“Live from Nashville” takes the stage at the Performing Arts Center on Jan. 30
Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) goes country with “Live from Nashville,” an evening of country music and fun, on Jan. 30. A wildly popular and critically acclaimed performance, “Live from Nashville” treats guests to an exciting song and dance spectacle celebrating the musical tradition that gave Nashville the nickname “Music City.”
Twelve talented musicians, singers and dancers take the audience on a two-stepping tour of the famous city’s country music scene with phenomenal fiddling, fancy footwork and top-flight vocals. Featuring treasured standards by artists including Jimmy Rodgers, Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, rock-country classics from The Eagles and The Allman Brothers, and new hits by modern artists Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, this rollicking night of tunes has something for audiences of all ages.
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a Country Cake Walk. All audience members are invited to join in on the fun. A cowboy boot-shaped cake, custom swag and other prizes will be awarded to the winner. Directly following, there will also be a Best Boots contest for all audience members. The winner will be the patron with the best, flashiest or most interesting pair of boots. Prizes up for grabs for this contest include tickets to the PAC, custom swag and more. The selfie station will record all the boot-scootin’ fun.
Following these pre-show social events, cast members will take the stage in the theater at 7:30 p.m. With performers fully costumed and choreographed in the Music City tradition, the production is a full-scale dazzling event that leaves toes tapping, adrenaline pumping and memories churning.
Tickets are $24 for patrons, $21 for Georgia Southern faculty and staff, $10 for Georgia Southern students and $12 for youth.
