Jill Brown, Executive Director of First Tee of Augusta, announced that the Rock Fore! Dough concert will move to the Lady Antebellum Amphitheater in Evans. The concert will be held on Tuesday of Masters week.

A popular annual Masters Week concert is moving to Columbia County.

The First Tee of Augusta officials announced Tuesday morning that the ninth annual Drive for Show, Rock Fore! Dough this year will be held April 9 at the Lady Antebellum Pavilion in the Evans Towne Center Park.

Performers announced Tuesday include Grace Potter and Needtobreathe. Tickets go on sale Feb. 23.

The concert previously was held at The First Tee facility on Damascus Road in Augusta.

“Our infrastructure is not naturally suited to be a concert venue,” First Tee Executive Director Jill Brown said during the announcement at Towne Center Park. “This is a beautiful facility. It is a great venue for guests and it’s a great venue for music.”

Staging the event at First Tee long has been a challenge for organizers, who were forced to rent expensive portable stages for performers, who have included Zac Brown Band, Darius Rucker and Cheap Trick.

It’s the third major event that has moved to the Evans park, along with Thunder Over Augusta and Papa Joe’s Banjo-B-Que.

Proceeds from the annual Rock Fore! Dough support The First Tee of Augusta, the Augusta chapter of The First Tee Network.
