TUSCUMBIA – Health care providers, first responders, and essential workers who have been on the frontlines during the battle with COVID-19, will have a special free musical event in their honor on Monday, July 20 from 6-8pm at Spring Park in Tuscumbia.

Life Coach Casey Eggleston and Shoals City TV are sponsoring the event as part of this year’s W.C. Handy Music Festival.  “We planned this event to say thank you and show our appreciation to the many individuals who have been such a tremendous help to people in the Shoals,” Eggleston said.  

The concert will feature music byAnna Kate Warner, Rev. Jerry Reeves & Ensemble, Colbert County Sheriff Frank Williamson, Common Ground, Brae Allen, and Deja King White.   

Eggleston and Pastor Greg Corble will also offer a prayer at 6:50pm for the protection and safety of health care providers, first responders, and all essential workers. Immediately after the special prayer, at 7pm, everyone will be asked across the Shoals to honk their car horns and give a round of applause for all health care providers, essential workers, first responders, grocery workers, delivery workers, and everyone who has diligently worked during the COVID-19 pandemic. The concert will also air live on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/lifecoachcaseyeggleston
