Josh Thompson And Lynyrd Skynyrd To Rock The Beach
August 12, 2010 at 6:37 AM (PT)
COLUMBIA/NASHVILLE artist JOSH THOMPSON will perform with LOUD & PROUD/ROADRUNNER RECORDS group LYNYRD SKYNYRD at the free ROCK THE BEACH concert on SUNDAY (8/15). This is the second installment of the free concert series held to promote tourism. The OKALOOSA COUNTY TOURIST DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL and EMERALD COAST CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU hope the concert will bring another economic boost to the area to help offset the oil spill crisis.
The show takes place in DESTIN, FL at 6p (CT) on the beach behind the boardwalk on OKALOOSA ISLAND. Donations made at the concert will be accepted for the EMERALD COAST WILDLIFE REFUGE.
THOMPSON said: “Playing ‘Rock The Beach’ is exciting to me for two reasons. First, I have watched the news and seen the devastation that has been going on in the Gulf for months. To have the chance to be a part of something that will in some way, hopefully a big way, help with the recovery is amazing. And second, I get to share a stage with LYNYRD SKYNYRD – what can you say about that except ‘AWESOME!’”
