CROSSVILLE — Continuing on the success of the partnership with Cumberland Medical Center, DCI is pleased to announce its final concert for 2012. Monday, Oct. 22, "An Evening with Felicia Keyes and Luther Myers" will provide our community with two incredibly talented musicians. When not working at Cumberland Medical Center, both Felicia and Luther fill their lives and their families with music.  

Felicia Keyes

Since the age of 3, Felicia Keyes has known her true passion to be singing. She was first noticed at a Billy Ray Cyrus concert, where she was pulled from the crowd to sing on stage with Billy Ray himself. She went on to sing at Dollywood and has associated with many big names since then, including Garth Brooks, Pam Tillis, Sawyer Brown, and local favorite Johnny Moore.

Luther Myers

Luther has played guitar since the age of 13. He has performed on stage with the likes of Grand Ole Opry Star and 1967 CMA Male Vocalist of the Year Jack Greene, Don Helms, Texas Troubadour Lynn Owsley, and Becky Hobbs. Luther says, "One of my fondest musical memories is playing on stage with Hank Williams' steel guitarist Don Helms in what became his last public performance."

Performing at The Palace Theatre on Monday, Oct. 22, starting at 7 p.m., they will perform a combination of personal and popular favorites. Tickets are $10 each, with all proceeds benefiting the downtown Crossville revitalization effort. 

Downtown Crossville, Inc. is focused on creating an economic climate in the downtown area to increase shopping and dining opportunities. The infrastructure project will update the water pipes, storm drainage, sidewalks, lighting, and traffic lighting to encourage retail and restaurant development.  Please make sure to visit our local merchants when doing your holiday shopping.

Tickets are $10 and available at The Palace Theatre. For more information or questions, please contact DCI at 787-1324.
