music, Muscadine Bloodline. Proud natives of Mobile, Alabama, Gary Stanton and Charlie Muncaster started Muscadine Bloodline in early 2016. From the first time they took stage, Nashville started talking.....so now, with two Billboard charting critically acclaimed EP's under their belt, it's no surprise the rest of the music world is quickly catching on. The duo's reputation for high-energy live experiences has resulted in a schedule full of shows spanning from coast to coast. Charlie's contemporary vocals complimented by Gary's harmonies and masterful guitar licks make MB a powerfully refreshing mix of talent, passion and unfiltered authenticity. Infamously undaunted by the big stage, their sound intertwines the brash irreverence of early southern rockers with the selective quality of 90's country love songs. Captivating hooks heard in songs like "Movin' On" and the aggressively anthemic "WD-40" stand as a testament to MB's wide ranging music-making capability. Every song and every show is a moving experience but at the same time, unmistakably Muscadine Bloodline.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa opening new live music dance hall
Track 5. pays tribute to Oklahoma’s rich honky-tonk roots
TULSA, Okla. – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is celebrating the highly anticipated opening of Track 5., Tulsa’s newest live music dance hall.
“The design of Track 5. pays tribute to Oklahoma’s rich honky-tonk roots,” said Martin Madewell, senior director of marketing for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. “Our guests love music, and many are loyal country fans. We are confident Track 5. will become the new local favorite. The national artist lineup and the production caliber of the venue will put Track 5. on the map regionally.”
The new venue is home to a stage designed for live entertainment that accommodates an array of national, regional and local artists. Guests can enjoy a little two-stepping on the 1,200-square-foot, wooden dance floor or pull up to the full-service bar, which features three dozen taps and a vast selection of bourbon. The venue includes a second-floor VIP mezzanine, great for taking in the sounds of country legends or today’s up-and-comers performing on stage.
The lineup through February, a month of free and open-to-the-public shows, includes performances from multiplatinum artist Sammy Kershaw on Feb. 15, followed by three shows from Oklahoma’s own Restless Heart on Feb. 21, Jason Boland and the Stragglers on Feb. 22, and The Swon Brothers on Feb. 23.
“As Hard Rock, it was essential that we designed a venue to deliver an authentic experience that’s all about the music,” said Madewell. “The idea started as an ode to ‘Tulsa Time,’ the fifth track on legend Don Williams’ album ‘Expressions.’ Through this phase, we stumbled upon the bizarre coincidence of an Oklahoma tie embedded on the fifth track on the albums of four other iconic artists. With that discovery, there was no doubt we had the name, Track 5.”
Along with Williams’ “Expressions” album, the four other artists to release albums with a fifth track about Oklahoma or Tulsa include Waylon Jennings’ “The Ramblin’ Man,” Leon Russell’s “Leon Russell and the Shelter People,” George Strait’s “Honkytonkville” and Kenny Rogers’ “Kenny.”
Eric Clapton also recorded “Tulsa Time” for his 1978 album, “Backless.” The following year, Clapton donated one of his guitars to the Hard Rock Cafe in London to hang above his favorite seat at the cafe. That gift launched Hard Rock’s legendary memorabilia collection, which has propelled the brand to worldwide fame.
Track 5. is part of a 65,000-square-foot expansion that started in April 2018. The new, two-level casino features 450 new electronic and table games, Tulsa’s newest poker room and a 7,000-square-foot multipurpose event center. The casino and poker room opened alongside Track 5. on Feb. 1.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. From signature restaurants and gaming to world-class music venues, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa offers award-winning entertainment amenities in Oklahoma.
