NEWPORT-Plans are underway for the third annual free --
that's right, free -- "Rock the Block" concert, to be held at Cocke
County High School's football stadium, on Saturday, July 20.
The concert will feature a 2013 Grammy nominee, the Rhett
Walker Band. They were nominated for best single this year with their song,
"When Mercy Found me".
Luke Bell, again the organizer of this year's "Rock
the Block" concert, said he is hoping for, and planning for, 3,500 people
to attend the concert, which will again also include free food.
Bell said that he immediately began planning this
summer's concert the first day after last year's summer concert with
MIKESCHAIR. He estimated 2,500 attended the 2012 concert, and that 1,500
attended the first concert in 2011.
