The concert is free.
Beginning at 6 p.m., Kentucky native Dallas Remington will take the stage. Dallas grew up playing and singing country and gospel music. Remington performs a variety of songs from new country artists such as Miranda Lambert to traditional country songs from artists such as Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton.
Country singer/songwriter Tyler Barham will headline the evening at 7 p.m. The Montana native started singing when he was nine and quickly realized that country music is his passion. Earlier this year Billboard listed Barham as one of the 10 Country Artists to Watch in 2014. Barham has an interesting music history. At age 17 he started covering songs of his favorite country artists and posting them to YouTube. He has generated close to 9 million views and amassed a worldwide online following. Barham’s now gaining attention with his own songs and with the popularity of his album and single More than a Cotton Dress.
Special Events Coordinator Molly Tomasallo says, “Tyler Barham is a fantastic find for our Thursday night concert series.
As an up and coming music artist, he has been noticed by a lot of big country names. Original artists including Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, and Brett Eldredge have all shared his covers, and Darius Rucker currently is using Tyler’s cover of Come Back Song in his live concerts as his popularity continues to grow.”
Tomasallo adds, “There has been such positive support from the community, and we look for these concerts to really grow in the coming years. Paducah Parks Services loves being a stepping stone and providing a welcoming crowd for local and visiting musical talent. It is a wonderful opportunity for the public and enjoy a free concert on a beautiful summer night in downtown Paducah.”For more information about Parks Services programs, classes and special events, call (270) 444-8508 or visit www.paducahky.gov.
