Country Stars Coming to Region Thanks to The Pinnacle and WXBQ!
Joe Nichols and Nate Barnes in concert July 31st at The Pinnacle

(Bristol, TN)— The Pinnacle, the region’s premier lifestyle center, has partnered with WXBQ to bring a live outdoor concert experience for the whole family on Saturday, July 31st beginning at 8pm. The concert is FREE for all visitors and will be general admission seating with gates opening at 7pm.

“The Pinnacle is always ready to offer exciting experiences to the region.  With many new shopping, dining, and entertainment partners who have opened locations within The Pinnacle, there’s always reason to come visit,” says Heather Hill, Property Manager at The Pinnacle.

The concert will open with country music artist, Nate Barnes, who will bring his working-class storytelling sound to the audience.  Musically influenced by both his grandparents, Barnes grew up singing with his family after Sunday dinners while Motown played on their radio.  Nate released his first EP with Quartz Hill Records, You Ain’t Pretty just this month.

After Barnes’ performance, the stage will be set for headliner Joe Nichols who has been a country music mainstay for over two decades.  With a half-dozen number 1 singles and ten top 10 hits, Nichols has been delighting audiences with a sound that honors his heroes—Merle Haggard, George Jones, and Buck Owens. With chart-topping singles like Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off, Nichols will bring a performance that’s sure to delight audiences of any age.
