In addition to their four CMA awards, the band recently garnered “Country Album of the Year” at the 41st Annual Dove Awards.

“Last year was another stadium-packed crowd, and this year we are expecting a much larger attendance for this Independence Day celebration,” said Allen Tatman, Warner Robins Civitan Club.

The evening of music and fun will culminate with a large fireworks display.

“Thanks to the generosity of local businesses and the talent of the Band of the U.S. Air Force Reserve, we have an incredible celebration planned,” said Mr. Tatman. The middle Georgia community will have front-row seats to a fireworks display that gets bigger and better every year.”

Attendees are welcome to bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating on the infield. Gates open at 6 p.m. Food and beverages will be available at concession stands. Bags and containers are subject to search. No alcoholic beverages or glass containers allowed at this family event. No pets allowed.
