Gavin DeGraw and David Cook to perform Nov. 11
Platinum record-selling musicians Gavin DeGraw and David Cook
will perform at Appalachian State University Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. in Farthing Auditorium.
The Los Angeles-based band Carolina Liar will be the opening act.
The concert is sponsored by Appalachian Popular Programming Society, a student-run organization that brings entertainment to Appalachian’s campus. The public is invited.
Tickets are on sale now at Farthing Auditorium and can be purchased online at pas.appstate.edu. Tickets are $18 for students and $22 for guests and at the door.
DeGraw will perform new material off his highly anticipated fourth album, “Sweeter.” Entertainment Weekly describes the first single “Not Over You,” which debuted “most added” on the Hot AC format, as “a soulful majestic ballad,” and People Magazine declares the “hot single” as his “welcome return” to the airwaves.
DeGraw first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, “Chariot,” which sold more than 1 million copies, earned platinum certification and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through” and the title track “Chariot.”
Cook is touring in support of “This Loud Morning” (19 Recordings/RCA Records), which was released in June. The first single, “The Last Goodbye,” was met by rave reviews and Cook’s second single, “Fade Into Me,” will be released to coincide with the tour.
After winning the American Idol crown in season seven, Cook went on to sell more than 1 million copies of his self-titled debut album and set out on a yearlong nationwide tour in support of his multiple hit singles.
Carolina Liar returns to the music scene with its newest album, “Wild Blessed Freedom.” The band was praised by Rolling Stone for “fusing the anthemic elements of U2 and the Killers with the electro production of Swedish pop maestro Max Martin.”
