Country rock singer-songwriter Brantley Gilbert will perform in concert at the Mississippi Horse Park Thursday [Oct. 20].

Tickets are available for $19 each at or in Suite 300 at MSU’s Colvard Student Union.

“I’m thrilled we have a rising star who’s on the country national stage coming to Starkville,” said Brice Lambert, student director of Music Maker Productions and a senior biological sciences major. “It’s good to have someone who has shown great talent for writing, as well as performing live.”

When Gilbert’s album “Halfway to Heaven” was released in 2010, it achieved the No. 2 spot on the U.S. country chart and the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart.
