Highway 101 to perform at the Ozark Folk Center State Park

The Ozark Folk Center State Park is proud to welcome Highway 101 as part of their Celebrity Concert Series on August 10, 2013 at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6 p.m.

From the moment they formed, Highway 101 presented a new approach to country music. The group’s blend of country roots and tradition, along with rock ‘n roll energy, has helped catapult the country genre forward. Their level of success was more than constant as Highway 101 continued to climb the charts with their sophomore release, Highway 101-2, which spawned four top 10 singles including the number one hit “(Do You Love Me) Just Say Yes”. 1988 provided more than hit singles as the group was recognized by their peers, receiving the nod as “Vocal Group of the Year” from both the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. They were also acknowledged at the Grammy Awards with a nomination for “Album of the Year” and “Single of the Year”. In 1993 while on Liberty Records, Highway 101 was again nominated for “Vocal Group of the Year” by the ACM and CMA.

Cactus, Curtis, Andy and Nikki have a new album in the works. According to Highway 101, the band’s belief in the music remains their constant vision. “We still share the sincerity about the music and never pretend to be anything but what we are— a band that loves to play!” Local guitarist and Ozark Folk Center State Park musician Charlie White was a member of 101 from 1997-2002 and will be performing with the group during their August 10th performance at the Ozark Folk Center State Park.

Premium reserved seats will be available for this event at $30.00. General admission seats are $20.00.
