Stars Go Dim will give a community concert on Sunday | News, Sports, Jobs
Stars Go Dim takes a trip from the bright lights of Nashville to the dark skies of Warren County.
The concert featuring a popular Christian band will begin at 7 p.m. on Sunday, August 14 at the Praise Fellowship HUB in Russell.
“We are in the middle of our summer show series,” said singer Chris Cleveland. “We’re releasing and supporting a brand new album – Grace in the Wilderness – sharing some of the new songs that come from it.”
They will also perform some of their most familiar favorites – “a lot of songs they heard on the radio” and “some of the worship songs I write for other great artists”, said Cleveland.
He expects some crowd participation at the event. “One of my favorite things to do is sing with people” he said.
Many performing groups are still not on tour yet, so a chance to bring Stars Go Dim to Warren County was too good to pass up.
“They are very popular in the world of Christian music”, said outreach coordinator Steve Younger. “Not everyone is starting to go out. It was an opportunity to bring in a popular group.
“It’s for the community” says younger. “It’s a great message. It’s quite affordable.
Cleveland and Stars Go Dim view the chances of playing in small towns and rural areas as opportunities.
“A lot of places we play are like that,” said Cleveland. “These are the best places to come. People are so prepared and ready to come together and have a good time.
“When we can come to some places that are off the beaten track, I feel people appreciate and respond a little more than in big cities,” he said. “I really like that.”
The Collective, made up of local musicians, will open the concert.
General admission tickets are $20, children under 7 are $5, and the group rate is $15.
The youngest credited sponsors Gaughn’s Drug Store, Armor Construction, J Willys Que and Cream and Tim Holter Financial Services for their support.
Advance tickets are available at the church. Anyone with questions can contact Younger at (814) 706-1343.
“It’s a great gig for Warren,” says younger. “I hope people take advantage of it.”
“It’s going to be a great night” said Cleveland.
