DECATUR, ILL. (05-29-2015) - The Farm Progress Show, along with Richland Community College and sponsored by Syngenta, featuring Golden Harvest and NK seed brands, once again hosts a concert featuring country music recording artist Craig Morgan on Wednesday, September 2.
Known as the nation’s greatest ag showcase, the 62nd annual Farm Progress Show runs September 1, 2 and 3, at its Progress City location in Decatur, Ill.
“The Farm Progress Show is delighted to offer a concert again in Decatur,” says Don Tourte, Penton Agriculture, vice president and market leader. “The concert is a great addition to the jam-packed schedule of the Farm Progress Show. It’s a perfect way to share an enjoyable evening with Farm Progress Show exhibitors, visitors and members of the Decatur and surrounding communities.”
Craig Morgan isn’t your typical country music star. His music ties to his varied life experiences as a soldier, sheriff’s deputy, EMT, adventurer, TV host, motocross racer, outdoorsman, farmer and family man. Morgan’s hit songs include “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” and “That’s What I Love About Sunday.” "I'm an American country boy who loves his country, his family and his God," says Morgan, "and all of those things collectively dictate who I am.”
"We are pleased to showcase Syngenta and, for the second year, our Golden Harvest and NK seed brands during this year’s 2015 Farm Progress Show," said Melissa Lord, customer event & tradeshow lead, Syngenta.
