Young Guns tour announces performance in Penticton

A rising country duo from B.C. and a popular  Alberta cowboy are going on a cross-country tour with a stop in Penticton in 2014.

Brett Kissel, who has graced the stage as the opening act for Dwight Yoakam and Loretta Lynn at the South Okanagan Events Centre, and the duo of One More Girl, who performed at PeachFest, will be singing at the Barking Parrot on Feb. 15.

Kissel has been grinding his way through the music scene in Canada since before he was a teenager. Now 23 years old, Kissel has a breakout album, Started With A Song, and a single with the same name that was released in October.

Earlier this year, Kissel made the full-time jump to Nashville with a new recording contract from Warner Music with his mix of traditional and contemporary country music.

One More Girl was one of the headlining acts at the Penticton Peach Festival this year.

The sister duo of Carly and Britt McKillip have been making music together since they were little girls. Their latest hits straddle the line of country, rock and pop including Run, Run, Run.

Their sophmore album is due to be released in 2014 but already they have shared stages with the likes of Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban and Toby Keith. Tickets for the Feb. 15 show at the Barking Parrot go on sale this Friday at the front desk of the Penticton Lakeside Resort.

Tickets are $38.75 plus tax and are general admission.
