Sheila Greenland’s career started at the early age of six when she performed at local music festivals. Since then, she has won numerous vocal competitions and impressively made it to the finals of TV’s “Nashville Star.”  Sheila regularly writes, records and tours. She performs several nights each month and has opened for such major acts as Brad Paisley, JoDee Messina, and Sara Evans. Sheila has recently released her newest album, Back Home to me and is overwhelmed with the radio support she has received! When asked about performing at the Golden Husk, Sheila stated, “It is so exciting to play where my heart is. I feel like after years of chasing things far away I’ve finally come back home to me!” 

Opening the concert, is local talent Micheal Allen Sich, lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the band, Lost County Road. Micheal discovered his passion for music and singing as a child while listening to Garth Brooks songs and becoming involved in his high school music program. With encouragement from his mom he began writing his own songs and performing in competitions. Now, Micheal performs across the state and beyond with Lost County Road and continues to evolve his love for art as he creates original music.
