    Jeff Dayton - American Troubadour

    7:30 PMCrossings Event at The Zumbrota State Theatre

    Get ready for a night full of great songs from artists that Nashville artist Jeff Dayton has worked with over the years, legends such as Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson. It’s a show full of uptempo fun and memories, strong guitar playing and skilled backing musicians. Presented by Crossings at the State Theatre on Fri., May 17, at 7:30pm.

    From the White House to the Grand Ole Opry, Jeff Dayton has been playing guitar and performing all his life. He’s a Nashville producer and writer and loves the concentrated creative scene in Music City. His hometown roots in Minnesota and years in Arizona earned him the job of bandleader with Hall of Fame artist Glen Campbell for fifteen years. He also found time to land his music degree, regional hit records and the honor of backing artists including Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, Buck Owens, Tracy Byrd, Bo Diddley, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Autry, Mac Davis and many more. Once arriving in Nashville, Jeff focused on writing and producing, but because of his reputation and guitar skills, was soon touring with megastar Kenny Chesney, Lee Greenwood, Sarah Darling, Tammy Cochran and others.

    Jeff was born and raised in Long Lake, MN and worked with musicians from Bob Dylan and Prince while he was in the Twin Cities. He later moved to Phoenix, AZ, graduated from Arizona State and had almost immediate success with the Jeff Dayton Band. He earned gold and platinum records for his songwriting with George Strait and opened concerts for a who's who of stars from Reba to Ronnie Milsap, Alabama to Charlie Daniels.

    Tickets are $28 in advance and $32 at the door.
