Last year’s inaugural event at Dickey-Stephens was a hit, even though organizers ran out of chips early in the day. It raised more than $5,000 to Harmony Health Clinic, last year’s non-profit beneficiary.

The Academy also today announced regional spin-offs at the Snowden Grove Amphitheater in Southaven, Miss. near Memphis and the Arkansas Music Pavilion in Fayetteville on September 3 and September 10, respectively.
