Pencil in another show on your summer music calendar: Singer-songwriters Gavin DeGraw and Matt Nathanson will co-headline a summer tour, which stops at Salt Lake City's Red Butte Garden on June 29.

McGraw is a New York native whose blue-eyed soul sound is familiar through such singles as "Not Over You" and "I Don't Want to Be" (which became the theme song to the nighttime soap "One Tree Hill"). His last album, "Make a Move," produced the singles "Best I Ever Had" and the title track.

Nathanson is a folk-rocker who last summer released his 10th album, "Last of the Great Pretenders." His biggest single, "Come On Get Higher," charted in 2008.

Opening the show is singer Mary Lambert, best known for providing the soulful "she keeps me warm" chorus to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' gay-marriage hit "Same Love." (She also sang it on the Grammys, with Madonna.) Lambert released her first major-label EP, "Welcome to the Age of My Body," in December. A full album is in the works.

Tickets for Red Butte's summer concert series go on sale to members on April 28, and to the public on May 5.
