Jack Ingram & Hayes Carll Headlining 2012 Grounded in Music Benefit Concert @ Gibson Showroom 2/15

Attention all country music lovers! Gibson Guitar Showroom is letting you in on a big treat… The ever so awesome country stars, Jack Ingram and Hayes Carll, will be hitting the stage mid-month to co-headline this year’s Grounded in Music Benefit Concert. What’s better than enjoying a great show all while celebrating a great cause? Don’t know about you, but we can’t think of much.

The ACL Music Festival veteran, Jack Ingram, is known for using his psychology background from college to inspire his songwriting. Once just a Texas star, he now plays packed shows nationwide. If you like country music and haven’t seen him perform, you sure are missing out.

Texas favorite, Hayes Carll, will also be gracing the stage. He has gained a lot of praise nationally in the realm of Americana music, having received an Americana Music Award in 2008. Expect to hear a lot of songs from his most recent album, KMAG YOYO, and old favorites such as “She Left Me For Jesus.”

All proceeds from the event will go toward a variety of efforts for the organization’s music education program:

  • Purchase musical instruments for under-privileged youth
  • Provide education in musicianship
  • Teach music theory
  • Develop educational scholarships
  • Offer music-related opportunities outside of performance
So get those cowboy boots ready and tell your friends (unless you want to be dancing alone) to save the date on February 15 because this benefit concert will be a must see. Tickets are $35 for advanced general admission and $50 for those who want to pre-party before the show, both of which can be purchased here. The Grounded in Music students will start the event with a special performance, so don’t be late. Doors open at 6:30pm.
