CODY BELEW & THE MERCERS
7 p.m., Wildwood Park. $15 adv., $20 d.o.s., $50 V.I.P.

Belew, that blue-eyed crooner/soul shouter/southern rocker/gospel wailer/country charmer/all-around musical chameleon is getting ready to pack it up and move to Nashville, Tenn., the one and only Music City, U.S.A. And after spending years as a steady-gigging staple in local clubs, he’s bowing out with a big one. This concert — branded, a la “The Last Waltz,” as “Never Can Say Goodbye” — also kicks off Wildwood Park’s year-long “Emerging Artists” concert series, which will showcase some more of the extra-extraordinary musical talents around the state. Rodney Block and the Real Music Lovers open the night with horn-driven soul/jazz fusion.

Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
