DURANT, Okla., (March 24, 2023) – Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant is proud to welcome two big artists this fall! Returning to the Grand Theater, Hank Williams Jr. will perform two-nights in a row on both Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23. Making his debut performance, moody and soulful rock artist Hozier will perform with Madison Cunningham on Friday, October 13.


Hank Williams, Jr.’s extremely impressive resume has spawned 70 million albums sold worldwide, six RIAA-certified Platinum albums, 20 RIAA Gold-certified, 13 No. 1 albums and 10 No. 1 singles. Marking 52 years since his first album in 1964, Williams Jr. released “It’s About Time” in 2016. In addition to the history-making “Are You Ready for the Country,” the project included tunes such as “Dress Like an Icon,” “Just Call Me Hank,” “It’s About Time” and “The Party’s On” as well as re-recorded versions of classics “Mental Revenge” and “Born to Boogie” with Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore and Brad Paisley on guitar. “It’s About Time” marked Williams Jr. 37th studio album in his five-decade career.

In 2022 Williams Jr. continued to redefine the boundaries of rock and country music with the genre-crossing, chart-topping release of his most recent album, “Rich White Honky Blues.” Debuting at No. 1 on the Current Country, Americana/Folk and Blues Albums charts, the project was a successful collaboration between Williams and Grammy-winning Producer, Dan Auerbach. The 12-song-set was recorded live, reprising classics from Robert Johnson, Lightnin’ Hopkins, R.L. Burnside, Muddy Waters, and more, delivering reinvigorated classic blues sounds infused with Williams’ signature rock and country flavor.

Tickets are currently on sale for both shows for Hank Williams Jr. and can be purchased at https://tinyurl.com/eerr86bm.The concert will begin at 8 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m.


Hozier is making his Grand Theater debut this fall with special guest Madison Cunningham. The Unreal Unearth Tour makes a stop at the Grand Theater on Friday, October 13 in support of his upcoming album of the same name.

Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hozier rose to global attention in 2013 when his moody and soulful rock single “Take Me to Church” became a viral success. The song catapulted him into a major-label contract for his eponymous debut, platinum certifications in 11 countries, and a GRAMMY® nomination for Song of the Year in 2015. After several years of touring and promotion, he returned with the 2018 EP “Nina Cried Power” and his second full-length, “Wasteland, Baby!”, which hit number one in America and Ireland upon its release in 2019.

Tickets are currently on sale for Hozier with Madison Cunningham and can be purchased at https://tinyurl.com/pnd2ju8m. The concert will begin at 8 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m.
