Big Lick Entertainment has announced the dates for its 2017 Flat Pickin’ Fridays country concert series at Daleville Town Center.

The five monthly shows will feature a number of bands, vendors and activities.

The Flat Pickin’ Fridays series began in 2015 as a signature, family-friendly event for Council of Community Services with Big Lick Entertainment, according to a news release from Big Lick.

Within its first year it became the council’s biggest fundraiser for non-restricted funds in over five years and attracts thousands to the Daleville Town Center Pavilion with its May thru September concerts, with 100 percent of proceeds from ticket and beverage sales benefiting the local non-profit.

This year’s lineup includes Nashville stars, regional favorites and incredible songwriters sure to entertain any patron, the announcement said.  Numerous activities for children, local craft beverages for adults and artisan food trucks will round out the evening entertainment.

The dates and lineups for 2017 are:

  • May 12: Seven Mile Ford with special guest Mason Creek
  • June 9: Natalie Brady Band with special guest Barefoot West
  • July 7: The Low Low Chariot with special guest Eleven South
  • August 11: Bobby McClendon with special guest the Floorboards

Doors open at 5 p.m. and entry is $5 with children 12 years old and under admitted free.  The event runs from 5-9 p.m.
