For the sixth 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, March 28 for all MATS 2014 attendees. Concertgoers will be treated to an outstanding musical performance as two incredibly talented artists take the stage to put on an exciting event for all the country music fans in attendance.
The evening kicks off with Chris Hennessee, a talented singer, songwriter, and musician from Nashville, TN, who has recently opened for Jamey Johnson and toured the nation. Chris is sure to entertain with his gritty style of the classic country sound as he brings the Music City to Louisville. All in attendance will enjoy Chris’ soon-to-be hits, such as "Georgiana", "Better Days" and the acoustically driven ballad, "Red Dress".
Up next, Gretchen Wilson, the ACM, CMA, AMA, Billboard, and Grammy award-winning superstar will headline the free Mobil Delvac concert with songs spanning her storied career as one of the most influential female country music singers of the last decade. Performing her numerous top 10 hits, including "Redneck Woman", "Here for the Party", and "Homewrecker" along with material from her latest albums, "Right on Time" and "Under the Covers", Gretchen will showcase the talent that previously earned her the Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, ACM Award for Top New Artist, and CMA Award for Female Vocalist of the Year, and why she was hand-selected to perform for attendees of the 2014 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 (March 28, 2014). Complimentary tickets will be distributed, while supplies last, from the Mobil Delvac Booth #18160 in the North Wing during show hours.
