Lonestar Headlines Huntingdon’s CloverJam 2010

Montgomery, Ala.—Huntingdon College will host a series of talented bands, including the national country-western/crossover band Lonestar, for CloverJam 2010, Saturday, April 10, 6:00 p.m.–midnight on the Green on the College campus; a benefit concert for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Part of the College’s annual Founders Day Spring Celebration weekend, CloverJam will begin with student bands at 6:00 p.m., followed by the Jennifer Moody Band at 8:00 p.m. Lonestar will perform from 10:30 p.m. to midnight. Tickets are $20 for the general public in advance or at the door and may be purchased through http://cloverjam.eventbrite.com/ or through a link on the Huntingdon Web site. Advance tickets are recommended due to space limitations. Special rates are available for full-time Huntingdon students, faculty, and staff, and for alumni attending Spring Celebration weekend; contact alumni@huntingdon.edu.

Lonestar made its debut on the Billboard country music charts in 1995 and has amassed 27 singles on the country charts, with 9 of those singles reaching number one. In 1999, Lonestar’s single, “Amazed,” became a crossover hit that reached number one on both the country charts and the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the first single to do so since Kenny Rogers’ and Dolly Parton’s “Islands in the Stream” in 1983. The group has also recorded eight studio albums and a greatest hits compilation. Three of their albums have been certified gold, while three more have been certified platinum or higher. Lonestar’s latest album, “Party Heard Around the World,” was released in January of this year.

The evening of April 10 will be the culmination of Spring Celebration at the College. As the bands play, vendors such as ARAMARK food services, Coca-Cola, Chick-Fil-A, Boomer T’s Barbecue, and Little Caesar’s pizza will sell food and drinks on the Green. Guests are welcome to bring blankets and folding chairs. No coolers or outside beverages or food will be allowed on campus. Huntingdon College is an alcohol-free campus and alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited. In the interest of public safety, no pets will be allowed on campus during this event. In the case of inclement weather, bring ponchos and rain gear, as this is a “rain or shine” event. Net proceeds will benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association in the name of Hayden’s Heroes, a group formed around 3-year-old Hayden Fielder, whose mother, aunt, grandfather, grandmother, and uncle are affiliated with the College as either students, alumni, or staff members. Hayden was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy last summer. This event is co-sponsored by the Huntingdon College Student Government Association, Huntingdon Greek Life, BankTrust, Regions Bank, and Hyundai.

Huntingdon College, grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition of the United Methodist Church, is committed to nurturing growth in faith, wisdom, and service, and to graduating individuals prepared to succeed in a rapidly changing world. A coeducational liberal arts college, the College motto is, “Enter to grow in wisdom; go forth to apply wisdom in service.” During Founders Day Spring Celebration weekend, the College will celebrate its 156th birthday and 101st year in Montgomery.
