amy grant mill town music hall bremen ga

Amy Grant
May 2nd - Saturday; 8:00pm
Mill Town Music Hall - Bremen


Conventional wisdom has it that Amy Grant put Contemporary Christian music on the map. She surely did that, achieving such breakthroughs as being the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit #1 pop and the first to perform at the Grammy's. Yet perhaps her greatest accomplishment was to open the door for a flood of other artists in pop as well as rock to sing about faith and soul and family and still grasp stardom. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past couple of decades is assured.

patsy cline dallas theater

May 15th; Friday; 7:30pm
May 16th; Saturday; 7:00pm
Dallas Theater


As one of the first country stars to cross over into mainstream popular appeal in the 1960s, Patsy Cline left an indelible mark on popular music. Still among the most influential stars of any generation, with her passing, she left a family and a mystery behind, as fans wondered about the true character of the singer, who was often socially withdrawn.


The show is based on a true story about Cline's friendship with a fan from Houston named Louise Seger, played by Marion De Sio, who befriended the star in a Texas honky-tonk in l961, and continued a correspondence with Cline until her death.


It is a story of a friendship between two women of the 50's who were thrust into a world of fame and isolation in an era when it wasn't popular for a woman to "make it on her own". With a gutsy, humorous, banter, Louise tells their story. A story complete with true emotion and audience participation, a story that will not be forgotten.


It includes many of Patsy's unforgettable hits such as "Crazy," "I Fall to Pieces," "Sweet Dreams," and "Walking After Midnight" -- 27 songs in all. Backlined by The Bodacious Bobcats Band.
