Justin Moore, an Arkansas native and popular singer/songwriter, will be performing a free public concert Sept. 13 at the University of Arkansas.
"I'm thrilled to marry two things that I love together, country music and the Arkansas Razorbacks," Moore said. "There is no better place for me to play on a Friday night than my home state of Arkansas and no better place to be on a Saturday than up on the Hill. The fact that we can do both at the same time, is very cool. Not to mention, it coincides with the album coming out. Can't wait to call the Hogs!"
The special concert, organized in parking lot 56 on campus will be sponsored by Razorback Athletics.
"We are pleased to help kick off the University of Arkansas Family Weekend with a free concert by Arkansan Justin Moore," said Jeff Long, vice chancellor and director of athletics. "We appreciate Justin coming to be a part of this special weekend that brings families together for a variety of activities throughout campus. The concert will also be an opportunity for country music fans to get exclusive content from Justin. We hope fans will take advantage of this opportunity to return to campus and enjoy some great music the night before we take on Southern Mississippi."
Justin will perform songs from his first two gold-certified albums, Justin Moore (2009) and Outlaws Like Me (2011), which was placed at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.
The county music singer has three No. 1 hits - 'Small Town USA,' 'If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away' and 'Til' My Last Day.' His third album, 'Off the Beaten Path,' will be released on Sept. 17.© 2017 University Herald, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
