Little Big Town and Green River Ordinance to headline fall concert


    Little Big Town and Green River Ordinance will perform at TCU's annual fall concert, Chancellor Victor Boschini wrote in his "Welcome Back" email Monday.

    Fort Worth-based rock band Green River Ordinance will open for American country group Little Big Town on Sept. 5.

    Margaret Kelly, executive director of community projects at TCU, said gates will open at 6 p.m., Green River Ordinance will start at 8 p.m., and Little Big Town will play at 9 p.m.

    Chancellor Victor Boschini said the concert will take place at the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitor's Center Lawn.  

    Little Big Town is known for their chart topping songs "Tornado" and "Pontoon," according to Billboard.

    Student Body President Cody Westphal said there will be something for everyone to enjoy at the concert.

    “I think it’s going to be great,” Westphal said. “Everyone’s going to love them.”

    Westphal said the concert will not be funded by Student Government Association like the One Republic and Lady Antebellum performances in 2009 and 2010.

    Kelly said the decision to host Green River Ordinance was made by a committee of students and staff.

    Even though SGA did not pick the bands, Westphal said SGA influenced the decision to bring the opening act, Green River Ordinance, to campus.

    “I cannot say how excited I am to have them,” Westphal said. “I’ve been listening to them since high school.
