Country Music Stars Invade The Hamptons

The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC) is injecting some twang and southern style into the music scene in the Hamptons this summer. The WHBPAC will be hosting three concerts that will feature four of country music's biggest stars spaced out over the next few months. All of the concerts will be played at the Mollie Parnis Auditorium at 8:30 p.m.

Lyle Lovett of Klein, Texas will kick things off with his acoustic group on Sunday, July 14. A four-time Grammy winner, Lovett is known for his larger than life characters and his ability to seamlessly fuse multiple genres ranging from swing to gospel to blues. He will be performing his old hits along with selections from his 2012 album "Release Me."

Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell will follow soon after, performing on Saturday, July 20. The pair performed together years ago with the Hot Band and have each gone on to become country legends in their own right. They will reunite this summer in the Hamptons to perform classic country ballads and duets in the Mollie Parnis Auditorium. The pair will be playing music from their new album, Old Yellow Moon, released earlier this year.

Vince Gill will wrap up the country music spree with a concert on Sunday, August 11. The winner of more Grammy awards than any other male country performer and an inductee to the Country Music Hall of Fame, Gill is a bonafide superstar in the country music scene. Known as much for his lyrical mastery as he is for his singing ad guitar ability, Vince Gill will provide a fitting finale to the country music binge.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.whbpac.org, through the box office at 631-288-1500, or in person at 76 Main Street, Westhampton Beach.
