Greg Hager
Song-writer and accomplished musician, Greg Hager offers original songs with a fresh authentic Western flair, from heartwarming to toe-tapping. Ballad-creator and tall-tale originator, Greg presents a musical program that will tickle the ears and inspire the heart. His music and message has a true “western styled” country and gospel focus, and is a delight for all members of the family.

An authentic Dakota-grown talent, Greg is making a name for his original music:
  • 2017 Entertainer of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • 2017 Artist of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • 2017 Album of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • Nominated for seven years in a row as the Western Artist of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists
  • In the Valley Below album nominated as the Western Album of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists, and the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association.
  • In the Valley Below album was also named the Country Album of the Year with the Rural Roots Music Association.
  • Greg’s single, Cowboy Dreaming, was nominated as the Western Song of the Year by the AWA
  • Songwriter for such noted country musicians as Royal Wade Kimes, who cut Greg’s single Cowboy Dreaming on his 2015 release called Shadows of Time.
  • Greg is a proud member of the Academy of Western Artists (AWA), the Western Music Association (WMA), and especially the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association (PCCAA).

His rural western roots run deep, and he writes and sings about the life he knows and lives. Valuable lessons about honesty, integrity, and keeping your word—no matter what—were instilled at an early age, and form the backdrop of his musical perspective. Those values are timeless and resonate with everyone, which is why so many identify strongly with his music.

Worldwide, Hager’s music is making a difference. He regularly sells music in over a dozen countries. He has made two tours of Japan – performing only his original western, country, cowboy, and Gospel songs.
Musically, Hager writes everything that he sings and his style is heavily influenced by other great 12-string guitar pickers and story-tellers. His style is described as “Easy-going, melodic, and clever” relating to more traditional Country and Western music prior to the pop-culture influences.

Greg looks forward to adventures on the road. Chris LeDoux said it best, “Life IS a ride!” and Greg relishes the opportunities to meet and work with people across the globe. The epitome of a professional both on the stage and off, he is family friendly and a cowboy gentleman.

A Nashville-produced musician, Hager has recorded and released seven CD’s of 100% original music. In fact, he is the only artist in North Dakota history to do so. Four of his albums are “positive” Western-styled country songs, one Christmas album bringing joy to the holidays, and two albums of Country Gospel music that bring the “Good News” to song.

He is married with three children and lives in southeast North Dakota, near the family homestead.

John Johansen Celtic Guitar
The best description I could give myself as a musician is a hobby guitarist who enjoys playing for family, friends and occasionally at church. I have always been a big fan of traditional Scottish, Irish and Celtic music but it has only been in the last two years that I began to study this style of guitar. I am fascinated with the alternate tunings incorporated in this music and have enjoyed learning the history behind many of the songs.

My own personal story started about 10 years ago when I began taking guitar lessons from Nedra Millburn in Cedar Rapids. With Nedra I had the opportunity to learn a variety of music styles and to participate in local and regional music contests. In 2015 I met Dave Paris and began taking guitar lessons from him in Marion. Dave's teaching has helped me to grow musically from the good foundation I received from Nedra. Since starting to explore the Celtic guitar genre I have been learning and playing fingerstyle guitar arrangements written by Jim Tozier, El McMeen and Stephen Wake.

Playing in the Linn County Fair Free Entertainment Tent this summer will be a new experience. I look forward to sharing the Celtic music I have so much enjoyed learning.

Greg Hager
Song-writer and accomplished musician, Greg Hager offers original songs with a fresh authentic Western flair, from heartwarming to toe-tapping. Ballad-creator and tall-tale originator, Greg presents a musical program that will tickle the ears and inspire the heart. His music and message has a true “western styled” country and gospel focus, and is a delight for all members of the family.
An authentic Dakota-grown talent, Greg is making a name for his original music:
  • 2017 Entertainer of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • 2017 Artist of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • 2017 Album of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • Nominated for seven years in a row as the Western Artist of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists
  • In the Valley Below album nominated as the Western Album of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists, and the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association.
  • In the Valley Below album was also named the Country Album of the Year with the Rural Roots Music Association.
  • Greg’s single, Cowboy Dreaming, was nominated as the Western Song of the Year by the AWA
  • Songwriter for such noted country musicians as Royal Wade Kimes, who cut Greg’s single Cowboy Dreaming on his 2015 release called Shadows of Time.
  • Greg is a proud member of the Academy of Western Artists (AWA), the Western Music Association (WMA), and especially the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association (PCCAA).
His rural western roots run deep, and he writes and sings about the life he knows and lives. Valuable lessons about honesty, integrity, and keeping your word—no matter what—were instilled at an early age, and form the backdrop of his musical perspective. Those values are timeless and resonate with everyone, which is why so many identify strongly with his music.
Worldwide, Hager’s music is making a difference. He regularly sells music in over a dozen countries. He has made two tours of Japan – performing only his original western, country, cowboy, and Gospel songs.
Musically, Hager writes everything that he sings and his style is heavily influenced by other great 12-string guitar pickers and story-tellers. His style is described as “Easy-going, melodic, and clever” relating to more traditional Country and Western music prior to the pop-culture influences.
Greg looks forward to adventures on the road. Chris LeDoux said it best, “Life IS a ride!” and Greg relishes the opportunities to meet and work with people across the globe. The epitome of a professional both on the stage and off, he is family friendly and a cowboy gentleman.
A Nashville-produced musician, Hager has recorded and released seven CD’s of 100% original music. In fact, he is the only artist in North Dakota history to do so. Four of his albums are “positive” Western-styled country songs, one Christmas album bringing joy to the holidays, and two albums of Country Gospel music that bring the “Good News” to song.
He is married with three children and lives in southeast North Dakota, near the family homestead.

Damascus Road Gospel Band
Southern gospel music is the heart of Damascus Road.  The Lord brought together the members of our group because we each have a passionate fire to reach a lost and hurting world by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through song.  
We know music is a powerful vehicle that God uses to open hearts and change lives.  Each of us in Damascus Road has experienced that life changing power first hand and it continues to work in us, even today.  We have overcome additions, fear, broken relationships and loss through the power of Jesus Christ.  We know, without Him, each of our stories would have turned out very differently.
"My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul."  Psalm 108:1

Greg looks forward to adventures on the road. Chris LeDoux said it best, “Life IS a ride!” and Greg relishes the opportunities to meet and work with people across the globe. The epitome of a professional both on the stage and off, he is family friendly and a cowboy gentleman.
A Nashville-produced musician, Hager has recorded and released seven CD’s of 100% original music. In fact, he is the only artist in North Dakota history to do so. Four of his albums are “positive” Western-styled country songs, one Christmas album bringing joy to the holidays, and two albums of Country Gospel music that bring the “Good News” to song.
He is married with three children and lives in southeast North Dakota, near the family homestead.

 I got my first guitar from my mom on my 12th birthday and I have loved it ever since! I began to use music as my outlet to give me a break from the hustle and bustle of life.

Sunday Morning Church Service featuring Greg Hager
Song-writer and accomplished musician, Greg Hager offers original songs with a fresh authentic Western flair, from heartwarming to toe-tapping. Ballad-creator and tall-tale originator, Greg presents a musical program that will tickle the ears and inspire the heart. His music and message has a true “western styled” country and gospel focus, and is a delight for all members of the family.
An authentic Dakota-grown talent, Greg is making a name for his original music:
  • 2017 Entertainer of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • 2017 Artist of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • 2017 Album of the Year Nominee with the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association
  • Nominated for seven years in a row as the Western Artist of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists
  • In the Valley Below album nominated as the Western Album of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists, and the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association.
  • In the Valley Below album was also named the Country Album of the Year with the Rural Roots Music Association.
  • Greg’s single, Cowboy Dreaming, was nominated as the Western Song of the Year by the AWA
  • Songwriter for such noted country musicians as Royal Wade Kimes, who cut Greg’s single Cowboy Dreaming on his 2015 release called Shadows of Time.
  • Greg is a proud member of the Academy of Western Artists (AWA), the Western Music Association (WMA), and especially the Pro Cowboy Country Artist Association (PCCAA).
His rural western roots run deep, and he writes and sings about the life he knows and lives. Valuable lessons about honesty, integrity, and keeping your word—no matter what—were instilled at an early age, and form the backdrop of his musical perspective. Those values are timeless and resonate with everyone, which is why so many identify strongly with his music.
Worldwide, Hager’s music is making a difference. He regularly sells music in over a dozen countries. He has made two tours of Japan – performing only his original western, country, cowboy, and Gospel songs.
Musically, Hager writes everything that he sings and his style is heavily influenced by other great 12-string guitar pickers and story-tellers. His style is described as “Easy-going, melodic, and clever” relating to more traditional Country and Western music prior to the pop-culture influences.
Greg looks forward to adventures on the road. Chris LeDoux said it best, “Life IS a ride!” and Greg relishes the opportunities to meet and work with people across the globe. The epitome of a professional both on the stage and off, he is family friendly and a cowboy gentleman.
A Nashville-produced musician, Hager has recorded and released seven CD’s of 100% original music. In fact, he is the only artist in North Dakota history to do so. Four of his albums are “positive” Western-styled country songs, one Christmas album bringing joy to the holidays, and two albums of Country Gospel music that bring the “Good News” to song.

Beau Timmerman performing
Beau Timmerman performing in the Coors Light Pavilion brought to you by Altorfer's Ag & Rental

From grunge to power ballads to your favorite bar-stool country anthems, Beau Timmerman's musical footprint stretches for miles. But it always stays true to his northeast Iowa roots.

As the front man for Bad Habits for five years, the lead guitarist for 17Candle for the better part of a decade, and an award-winning jazz guitarist, Beau has come a long way from his first performances at churches, hospitals, and with the local bluegrass band in Strawberry Point. With 17 Candle, he's played at the Orange Bowl and the Sundance Film Festival. He's shared the stage with 3 Dog Night, Tantric, Kansas, the Little River Band, Whey Jennings, and Tracy Lawrence. He's had songs featured on Delta Airlines' in-flight radio station and a Google smartphone. 17 Candle was also selected to play the halftime show of the 2010 Capital One Bowl halftime show where 2 of their songs were featured in front of 60,000 people.

Today, Beau takes his versatile solo show on the road for 100-120 performances a year. And whether he's got the distortion pedal in high gear or he's strumming and humming his way through an acoustic set, you never know exactly what Beau's got up his sleeve next. But you know damn well that it'll be good.
