MINERAL, VA WINS FREE ALAN JACKSON CONCERT

Nashville, TN – When country music superstar Alan Jackson gave music fans the opportunity to have their city host a free concert in celebration of his new single “Long Way To Go” and forthcoming album, no one had any idea what municipality might win, and few would have predicted the prize would go to Mineral, VA. But the small town – population 490 – amassed over 31,000 votes to win the contest.

The news comes as Mineral continues to repair and rebuild in the wake of a rare East Coast earthquake on August 23rd.  Mineral was at the epicenter of the quake, which caused damage countywide.

“Alan Jackson coming to our little town for a concert has taken our minds off of ‘poor us’ and given everyone something to look forward to next year,” shares Mineral’s Mayor Pam Harlowe.

Fans had two months to vote in the nationwide campaign which was powered by Eventful, Inc. Plans for the free concert are being discussed with the town of Mineral. Details will be announced once a date is set.
