Don’t Miss Dani in Duncan
On Friday, August 16
at 7 PM at the Duncan
Moose Family Center,
Lodge 2202 on 1712 West
Seminole Rd, in Duncan,
Beautiful Ms. Dani Car-
son is coming to play and
Dani Carson, an award
winning, country, soft
and classic rock, blues, and various music artist from
Fletcher, OK has traveled all over Oklahoma, North-
ern Texas, Nashville, and Branson. From Miranda
Lambert, to Lynyrd Skynyrd, to Whitney Duncan,
Dani has been “breaking strings and stealing picks”
since 2013.
 Along the way, she’s made her debut opening
for the singer and songwriter of the tune “Old enough
to know better”, Wade Hayes, as well as the iconic
Red Dirt Artist, Stoney LaRue.
With her song “You will fly”, co-written with the
founder of the Jimmy Jack Foundation, Jimmy Jack
Whitaker, Dani won the 2016 United States Gospel
Entertainers and Musicians (USAGEM) Video of the
Year Award. Dani Carson has been asked to play for
Rodeo Opry in Oklahoma City Stockyards, the Gold
Mine Circuit in Phoenix, Arizona, and the Cowboy
Church of Joanne Cash-Yates and her husband, Harry
Yates in Nashville, Tennessee.
As a performer, college student, dog trainer, artist,
and sister of 6 other siblings, I’ve worked incredibly
hard to get where I’m at in the music industry, and
am still climbing. I am part of no record company,
label, entertainment company, nor do I have my own
agents. I do my own work and am always willing to
learn new and more efficient ways of reaching people
through my music. My dream, overall, is to change
the world one song at a time, to use my fears and
pains in the words that I sing and write help others
forget theirs, and to help others realize there’s no time
like the present.
Take a Chance on Chance Anderson
 For those ages
21 and older,
WallStreet Bar at
23 N 7th street in
Duncan, you get
a chance to see
Chance Anderson
in concert live
starting at 10
pm on Saturday,
August 10.
 From sharing
a piano bench
with his Grand-
mother, to opening for Joe Walsh, Dierks Bentley,
The Eli Young Band, Wade Bowen, Stoney LaRue,
Randy Rogers Band, Cody Canada and the Departed,
Reckless Kelly, Aaron Watson and many other great
artists… Chance Anderson has realized his fate.
 This 2007 ‘All American’ graduate has an undeni-
able talent that stretches far beyond the city limits of
Empire, Oklahoma. Although he’s been singing in
church since he could talk, his passion for this life
was unrealized until he began writing, as a ‘release’,
at age 16.
 This singer/songwriter has had no shortage of hard
times in his young life, but says he is thankful for
them all… as this is where his inspiration resides. His
‘inspirations’ earned him two nominations for male
vocalist of the year, along with songwriter of the year,
in the 2007 Payne County Line Awards.
 Chance’s success isn’t surprising for anyone who
has ever heard his music. The reality of his songs
combined with the emotion in his voice would have
you believing he was a true veteran of life.
 To purchase $10 tickets, go to chanceanderson.
