At 3:30 p.m., the headliner, John Michael Montgomery will take the stage. Montgomery was born and raised in Kentucky and has had more than 30 singles on the Billboard country charts including 13 top ten country hits and five number one country hits. Montgomery also had two Billboard country music singles of the year with “I Swear” in 1994 and “Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)” in 1995. He has also received many awards throughout his career.
The concert is free and space will be limited. There will be no seating. Concert goers are advised to bring a lawn chair or blanket. Concessions will be available.
The Beaver Dam Tourism Commission is using the free concert to announce and kick-off the city’s plans to construct an amphitheater at the park so this type of event can happen on a more regular basis.
“We are hoping to get community support behind the construction of the theater,” Beaver Dam Mayor Paul Sandefur said.
