Byrd, Chesnutt Home for the Holiday

Tracy Byrd and Mark Chesnutt will perform individually and together at a Labor Day music festival in their hometown of Beaumont, Texas. Monday’s (Sept. 1) festival will also include appearances by Hootie & the Blowfish, the Marshall Tucker Band and others. A portion of the proceeds will go to Jared Clayton, who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. He is the son of Officer Darrell Clayton, a 21-year employee of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. “Me and Chesnutt have looked for an opportunity to perform together in our hometown for a long time,” Byrd says, “and we’re happy that we were finally able to pull it off. Our goal is to give the hardworking families of Southeast Texas a great time on their day off from work.” 08/29/03
