Laci Kaye Booth Opens for Diamond Rio

The Young County Concert will feature the talented Laci Kaye Booth presented by Monroe Dodge Chrysler Jeep Superstore.

Originally from Texas, Booth made heads turn with her unique, smokey, textured vocals as she made her way into the Top 5 on season 2 of American Idol on ABC. Following the show, singer/songwriter hit the Nashville ground running, releasing her debut collection of music, a dreamy, ethereal fusion of country-style music, and creating a name for herself as a gifted artist and songwriter. Booth has since shared
the stage with artists like Riley Green, Jordan Davis, and Midland. Known for her blend of raw and velvety vocals alongside her personal, heartfelt lyrics that fuse themes of love and longing alongside echoes of country influences, Booth has already made an impressive stamp on the country music scene.

The Country Concerts will be held Saturday, Dec. 3 starting at 3:45 pm in the heated outdoor Christmas in Ida Theater Center, presented by the Patriot Group, and located in the Ida Township Fire Department parking lot.

In keeping with tradition, all concerts are free. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Patrons wishing to bring chairs may do so. The Saturday concerts are produced by Mike Hennig of TRS Productions of Toledo.
