Mahnomen, MN -- Twin Cities radio personality and Minnesota country musician Chris Hawkey will be making his first appearance Friday night at the Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen. Hawkey and his band have been quickly rising to stardom in the country music scene around the Midwest and throughout the country. Just recently, he kicked off Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis and has took the stage at We Fest in previous years. Hawkey says he’s also very excited to headline the Shooting Star Casino stage where many of the biggest names in country and classic rock music take the stage on a weekly basis.

Hawkey first made his musical presence known with a band called Rocket Club, who had a hit single called “North Country.” Hawkey says North Country is more than just a song title, but also a great way to describe his music.
