Homecoming weekend at Cumberland University will conclude with a concert on Memorial Hall Lawn. Great bands and entertainers will perform for the first ever “LIVE on the Lawn” Concert. The event begins at 5:00 pm on October 2 and will feature Capitol Nashville Recording Artist Walker Hayes as he performs his quickly-rising new single “Pants” and many more. Other performances will include singer/songwriter Jessica Campbell, who recently had a song featured on ABC’s “Ugly Betty,” backed by her band Rye Mouth.
Chris Burke, who was selected from a contest sponsored by American Songwriter magazine, will be performing as well as two local bands affiliated with Cumberland students – Flamingo and Sleepy Eyed Fox. Feel free to bring your blankets and lawn chairs as you enjoy some great music on Memorial Hall Lawn. Advance tickets are available at Wilson Bank & Trust locations and through the Cumberland Alumni Office at 615.547.1253 for $10 per person. Tickets at the gate will be $15 per person. The concert will be free to Cumberland students with a valid student ID and to children 10 and under. LIVE on the Lawn is presented by Cumberland University, American Songwriter magazine, and WANT-FM Radio.
