Gracin hails from Michigan, and began singing at age 12. He had his musical breakthrough as a fan favorite on the second season of “American Idol.” After completing his service with the U.S. Marine Corps, Gracin transitioned fully into his new role as a full-time recording artist. He released his debut, self-titled album in 2004 with its single, “Nothin’ to Lose,” rising all the way to the top of the country charts.

Joining Josh on stage that evening will be country Duo Damsel. Drawing from their inspirational roots, both girls honed their vocal skills in their respective home churches. Since then, they have been working on songwriting and performing in cowboy churches rodeos, county fairs, and talent shows throughout the West.

While living only five hours apart and almost crossing paths on numerous occasions, it wasn’t until summer of 2012 that these two talented young ladies’ came together to form Damsel. Damsel’s first three songs together were recorded in the fall of 2012 in Nashville: Trucks Are for Girls; Fear of Leaving; If Your Phone Ain’t Ringing.

The Sand and Sage Round-Up PRCA Professional Rodeo will be held Friday, August 9th and Saturday, August 10th with the crowd pleasing BBQ before each rodeo. Saturday night will also feature the 3rd Annual Tough Enough to Wear Pink (TETWP) night at the Sand and Sage. Since its inception in 2004, TETWP has empowered rodeos and western events in the U.S. and Canada to focus attention on the need for a cure for cancer. To date, the campaign has raised over $12 million dollars nationwide for cancer charities, much of which stays right in the community. The grassroots movement has inspired other sports communities to mount their own TETWP campaigns, spreading a message of hope and support that reaches beyond the rodeo arena to competitors, families and fans across America.

Presale Tickets for the Concert as well as the crowd favorite PRCA professional rodeo go on sale on Monday July 22nd until August 2nd at the Lamar Senior Center from 4pm-8pm weekdays. For more information visit .
