Country music star, Craig Morgan, is slated to take center stage for a live country music concert Wednesday, Sept. 2 for the 62nd Farm Progress Show.
The show, known as the nation's greatest ag showcase, runs September 1, 2 and 3, at its Progress City location in Decatur, Ill.
"The Farm Progress Show is delighted to offer a concert again in Decatur," says Don Tourte, Penton Agriculture, vice president and market leader.
"The concert is a great addition to the jam-packed schedule of the Farm Progress Show. It's a perfect way to share an enjoyable evening with Farm Progress Show exhibitors, visitors and members of the Decatur and surrounding communities."
Craig Morgan isn't your typical country music star. His music ties to his varied life experiences as a soldier, sheriff's deputy, EMT, adventurer, TV host, motocross racer, outdoorsman, farmer and family man. Morgan's hit songs include "Almost Home," "Redneck Yacht Club," "International Harvester," and "That's What I Love About Sunday." "I'm an American country boy who loves his country, his family and his God," says Morgan, "and all of those things collectively dictate who I am."
Concert location and timing
The concert will be held near Richland Community College, just south of the Farm Progress Show exhibit field. Concert goers will park in the same lots used for show visitors. The concert gates will open at 4 p.m. with the opening act beginning at 5:30 p.m. and Craig Morgan taking the stage at 6:30 p.m. The opening act will be named closer to show time.
All tickets are general admission and lawn seating. There will be no ticket refunds or exchanges. The concert is a separate event from the show and a separate admission ticket is needed to attend each event. The public is welcome at the show and concert.
"We are pleased to showcase Syngenta and, for the second year, our Golden Harvest and NK seed brands during this year's 2015 Farm Progress Show," said Melissa Lord, customer event & tradeshow lead, Syngenta.
"We are thrilled to welcome Craig Morgan as the featured artist. Customers and fans alike are looking forward to a special evening of entertainment, which Syngenta is happy to provide alongside its mission to deliver top-performing hybrids and varieties that will help them grow more corn and soybeans."
