LOCAL COUNTRY TRIO GAL FRIDAY TO TAKE THE STAGE WITH DIAMOND RIO AT VILLAGE PARK AMPHITHEATER

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 8, 2017) - Sister country trio Gal Friday will take the stage this Saturday, August 12 beginning at 7 p.m. EST at Village Park Amphitheater. The performance is in support of fellow country actDiamond Rio, who will take the stage beginning at 8:30 p.m. EST.

"We spent countless hours learning every harmony part in every one of Diamond Rio's songs and now we get to share the stage with them in our home state of North Carolina," said Melissa York, member of Gal Friday. "It doesn't get better then that."

The trio will perform alongside the legendary band again later this month when they play at the Panama City Beach Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam. The show will coincide with the release of Gal Friday's latest single, "Scrapyard", available September 1.

Originally from N.C., members York, Lauren Wilson and Ashley Min were raised in a family rooted in music. With parents members of a successful bluegrass band, it wasn't long before each of the girls picked up instruments and began singing. At the urging of those that had seen them perform together, the sisters decided to form Gal Friday - a name that represents a girl's best friend and confidant. Since forming the trio, Gal Fridayhas been a featured opener for a myriad of notable acts, including Keith Urban, The Band Perry, Jason Aldean, Lee Brice, Kellie Pickler, Chase Rice, Wynonna Judd and Travis Tritt, among others.

Gal Friday is set to release new album "Smoke and Mirrors" in late September.

Village Park Amphitheater is located at 700 West C St., Kannapolis.
