LOUDONVILLE — Rick Tiger, songwriter for more than a dozen country hits, will bring Nashville music to Loudonville on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. In a concert at the Historic Ohio Theatre, 156 N. Water St., Loudonville.
Tiger's credits include cuts by Montgomery Gentry, Joe Nichols, No-Blu with Sam Moore, Jeff Bates, Del McCoury Band, Western Flyer and Gene Watson.
Tickets for his performance are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors and children 3 to 18 years old. Admission is free to children 2 years old and younger.
In addition to his songwriting prowess, Tiger is renown in Nashville for the support he provides aspiring songwriters and musicians at the multiple clubs he and his wife have operated for the past two decades.
Tiger has been considered a role model to many, and is known to share advice, along with a beer, or a hot dog, to thousands of peers and strangers over the years.
For the past 13 years, he has operated the Dog House, a concession stand that services the Fiddle and Steel Guitar Bar, as well as the famed Printer's Alley.
On the famed Printer's Alley he became known as "The Prophet of Printer's Alley," as well as a bit of a legend within the songwriting community.
The last three years, Tiger has performed in nearly 200 shows across the country and into Canada. He will bring to the Ohio Theatre stage talent as both a master storyteller and songsmith. He will share stories of his time in Music City, and the inner workings of the songwriting scene.
John O'Shea, country music radio personality, commented "going to one of Rick's shows is like taking a trip without leaving your seat."
Tiger is on his Uniforms Tour, supporting his most recent release, "Uniforms," co-written with Lisa Richard and Jaff Wanex and now playing in regular rotation on Sirius XM CBC Country and other stations.
