Tickets start at $20, ages 21 and up.

Meanwhile at Cowboy’s in Kennesaw, Collins returns with his band, Shoot the Messenger. Collins – who recently took over as Lonestar’s lead singer -- was “discovered” at Cowboys when he was fronted 151, Cowboys’ house band. Tickets are $12 for ages 21 and up, $15 for ages 18-20.
