It's almost time to roll the calendars to 2013 and that means it is time for another year of the best talent before they hit the big time up close and personal with the 1077 'GNA Rising Stars Acoustic Concert Series. Some of our past 'GNA Rising Rising Stars that we have put in front of you up close and acoustically in the GE Theater at Proctors include Lady Antebellum, Justin Moore, The Band Perry, The Eli Young Band, Chris Young, Kip Moore and many others who are now big time country stars. We listen to a lot of music trying to identify 3 or 4 baby acts each year that we know have the "it" factor and we won't disappoint you this year. Our first Rising Star Acoustic Concert will be January 10th with Colombia Records recording artist Tyler Farr. Tyler is an incredible songwriter and has a whiskey soaked voice that cuts through the clutter. He is in the pack and good friends with some of the young guns in country music and writes hit songs with the likes of Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann and Randy Houser. All of these acts have hit the big time over the last few years and we expect nothing less for Tyler Farr.
