Born and raised on a farm near Paris, Missouri, Becky Blackaby was always entertaining her family. It wasn't until after college that Becky finally came to the realization she could actually have a career in something she truly loved...singing and performing. Later, Becky began writing her own songs and in late 2010, released her first single on the Country Breakout™ Chart.
Playing with the same band mates since 2010, Becky’s band helped form the sound of “Kelly's Got a Boyfriend,” her co-written single which has received airplay on over 80 stations across the country.
Come out to the Clara Eitman Messmer Amphitheatre in Hermann on August 15 to see her in concert. To learn more about Becky Blackaby, visit her website.

Wildwood Springs Lodge welcomes the New Riders of the Purple Sage to their Wildwood Concert Series, Sep. 29, 6 p.m.-10 p.m.
The New Riders of the Purple sage, signed to Columbia Records by Clive Davis, released its eponymous first album in September 1971 to widespread acclaim. In the next 11 years the band toured and released over 12 albums, selling over 4 million records.
NRPS began as a part-time spin-off from the Grateful Dead when Jerry Garcia (pedal steel guitar), Phil Lesh (bass) and Mickey Hart (drums) teamed up with John Dawson (guitar, vocals) and David Nelson (guitar). Although early live appearances were viewed as an informal warm-up to the main attraction, the group quickly established an independent identity through the strength of Dawson's original songs.
By 1970 Dave Torbert had replaced Lesh, and Spencer Dryden, formerly of Jefferson Airplane, had joined as the group's permanent drummer. Garcia remained in both The Dead and The New Riders until he found himself overcommitted, at which time Buddy Cage replaced him and the classic NRPS lineup was born.
