Pack your car, buckle up your family and enjoy the experience of live music from your own personal tailgating zone.
Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990s, but it was seven years before lead singer Matt Scannell’s songs became the radio hits that brought the popular grassroots band to national attention. Vertical Horizon released three albums independently (There and Back Again, Running on Ice and Live Stages) and toured extensively before signing with RCA Records in 1998. In 1999, they released their breakout album, Everything You Want, which sold more than two million copies. The second single off the CD, the title track “Everything You Want,” captured the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts and became Billboard’s Most Played Single of 2000. Having carved out a page in the annals of music history, the band garnered further radio attention with “You’re a God” (#4 on Billboard’s Adult Chart) and “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning).” Their follow-up album, Go, was released in 2003 and solidified the band as a no-nonsense pop rock entity. In February 2018 Vertical Horizon released their latest album, The Lost Mile.
