MumFest’s 2016 Kickoff Concert is Friday, October 7 and features a country music line-up that includes headliner Eric Paslay, as well as up and coming Jordan Davis and Emily Minor.
Paslay has written 6 number 1country songs for groups like Rascal Flatts, Lady Antebellum and Eli Young Band. Two years ago he moved from back stage to center stage with his own number 1hit “Friday Nights” off of his critically acclaimed debut album “Eric Paslay”. In July he released “Angels in this Town” which is expected to rise through the charts. According to Buddy Bengel, Chair of the MumFest Kickoff Concert, “Paslay is one of the best performers and songwriters in the industry. This will be the ‘can’t miss’ concert event of the year.”
Since moving to Nashville 4 years ago, Jordan Davis has toured non-stop with artists like Chase Rice, David Nail, and The Cadillac Three. He recently signed with Universal and is currently recording his debut album. Jordan expects to release his first single shortly.
The final addition to the line-up is eastern NC’s favorite female country vocalist, Emily Minor. A Top 50 finalist on American Idol in 2007, Minor is a sought after performer on the country music circuit.
