Press Release Date:
May 25, 2011
Grammy-winning country group Diamond Rio will headline a free Fourth of July show in the new Mystic Amphitheater at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel®. Mystic Lake’s second annual free Fourth of July outdoor concert will be followed by a fireworks display.
“We had high hopes for last year’s event and it was even more successful than we could’ve imagined,” Mystic Lake Vice President of Marketing Bryan Prettyman said. “We’re thrilled to welcome Diamond Rio to the Mystic Amphitheater this year and anticipate an even more exciting Fourth of July celebration.”
Diamond Rio was the first country music group in history to reach the top spot of Billboard’s country chart with a debut single and went on to release three platinum-selling records. Diamond Rio was twice named the Top Vocal Group by the Academy of Country Music and four times was named Vocal Group of the Year from the Country Music Association. The group won the 2010 Country Album of the Year for The Reason at the 41st annual Dove Awards, and received its first Grammy Award after 13 nominations in 2011 for Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album.
