Country music

Houser brings his North American tour to the Santa Ynez Valley at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15. Tickets are $39, $44, $49, $54 and $59.

Houser is touring in support of his latest album, “Magnolia,” which will be accompanied by a full-length film of the same name. The title draws its name from his home state of Mississippi, the Magnolia State, where the platinum-selling artist has been cultivating a homegrown, organic sound over the past two years. The film will feature live performances by Houser and follow a storyline that embodies the sentiment of the album’s lyrics.

The first track off the new album, “What Whiskey Does,” featuring Hillary Lindsey, was released in 2018 and became a Top 40 hit on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.

His first album, “Anything Goes,” featured a title track that cracked the Top 20 on the Hot Country chart, and “Boots On,” which climbed to No. 2 in 2009.

Houser’s first No. 1 hit, “How Country Feels,” was the title track to his third studio album, which also featured the No. 1 smash “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and Top 5 hits “Goodnight Kiss” and “Like a Cowboy.” The singles “How Country Feels” and “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” were certified platinum and put Houser on the country music map in 2013.

Prior to his success as a performer, Houser co-wrote singles including “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” for Trace Adkins, “Back That Thing Up” for Justin Moore, and “My Cowboy” for Jessie James.


Mind reading

The Clairvoyants, an Austrian mentalist duo seen on “America’s Got Talent,” promise to mesmerize the audience at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 22. Tickets for the show are $19, $29, $39, $49 and $59.

The Clairvoyants’ recent return to compete on “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” helped earn NBC more than 9.9 million total viewers, making it the most watched unscripted premiere on broadcast this season.

Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten were both born and raised in Austria and now split their time between Austria and America. In 2011, they brought their “second sight” act to the stage and within a year, they had developed a full-length show and began touring Europe.

In 2016, they decided to compete in season 11 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Their second-place finish won them a performance at the Sydney Opera House and also an opportunity to headline the show “The Illusionists – Turn of the Century” in the Palace Theatre in New York City on Broadway. The show was the best-selling magic show in Broadway history.

The Academy of Magical Arts and The Magic Castle Hollywood awarded the duo the “Stage Magicians of the Year 2016.”
