‘Let Freedom Sing’ Summer Concert Series Concludes This Saturday
The third and final concert of the 2016 Let Freedom Sing Summer Concert Series is going down this Saturday, August 13, at Freedom Crossing at Fort Bliss. This year's season finale features David Nail and Overton Road.
Nail made his big splash on the country music scene with 2009’s top ten hit “Red Light.” Since then he’s had two more top ten hits, including “Let it Rain,” which hit number one. Overton Road is comprised of 6 guys who describe themselves as “A Damn Good Country Rock Band” -- a reference to the strong rock influence in their contemporary country sound.
Let Freedom Sing takes place on the event lawn of the military base open-air mall. The show is free and open to the public.
