Country music star Doug Stone

Country music star Doug Stone is set to perform with his band at Oklahoma City Community College’s (OCCC) Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater this month. Doug Stone and The Stone Age Band performs Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018, at 8 p.m. and tickets are now available. 

In the 90s, country music was making a huge hit on the charts nationwide. To not be confused with Garth Brooks, Doug Brooks became Doug Stone and started climbing the charts with his own singles.

Stone quickly started charting singles, one after another after his debut single, “I’d Be Better Off in a Pine Box.” Stone has charted twenty-two singles on Hot Country Songs, with his greatest chart success coming between 1990 and 1995. In this time span, he charted four number ones: “In a Different Light,” “A Jukebox and a Country Song,” “Too Busy Being in Love,” and “Why Didn’t I think of That,” and eleven more top ten singles.

He now tours with The Stone Age Band, performing fan favorites, both new and old. For more information about Doug Stone and The Stone Age Band, visit www.dougstone.com.
