The 40th edition of the Country Music Show to raise money for Meadville Fraternal Order of Police Colonel Lewis Walker Lodge No. 97 is just a few months away.
This year’s show features Craig Morgan, who has 20 singles and has sold millions of albums, and opening act Larry Frick, a Nashville sensation, on March 16 at 1 and 6 p.m. at the Allegheny College auditorium in Meadville.
The Meadville FOP once again hosts the decades-long event, which is the nonprofit group’s main fundraiser. Funds raised from the show are put right back into the community and benefit youth sports teams, youth study opportunities, charity golf tournaments, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and more.
Morgan has charted 17 times on the Billboard country charts, including “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” which spent four weeks at the top of the Billboard country charts and was that publication’s No. 1 country hit of 2005.
Besides “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” six more of his singles have reached that chart’s Top Ten: “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “Little Bit of Life,” “International Harvester,” “Love Remembers,” and “Bonfire.”
Frick was a regular on stage at one of country music’s known clubs, The Longbranch Saloon, in Raleigh, N.C. He then made the part-time move to Nashville, Tenn., according to his promotional website. Many of his upcoming shows are in the southeastern part of the U.S.
Lodge 97 is one of more than 2,100 local chapters of the FOP, a national organization of sworn law enforcement officers, with more than 325,000 members.
