SCOTTSBLUFF — A guitar autographed by country artist Tracy Byrd will be auctioned off at his concert at the historic Midwest Theater, June 11.

Midwest Theater Executive Director Billy Estes said the proceeds from the auction will be used to support arts education programming for students. Helberg & Nuss is graciously donating their auctioneering services.

“We are super excited about this,” Estes said. “This is a great opportunity for our community to own a little piece of history from the Midwest Theater and Tracy Byrd, and it goes to a great cause: the youth of our community.”

With fewer than 200 tickets remaining for the June 11 concert, Estes emphasized that anyone wanting to attend the concert should purchase their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. The VIP Meet & greet event has already sold out.

Tracy Byrd is marking 25 years since his first big hit and to celebrate the special occasion, he’s returning to the road for a tour that finds him performing all over the United States for the first time in several years. His tour will stop in Scottsbluff on Tues., June 11 for a concert at the historic Midwest Theater in downtown Scottsbluff.

The country hitmaker first reached No. 1 in 1993 with “Holdin’ Heaven,” and he followed up with a string of hits that included “Watermelon Crawl,” “Big Love,” “I’m From the Country,” “Ten Rounds With Jose Cuervo,” “Drinkin’ Bone,” and “The Keeper of the Stars,” which won ACM Song of the Year honors in 1996. He’s released 34 singles and ten studio albums, four of which have been certified gold, one platinum and one double platinum by the RIAA.
