The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets.
Fields got his first guitar at the age of 12 and began learning old Keith Whitley songs. He started a band with a few buddies in high school when he began writing songs about his reflections and his life. In 2010 he began playing at local clubs.
He entered a national contest called Radio Lia’s “Your Big Break.” He went up against hundreds of contestants and was selected by fans and listeners as the winner this year.
Kyle will now have the opportunity to meet with some of Nashville's biggest record labels in hopes of making his dream become a reality and add the next sign to the Country Music Highway. His debut independent album is expected to be released in mid-2011 with his original music. “Music is my passion. This is what I love to do, this is who I am," Fields said.
