Jesse Keith Whitely joins concert headliners Montgomery Gentry, Kansas and Darryl Worley as part of the 10th anniversary of Worley’s Tennessee River Run. The popular annual outdoor festival is slated for Sept. 15-17 in Savannah, TN.
A Saturday night concert at Pickwick Landing State Park on Sept. 17 will feature Jesse Keith Whitley, son of Lorrie Morgan and the late Keith Whitley, opening for Montgomery Gentry and Darryl Worley. The biggest fireworks show in TRR history will cap off the concert.
Whitley recently released his debut single, the title cut from his Kentucky Thunder EP. Jesse has been on a nationwide radio tour and performing shows, including several dates with Lorrie Morgan. Earlier this year, he performed at the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and accepted the induction honor on behalf of his late father.
The Tennessee River Run includes not only rock and country concerts but an opening gala, songwriters’ event, bass tournament, golf tournament, battle of the bands, craft booths and food vendors. The annual event benefits the Darryl Worley Foundation, a 501c3 public benefit corporation that serves special needs for people in West Tennessee, Northwestern Alabama and Northeastern Mississippi. It also supports St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center.
