“The mission of BBQ and Brews is to “eat barbecue, drink beer and do good.”
A portion of the proceeds will go towards ForCanton’s warming shelter initiative. ForCanton is a nonprofit organization affiliated with Action Church tasked with fighting hunger, homelessness and poverty in the city.
Headlining the event will be country artist Jacob Bryant. Bryant has received the North American County Music Association’s International Male Vocalist of the Year award, the Georgia Country and Gospel Music Association’s Best Male Vocalist, Entertainer of the Year awards and Songwriter of the Year awards. His newest EP, “Up In Smoke,” released in September and reached the top ten in sales on iTunes.
“I could barely sleep the night before ‘Up In Smoke’ was released and then I woke up to it debuting in the top ten on iTunes. I have the most incredible fans who get behind anything and everything that I do whether it be a cover video, a new tune or an album. I’m beyond excited to have a full-production video to bring to them for “A Women’s Touch.” It’s something they’ve been asking for. We are set to film by the end of this month,’” Bryant said.
“Jacob Bryant is a complete gem of country music and absolutely should be recognized for the incredible music he makes. Song after song – this guy puts out a winning sound every time with real authenticity and genuine heart.”
