About Good For Country

Over the past three years, UBank has hosted a family-friendly music event at their Lufkin location on South First Street. Thousands of fans have brought their lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy performances by entertainers such as Drake White, Kameron Marlowe, Dave Finley, Chris Colston, and Chad Cooke Band.

The Good for Country Concert Series was born out of a post-covid need for in-person entertainment and hunger relief in the East Texas area. Through this platform, UBank has been able to donate roughly $30,000 to the East Texas Food Bank.

Going Big in 2023

UBank's 4th annual Good For Country Concert is swinging for the bleachers in 2023. The event will be moved from the bank's location to the George H. Henderson, Jr. Expo Center on the North Loop in Lufkin.

Why the move? Well, there just wouldn't be enough room in the bank's parking lot to accommodate the crowd that will show up for one of the hottest entertainers in country music. SCOTTY MCCREERY will be headlining this year's Good For Country Concert on Saturday, March 4.

Scotty McCreery

Scotty McCreery’s current album Same Truck contains his No. 1 RIAA Gold-certified singles “You Time” and “Damn Strait,” and his current single “It Matters to Her.” "Damn Strait" was one of the most played and downloaded songs of the past year.

He achieved new heights by earning three back-to-back No. 1 hits from his last album Seasons Change, the RIAA Gold-certified project which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album chart: the RIAA Double Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes,” the RIAA Platinum-certified “This Is It,” which stayed at the top of the charts for two weeks, and RIAA Gold-certified “In Between.” 

McCreery rose to worldwide stardom after winning American Idol in 2012. He and his wife, Gabi, recently welcomed their first baby, Avery. This Lufkin concert will be a bit of a homecoming for a member of his band. Nacogdoches native, Spence Peppard, is the lead guitarist in Scotty McCreery's band.

The Tickets Are Only How Much!!??

Tickets for the 4th Annual Good For Country Concert go on sale on Friday, January 6 at 11 am. TICKETS ARE ONLY $10!!

UBank wants to fill the Expo Center to capacity because every ticket sold means more money for the East Texas Food Bank.  Every dollar of every ticket sold goes straight to the food bank and their efforts to feed the hungry in East Texas.

You can purchase your general admission tickets at this link. Ticket sales will only be available to Scotty McCreery Fan Club members until tickets go on sale to the public.

Travis Denning

Your $10 ticket gets you in to see Scotty McCreery, but he's not the only performer taking the stage.  Travis Denning will be in concert as well.

 A native of Warner Robins, Georgia, singer/songwriter and Mercury Nashville recording artist Travis Denning celebrated his first number and gold-certified single in 2020 with "After A Few".

He recently released his “clever kiss-off” (Billboard) and “wickedly fun good-riddance anthem” (PEOPLE) “ABBY”, which has already amassed over 17 million streams and the track reached the number one spot on Sirius XM’s Highway Hot 30.

Jackson Pigg

Also taking the stage at the Good For Country Concert will be local guest Jackson Pigg. Born and raised in Lufkin, Texas, Jackson Pigg is an up-and-coming country music singer/songwriter who is chasing his dreams. At the age of 16, he began playing shows around the East Texas area and has even bigger plans to share his talents across the country. 

Don't miss out on this great night of music and family fun for a very affordable price.  Remember, 100% of the event proceeds go to the East Texas Food Bank.

Doors will open at 6:45 and the show starts at 7:30.

If you can't make it to the show but still want to support the ETFB, you can make a direct donation here.
