RIDGELAND, Miss. -- July 29, 2013

The Swon Brothers, fresh off their top three finish on NBC’s “The Voice” last
month, will perform along with Meridian native and Nashville singer-songwriter
Cheryl LuQuire during a special Labor Day weekend concert at the Renaissance
in Ridgeland.

The Oklahoma duo of Zach and Colton Swon, who notched by far the best showing
by a duo with their third place finish on the hit reality TV singing contest,
and LuQuire will join headliner Darius Rucker, one of the hottest stars in
contemporary country music, and rising country artists Liz Davis and Russell
Dickerson on stage for the Sept. 1 concert.

Dubbed “Darius Rucker Live,” the starting time for the concert sponsored by C
Spire Wireless and presented by Samsung has been moved up to 5:15 p.m. with
the addition of the two latest country music artists. Gates will now open at 4
p.m., 30 minutes earlier than previously announced.

Tickets for the concert, which will be held in the green open space area just
off Highland Colony Parkway between the Renaissance shopping center and the C
Spire corporate headquarters office building, are on sale through
Ticketmaster. Tickets are $30 each for general admission and $60 each for a
limited number of premium VIP passes, which offer special access to the
Samsung Experience tent in a fenced area near the stage and complimentary food
and beverages.

Rucker, the former front man for Hootie and the Blowfish and the first black
artist in 26 years since Charley Pride’s “Night Games” in 1983 to score a No.
1 country single with 2008’s “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” is coming
off a nationwide tour to promote his new album, True Believers, which debuted
at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in May.

One of the album’s tracks, bluegrass-infused “Wagon Wheel,” has landed Rucker,
a South Carolina native, his sixth No. 1 country hit and his second platinum
single. Rucker’s rich baritone cover of the classic tune co-written by Bob
Dylan and the Old Crow Medicine Show Band’s Ketch Secor has won universal
praise and taken the country music scene by storm.

Sharing the stage with Rucker, The Swon Brothers and LuQuire will be a two
other rising country music artists, including Madison, Mississippi native Liz
Davis, who made the top 20 in the third season of NBC’s The Voice singing
competition, and singer-song writer Russell Dickerson, who recently signed a
deal with one of Nashville’s most successful independent music publishers.

Samsung plans to showcase its extensive suite of phones, tablets, laptops,
televisions and other electronics and accessories at the tent during the
concert – giving consumers the chance to get a hands-on experience with the
latest and most popular digital communications, audio and video devices.

“We’re excited about partnering with Samsung to feature their advanced
technology and to bring Darius Rucker and these other artists to the stage in
Mississippi as they represent some of the best in contemporary country music
today,” said Jim Richmond, vice president of Corporate Communications for C
Spire Wireless.

Richmond said industry research, including Arbitron’s 2013 “Radio Today”
report, shows that country music is the most popular format in the U.S. today
among all age groups and listeners. “Folks around here are passionate about
their sports and their music – so providing opportunities for them to enjoy a
premium entertainment experience is another way for us to engage with music
fans throughout the region,” he said.
