6:45 PM – Special Guest Jon Langston
8:00 PM – Confederate Railroad
COUNTRY — Confederate Railroad first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s. Headed by founder and frontman Danny Shirley, the former backup band for both David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck got their big break by signing with Atlantic Records. From rowdy country to raw emotion, a Confederate Railroad concert covers a wide range of feelings. Young people will be there rocking to “Trashy Women”, while their parents and even grandparents will likely be singing along to “Jesus and Mama”.
On stage, Shirley, the lead singer and vocalist, and his mates, Mark Dufresne (drums), Wayne Secrest (bass), Rusty Hendrix (lead guitar) and Bobby Randall (steel guitar, fiddle and vocals), are right at home and obviously having fun right along with their appreciative audience.

COUNTRY— Georgia native Jon Langston set his sights on playing football in high school and earned a Division I scholarship to play at Gardner-Webb University in North Carolina. It was his junior year of college when he picked the guitar up again after suffering multiple concussions. The coaches, doctors and Jon decided it was best for his health to hang up the pads. Langston says. “It was hard but I knew it was the right thing to do. I didn’t know what God had planned for my life at the time.” Langston picked up the guitar again and began to write his own songs, posting them on YouTube.
Langston has a passion and love for country music, and his unique voice and songwriting style have sparked a wildfire fan base across the nation. Now a Music City resident in Nashville, TN, Langston has created his own style and sound from a variety of influences.

7:00 PM – Redhead Express
Sponsor: BZ Motors and The Whole Enchilada
VARIETY* — Music had always been part of their lives, but Christmas of 2006 changed everything when Redhead Express band members got their instruments – Kendra (singer, songwriter and band leader), a guitar, LaRae, a banjo, Alisa, the family’s violin, and Meghan, an upright bass.
In 2007, they practiced with a local jam group, performed for tips at coffee shops and festivals, and traded performances for food tickets at the Alaska State Fair. Everyone was hooked, but they wanted more. The family literally sold everything they owned down to whatever they could each fit into their own plastic Rubbermaid bin and headed for the Appalachian Mountains to study the roots music of America. While many believe it is their near perfect three and four part sibling harmonies that truly makes them unique, their sound and stage presence is undeniable.
*Redhead Express performs American Folk, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Pop and Country Music.

CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN — After many years of drug and alcohol addiction, Zach William eventually became the campus director and worship leader of Central Baptist’s campus in Jonesboro. Over time, doors opened for him to write songs with Jonathan Smith and Mia Fieldes, including “Chain Breaker,” a tribute to the goodness of God in our lives.
“Even though I grew up going to church every Sunday as a kid, even though I knew right from wrong and said I was a Christian, there was absolutely nothing about the way I was living that reflected these things,” Zach shares. “It took a trip to Europe in 2012 to stop me dead in my tracks and show me just how lost I really was.”
That year, with his wife by his side, his faith became real to him and he found renewal by dedicating his life to Christ. He hasn’t looked back since.
