Athens-bred country music star (and former professional golfer) Colt Ford is staging his third annual “Colt Ford & Friends Celebrity Golf Classic” at Chåteau ´Elan Winery & Resort in Braselton, Georgia Sept. 15th, followed that evening by an all-star concert at Wild Bill’s, a popular concert hall and entertainment complex in Duluth, Georgia. Proceeds from both events benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Pro golfers set to participate include Jay McLuen, Billy Horschel, Scott Brown, Boo Weekly, Tommy Gainey and Will McGirt. In addition, supporting celebrities on tap include country stars Jamey Johnson, John Michael Montgomery, Walker Hayes, Tyler Farr and Craig Campbell, along with Ajay and Jeremy Popoff of the rock band Lit. It’s a good bet many among those musicians will be jamming with Ford at the show at Wild Bill’s, advance tickets for which are available through wildbillsatlanta.com
