Two-time Grammy award winner Kenny Loggins will perform a free concert at Orchards Parkin Bentonville, Saturday June 22. The concert is free and open to the public and will begin at 7:30 p.m. following the second round of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship. The official LPGA Tour event is being held at Pinnacle Country Club June 17-23, and will feature the world’s best female golfers.
When Loggins takes the stage in Orchards Park, the show will celebrate a career that spans over four decades and twelve platinum albums. Originally part of the duo Loggins and Messina, the group produced seven albums and several hit singles including: “Your Mama Don’t Dance,” “Watching the River Run” and “Danny’s Song.” Also known as “The King of Movie Soundtracks,” Loggins has several other top-10 hits including: “I’m Alright,” “Footloose,” “Danger Zone,” and “Nobody’s Fool.”
“When the LPGA Tour returns next week we’ll have plenty of entertainment for our fans and families to enjoy,” said Tournament Director Harry Hardy. “From the additions we’ve made at the 17th hole to make it the loudest hole in golf, the free snacks and activities in the kids’ center, and now this free concert, there’s something for everyone to get excited about. All of these additions are examples of how the tournament and Walmart are committed to giving back to the community of Northwest Arkansas.”
For even more entertainment following Saturday’s concert, fans can enjoy the final round of the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship on Sunday with gates opening at 8:00 a.m. at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers.
