2016 Concert Line-Up

For the eighth consecutive year, the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) is proud to announce that the team behind Mobil Delvac™ heavy-duty diesel engine oil will present a free concert on Friday, April 1 for all MATS 2016 attendees. Concertgoers will be treated to an outstanding musical performance as two incredibly talented acts take the stage to put on an exciting event for everyone in attendance.

Craig Morgan will headline the free Mobil Delvac Driver Appreciation concert with songs from his hit albums spanning 15 years in country music and television. As one of country’s best-loved artists, Craig Morgan has gained fame with broad radio airplay of his signature top-10 hits: “Bonfire,” “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “Love Remembers”, “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” and “International Harvester”. These and other hits will showcase the talent that earned Craig induction into the Grand Ole Opry in 2008 and why he was chosen to headline the free concert for the 2016 MATS.

The concert will be held on-site in Freedom Hall of the Kentucky Exposition Center immediately following the Friday edition of the Mid-America Trucking Show (April 1, 2016). Complimentary tickets will be distributed, while supplies last, from the Mobil Delvac Booth #18160 in the North Wing during show hours.
