Concert association presents country star Billy Dean

The Rowan County Concert Association presents Billy Dean and his Guitar on Saturday, March 3. The concert is at 7:30 p.m. in Keppel Aduitorium on the campus of Catawba College.
Dean, a native of Quincy, Fla., moved to Nashville in 1983 and by 1990 had recorded his first top 5 hit, “Only Here for a Little While.”
He has earned numerous awards, including the Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year, “Somewhere in my Broken Heart”; Academy of Country Music’s New Male Vocalist of the Year; the Country Music Television Rising Star Award, the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) Song of the Year and a Grammy for a country tribute, “Amazing Grace.”
He‘s also appeared on numerous TV shows, as well as made-for-TV movies, including “Blue Valley Songbird,” “A Face to Kill For,” “Lois and Clark,” “One Life to Live,” “Diagnosis Murder,” “Good Morning America,” “The Tonight Show” and many others.
After 12 albums and 11 top 10 singles spanning 18 years, Dean founded the publishing company BDMG (Billy Dean Music Group). He continues to make contributions to the country music world by building brands with music and empowering children through being a spokesperson for Averitt Cares for Kids and Sunkist’s Take a Stand program.
His latest album, “Let Them Be Little,” was inspired by those closest to him: his two children, Hannah and Eli, and his wife, Stephanie.
Recently, Dean has toured with Kenny Rogers.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for students 18 and under. They are available at Salisbury Belk, Rowan Visitor Center, Literary Book Post, Frost Bites, and the Keppel box office one hour before the show. They are also available online at www.rccamusic.com.
