GRAND BLANC—Tournament officials announced today that multi-platinum singer/songwriter and four-time American Music Awards (AMA) winner Kane Brown will headline the 5th Annual Community Concert presented by Ally. The event will take place on the driving range at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club on Aug. 27 following the second round of competition at The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren.
“The Ally Challenge will once again bring world-class entertainment to our tournament weekend, fulfilling our promise to make The Ally Challenge the premier event in the Flint/Grand Blanc area,” said Andrea Brimmer, chief marketing and public relations officer for Ally. “These concerts make both Friday and Saturday can’t miss days at the tournament and we hope they’ll get a lot of the community out to Warwick Hills to support local charities.”
Since the arrival of his self-titled, No. 1 Top Country Album in 2016, Brown has ascended from social media notability to become one of country music’s most accomplished mainstays. The four-time AMA winner is the only artist in history to notch two titles in the genre’s Top 5 most-streamed songs of all time. “Heaven” and “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina, the record-setting tracks from Brown, are also certified five-time platinum, making Brown one of only five country artists to achieve that certification twice (along with Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt and Taylor Swift).
Rolling Stone recently praised Brown as a balance of “pop-leaning radio country, Randy Travis-inspired Nineties stylings and pop-dominant R&B” as he continues to shape the next generation of country music.
Tickets for the 2022 Ally Challenge presented by McLaren are also now on sale. Special introductory pricing and best offers will be available through June 10. For a complete listing of ticket options please visit the tournament website at theallychallenge.com.
Additionally, The Ally Challenge is introducing a new concert event for the fifth edition of the popular PGA TOUR Champions stop. The added concert will be held Friday evening, following the first round of competition, at the tournament’s famous 17th hole. Further details regarding the Friday concert will be announced soon, including timing and musical act.
Access to The Ally Challenge Community Concert featuring Kane Brown, and the new Friday concert event, will require the purchase of a valid tournament ticket.
“Thanks to the unwavering support of Ally Financial, Saturday will once again be an epic day at Warwick Hills,” said Matt Stepnes, The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren Tournament Director. “Kane Brown is sure to thrill fans at the Community Concert and we’re excited to welcome back a full slate of fan destinations and activities throughout tournament week for this year’s Ally Challenge, including the new Friday concert event.”
The 2022 Ally Challenge presented by McLaren will take place the week of Aug. 22-28 at the renowned Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club. All three rounds of The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren will be broadcast on Golf Channel. –B.G.
