For the 5th 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 22 to all attendees of the 2013 MATS. Concertgoers will be electrified as two incredibly talented acts hit the stage to put on an exciting event for all country music fans in attendance.
The 2013 concert kicks off with The Diesel Outlaws, a seasoned group of musicians, singers, and songwriters from Nashville, Tenn., brought to Louisville to warm up the crowd with their collection of songs for and about trucking. Next up, CMA, CMT, and ACM-award nominee Randy Houser will headline the free Mobil Delvac concert with songs from his new album, "How Country Feels," and past hits from his albums "Anything Goes" and "They Call Me Cadillac." Randy will showcase the reasons he has been referred to as "one of the best in the new crop of country singer-songwriters" to all in attendance. With his single "How Country Feels" currently charting at #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart and his album hitting stores this week, Randy's career trajectory is on the rise and he is sure to put on a great show for MATS Attendees.
"We are excited once again for this year's line-up of country music acts," said Toby Young, President of Exhibit Management Associates, producers of the Mid-America Trucking Show. "Mobil Delvac is bringing another great event to MATS and we know that our attendees will appreciate the free concert as much as MATS and Mobil Delvac appreciate them."
"The team behind Mobil Delvac heavy duty diesel engine oil is honored to have the opportunity to bring the Driver Appreciation Concert to MATS for a fifth consecutive year. It's an incredible opportunity for us to display our appreciation of the hardworking men and women that play a vital role in our country's economy out on the road," said Marci Crigger, Commercial Vehicle Lubricants Marketing Advisor, ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants and Specialties Marketing Company, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation. "MATS is an event we look forward to each year, and we're especially excited to deliver fantastic country music acts to the drivers and their families. We can't wait to take in another amazing concert alongside them, as well as our many other friends in the industry."
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 22, 2013). Complimentary tickets will be distributed, while supplies last, from the Mobil Delvac Booth #18160 in the North Wing during show hours.
