Coyote Calhoun is retiring from WAMZ FM and his country music buddies are staging a “Thanks To Coyote” or “Coyote Appreciation Show,” i.e., a retirement party to honor his years in the business. This being country music, that means a gang of players is coming to the KFC Yum! Center on December 3 for an “Acoustic Tribute to Coyote.” Among the notables – but likely not limited to – are Jake Owen, Toby Keith, Montgomery Gentry, Little Big Town, John Michael Montgomery, Luke Bryan, Kristian Bush, Maddie & Tae, raig Morgan and Chris Young. There might still be some tickets left, as the Yum! Center announced the release of some reserved tickets on Monday. In any case, it’s $40, unless you have to get some in the after-market, in which case, god only knows what it’ll cost.
