WYCDOn Wednesday, February 16, 2011, 99.5 WYCD is scheduled to host its third-annual Ten Man Jam at the Royal Oak Music Theatre.

Man Jam include Uncle Kracker, Lee Brice, Justin Moore, Randy Houser, Sunny Sweeney, Adam Brand, Brett Eldredge, Whitey Morgan and Ashton Sheperd. An additional surprise act will be announced.

Detroit native Uncle Kracker has quickly climbed the charts to become a nationwide country staple with hits including "Smile," and "Good to Be Me" (a duet with Kid Rock).

Since 2007 Lee Brice has released four singles, all of which have charted on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The fourth of these, "Love Like Crazy," holds the record for the longest chart run achieved in the history of that chart. Brice has also co-written singles for Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw and Adam Gregory.

Justin Moore released his first country album in 2008, skyrocketing to the top of the Hot Country Songs charts with four Top 40 singles including the Number One hit "Small Town USA" and Top Ten single "Backwoods."

"WYCD's Ten Man Jam brings ten world class musicians together on stage in one night," said WYCD Program Director Tim Roberts. "The concert is about musicians singing the songs they wrote and love in an up-close-and-personal style."

Tickets for the 99.5 WYCD Ten Man Jam cannot be purchased. Tickets can only be obtained through promotions and giveaways as announced on 99.5 WYCD.
