Robert Stokley, who lost his son in combat in Iraq two years ago, will be the special guest speaker at Fayetteville Main Street’s God & Country Night this Sunday night.

This free event will begin at at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at the Villages Amphitheater. The patriotic concert will include several church choirs, local choral groups and the Fayette High School Marching Band.

“This is a community worship service where we gather together to celebrate our patriotism with song and music and is a very special memorial service,” said Mayor Ken Steele. “Those who have fought in combat and still fight for our freedom need to be recognized and we invite the community out to pay tribute to those men and women.”

God & Country Night will feature diverse musical acts including Edgefield Baptist Church, First United Methodist Church, Music Alive and Southern Nights Chorale.

“God & Country Night continues to be a unique event we showcase for our community,” said Nancy Price director of Main Street. “In its fourth year, God & Country Night is a great time to reflect upon all that has happened in our great country.”

The gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and regular seating will be available for this free concert. For further information about God & Country Night please call Main Street at 770-719-4173.
