The 3rd Annual PORTER WAGONER MEMORIAL ARTISTS & ANGLERS FISHING TOURNAMENT will be held TUESDAY, JUNE 8th at NASHVILLE’s J. PERCY PRIEST LAKE. Country artists like BOBBY BARE, MEL TILLIS, ASH BOWERS, JEFF COOK, EASTON CORBIN, ANDY GRIGGS, WADE HAYES and more will pair up with professional anglers to compete for the biggest catch of the day.
Due to the recent flooding in MUSIC CITY, the post-tournament event will be moved from the BASS PRO SHOPS at OPRY MILLS to a new location that will be announced next week. A special pre-tournament concert and reception will be held at the NASHVILLE PALACE on MONDAY, JUNE 7th at 7p (CT). Admission is $10, and a silent auction will also be held, while the artists and anglers mingle with the fans. All proceeds from the event will go toward flood relief efforts.
