COOKEVILLE – Hip Cookeville is proud to announce the return of live music to the Cookeville Performing Arts Center (CPAC) with an abbreviated Second Annual Hip Cookeville Concert Series. The opening show will be Saturday, Sept. 26 featuring the Petty Junkies in two socially distanced, but melt-your-face-off rock and roll shows.
If you haven’t had a chance to see a Petty Junkies show, expect to be wowed. All the musicians in this band are touring professionals with some of the world’s most dynamic artists such as Garth Brooks, Peter Frampton and Reba McIntire. Many will remember lead singer Brady Seals as the lead singer from Little Texas. Their show is full throttle from start to finish and it is as if they wrote Tom Petty’s songs when they perform them.
“We are excited to bring this quality of music and artists to Cookeville for our community to enjoy,” said Blair Dudley, CEO of Hip Cookeville. “There is no need to drive long distances in terrible traffic and pay high parking and ticket prices when we can bring these shows to your back door.”
The second show in the Second Annual Hip Cookeville Concert Series will be Oct. 16 with the artist to be announced.
“Thank you to the Hip Cookeville Community, for coming out to our events and proving what an arts and music loving town we are,” added Dudley.
