Joe Nichols to headline Tyler's Cattle Barons' Gala

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) -- Country artist and Tyler resident Joe Nichols will be headline the 27th annual Tyler Cattle Barons' Gala.

This year's theme is Wranglers and Roses, and you'll want to slip on a pair of the jeans for this fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. 

Nichols is known for his hits "Brokenheartsville" and "Sunny and 75." He moved to Tyler in 2010 and says he's happy to finally be able to take part in this fundraiser. "It seems like it makes sense on all fronts. It's a great way to play at home in front of family and friends and it's a great way to give to the community I live in."

Nichols plans on performing some fan favorites along with some new material.

The gala is scheduled for Saturday, June 14 at the Rio Neches Ranch. Click here for ticket information.
