Things are heating up at Choctaw Casino in Durant with a full roster of country stars in August. Little Big Town, the wildly popular group with hits like “Girl Crush” and “Better Man,” will visit the Grand Theater on Aug. 11. The Alabama-based quartet has racked up a slew of nominations and awards for its music, including two Grammys.

Along with La Maquinara Nortena on Aug. 12 and Clint Black with Sawyer Brown on Aug. 26, Darius Rucker will bring down the house Aug. 18. An original member and lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, Rucker performed for decades before starting his solo career in country music nearly 10 years ago. He also has a few tricks up his sleeve for the performance, says Jodi Pestka, marketing director at Choctaw Casino and Resort.

“Darius Rucker will have a special surprise for a military veteran [at the concert],” she says.

Pestka finds that the concerts at Choctaw Casino are a perfect antidote to the Oklahoma heat.

“We are ecstatic to bring these top acts to town for our guests to enjoy in the middle of this hot summer,” she says. “What better way to cool down?”
