Hootie, Zac Brown Band will play at Rock Fore Dough event

This year’s Drive For Show, Rock Fore Dough! concert will be a little bit country while remaining a little bit rock ’n’ roll.

South Carolina act Hootie and the Blowfish will once again headline the benefit concert, with rising country/rock act the Zac Brown Band appearing in support. Information on other acts will be released at a later date.

The concert, now in its fifth year, takes place Tuesday, April 7, at First Tee of Augusta. Hootie and the Blowfish, which has headlined the event three of the previous four years, is best known for the hits Hold My Hand and Let Her Cry. Lead singer Darius Rucker has enjoyed solo success with his 2008 country album Learn to Live.

The Zac Brown Band toured extensively before finding chart success with the 2008 single Chicken Fried. The band has appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson and will play the Bonnaroo Music Festival in June.

Tickets for the Rock Fore! Dough concert are $25 in advance and $35 at the gate. Tickets go on sale Saturday, Feb. 14 and will be available at ticketalternative.com and area Kroger stores. Proceeds from the event support the First Tee of Augusta.
