GREENSBORO, N.C. – As part of its effort to elevate up-and-coming music stars while developing the music scene in central North Carolina, the Wyndham Championship is scheduling eight different bands to perform at Margaritaville at the Wyndham this week, the tournament announced today. The 80th anniversary Wyndham Championship, which will determine the $10 Million Wyndham Rewards Top 10 winners, is underway at Sedgefield Country Club.
Headlined by the Davin McCoy Band which will play every day through Sunday, these groups will perform multiple shows each day of tournament week through Sunday. The Davin McCoy Band could be considered the Margaritaville at the Wyndham “House Band” having also played the Wyndham Championship last year. The Davin McCoy Band is a regular act at the LandShark Bar & Grill in Lake Lanier, Ga. McCoy is considered a “gifted singer-songwriter making a name for himself with insightful songwriting and impassioned vocals.”
East Carolina University alumna Kasey Tyndall was in nursing school when she won a radio station contest to sing “We Were Us” with Keith Urban. Soon after, she left her dreams of becoming a nurse behind and moved to Nashville. About Tyndall and her second release, “Bar That’s Open,” Rolling Stone wrote, “A hard rock-country bada** with the best song about a watering hole since Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar.” Tyndall will play two sets on both Thursday and Friday afternoons.
“Music has an amazing ability to bring us all together, no matter what our unique backgrounds may be,” the Rocky Mount, N.C. native said. “I particularly love that about country music – it’s a genre big enough for all of us. And as a female, I can only aspire to be me, to be true to myself and the style of music I’m making, all while trying to make the world a better place through songs.”
Gyth Rigdon, 25, finished in second place in The Voice Season 16 on NBC. The Singer, La., native recently performed at The Carolina Country Music Festival and played with Hootie and the Blowfish in Texas. His only appearance will be Wednesday, July 31 at 2 p.m.
Love and Theft, featuring Charlotte’s Eric Gunderson and Stephen Barker Liles, will perform on Wednesday, July 31 and Thursday, Aug. 1. The single, Angel Eyes, became their first No. 1 single in 2011 and is now just one of their many successful songs.
Adam Craig will perform Friday, Aug. 2 at 3:30 p.m. He was named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists you need to know” in the summer of 2016. He previously opened for Lady Antebellum.
Kevin Mac is known as an incredible songwriter who has opened for REO Speedwagon, Martina McBride, Phil Vasser, Darryl Worley and Kenny Chesney. Mac will play at Margaritaville at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3 and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 4.
Rebel Union will play Margaritaville at the Wyndham at 3:45 p.m. Saturday and 12:30 and 3:30 on Sunday, Aug. 4. This acoustic quartet from Nashville plays beautiful harmonies in an energetic show.
