Topeka Performing Arts Center announces country trio to perform at Topeka Remembers 9/11 event

The Topeka Performing Arts Center announced Monday morning that for its Topeka Remembers 9/11 performance, “The Front Men of Country Music” will take the stage.

 

The Front Men are three well-known country musicians, Larry Stewart of the band Restless Heart, Richie McDonald of Lonestar and Tim Rushlow of Little Texas. Between the three of them they have more than 30 No. 1 hits and have sold more than 30 million records.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. The show will be at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 13 at TPAC. Any current or past members of the military and all first responders and their families will receive discounts of a third off of ticket prices by using the special code HEROES.

Joining The Front Men is Army veteran Donnie Reis. There will also be a special Topeka Remembers 9/11 tribute to the military and first responders at the show.

Monday at a news conference Larry Garwronski, executive director for TPAC, said that the show will be a tribute to our front men: “police, fire, EMS employees, literally those who go to battle for us every day.”

Speakers at the news conference were Zach Ahrens, publisher of The Topeka Capital-Journal, Jeff Coen, deputy mayor, and Larry Riggins, market manager of Alpha Media Topeka.

“This performance is an opportunity for people to reflect back on where they were for 9/11, where we’ve been since, and who we are as a community,” Ahrens said. “And you can do this next to your neighbors, your friends, and some new friends you’ll make that evening.”

Sponsors for this show are Security Benefit, Country Legends 106.9, The Topeka Capital-Journal, TPAC and the City of Topeka.

Some of the performers top hits are “I’ll Still Be Loving You” by Restless Heart, “I’m Already There,” by Lonestar, “What Might Have Been,” by Little Texas, “The Bluest Eyes in Texas” by Restless Heart, “Amazed,” by Lonestar, and “Amy’s Back in Austin,” by Little Texas.

Here's a top hit from Restless Heart
