Photo: Jimmy Fortune
When the Statler Brothers retired in 2002, Fortune continued with an extensive performance schedule throughout the U.S. and Canada. He has lost none of his crystal clear and remarkable high tenor range, but has extended it to a creditable baritone as well.Jimmy and The Statler Brothers were inducted into the GMA (Gospel Music Association) Hall of Fame in 2007, and inducted into the CMA (Country Music Association) Hall of Fame in 2008.
The opening act for the concert will be Prairie Friends, a local southern gospel quartet. This spirited group will be a crowd pleaser. Thresher Music of Scottsbluff has donated a reconditioned Yamaha Guitar that will be autographed by Jimmy Fortune. It will be auctioned off at the concert.
Tickets are available at the Farm and Ranch Museum by calling 308-436-1989, KNEB radio, all Platte Valley Bank locations, and Pinnacle Bank in Mitchell. Admission is $25 per adult ($25 at gate) and $10 for children ages 6-12. Children 5 & under are free. Concessions will also be available.
This concert is sponsored by Regional West Medical Center, 21st Century Equipment, WESTCO, and Panhandle Co-op.
