WQYK Guitar Pull: Hunter Hayes, Lee Brice, more coming to the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg
The inaugural WQYK Guitar Pull certainly qualifies.
The country station is bringing a handful of country superstars to a relatively intimate venue, the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, for a night of stripped-down magic: "Just the stars and their guitars," the station promises.
Those stars: Hunter Hayes, Lee Brice, Lady Antebellum frontman Charles Kelley, Eric Paslay, Maddie and Tae and Jerrod Niemann. That's a huge host of hitmaking talent, most of whom are used to playing venues much larger. To hear them all stripped down, accompanied by only an acoustic guitar? Talk about a Nashville dream.
The event is Nov. 18 at the Mahaffey Theater. Ticket prices haven't been announced, but will go on sale Oct. 12. Click here for details.
The best part? WQYK-99.5 promises this is "the beginning of a new country tradition in Tampa Bay." Let's hope so.
