Country music star Brett Eldredge will perform a free concert, open to the public, at 8 p.m., June 9, on Fort Riley’s Custer Hill.
The free concert is part of a military appreciation event at Fort Riley, sponsored by PlayStation and held during 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley’s annual Victory Week.
Titled “Salute to our Troops,” the three day event will also include the “Road to Greatness” gaming truck, to be located at the Warrior Zone, Fort Riley.
Brett Eldredge, a native of Illinois, is an up and coming country performer. His resume includes a Country Music Association Awards’ nomination for “New Artist of the Year”. His hits include the singles “Don’t Ya” and “Beat of the Music.” His debut album titled “Bring You Back” was released on Atlantic Records. His act is characterized by his high energy, something fans of Taylor Swift found out first-hand when he opened 19 dates on the superstar’s The RED Tour in 2013.
“Everything it takes to get to wherever I’m going to play – every airplane and car I ride in – is so worth it once I’m able to get up on that stage,” says Eldredge. “I want everybody in the crowd to feel the energy that I’m feeling from them.”
Carly Evans will be Live On-Location at Custer Hill from 6-8pm.
