On Wednesday, Oct. 23, country music star Craig Morgan will perform free at 4th Street Live! in downtown Louisville on the Nissan Commercial stage as the opening concert for the Green Industry & Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO).
Morgan will perform from an impressive body of work that includes 14 top 10 hits such as Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” “Almost Home,” “That’s What I Love About Sunday” and “Tough.” He’ll also sing some of the songs from his newly released album, This Ole Boy.
A multi-talented performer, he also stars in “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors” on the Outdoor Channel, which is a 30-minute reality show that offers fans a fly-on-the-wall look at his extreme lifestyle at home, touring and in the great outdoors – hunting, aerial bow fishing, bungee jumping and skydiving. Currently in its third season, the award-winning TV show airs Sundays at 11 p.m. eastern time on Outdoor Channel.
Entertaining GIE+EXPO attendees on Thursday night, Oct. 24 at 4th Street Live! will be legendary music icons Three Dog Night. They claim some of the most astonishing chart statistics in popular music.
Three Dog Night, over a span of 40 years, has racked up 21 consecutive Top 40 hits including three number one singles, 11 top 10s and 12 straight RIAA-Certified Gold LPs. With their customary impeccable harmonies and exciting arrangements, they will perform fan favorites including “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” “Joy to The World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala,” “One,” “Liar,” “Celebrate” and new songs including "Heart of Blues" and an a-cappella ballad, "Prayer of the Children.”
