A special concert will be held in March to benefit the Cairo Main Street Program. The featured performer will be up and coming country musician Ward Davis.
Cairo Main Street Director Alyssa Blakley says she recently attended a concert and had the opportunity to meet Davis.
“In a discussion with this talented artist, I mentioned to him that we had been hosting free concerts downtown for the community, but the cost of staging such events is costly. Davis generously agreed to come and play a benefit here to benefit our Main Street program,” Blakley said.
Davis is an American Singer/Songwriter from Monticello, Arkansas by way of Nashville, Tennessee. Ward Davis has had songs recorded by Trace Adkins, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Wade Hayes, Sammy Kershaw, Bucky Covington, Jimmie Van Zant, Buddy Jewel, Carolina Rain, The Roys, and more. Most recently, Ward Davis co-wrote “I’m Not The Devil” with Cody Jinks, with whom he subsequently toured nationwide. With over 250 shows per year under his belt as both a headliner and support act, Ward Davis’ already popular live show is growing at exponential rates.
The concert will be held on Friday night, March 6 at the Grady Cultural Center. Opening for Davis will be the Tobacco Rd Band of Tallahassee.
“In looking for a local opener for Ward Davis, I got several recommendations for Tobacco Rd Band. They are a powerful, gritty, and high energy group that is sure to get the crowd going before the main event,” says Blakley.
General admission tickets for the event are now on sale for $20 in advance and $25 at the door on the day of the show. Reserved tables will be available for $400, which include eight general admission tickets, eight drink tickets, and eight raffle tickets.
The preferred method of purchasing tickets is by visiting warddavismusic.com, but tickets may also be purchased from Cairo City Hall and the Cairo-Grady County Chamber of Commerce.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available for the program by contacting Blakley at (229) 377-1722 ext 185 or by emailing her at email@example.com.
