Track 5, the new country dance hall at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, announced acts that will perform free shows in March.

Country group Exile will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 5. Cross Rags & Young will perform at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 12.

In 1978, Exile skyrocketed to worldwide fame with the chart-topping single “Kiss You All Over.” By the 1980s, Exile began to focus on country music.

During its run on the country charts, Exile was responsible for 10 No. 1 singles, including “Give Me One More Chance” and “Woke Up In Love.”

Cross Rags & Young is where Red Dirt meets Texas country flavor. The Yukon, Oklahoma-based group is made up of Grady Cross and Randy Ragsdale (formerly part of award-winning band Cross Canadian Ragweed), as well as singer-songwriter Jason Young.

They joined forces to create a unique spin on the Texas country sound, incorporating the familiar sound of Red Dirt that their fans have grown to love.

Track 5 offers live entertainment weekly Wednesday through Sunday. To see a full entertainment lineup, visit hardrockcasinotulsa.com/entertainment/entertainment-calendar.
