A country music legend will perform 9 p.m. on Saturday at Whiskey River.
Johnny Lee, a Texas Country Music Hall of Fame artist with chart toppers from the late 1970s, will headline the event. Some of his top singles include “Lookin’ For Love,” “One In A Million” and “Bet Your Heart On Me.”
Sam Badar, owner of Whiskey River on Bosque Drive, said he looks forward to having Lee on the Whiskey River stage.
“Johnny Lee is a true legend,” Badar said. “He has a very strong following in Waco. We got lucky that we’re getting him this Saturday.”
Door open at 7 p.m. and tickets, priced at $20, can be purchased at Whiskey River or over the phone at 254-772-6811. Tickets will also be available at the door.
Badar also said he hopes that Whiskey River will draw Baylor students with live-music Saturdays and Thursday nights called “Baylor Nights”. On Thursdays, any Baylor student 18 and up with a state and Baylor ID can get in free.
“Kids nowadays need the music,” Badar said. “We want to be the ones that care to make their lives easier.”
