Tracy Byrd to perform at
Watermelon Festival

The University of Arkansas Community College at Hope Foundation is proud to announce they have partnered with the Hope-Hempstead County Chamber of Commerce to add a headlining award winner country music artist to the 33rd Annual Watermelon Festival. Tracy Byrd has been confirmed for the August 8 concert that will take place in Legion Field at Hope Fair Park on the newly constructed CMC Steel Products outdoor stage.

The Festival is Arkansas’ third largest festival drawing 60,000 people in a three day period. It was just two years ago that the 268 pound watermelon was brought into the Festival and Hope reclaimed the title “Home of the World’s Largest Watermelon.”

Byrd’s southern roots, his work on RFD TV, and his love for the outdoors makes him a natural to visit our “NATURAL” state. His country music chart topping hits include “Watermelon Crawl” “Truth about Men”, I’m From the Country”, “Keeper of the Stars”, “No Ordinary Man”, and “Before I Die” are perfect for our festival and will create enthusiasm in the community.

Gates will open Saturday, August 8th at 4:30 p.m. Tracy Byrd will take the stage at 8:30 p.m.
Opening acts include Watermelon Idol winner, Jason Helms Band, and Night Hawk Band.

We have one album under the former name NewJack and the Rippers, "Evolve". We have had the songs "Hometown Hero", The Meaning", "Drown", and "Devil in Me" played on radio stations across the country at various times when we werer playing different regions. The song "Devil in Me" has also been recorded by Wes Jeans and will be on his upcoming album "Blood,, Sweat,and Years" along with several songs that I co-wrote with him



The Jason Helms Band is an alternative country anomaly. Formerly known as New Jack And The Rippers, JHB electrified stages with a mixture of finely honed songwriting, hell-raising stage performances, and virtuosic musicianship. That's right folks, you gotta come see it to believe it!
Jason "New Jack" Helms is a singer-songwriter-guitarist with a knack for spinning tales of life and love, and razor-sharp witty lyricism that will keep the listener finding new depth and meaning to the songs with each listen.A god - fearing father and devoted husband,Jason's crafts his home and life experiences into heartfelt songs,infusing them with an honesty that is rarely seen amongst the throngs of would-be Red Dirt/Texas Country poseurs that inhabit the music scene of today.The songs produced here are infused with a realness that recalls hints of Bruce Robison,Steve Earle and Jack Ingram.But also there is a sense of adventure musically,much like Bryan Adams and Counting Crows.You need not walk a mile in his shoes:listen long enough and you will feel each callous and blister,finding yourself wincing at each painful step and rejoicing in every triumph.Jason is backed up by a most-impressive group of musicians as well.On Drums - Jack Miller and
On Lead Rod Kennedy and
On Keys - Jimmy Joe Akin.
Last but not least, on bass guitar ,is former grooveslaves and Matt Whatley Project bassist Joe Dunn.Joe provides the backbone groove that lays underneath the music. Joe is a phenomenal bass player with a keen sence of groove and creativity that bonds seamlessly with jack millers drumming to create a slamming rhythmn section.

Jason has shared stages with many artists over the years as solo act and as a former member of Voodoo Cowboy,such as Tracy Byrd , Cross Canadian Ragweed,Dwight Yoakum, Mindy McCready, Delbert McClinton,Todd Snider,Jack Ingram,Pat Green,Darryl Singletary,Billy Joe Shaver,John Conley and Davis Allen Cloe.His Bandmates have also shined alongside a host of legendary artist from Willie Nelson to Charlie Daniels. Together with all of the experience,these guys definitely set off the fireworks!!!
