Tickets on sale for Covington Concert
Oct 20, 2012 4:00 pm
Ticket sales are under way for a Wilson County concert featuring country music star and American Idol finalist Bucky Covington.
Covington will perform at Watertown’s Stardust Drive-In Theatre to benefit two Wilson County organizations.
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. “That way, we can make a fairly substantial donation to all the organizations involved.”
The concert will be Nov. 17 with gates opening at 10 a.m. and Covington taking the stage at noon.
Country artists Alicia Smith and Josh Mirenda will open the show.
“It’s going to be a great show,” said Hayes. “We scheduled this purposely to where there’s not a Titans game the next day, so there won’t be a lot competing with it.”
Children ages 12 and under will be admitted free with a parent’s paid ticket.
“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.
Covington was country music’s best-selling debut artist in 2007 with his song, “A Different World.”
“The city is doing ticket sales on [Music With a Purpose’s] behalf, and the city will keep a commission that can go to some local charities,” said Ed Hagerty, mayor of Mt. Juliet.
The additional charities have not been selected yet.
Tickets are $15 and available at Charlie Daniels Park, the Mt. Juliet Community Center and Mt. Juliet City Hall. Tickets may also be purchased at musicwithapurpose.com as well as The Lebanon Democrat office at 402 N. Cumberland Street in Lebanon.
