Country duo ‘Halfway to Hazard’ to perform at DelGrosso’s

Country recording artists, Halfway to Hazard will perform two concerts at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park on Sunday, July 13 at 3 and 7 p.m.
According to information from the CMT website, “Halfway to Hazard is made up of Chad Warrix and David Tolliver, who were raised about 50 miles apart in an area near Hazard, Ky.
“Tolliver attended college in Kentucky, but Warrix moved to Nashville to study the music business at Belmont University. However, when Tolliver decided to pursue a music career, he moved to Nashville and eventually connected with Warrix. The phrase that became the name of the band is the opening lyric of ‘Cold,’ the first song they wrote together.
“After their own bands dissolved, they started performing together in Nashville clubs and attracted label attention, eventually signing with Mercury Nashville. Tim McGraw and Byron Gallimore co-produced their first album, which will be released in August 2007.”
DelGrosso’s Amusement Park is excited to welcome the duo to the stage this summer.
Other country artists who have performed at the park include American Idol contestant Josh Gracin, along with Jimmy Wayne, Mark Wills and Blake Shelton, to mention a few. Earlier this summer, James Otto took the stage for two shows.
Admission to the concert and parking are free to the public.
Individuals are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and settle in for an exciting afternoon and evening of entertainment.
