Gayle, Gatlin and Cooney set to appear at the new Hylton

Crystal Gayle, Larry Gatlin and Andy Cooney rank as a triple shot of music history. The trio is booked for the inaugural performance October 15 of the grand opening season at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas.

The unique singers have banded together to create a tour called "American Voices-Songs of our Nation" and it will be peppered with Gayle and Gatlin's country and gospel classics, and Cooney's Irish American melodies.

In 1979, Gayle and Gatlin were named the Academy of Country Music's best female and male vocalists. Gatlin, of course, performed with The Gatlin Brothers for four decades, then moved into a solo career and a memorable stint on Broadway but the brothers are back on the concert circuit.

So if you want to shout out "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue," tickets are still available and range from $34 to $50.

The venue, with 1121 seats, is a partnership between Prince Wiliam County, George Mason University, the City of Manassas, the Commonwealth of Virginia and private supporters.
