For Chris Isaak, first comes the song.

And for First Comes The Night — Isaak’s stunning first album of new material in six years — this gifted singer-songwriter and bandleader is bringing us a bumper crop of strong and intriguing songs from which to choose. “There was no mission for this album other than to follow the songs,” Chris Isaak explains, and in terms of songwriting, the floodgates really opened this time. “My last release was Beyond The Sun — my tribute to Sun Records with a lot of covers — so this time around I had a lot of new material that I was thrilled to record. My manager always tells me, `We need more songs.’ This time, even she realized she’s creating a songwriting monster, and had to beg me to stop.”

First Comes The Night fittingly represents a number of firsts for Chris Isaak, who recently signed on to become a judge for the first time on The X Factor Australia. Of his new television gig Down Under, Isaak explains, “I love Australia, and if you’re going to look for stars, I can’t think of a more beautiful place on Earth to start looking.” As for First Comes The Night, this is the first time that Isaak has written and recorded so much in Nashville, Tennessee, a change in location he explored partly upon the suggestion of his friend Stevie Nicks. “Somehow even I had some misconceptions about Nashville,” confesses Isaak. “You’d think a music guy who’s been in the business as long as I have would know better. I’m a huge fan of country music since I grew up listening to Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb and Buck Owens, and I know my country history well, but even I somehow forgot Nashville is — and always been — about more than just country.”

    My Mom is such a big Chris Isaak fan I can’t think of a better way to surprise her then this amazing opportunity.

  3. leonard August 8, 2016 at 3:27 pm #

    love Chris

  4. Angel August 8, 2016 at 3:27 pm #

    I used to watch the Chris Isaac show while I had tv. I had since fallen in love with his sound and smooth, soothing voice. I would live to take my husband out. We never get out, and are always home with the kids and can’t afford tickets to shows. Winning a pair would be a blessing.

  5. Joseph August 8, 2016 at 7:26 pm #

    Would love to go! I genuinely miss Chris’s tv show!

  6. Louisa August 8, 2016 at 8:14 pm #

    Maryhill is a super nice venue, with country views and perfect for a Summer’s night of great music. I’ve been to Chris Isaak concerts before, and he & Silvertone sound just like their CDs- pure talent. Sadly I was let go from work earlier this year, and concerts are now a luxury not afforded.
    The newest CD is really fun, with more creativity than ever. It would be fabulous to hear Chris & the band again, soon.

  7. Paula August 8, 2016 at 9:05 pm #

    I haven’t seen Mr Izaak in a long time. Playing CDs is *almost* as good, but it’s just not the same. I hope I win!

  8. amy August 8, 2016 at 9:44 pm #

    this would be amazing!!!!

  9. Joni August 9, 2016 at 7:27 am #

    Hello sultry voice of Chis Isaac!! Getting up close and personal and listening to him create magical melodies at Maryhill winery sounds super awesome! claws crossed!

  10. Kelly W August 9, 2016 at 8:28 am #

    Chris Isaak grabbed my heart with “Dancin” and it’s been love ever since! I think I played “Forever Blue” everyday of 1995/1996. I haven’t gotten the privilege of hearing Mr. Isaak play live yet and I would love to settle in with a lovely glass of wine and his soulful voice at Maryhill Winery!

  11. Lucinda Beeler August 9, 2016 at 12:16 pm #

    Fabulous venue!
    Would love a surprise for my husband!
    Amazing artist
    Perfect summer concert to welcome Fall and wind down summer!

  12. Pam S August 9, 2016 at 12:41 pm #

    Loooove me some Chris Isaak!!

  13. Rebecca August 9, 2016 at 1:07 pm #

    I have not won anything in awhile. I think it is about time. LOL

  14. Dave G. August 9, 2016 at 1:12 pm #

    A long drive, but worth it !

  15. molli vandehey August 9, 2016 at 1:14 pm #

    i think this would be an amazing show to go to with my guy

  16. Teeneke August 9, 2016 at 1:27 pm #

    We conceived our first child while listening to Chris Isaak, would love to see him perform in person with my best friend and husband.

  17. Tonya August 9, 2016 at 1:41 pm #

    Would make a great birthday surprise for my husband!

  18. Rhea August 9, 2016 at 2:53 pm #

    I have never seen Chris in concert. Been a long time fan since Wicked Games and his hilarious TV show. Would be an awesome surprise!

  19. Gayleen August 9, 2016 at 3:12 pm #

    First MH winery concert! Perfect wedding gift to myself. From you, of course.

  20. Teresa August 9, 2016 at 3:49 pm #

    Been wanting to check out Maryhill…

  21. Shelly Wilkerson August 9, 2016 at 6:15 pm #

    Would be a special concert!

  22. Erica L Hulse August 9, 2016 at 9:07 pm #

    I would absolutely love to go to this show! Chris Issac is from my hometown of Stockton, CA. I have never seen him play before and it would be so great to see him at such a cool venue!

  23. Allison Love August 9, 2016 at 9:56 pm #

    Chris Isaak is great – saw him in Missoula a few years ago and he wore a suit that looked like a disco ball :)

  24. Kelly August 9, 2016 at 10:14 pm #

    Never been to Maryhill. Would love to see Chris there.

  25. Kathy Rankin August 10, 2016 at 10:19 am #

    I met Herschel his guitarist locally with KOLVANE or the Rose City Kings, he has sat in many times on guitar. I would love to see him with Chris as he is his guitar player. That would so be so awesome, maybe I would get super lucky and get to meet him too at the event. Wishful thinking.
    Maybe the music will spark some romance in a 29 year marriage! Keeping my fingers crossed.

    • Kathy Rankin August 27, 2016 at 3:36 pm #

      I will be out of town and unfortunately will not be able to go even if I won tickets!

    • Mark and Kathy Rankin September 2, 2016 at 8:33 am #

      update: Please read this!

      I am so bummed out. It is probably going to rain all weekend up there in Washington State. Plans to camp out for 4 days are CANCELLED.
      Now I have no plans for the entire weekend.


      I would love to go there again. Please pick me and my husband.

      I am in too much pain to camp and sleep in my SUV for 4 nights.

      Please pick us. Or I will be totally BUMMED out. all weekend with not much to do (sad face).

    I’d love to see this show, I’ve always wanted to see one of the shows at Maryhill and they’ve always sold out before I had a chance to get tickets. This year I can’t afford tickets and it would be a nice bonus birthday present.

  91. Rose August 28, 2016 at 7:24 am #

    I would love the opportunity to get out and boogie with it. I just ran 20 miles in a tutu to raise money for cancer research and need to rest my bones to the sweet sounds of Chris Isaak. I did a bad bad thing… I feel like crying, or dying? Besides I just finished nursing school and broke and wanted to test myself… Treat yo self gurllllll!!!

  92. Brooke August 28, 2016 at 7:25 am #

  93. Gregory Thomas August 29, 2016 at 7:51 pm #

    I once had the good fortune to see Mr. Isaak and his band in Austin and was struck with the revelation that he appeared to be the hardest working musician I’d ever seen–his pink suit had turned fuschia by the end of the concert–due to sweat from performing. I was also amazed that his banter with the crowd was so very light-hearted–as opposed to the darkness of most of his songs back then. AND they played Beach Boys tunes before and after the concert over the PA–a refreshing and unabashed acknowledgement of those Californians who came before. In whole, I was struck by their humility, on one hand, and their incredible craft and energy on the other! Would love to win these tix, but if not, Life will go on, life will go on…..

  94. Jessica September 1, 2016 at 11:00 am #

    We need more songs! :)
