Eureka is in for a treat Saturday night with Shari Rowe performing at the Opera House. With her most recent single “Take That Shot,” Shari Rowe combining classic country and bluegrass elements with a stellar lineup of Nashville players, Rowe is changing the pace of the modern country music. It is no wonder the song climbed country radio charts and is playing across the world.
Rowe grew up in Glendale Arizona but notes that her brother had property so they always had horses. Rowe recalls hopping on a horse and following the canal bank or the riverbed riding bareback. Campfire stories and a lot of time in the great outdoors inspired her music.
Rowe said that even as a child her and her sister were putting on family talent shows on their back patio. And as far as country music goes Shari said “I was raised singing and enjoying country music, I loved listening to Johnny Cash,”
“Take That Shot” hit the top of the charts, including #1 on New Music Weekly’s Country Main Chart, #1 on IndieWorld’s Country Report, Top 3 Bullseye Breakout among males, #22 on the Bullseye Breakout Report, and hit the 50’s on the industry acclaimed MusicRow Breakout Chart.
The Maven Records artist traded in her backyard patio concerts for the big stage, performing with acts such as Parmalee, Diamond Rio, Three Dog Night and Aaron Carter. When she is not traveling the world sharing her original songwriting, she is a valued member of her church worship team, spending quality time with her family, and promoting music education in schools as a Celebrity Ambassador of the Red Note Foundation.
Rowe also spoke about the recent mass shooting at the Route 91 Music Festival in Las Vegas this past weekend. Rowe said, “Country fans and musicians are such a tight nit group and are so strong, they will continue to help each other and others”.
Tickets are still available for this concert and can be purchased at the door, tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.
