Two musicians with roots in Columbia County will return Sunday evening.
Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley, of Lady Antebellum, both graduated from Lakeside High School in 2000 and will perform Sunday at the Columbia County Amphitheater alongside band member Hillary Scott.
"It's their coming-home show," said Sean Frantom, a partner of For the Fans Entertainment.
Georgia native Luke Bryan is the headlining act. The concert also includes music from the Thomson band 17 South.
Sunday's show will mark the third concert of the Music Evolution Series created by For the Fans Entertainment, and tickets have been selling fast, Frantom said.
"The buzz has just been overwhelming, and the ticket sales are tremendous," he said.
Frantom said the concert will be oriented toward country music.
The gates will open at 5 p.m. with the concert beginning at 6 p.m.
"The artists are going to be very friendly," Frantom said. "Most of them are from Georgia."
He said that he's received much interest from those who knew Haywood and Kelley.
"When an artist is from your area, you kind of feel like you're a part of them," Frantom said.
The next concert of the Music Evolution Series is scheduled for May 25 and features music from the Gin Blossoms, Luna Halo and the Edison Project, according to For the Fans Entertainment Web site. Tickets are available Monday.
Tickets for Sunday's concert cost $25 at the gate or $20 in advance at Wild Wing Cafe, Columbia County Community Events Building B, Merle Norman Studios in the Augusta area, and online at www.etix.com and www.forthefansentertainment.com.
