The legendary Dolly Parton will headline a new series of concerts at the Norton Center for the Arts at Centre College.
The Norton Center partners with First Southern National Bank to present 'Southern Nights,' the major new series that will bring leading country and popular music stars to Centre College. The Charlie Daniels Band and Vince Gill also are scheduled to perform this fall.
Parton inaugurates the new series Sept. 17 with the only Kentucky performance on her 'Vintage Tour,' arranged to introduce her new 'Those Were the Days' album, which is due for release in October.
The series continues with The Charlie Daniels Band on Oct. 27. Daniels' 1979 hit, 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia,' is is one of the most recognizable songs of the century and topped both the country and pop charts, and won a Grammy Award. The band's unique style touches on everything from country to rock and jazz, folk to western swing, and honky-tonk to gospel.
Daniels also has been known for his philanthropy. A $100,000 gift this month to the Galilean Home in Casey County captured local headlines.
Daniels' special guests for the Newlin Hall concerts will be The Winter Brothers Band.
