Concerts announced for race weekend
Wednesday, October 3, 2012
Country stars John Anderson and Jaida Dreyer will perform as part of a two-night “Turn 5 Concert” event near Martinsville Speedway on race weekend, Oct. 26-27.
Organized by producers of the Rooster Walk Music and Arts Festival, the “Turn 5 Concerts” will raise money for the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program, the Sprint Cup pole winner’s charity of choice and Carlisle School. The two-night event will take place on Clover Road property adjacent to the speedway’s campground entrance.
“We are thrilled that so many people in our community are pulling together to put on this concert, and we are behind it 100 percent. Anything that helps entertain our fans while they are in town is wonderful,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “Not only is the music going to be good, the location is perfect. It’s just steps away from our campground entrance, so it will be easy for our fans to find.”
Anderson, who’s recorded five No. 1 Billboard hits, including “Money in the Bank,” and “Swingin,’” will headline the Oct. 26 show. Martinsville favorites Fatz and Broken Glass will open the concert, which starts at 5 p.m.
Rising country star Jaida Dryer, who recently made her first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry stage, will headline the Saturday night show. Rebel Guns will open for Dryer, and a second local band may be added to Saturday’s lineup. Music will begin at 6 p.m. Oct. 27.
Single-day tickets will cost $10 each, and tickets for both nights will be just $15 in advance. Tickets can be purchased at www.roosterwalk.com. They will also be available at participating Taco Bell stores, as well as other local outlets, in the near future.
