The star has earned multiple RIAA platinum and gold certifications for his hit albums and singles. They are: “Yeah” – GOLD Single; “Sunny and 75” – GOLD Single; “Gimme That Girl” – GOLD Single; “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” – GOLD Single, III – GOLD Album; Man with a Memory – PLATINUM Album. The Peoria Area favorite – Stone Cold Cowboys – will open the show!

More events surrounding Park-A-Palooza will be announced in the coming weeks. The weekend will surely be a “must-have” on everyone’s summer schedule.
