Goodyear Arts, founded in 2015, in Charlotte, North Carolina is a non-profit art space guided by the mission that artists need time, space, money, and community. This artist-led program has invigorated the Charlotte art community with residencies, exhibitions, and performances in once-underutilized spaces.

At the heart of Goodyear Arts is its artist-in-residence program, which provides 2-months of studio/rehearsal space, stipends to support the creation of new work, and culminates in a public showcase.  Alumni of the residency program can join the Goodyear Arts Collective, which offers numerous benefits, including free workspace, in exchange for continued support of the program.

A Collective Introspective features the work of 15 artists in the Goodyear Arts Collective. Artists from across disciplines and backgrounds have become an intimate family through the shared experience of the Goodyear Arts residency. The energy of the Collective is bright and buzzy, Goodyear Arts has fostered a community of constant conversation and (un)intentional collaboration. Our interests and approaches vary so widely, but there is always a common spirit of curiosity visible in our work.

Throughout this exhibition, you will see the inquisitive minds at work, actively trying to understand the world around us through their creative practices. We invite you to explore A Collective Introspective and discover the benefit of providing artists with time, space, money, and community.

A Collective Introspective will run July 6 - September 19, 2022.

The Betty Ray McCain Art Gallery can be accessed M-F 10am-2pm and during performance hours.

“The rhythm is gonna get you!” ON YOUR FEET! is the inspiring true story about heart, heritage, and two people who believed in their talent—and each other—enough to become an international sensation. From their humble beginnings in Cuba, Gloria and Emilio Estefan broke through the barriers to rise to the top of the pop music world. The universally crowd-pleasing and uplifting celebration of the legendary artist reveals fierce determination and visionary creativity, matched with the heart-stopping beats of the Miami Sound Machine.

CMA and ACM Award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Jon Pardi announced today his “Ain’t Always The Cowboy” tour named after his critically acclaimed song of the same name. The tour, presented by CASE Construction Equipment, is set to kick off in Irving, TX on July 14th and run through October 1 with a headlining show at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater. Tickets will be available to purchase HERE beginning March 4 at 10am local venue time.  

“I’m really excited to take two great friends and great artists out as openers for the ‘Ain’t Always The Cowboy’ tour,” said Pardi. Additionally he shared with American Songwriter “you get your buddies and put on a good show anywhere people will have you. Indeed, that’s what most heartens.”

Pardi broke the news in his American Songwriter February Issue Cover Story, where he opened up about his new single, “Last Night Lonely” and his upcoming tour with two of Nashville’s most respected women in country music - Lainey Wilson and Hailey Whitters. Pardi also discussed his new single-the first off of an upcoming project-“Last Night Lonely” in the Digital Cover story, telling American Songwriter “What I love most about music is the feelings. They make you dance, cry, have a drink. Fall in love or get the hell out of love. That’s why I love music and why it will always be a part of my life, your life—that’s why we’re here.”

“CASE Construction Equipment has been the ultimate sponsor and partner. As a kid who grew up in construction and agriculture it’s been a dream come true to work with them,” said Pardi. “I’m really excited about continuing this great partnership and having them on board for the ‘Ain’t Always The Cowboy’ tour.”

Pardi’s tour announcement comes after last week’s first look at his highly anticipated upcoming studio release with “Last Night Lonely.” The fiddle and steel-drenched track further etches Pardi’s “long-lasting mark on the genre” (Music Row), following his critically acclaimed third album, Heartache Medication. Nominated for Album of the Year by both the CMA and ACM, Heartache Medication was named one of Rolling Stone’s Best Country Albums of 2019 while standing as the only country album on the Los Angeles Times “Best Albums of the Year” list. With an impressive ability to carve his own path proving “the kind of country music multiple generations came to know, and love can still work on a mass scale” (Variety), Pardi’s instantly identifiable twang, fiddle, and steel guitars “apply new ideas to country’s old sounds” (Los Angeles Times). Lauded as a “hero in the making” (Variety), he continues to “bring authenticity back into Country music” (People).

Jamey Johnson Teams Up with Blackberry Smoke on 2022 Tour Dates

Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Jamey Johnson, one of today’s most respected country music artists, is launching a series of dates this year with popular group Blackberry Smoke.

The tour starts Aug. 12 in Lincoln on the Streets in Lincoln NE, and also features Ella Langley. The artists tour together through Sept. 11, where they perform at KEMBA Live! with Megan Moroney.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, April 22 at 10 a.m. local time.

The Washington Post considers Johnson to be “one of the greatest country singers of our time.”  Since Johnson doesn’t create a set list, no two shows are the same, so the once-in-a-lifetime concert will be unforgettable.

“I don’t know what I’m going to do until I am standing there doing it,” he says.  “That is a freedom I have enjoyed ever since I began doing this, the ability to try something new.

“You’ll see me do a lot of my songs, including my old stuff,” he says. “If I have a new song that I want to share, you will hear that. When I’m not doing my songs, I’ll be doing everybody else’s that I like, from every format. If I find a jazz song that I like, we’ll drop it in there. If I find a rock song that I like, we’ll do that.

“My taste is vintage, traditional, and that is not to say that everything I do is old. There are a lot of new writers these days that are putting out great music that I find in the same vein as the old stuff I like and we may try some of that out.”

His 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification.  He has been nominated for 11 Grammys.

In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.

In 2012, the Alabama native released the Grammy-nominated Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard.

In 2014, he created his own label, Big Gassed Records, to release his own songs and albums as well as the music of other artists.

Johnson says he gets the same thrill when he takes the stage each time as he did when he launched his impressive career. “I love the audience participation,” he says.

“I love it when they sing along. I love it when I can’t remember the words and they do. I love it when the band really nails a good one and I love it when we end up in a train wreck, and those are few and far between, but I even love that.

“There are some things we do every night and I think our fans know what that will be.  Fans will yell at me during the show and I can’t understand what they are saying, but I am thrilled to death they are that passionate.”
