Brown County Music Center officials say country singer Vince Gill will perform Aug. 24 in the first show at the new 2,000-seat indoor venue in Nashville.
Executive Director Dana Beth Evans says the $12.5 million concert hall will have beer and family gardens and state-of-the-art sound and lighting systems.
Brown County attracts more than 3 million visitors each year to the rural, forest-filled county.
But the county has lacked a big concert venue since the Little Nashville Opry venue burned to the ground on September 19, 2009. Investigators claim 77-year-old James Bowyer of Morgantown set the fire in an attempt to claim $3 million in insurance money, but a jury found Bowyer not guilty of the crime.
