Tickets go on sale 10AM Friday through theBASIE.org and the Count Basie Center box office, located onsite at 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank.
Funds raised from the gala will go towards the Count Basie Center’s Forever For Everyone Endowment’s promise of providing hundreds of scholarships to study at the Count Basie Center Academy of the Arts, Conservatory of Music and other partnership programs.
The gala performance adds to yet another landmark year for Carlile, won three more awards at February’s 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards, bringing her total number of GRAMMY wins to nine. After winning Best Americana Album (In These Silent Days), Best Rock Song (“Broken Horses”) and Best Rock Performance (“Broken Horses”), Carlile performed “Broken Horses” during the live awards broadcast, which Billboard called, “an epic rock set that showcased guitar skills, impressive vocal range and rasp, and her captivating presence.” Watch/share HERE.
In These Silent Days follows Carlile’s 2018 breakthrough GRAMMY Award-winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You, which Rolling Stone declared, “…an Adele-meets Joni Mitchell tour de force.” In the years since—in addition to collaborative projects with Elton John, The Highwomen, Tanya Tucker, Soundgarden, Alicia Keys, Dolly Parton, Barry Gibb, Leslie Jordan, Brandy Clark and more—she has earned nine Grammy Awards for her work as a performer, songwriter and producer, was awarded Billboard’s Women In Music “Trailblazer Award,” CMT’s Next Women of Country “Impact Award” and received multiple recognitions from the Americana Music Association Honors & Awards including 2022’s Song of the Year (“Right on Time”), 2021’s Artist of the Year, 2020’s Album of the Year (Highwomen), Group of the Year (The Highwomen) and Song of the Year (“Crowded Table”) and 2019’s Artist of the Year.
The Count Basie Center summer gala is an annual concert celebration, benefiting the nonprofit organization’s arts education and community initiatives. Past performers include Ringo Starr, Earth, Wind and Fire, Blondie, Daryl Hall and John Oates, Norah Jones, Leslie Odom, Jr., Huey Lewis and The News, and Lake Street Drive.
