But it’ll happen July 26.
In conjunction with The Big 95 (WHMA 95.5 FM), up-and-coming country act Mockingbird Sun will grace the stage in a stop-off to help to promote their self-titled EP. The concert, which is slated to start at 11 a.m. and last for nearly an hour, is free to the public.
“It’s for profit for me or profit for them,” said the Peerless’ Kristy Farmer. “They’re just trying to get out in the midst of the public.”
Mockingbird Sun, a three-person band, was born out of the history of Texas-raised troubadours.
Lead singer and guitarist Charlie Berry is a graduate of Southern Methodist, where he played defensive tackle. Guitarist Brett Taylor is a Texas Christian graduate and Matthew “Truck” Roley, the son of a musician, is the only non-Texan, calling Nashville home.
The group united through collaborations with veteran country songwriter Tom Douglas, who has written songs for Alabama, Tim McGraw, Lee Ann Womack and most notably Lady Antebellum’s No. 1 hit, “I Run to You.”
Their three-part harmony has been heard all across the United States as they’ve played dive bars and state fairs and only flood damage is keeping them from opening for platinum-recording artist Toby Keith on July 29.
The song that is gaining the most traction among radio listeners is their single “Lucky Man.”
I keep it simple. I’m nothing special. She’s the prettiest girl I’ve ever seen.
She could have had her pick of the litter. She’s got no business running round with me.
Farmer said she feels the band is on the cusp of hitting the big time and compares the appearance to the performance at Saks High School by four-time Grammy award winner Taylor Swift.
The performance will take place in the bar side of the Peerless, but Farmer said it will be open to all ages and will be a non-smoking venue for the performance.
