SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. – Rural Radio-Scottsbluff announced this morning that tickets are on sale again, and a new special guest for the fourth annual Oregon Trail Days Concert in Gering this summer.
Country Music Association and Academy of Country Music-award winning artist Sawyer Brown was previously announced to headline the show on Saturday, July 10th at 8:00 p.m. at Five Rocks Amphitheater in Gering.
This morning, it was announced that young singer/songwriter Ned LeDoux, the son of the late Chris LeDoux, will serve as the opening act for the show.
The concert was originally scheduled for July 2020, but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“All tickets purchased for the original show date will be honored on the new date,” Market Manager Bill Boyer said. “Those that already have their tickets do not need to do anything, just hold on the tickets and bring them to the show.”
There is no arguing the success of Sawyer Brown. They are responsible for 19 top-ten hits spanning over two decades. Among them are three number one songs in “Step That Step”, “Some Girls Do”, and “Thank God For You.” Plus, they have over a dozen other top five songs, including “Betty’s Bein’ Bad”, “The Race is On”, “The Walk”, “The Dirt Road”, “All These Years”, “The Boys and Me”,” “This Time”, and “Treat Her Right.”
LeDoux is well respected for his high-energy live shows that mix his western roots with the rock and roll influences he acquired in his youth. He routinely headlines his own shows as well as earning coveted opening slots for Toby Keith and Garth Brooks. “I’m proud to carry on the tradition and a lot of songs that I write are going to relate with songs that my dad wrote and recorded because I lived the same life,” LeDoux said.
