Madisonville, Ky. (WEHT) — The City of Madisonville has announced the acts for the Friday Night Live Summer Concert Series.

The entertainment is divided into two different areas providing attendees with an option of two different types of live music.
“We are excited for the new direction that we are taking Friday Night Live,“ said Mayor Kevin Cotton. “We’ve looked to bring in some local favorites and combine that with regional sensations to allow for a broad range of music.“
