Red Dirt Revival (RDR) will perform at the final Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert for the 2021 season in Downtown Statesville on Friday, October 8.

A country band based in Alamance County, RDR is highly regarded in the local music scene and plays everything from the classic days of the outlaws to the crooners of the 1990s. They also perform some of today’s hits as well as original songs.

RDR has headlined multiple festivals across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. They have also shared the stage with many national acts, including country music icons Joe Diffie, David Allan Coe, Confederate Railroad, Tracy Lawrence and Jamey Johnson along with up-and-coming artists like Parmalee and Chris Janson.

The 2021 Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series offers free entertainment to Statesville’s residents, neighbors and visitors in Downtown Statesville from June through October.
