KINGSVILLE, TEXAS — Naval Air Station Kingsville has added another feature to the 2010 “Wings Over South Texas” Air Show. Grammy-nominated Emerson Drive will headline a free concert Saturday evening, March 27, beginning at 5:30 p.m., on the air station’s flight line.
Emerson Drive has been a part of the country music scene since 2001. The band’s first two singles, “I Should Be Sleeping” and “Fall Into Me,” peaked in the Top 5 on the Billboard charts and quickly became fan favorites. Their careerchanging song, “Moments,” gave the band their first number one single in the U.S.
Emerson Drive has been honored with awards or nominations from the Academy of Country Music, Country Music Association, Canadian Country Music Association, CMT, Dove Awards, Grammy Awards, Inspirational Country Music Association, Juno Awards, Music Row Magazine and Campus Activities Magazine.
They have toured with Toby Keith, Shania Twain and Big & Rich among other artists.
The Navy’s Blue Angels will headline the 2010 Wings Over South Texas Air Show, which will include such aeronautical performers as the 2008 World Aerobatic Champion and AirShowBuzz 2008 “Person of the Year” Rob Holland, the Commemorative Air Force’s Tora!, Tora!, Tora!, and Corpus Christi native Paul Fiala.
“More acts will continue to be added to the line-up as the show nears,” said Capt. Phil Waddingham, NAS Kingsville commanding officer. “But we’re thrilled to add a free concert to the line-up of events that we will offer the community with this year’s air show. We are working to make this the ‘best ever’ air show in South Texas.”
