A vocally talented country/Christian group and one of the defining rock bands of the early 1970s will kick off entertainment at Seneca Casinos on a high note to start the new year. Diamond Rio and Creedence Clearwater Revisited will play at Seneca Allegany Events Center on Jan. 12 and Jan. 27, respectively. Tickets for both shows start at a bargain-priced $20.
Country/Christian band Diamond Rio comes to Seneca Allegany Events Center for a 7 p.m. show on Saturday, Jan. 12. The group scored a No. 1 hit with its very first single, "Meet in the Middle," in 1991, and recorded four more No. 1 hits throughout its career with "How Your Love Makes Me Feel," "One More Day," "Beautiful Mess" and "I Believe." In 2011, Diamond Rio won its first Grammy Award for Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album for its release "The Reason." Diamond Rio also has earned top group honors a combined six times through the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music.

The group - often referred to as simply "CCR" - was inducted into the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame in 1993 and has sold more than 30 million albums in the U.S. alone.
