The Legacy of the Plains Museum has announced an August 29th concert featuring legendary country music singer and songwriter Marty Stuart. The concert will be held to benefit the capital projects at the new museum. Concert Committee Chair Barb Martinson says Stuart will perform at the Five Rocks Amphitheater in Gering along with a yet to be announced opening act.

Stuart is known for his eclectic merging of rockabilly, honky tonk, and traditional country music. In the early 1990s, he had a successful string of country hits including "Tempted", "Hillbilly Rock", "Cry, Cry,Cry". "Western Girls" and "The Whiskey Ain't Working." Stuart currently has a successful half hour show on cable channel RFD.

The museum plans to begin selling tickets in mid-February, just in time for giving on Valentine's Day. Tickets are $25 for adults, $10 for children age six through 12, and those 5 and under will be free. The concert is sponsored by Westco, 21st Century Equipment and Regional West Medical Center. Fremont Motors is paying for the cost of the sound and light system used that night
