Country sensation Brushville will take the Lied Center for Performing Arts’ main stage at 9:30 p.m. Nov. 8. The performance is an annual fundraiser for the Dream 62 foundation.
Founded by UNL alumnus and Major League Baseball pitcher Joba Chamberlain, Dream 62 promotes overall wellness in the communities by supporting a variety of charitable causes, ranging from providing sporting equipment, food and clothing to underserved populations to cancer research.
Brushville has played some of the most notable events in the country music industry, including the Country Music Festival, Country Fest and Country Thunder. In 2012, the band competed in and won Battle for the Saddle in the national country music capital, Nashville, Tenn. Brushville has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in country music including Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley. Their debut single, “Bar Star,” recently became available for download on iTunes.
“Joba’s dream 62 Foundation is supporting so many worthy causes in Nebraska and all over the world, we are thrilled that the Lied Center was selected as the location for this year’s event,” said Bill Stephan, executive director of the Lied Center. “Brushville is one of the biggest up-and-coming acts in country music. Their performances are packed with energy and attendees will know that their money is going to a fantastic cause.”
