Country music star Dustin Lynch will be the latest in a string of country artists to perform in concert during the week of the John Deere Classic to help raise money for the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund.
The 32-year-old Nashville singer-songwriter and his band are scheduled to entertain fans on Wednesday, July 10, at the Rust Belt, a recently-opened concert venue in East Moline. Tickets are available now online here.
“The John Deere Classic is thrilled to bring Dustin Lynch to the Quad Cities during tournament week both for the enjoyment of his fans and the benefit of the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund,” said John Deere Classic tournament director Clair Peterson. “Dustin is an up-and-coming act in country music and is known for putting on a great show. We can’t wait to see him perform at the Rust Belt.”
Lynch released his fourth album, Ridin’ Roads, on Broken Bow records on March 9, 2019. It follows his self-titled debut album in 2012, Where It’s At in 2014, and Current Mood in 2017, all of which reached the Top 5 on the Country album charts. He has had six singles hit No. 1 on the U.S. Country Airplay chart. In 2014, he won the Top New Artist of the Year award from the Academy of Country Music. In 2018, he became a member of Nashville’s famed Grand Ole Opry.
A native of Tullahoma, Tennessee, Lynch played on the golf team at Lipscomb University in Nashville while pursuing a pre-med curriculum and playing country music locally, including at the famed Bluebird Café, where the careers of many a country star have been launched. He will be playing in the Wednesday Pro-Am.
In the last three years, the John Deere Classic has hosted charity concerts featuring country stars Jake Owen, Cole Swindell and Lee Brice, which have helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for the Bonus Fund.
The John Deere Classic, which includes Birdies for Charity, is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization located in the John Deere Classic tournament offices at 15623 Coaltown Road, East Moline, Illinois. Since its founding in 1971, the tournament has helped raise $107 million for charity.
