McIver Rodeo Arena
June 30, 2023 – Doors Open 4pm
Inspired by the tradition of small-town community. Set within the laid-back, rustic charm of historic Truckee, CA. Shop, dine, discover art, explore the outdoor playground of the high Sierra, and dance the night away. Latitude 39 is your Mountain Music Experience.
HEADLINER – 8:45PM
Joe Nichols has been a mainstay of country music for two decades, bridging the gap between the genre’s old-school roots and contemporary era. He’s a 21st century traditionalist — an artist who’s both timely and timeless, racking up a half-dozen Number 1 singles and ten Top 10 hits with a sound that honors his heroes. From his first radio smash, 2002’s “The Impossible,” to 2021’s Home Run,” Nichols has proudly done things his own way, blurring the boundaries between country music’s past and present along the way.
It’s an approach that has earned Nichols multi-platinum success, three Grammy nominations, a CMA award, an ACM trophy, and — perhaps most importantly — the support of his idols.

Country roots, rock and roll heart, and spellbinding songcraft: Recording and performing artist Mark Mackay has left his boot prints on stages like Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium to Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

About CJ Solar
CJ celebrated his first #1 country single as a songwriter with Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down” smash hit featuring Florida Georgia Line last year. The song garnered CJ an ASCAP Award and the Nashville Songwriters Award for “10 Songs I Wish I’d Written.” He co-wrote Jason Aldean’s “I Don’t Drink Anymore,” Jerrod Niemann’s Top 30 single “Blue Bandana” and “The Regulars” and Justin Moore’s “Between You & Me.” He also had writing credits on Mike Ryan’s “Damn Good Goodbye” and Kyle Park’s single, “What the Heaven,” which hit #1 on the Texas regional radio chart.
Solar has released two popular EPs and just dropped his “Coming My Way” single and music video from his upcoming third EP of the same name on Sea Gayle Records.
The chart success of both singles led to CJ being named “Independent Artist of the Year” at the 2019 Annual MusicRow CountryBreakout Awards ceremony in and being nominated for “Breakthrough Artist-Writer” at the 2019 MusicRow Awards.

THE MOUNTAIN TOWN
Truckee, California is your Base Camp for a Big Life. Set high in the natural serenity of the Sierra Nevada, the mountain town boasts old-west vibes with covered sidewalks and store facades dating back one hundred years.

Truckee Host Lions Club was inspired to create Latitude 39 by the tradition of community. Our goal is to bring everyone together to celebrate our town and its people. Truckee fosters a close-knit communal attitude that encourages neighbors to treat each other with respect and to lend a helping hand. We are grateful to be part of a community where neighbors care about the well-being of their town and the people who live in it.
Truckee Host Lions Club has been an integral part of our community for 91 years. Last year, with the help of wonderful area partners and Lions clubs, we hosted our first-ever Community Health Fair where we provided families with free screenings for vision, diabetes, blood pressure, and free dental and fluoride treatments for children. Residents also received free child safety seats, flu shots, and COVID boosters.
We have helped those in need with free eye exams, glasses, and hearing aids for years.
Your ticket to Latitude 39, a benefit concert, assists our mission to help provide essential health services to those who need it most. Lions serve. Where there is a need, there is a Lion.
