ROGERS, AR – Country music superstar Travis Tritt is coming to Dickson Street in Fayetteville, Arkansas for a free concert on Friday, September 11. The M&M’s Dickson Street Concert will be held as part of the festivities around the LPGA Tour’s P&G Beauty NW Arkansas Championship presented by John Q. Hammons. The LPGA tournament is held at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers, September 7 – 13.
“The expectation for our event is that it will appeal to and reach all of Northwest Arkansas, from Bella Vista to Fayetteville and all points in between,” said Jay Allen, Tournament Chairman. “We appreciate the opportunity to bring a top flight entertainment event to downtown Fayetteville as part of LPGA week in Northwest Arkansas.”
The M&M’s Dickson Street Concert featuring Travis Tritt is free to everyone. There is no ticket required. It will be held from the Walton Arts Center parking lot located at 495 W. Dickson Street in Fayetteville. The show will begin at 8:00 p.m.
Tritt is a Grammy award-winning country music artist that has charted over 30 singles on the U.S. Billboard charts, including five number one hits. Known for his signature hair and distinct bluesy Southern rock sound, Tritt developed an outlaw image that separated him from the country music pack. His appeal crosses genres and he has earned fans from country music, rock n’ roll and even soul. Among Tritt’s notable hits are: “Country Club”, “T-R-O-U-B-L-E”, “Help Me Hold On”, “Anymore”, “Can I Trust You With My Heart”, “Foolish Pride”, “Best of Intentions” and “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive”.
