Lagoon concert series at CSU : The Country Music Project plays July 17

The Country Music Project

The Country Music Project will perform at Colorado State University’s Lagoon Concert Series Wednesday, July 17.

The live music begins at 6 p.m. near the Lagoon with a Little Kids Rock performance by Frontier Academy.

Michael Rice was only in third grade when he became intrigued with music. Over 30 years later, he was ready to get back into music and was looking for a female vocal partner. This led to the formation of The Country Music Project, which plays everything from traditional country covers to today’s Top 40 songs. Its vast repertoire has something for every country fan.

With its mix of male and female four-part vocals — and instrumentation that includes acoustic, electric and pedal steel guitars, mandolin, keyboards, bass and drums — TCMP keeps the old sound of country music alive, but has the power to punch out the popular sounds of today’s new artists.

KRFC broadcasts

The Lagoon Summer Concert Series is now being enjoyed by radio listeners across northern Colorado and around the world. KRFC 88.9 FM Radio Fort Collins is broadcasting each of the seven concerts the following week as part of its “Around Town” series, which airs Wednesdays at 7 p.m. The partnership is a reflection of the mission the two organizations share – enhancing community relationships and pride through the love of arts and entertainment.

“The Lagoon Summer Concert Series is a great example of the spirit and culture in our area,” said KRFC 88.9 FM Radio Fort Collins Executive Director Jen Parker. “We are proud to support this popular summer tradition and share it with a much bigger audience.”
