Tony Brown Homecoming Reception
This October, North Carolina is rolling out the red carpet for one of its own: legendary country music producer, Tony Brown. The Stokes County Arts Council, in tandem with the North Carolina Arts Councils 2019 state-wide campaign: Come Hear NC, are celebrating Browns accomplishments with a 4-day Homecoming Celebration from October 17 to October 20.

Born and raised in Walkertown, Brown got his start playing keys for Elvis before becoming President of MCA Records Nashville. During that time, MCA Nashville was awarded Label of the Year for 10 years straight. Brown went on to produce over 100 number one singles for the most well-known names in country music: George Strait, Reba, Trisha Yearwood, Lyle Lovett and countless others.

The first time I heard the name Tony Brown, I was twelve. My grandpa told me, Little Tony, from the Brown gospel family, was playing piano for Elvis. Then in the 90s, every country artist I listened to had Tonys name listed as the producer. I decided then that if I were ever in a position to celebrate Tonys achievements here in his home state, I would, says Eddy McGee, Executive Director of the Stokes County Arts Council. Its long overdue but well deserved!

Tony Browns Homecoming Celebration will kick-off on Thursday, October 17 with a reception at Moores Springs Manor beginning at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 general admission, $25 for Stokes Arts Members. Opening reception festivities include an appearance and interview with Tony Brown, book signing, video and images from his career, light hors d'oeuvres, and a cash bar. (Doors open at 6 p.m.)

There will be a NC Music Hall of Fame presentation and homecoming finale on Sunday, October 20th at at the Walkertown High School Auditorium with a concert by EmiSunshine, specials guests and more. All Opening Reception ticketholders/attendees receive free admission to the Sunday event.
