Country music rising star Drake White and his band The Big Fire will headline Gardner’s Fourth of July Celebration. White has gained recognition through his hits “It Feels Good,” “Livin’ the Dream” and “Makin’ Me Look Good Again.” He was dubbed CBS.com’s “Artist of Tomorrow.”

White’s musical style consists of country, blues, funk, and rock “n” roll. His energetic live shows gained popularity while opening for some of country music’s biggest stars, including Willie Nelson, Little Big Town, Eric Church and the Zac Brown Band. White and The Big Fire recently kicked off their own headlining Spark tour.

White will take the stage at Celebration Park, 32501 159th St., following country rock singer Rusty Laffoon, returning fan-favorite Big Time Grain Company and newcomer Tara Thompson.

In addition to the live music, attendees can enjoy other activities such as zip lining, face painting, bounce houses, portable zip lines and a variety of food vendors.

Entertainment will start at 3 p.m., and a fireworks show will begin at 10 p.m. to conclude the evening. For more details, visit www.gardnerkansas.gov/july4.
