100 YEARS STRONG – Aaron Lines performs Sept. 6 to celebrate Legal's 100 year anniversary.
Aaron Lines' fans excited to see him in Legal next month are encouraged to take advantage of the early bird ticket sale before it ends Friday.
The country music star is headlining a Sept. 6th concert celebrating Legal's 100th anniversary. Tickets are $20 but go up to $25 on Friday, Aug. 15.
Lines has moved away from the spotlight in recent years to focus on raising his two daughters, 6 and 4, and his one-year-old son.
“I try to only play shows that interest me and don't take me too far from home these days,” said Lines, who lives in Calgary but grew up in Fort McMurray.
He last played in Legal two years ago as part of the Small Town, Saturday Night promotion put on by Travel Alberta. Lines was impressed by the intimacy of the venue. The closeness allowed him to interact with the crowd.
“I've never been someone who could write about what I don't know. I Haven't Even Heard You Cry was about my daughter being born, so when I perform the song live I like to take a moment and explain my process writing it.”
That song comes off of Lines' most recent release album and 2011's Canadian Country Music Album of the Year nominee, Sunday Afternoon.
Lines said he wouldn't stick to one album all night and would give fans a chance to hear all of the big hits.
“If it's anything like the last time I played in Legal, we will have a really fun time.”
The concert will be opened by local talent and a military display and topped off by a fireworks show after dark.
Tickets are on sale at the Town Office. If you have any questions please call 780-961-3773.
