Join us on the Patio @HoopsYakima to enjoy Nashville Country artist C.J. Garton on Friday, June 16th from 7:00-10:00pm. Opening for CJ is Hunter Stiles at 7:00pm.

Oklahoma native and Nashville artist/writer CJ Garton commands a sound that takes you back to Country. CJ Garton’s thunderous baritone is a wonderful throwback to the days of Johnny Paycheck and Waylon Jennings, and he writes country epics that easily outduel the biggest current names in the game. A consummate cowboy in well-worn boots, CJ writes and sings working man’s music to the backbeat of America. His music ranges from neo-traditional to outlaw to classic country – all heart with an honest story.

Garton has been writing and singing for as long as he can remember. Working on the ranch with his dad as a kid helped cement his lifelong dedication to authentic country sounds. “Growing up on the ranch you were surrounded by George Strait, Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson tunes, working cattle and waking up early.

“I learned a lot about common sense and hard work out there, and I’m proud to say that I think that translates into my music. It’s just working man’s music and honest songs that got me through it.”Now in his late 30s, Garton has made a career of country music and works out of Nashville, but he still returns to the family land in Oklahoma to reconnect with his roots. He’s lived without his dad since losing him in the early 2000s.

Learn more about his music on his website or his Facebook page.
