The season of fall is about a month away. It brings with it the promise of cooler temperatures, pumpkin spice everything and college football.

And for South Mississippi music fans, it brings a plethora of some of the biggest and best of country music.

The big news is that singer/songwriter Chris Stapleton will be at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum on Oct. 20 with special guest Anderson East.

If you aren’t familiar with Stapleton, his album “The Traveler” is one of the most critically-acclaimed albums in recent years, crossing over with fans of both rock and country.

He recently opened for Guns N’ Roses when the “Not in This Lifetime” tour hit Nashville.

He has a tight backup band that features his wife, Morgan, and Mickey Raphael when the harmonica player isn’t fulfilling his day job as Willie Nelson’s longtime sideman.

If you want to see Stapleton in Biloxi, know that tickets are selling quickly and the show is almost certain to be a sellout.

One of country music’s heavy hitters will be taking a final bow on the Gulf Coast on Oct. 8.

Kenny Rogers will make a stop at the Saenger Theater in New Orleans as part of “The Gambler’s Last Deal” tour. Rogers is making the stop on his final tour as he is retiring from life on the road. As Rogers has not scheduled a Biloxi show, this will be your last chance to see him on the Gulf Coast. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday.

Although she hasn’t officially announced retirement, Dolly Parton will be bringing the “Pure & Simple” tour to the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans on November 30. Parton doesn’t tour as often as she once did, so who knows when or if she’ll tour again. The tour will feature some of Parton’s greatest hits, as well as some songs from the “Pure & Simple” album.
