Canaan Smith, who has been opening for Sugarland, will perform an outdoor acoustical concert, Wednesday, Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Lyle Hare Stadium on the campus of Black Hills State University.
Smith’s performance on campus is one of several events planned to welcome BHSU students back to school. According to Dr. Jane Klug, director of the BHSU Student Union, Smith has been touring with Sugarland all summer and is on the edge of making it big in Nashville.
Smith’s lead single, “We Got Us,” a romantic ballad, is climbing the charts. It can be heard on his website at http://canaansmith.com/. Other songs on his debut album include: “I Like It That Way,” an appealing up-tempo song, “All in My Head,” a vibrant track, and “Prettiest Girl in Town.”
“Another exciting aspect of the concert is that our own BHSU student, Max Temple, will be opening for Canaan,” said Jane Klug, director of the BHSU Student Union. “Persons interested in a taste of Max’s music can listen to a quick taping Max did for us at http://youtu.be/UIUL5hFBDKc,” said Klug.
The concert is sponsored by the University Programming Team and the BHSU Orientation Committee in conjunction with BHSU’s Green & Gold Welcome Week, a program dedicated to help new students move into residence halls, become accustomed to campus life, to obtain vital information, and also to acquaint them with the Spearfish community. “We hope you will join us and all our students at this exciting event during Green & Gold Welcome Week,” said Klug.
Tickets are on sale at the BHSU Student Union Information Center. Cost is $10 in advance and $15 at the door, cash only, the night of the concert. Admission is free with a BHSU Buzz Card; all others must purchase a ticket.
