A new must-see country concert will swing into Alberta in early August.

The Prostate Cancer Centre and the Strathmore Ag Society are unveiling the first annual Combines for Cures Country Concert, to be held in the bustling rural community of Strathmore. With plenty of star power, the event will kick off four days of rodeo fun at the Strathmore Stampede Heritage Days.

The concert will take place on the evening of Aug. 2 at the Strathmore Grandstand and outdoor stage. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the evening will begin with a showing of the week’s chuckwagon stars on parade.

The entertainment includes:

• Drew Gregory, rising star born and raised in Standard

• Codie Prevost, 2011 CCMA Rising Star Nominee & Saskatchewan Country Music Awards “Fans Choice” Entertainer of the Year

• Hey Romeo, 2011 Canadian Country Music Association Group of the Year

• Crystal Shawanda, CCMA Female Artist of the Year winner and Highest charting Native American in US History (#16 Billboard, USA)

The evening’s festivities end with fireworks presentation at 11 p.m.

Tickets are accessible online at www.combinesforcures.eventbrite.ca or by calling the Strathmore Ag Society (403) 934-5811.

Event proceeds will benefit both the Prostate Cancer Centre’s Combines for Cures™ rural lifesaving program and the Strathmore Ag Society. This event was made possible thanks to dozens of volunteers, who all support the Prostate Cancer Centre efforts aimed at making notable improvements to rural health.
