This appeared in the Itawamba County Times - February 21, 2007

The annual Regional Rehabilitation gospel benefit concert to be held at Itawamba Community College will have a bluegrass twist for 2007.

The March 9, 2007 Marty Stuart-headlined concert will mark the grand opening for the Davis Event Center on the Fulton campus, and the next night will feature world-renowned bluegrass entertainers.

Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives will be the headliner at 8 p.m. Friday.

Stuart, a native of Philadelphia, has had six top 10 hits, one platinum and five gold albums, and has won four Grammy awards. He has produced for many distinguished artists, as well as having many record his songs.

Stuart’s career path led him to launch Superlatone Records, backed by Universal South Entertainment, and he has embarked on a journey to highlight Southern culture through both art and music. He has released “Badlands,” a collection of songs about Native Americans, and is publishing a collection of his photographs of Native Americans.

The Spencers and The Foyer Boyz will start Friday evening’s show with performances beginning at 5:30 p.m.

All proceeds from the ticket sales for the two-day event will go to the Regional Rehabilitation Center for operational expenses. The nonprofit long-term center offers no-cost services such as occupational, speech and physical therapy, early intervention and audiological services. Buster Davis of Fulton, Regional Rehabilitation Center board member, organizes the annual concert.
