In addition to being a singer, songwriter and producer, McKnight is also a multi-instrumentalist who plays nine instruments including piano, guitar, bass, drums, percussions, trombone, tuba, flugelhorn and trumpet. His musical career began in childhood when he became a member of his church NY choir and a bandleader for his high school.

By the age of 19, he signed his first recording deal with Mercury Records. In 1992, his self-titled album “Brian McKnight” was released followed by “I Remember You” (1995) and “Anytime” (1997). “Anytime” sold over two million copies and was nominated for a Grammy® Award. Along with several Grammy nominations, Brian McKnight has been the recipient of American Music Awards, Soul Train Awards, NAACP Image and Blockbuster Awards, and Billboard Songwriter of The Year. 2011 saw the release of McKnight’s 14th album, entitled “Just Me”, along with a worldwide tour and live DVD.

He’s gone platinum not once, but twice, and has performed with everyone from Mary J. Blige and Carlos Santana to Estelle and The Roots. He is a soul star who has developed a sound uniquely his own by fusing together the essence of soul music with funk rules and hip-hop, all while making his mark on the charts with his first hit single entitled "Just Friends" from his platinum Def Soul release "Aijuswanaseing” (I just want to sing). Following up with his sophomore album "Juslisen," also platinum, and debuting at number 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Charts.

Hank Williams, Jr. Makes Tour Stop At San Manuel Casino The Inland Empire Takes Back the Country June 28

San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino welcomes Hank Williams Jr. Taking Back the Country Tour to the San Manuel stage. Tickets are on sale today and available at Ticketmaster.com and the San Manuel Box Office for $70, $80 and $90. Hank Williams Jr. has done more than honor his father’s legacy; he has extended it, enriched it, enhanced it, and elevated it. He learned music from the finest teachers: Earl Scruggs gave him banjo lessons and Jerry Lee Lewis did likewise with the piano. At age eight, Hank made his music debut, dressed in a black suit for a Georgia show, singing his father’s songs to wild applause. At nine, he was touring in earnest with his mother’s Caravan of Stars. At age 11, he made his Opry debut, walking across the same wooden boards his father had walked on and singing the same song “Lovesick Blues.” After a nearly tragic footnote in his life, he began recording his first truly original work, an album titled “Hank Williams Jr and Friends”, which featured untraditional country types like Jennings and the Tucker Band’s Toy Caldwell. Next came the release of his first million-selling album, “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound”, and captured superstar status with major hits like “Texas Women,” “Dixie On My Mind,” “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down),” and his 1984, “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight.”

In 1987, Hank, Jr. won his first of five country music entertainer of the year awards, and the two albums released that year – “Hank Live” and “Born to Boogie” – were platinum sellers. His star rose when ABC’s “Monday Night Football” arranged a deal to have him rework “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight” into a theme song to be played before each Monday’s game. Two years later, the “Monday Night” theme won the first of four straight Emmy® Awards, and Hank, Jr. would be the singing voice of “Monday Night Football” for 22 years. Every Thursday night with headliner entertainment, San Manuel gives away $1,000 just for seeing the show. To be eligible to win, guests only need a ticket to the show, a Club Serrano card and to be 21 or older. Guests can enter beginning at noon on such days. Three drawings will be held on those nights: $250 at 7:20 p.m., $250 at 10:00 p.m. and $500 at 11:00 p.m. Winners must be present.

NOTE: Doors open at 6:30pm. Must be 21 to enter Casino. Please gamble responsibly.
