SJ McDonald

Friday, July 19  - 8:00 PM to Midnight

SJ McDonald's sound reflects that of a hard-working farmer's daughter who lives and breathes country music - because that’s who she is.

Born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, SJ developed her tenacity and dedication working on her family’s 5-generation cattle and turkey farm. Along with callused hands, she found her adoration for country music, loving the legends of the 90s and 2000s country eras. SJ started writing and performing at just 9 years old, leading her own band throughout high school, and found her way to Nashville at 18. She landed weekly slots on Lower Broadway playing for tips, where she has been cutting her teeth and honing her performance craft since.

Alongside her own artist journey, which has taken her along a self-booked coast-to-coast tour throughout the summer of 2023, SJ is equally as focused in elevating the work of fellow artists like Mackenzie Carpenter, who's upcoming release "Gone Fishin'" awaits, and Mae Estes, who saw success with "Die in a Bar" on her debut EP. Furthering her career as a songwriter, SJ recently signed a publishing deal with Major Bob Music.

SJ brings her infectious energy to the stage, the writing room, and the studio. After a successful 2023 of independently releasing songs like "Rosemary", a cheeky murder ballad, and "Break a Cowboy" a classic country heartbreak song, SJ is gearing up to get back into the studio and work on the release of her next project, and to get back on the road this summer.

 


 

High Mileage

Saturday, July 20 - 8:30 PM to 12:30 AM

About The PWB

Since 2008, The Pat Watters Band has blazed a trail through the upper Midwest to develop and amplify a new voice in country music. A voice that reflects and represents the Wisconsin lifestyle.

Along the way, we've headlined fairs, festivals, and local taverns. We've opened for some of our heroes. We've played shows that sold out, and shows that barely sold. But mile by mile, stage by stage, and crowd by crowd... we've found "our people."

And they've found us

Together, we take up the flag and march forward. And the Wisconsin country music mission continues.

So tonight, 700 miles from the influence of Music Row, on a festival stage or in the corner of your favorite small town tavern, the trademark twang and authenticity that country music was built on is alive and well. And as long as there's a PWB, it will continue to be.

Accomplishments

  • 2020 Midwest CMA Band of the Year Nominee 
  • 2015 WAMI Country Artist of the Year
  • 9-Time WAMI People's Choice Award Winners
  • Maintained a reputation as all-around good guys who don't take themselves too seriously
