Connie Smith to Perform in Perryton

Legendary country music singer Connie Smith is coming to Perryton. She, along with her band, The Sundowners, will be performing at Ellis Theater and Performing Arts Center on May 4. The performance will begin at 7 p.m.

Smith was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2012. She was inducted as a “Veterans Era Artist,” a category for which singers qualify 45 years after they first reach national prominence.

Singer/songwriter Bill Anderson discovered Connie Smith when she was performing at a talent contest at the age of 22. Her first single, “Once a Day,” was the number-one song on the charts for eight weeks. It was the first time a debut single by a female country artist had topped the charts. Over her career, she has had 30 top 20 hits. Last year, Connie released her 53rd album. She still tours with her band and performs on the Grand Ole Opry. She is a regular on her husband’s show, “The Marty Stuart Show,” which airs on Saturday nights on RFD TV.

Tickets for Connie’s Perryton show are $25 for the general public, and only cash or checks are accepted. If you would like to donate $500 or more, you can attend a private meet and greet with Connie, receive a VIP badge and an autographed picture, and sit in a special reserved section during the concert. Proceeds from the event will go to the Arts Academy of the Plains Foundation. The foundation provides scholarships for area students who wish to study the fine arts. All donations are tax deductible.
