2017 CONCERT LINE-UP
For the ninth consecutive year, the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) is proud to announce that the team behind Mobil Delvac™ heavy-duty diesel engine oil will present a free concert on Friday, March 24 for all MATS 2017 attendees. Concertgoers will be treated to an outstanding musical performance as two incredibly talented acts take the stage to put on an exciting event for everyone in attendance.
The evening kicks off with Tony Justice, an East Tennessee man, via California and Kentucky, and American Trucker magazine’s 2016 “Trucker of the Year.” With straight up honesty in his songs, Tony Justice, a second generation trucker, not only writes about the trucking life, he lives it. With the entire industry behind him he is sure to be a fantastic opening act!
Up next, Thompson Square will headline the free Mobil Delvac Driver Appreciation concert. These International Country music stars have topped the radio charts across the United States and Canada with #1 hits “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not,” “If I Didn’t Have You” and “Everything I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About.” In all, Thompson Square has scored three #1 hits, five Top 15 hits, and seven mainstream industry awards. These and other hits will showcase the talent that twice earned them the ACM Award for “Vocal Duo of the Year” and why they were chosen to headline the free concert for the 2017 MATS.
The concert will be held on-site in Freedom Hall of the Kentucky Exposition Center immediately following the Friday session of the Mid-America Trucking Show (March 24, 2017). Complimentary tickets will be distributed, while supplies last, from the Mobil Delvac Booth #18160 in the North Wing during show hours.
