Cross stormed onto the music charts in the early 1980s with hits like “Sailing” and “Ride Like the Wind” to position himself at the forefront of adult contemporary music. His self-titled debut album also featured Top 20 hits such as “Never Be the Same” and “Say You’ll Be Mine.”

In 1980, he earned five Grammy Awards, including the unprecedented quadruple of Record of the Year, Song of the Year (both for “Sailing”) Album of the Year and Best New Artist; he’s still the only person to claim those four awards in a single year.

Cross later added an Academy Award to his trophy case, earning the Best Original Song award for the chart-topping “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do),” which he co-wrote for the Dudley Moore movie Arthur.

He kept his name in the charts with his second album, Another Page, which was released in 1983. It included the hits "All Right," "No Time for Talk" and a song written as a tribute to a friend killed by a stray bullet, "Think of Laura," which was later featured in the TV Soap Opera General Hospital.

Those who have followed this award-winning recording artist throughout the years have enjoyed set after set of intelligently written and expertly performed melodic pop. Do not miss an opportunity to see this mainstay of adult contemporary radio live on stage at in the 1,400-seat Samala Showroom.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 18-or-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Chumash or online by clicking here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
