Mercer Athletics has unveiled an exciting lineup of accomplished artists that fans are sure to love as part of the 2021 Ford Concert Series. The concert series, which is now in its third season, will feature an array of live music performances at Toby Town before each of Mercer’s five home football games this fall.

“We’re excited to continue to provide Middle Georgia with outstanding entertainment featuring live music and multiple national recording artists along with an incredible college football experience this fall,” said Associate AD for External Operations Daniel Tate. “Music is part of the fabric that makes Macon special, and it is our goal to provide the community with the chance to experience one of the pillars of our wonderful city.”

The Ford Concert Series will include headlining performances by Dylan Marlow and Noah Hicks (Sept. 2), Craig Campbell (Oct. 2), Jon Langston (Oct. 16) and Chris Lane (Oct. 23). A final artist for the Nov. 13 home finale will be announced at a later date.

Additional performers include Kaitlyn Baker and ERNEST on Oct. 2, Chris Bandi and Priscilla Block on Oct. 16, Joe Lasher and Kameron Marlowe on Oct. 23 and JB Strauss on Nov. 13.

The concert series is presented by Ford, and Mercer football faithful will have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to enjoy live music from a variety of nationally known recording artists as well as local talent at Toby Town, the designated tailgating area on Black Field, which is located adjacent to beautiful Five Star Stadium, home of the Bears. Local artists will be announced prior to each home contest.
