Saturday, July 27 at Front Street Grill Jesse Keith Whitley

With music in his blood, the son of country music legends Lorrie Morgan and the late Keith Whitley, along with his grandfather George Morgan, it is no surprise that Jesse Keith Whitley is destined for stardom. At the ripe age of 32, he has already accomplished most of what some artists only dream of. He has performed at the Country Music Festival "Jamboree in the Hills", to a crowd of 82,000 plus. Jesse has also shared the stage and opened for some of his biggest inspirations and friends: Andy Griggs, Mark Chestnut, Sammy Kershaw, John Michael-Montgomery, Lorrie Morgan, Eric Lee Beddingfield, Daryle Singletary, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, Eli Young Band, Garth Brooks, Tracy Lawrence and many more. Surrounded by country music legends, growing up backstage of the Grand Old Opry and on tours with his mother, Jesse was fortunate to learn the true definition of being an "entertainer". He is a crowd-pleaser and has everyone on their feet the moment he hits the stage. Satisfying a very diverse crowd with old country classics, modern country, southern rock, and his own originals, Jesse sets a new standard for today's country music. His voice brings you to the presence of a modern-day Keith Whitley. Jesse Keith
