Covington concert nears
Nov 10, 2012 4:30 pm
Tickets are still available for a concert featuring country artist Bucky Covington in Watertown.
The concert will be Nov. 17 at Watertown’s Stardust Drive-In Theatre.
Covington was an American Idol finalist in 2006 and became country music’s best-selling debut artist in 2007 with his song “A Different World.”
The concert, which is being offered by the Middle Tennessee organization Music With a Purpose, will benefit the Mt. Juliet Help Center and the Bridge Fellowship.
“Our goal is to sell 2,000 tickets,” said Jeremy Hayes, president of Music With a Purpose.
“The team at Music With a Purpose hopes that this concert will go a long way in helping provide revenue for people working to make our community a better place to live,” said Hayes.
Gates will open at 10 a.m., and the opening acts -- Alicia Smith and Josh Mirenda -- will begin at noon. Covington will immediately follow.
Fans can buy tickets online at musicwithapurpose.com, through Middle Tennessee State University’s Up ‘Til Dawn student group or at The Lebanon Democrat’s office.
Anyone buying tickets online can enter the code MJPARKS for $5 of each ticket to go toward the Mt. Juliet Parks and Recreation department.
Tickets are $15, and children ages 12 and under will be admitted free with a parent’s paid ticket.
