ABOUT HANK WILLIAMS JR:
The offspring of famous musicians often have aa hard time creating a career for themselves, yet Hank Williams, Jr. is one of the few to develop a career that is not only successful, but markedly different from his legendary father. Originally, Hank Jr. simply copied and played his father’s music, but as he grew older, he began to carve out his own niche and it was one that owed as much to country-rock as it did to honky tonk. In the late ‘70s, he retooled his image to appeal both to outlaw country fans and Rowdy southern rockers, and his makeover worked, resulting in a string of Top Ten singles – including the number one hits “Texas Women”, “Dixie on My Mind”, “All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down)”, “Honky Tonkin”, and “Born to Boogie” – that ran into the late ‘80s.
ABOUT RILEY GREEN:
Born in Jacksonville, Alabama, Riley Green was raised on the sounds of old traditional Country, Bluegrass, and Southern Gospel music. He learned the spirit of songwriting and performing at a young age while spending time with his grandfather, Bufford Green, who ran Golden Saw Music Hall. Riley shared the stage with him and other men of his generation, layering a foundation for the song he’d craft in the years to come, reflecting on the experiences of a young Southern man trying to find his place in the world. With a mixture of outlaw-rebellion and respect for tradition, Riley’s original music has already tallied over 27million stream to date while his latest music video for “Bure Me In Dixie” has been viewed over a million times since last fall. Constantly touring throughout the southeast over the past five years to thousands of fans, Riley has also built fierce support on social media. Now signed to BMLG Records, he is in the studio recording new music with award-winning music producer, Dann Huff.
ABOUT THE SOUTH DAKOTA CATTLEMEN’S FOUNDATION:
The South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation (SDCF) joined forces with Feeding South Dakota in May 2013 to create their signature event, the Prime Time Gala & Concert. The goal of this event is to not only raise critical funds for Feeding South Dakota’s mission by providing more beef to food insecure families throughout the state, but also to support the long-term viability of the beef industry by promoting the nutritional benefits of beef consumption and value of modern production. Since hosting the first Prime Time Gala & Concert in June 2014, the organization has raised over $1,768,296 for Feeding South Dakota. The Prime Time Gala & Concert also helps to further the mission of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation by supporting the South Dakota Cattlemen’s
