Sammy Kershaw stages ‘icy’ concert

Jun 11, 2001 12:58 AM

Country heartthrob Sammy Kershaw will be the first headliner to perform at Santa Fe Station when he hosts one show at 8 p.m., Saturday. Kershaw will perform in the ice arena, which will be converted to a 2,000-seat concert hall for the first time. Tickets are $19.95, $27.50 and $32.50 (plus tax) and are available through, and any Station Casinos Boarding Pass Rewards Center.

Kershaw was born in the heart of Cajun country in Louisiana. New Country Magazine voted him “one of country’s few believable blue-collar performers.” Kershaw’s road to Top 10 stardom was a circuitous one. He worked in a rice mill and at Wal-Mart, learned welding and worked as a dry cleaner before hitting it big in 1991 with Cadillac Style. In nine years, he has recorded hit after hit, including She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful, Love of My Life, The Queen of My Double-Wide Trailer, and the raucous, good ol’ boy tune, Vidalia, with an outrageous premise and clever word play about the famous onion. His most recent CD, Maybe Not Tonight, received good reviews and continues to chart. Kershaw continues to look deep into country’s roots and its diversity to create his music, and his shows traditionally are a “good old time.”

Tickets for Sammy Kershaw at Santa Fe Station are available through, any Station Casinos Boarding Pass Rewards Center, the hotel front desk and at each of Stations properties, including Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset, The Reserve, Fiesta, and Barley’s Casino in Henderson.
