The Muhammad Ali of the Dobro, Alison Kraus/Paul Simon/Ray Charles/Eric Clapton/Mumford & Sons collaborator Jerry Douglas is coming to Asheville. Want to be there?

Only commenters who have not won anything from Ashvegas in the last 30 days are eligible to win. Please use your correct first and last name in your comment, so we know who to hold your tickets for.

Ticket contests on Ashvegas (USUALLY) happen at 9 a.m. and/or 3 p.m weekdays, though we reserve the right to run a contest anytime.

Just be the first correct commenter to tell us how many Grammys Jerry Douglas has won. One winner will receive two tickets to the show.

“I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m not afraid to try anything,” states Jerry Douglas. “That’s what this record’s about.”

That fearlessness is manifested in spades on Traveler, the artist’s 14th solo release and his first in three years. The 11-song album finds the world-renowned Dobro master—described as “the Muhammad Ali of the Dobro” by James Taylor and “my favorite musician” by John Fogerty—defying expectations and ignoring genre restrictions to deliver his most stylistically expansive, personally-charged effort to date.

Recorded in New Orleans, New York, Montreal and Banbury, England as well as in Douglas‘ homebase of Nashville, Traveler finds the 13-time Grammy winner and three-time Country Music Association Musician of the Year delivering an audaciously eclectic set that teams him with such world-class talents (and avowed Douglas admirers) as Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Mumford & Sons, Keb’ Mo’, Marc Cohn, Dr. John, Del McCoury, Bela Fleck, Sam Bush, Jon Cleary, Viktor Krauss and Omar Hakim, as well as Alison Krauss & Union Station, of which Douglas has been a member since 1998.

Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8pm Tickets: $28 advance / $30 day of show
