Regarding the Beach Boys, the Biltmore release stated, “The Beach Boys have continued to create and perform with the same imagination and style that marked their debut more than 50 years ago.”

Meanwhile, the website www.reasontorock.com said of the Beach Boys, “The Beach Boys are certainly the most important rock group to hail from the United States. At a time when groups such as The Beatles, The Kinks and The Rolling Stones were beginning their careers in Britain, The Beach Boys were really the only comparable American group. The Beach Boys also compare favorably to these British counterparts in terms of the lengths of their recording careers and the breadth of their accomplishments.”

As for the B52s, the release said, “Selling more than 20 million albums worldwide, the Grammy Award-nominated quartet The B-52s have impacted alternative music, fashion and culture over the course of four decades with hits such as ‘Rock Lobster,’ ‘Love Shack’ and ‘Private Idaho.’”

Regarding the Charlie Daniels Band and the Marshall Tucker Band, Biltmore stated, “North Carolina-raised Charlie Daniels made his mark with Southern rock anthems, award-winning country hits and gospel albums. The Charlie Daniels Band’s performance at Biltmore this year is one of over 100 concert dates on the band’s 2019 schedule, coming to the stage with ‘The Devil Went Down to Georgia,’ ‘Long Haired Country Boy,’ ‘The South’s Gonna Do It Again,’ and ‘Uneasy Rider.’ Equal parts rock, blues, jazz, country, soul and bluegrass, the Marshall Tucker Band has a music catalog consisting of more than 20 studio albums including songs like ‘Can’t You See’ and ‘Heard It in a Love Song.’”

As for Chicago, the release said the group “has garnered two Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Chicago street dedicated in their honor. The band hits the South Terrace stage to perform their well-known tunes such as ‘25 or 6 to 4,’ ‘Saturday in the Park,’ ‘Feeling Stronger Every Day’ and many others.”

Regarding The O’Jays and Kool & The Gang, Biltmore noted, “The O’Jays have been performing for over 50 years. Their single ‘Love Train,’ rose to No. 1 on both the R&B Singles and the Billboard Hot 100 charts upon release. Classic R&B hits such as ‘Celebration,’ ‘Cherish’ and ‘Ladies Night’  have earned the Grammy-winning group Kool & The Gang global fame and a following that spans generations.”

As for Amy Grant and Steven Curtis Chapman, the release stated, “Amy Grant is recognizable in both the Christian and pop worlds, selling more than 30 million albums worldwide and receiving six Grammys, a star on both the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the Music City Walk of Fame. Steven Curtis Chapman is the most awarded artist in Christian music history with accolades such as 58 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, five Grammys, an American Music Award and 48 No. 1 singles.”
