First Free ‘Let Freedom Sing’ Concert of 2016 Is This Saturday – Tyler Farr to Perform
Get ready to two-step and boot scoot this Saturday night with the return of the Let Freedom Sing Summer Concert Series to Fort Bliss.
The summer concert series, which is free and open to the public, kicks off the 2016 season with one of country music’s hottest rising stars, Tyler Farr.
Farr made his big splash on the music scene with 2014's top ten hit “Redneck Crazy." Since then he's had two more top ten hits, including “A Guy Walks Into a Bar,” which recently hit number one.
Let Freedom Sing takes place on the event lawn of Freedom Crossing at Fort Bliss. Farr is the first of several national acts who will appear at the open-air mall this summer. Two other free shows are scheduled for July and August. Those dates and acts will be announced in the coming weeks.
El Paso’s own Joe Barron will open the show beginning at 7 p.m.
