Scotty McCreery is one of country’s hottest new stars with album sales topping 1.6 milllion, including a platinum selling debut that made BillBoard history and helped him win several new artist awards.  He’ll be joined by Cassadee Pope, winner of The Voice Season 3. Pope just released her first country album “Frame by Frame.” Singer/songwriter Steve Holy, who’s topped country music charts since his smash hit “Good Morning Beautiful,” will open the show.  97.5 WAMZ is a contributing sponsor of the concert.  The show starts at 6:30 PM.
