The Anoka Lions Club will host the 31st annual Country Music Show at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., Saturday, March 9, at Anoka High School.

“This is a great show at a very reasonable price, and it’s great fun for the whole family,” Anoka County Lions Chair Bill Dubats said.

This year’s production will feature the stars of the popular Branson, Missouri, show “Branson on the Road.”

The group brings classic country, bluegrass, gospel, rockabilly and comedy to the stage and features colorful costumes and instruments such as mandolin, banjo and guitar.

Debbie Horton, the only woman to play lead guitar for Johnny Cash, headlines the group. She is also a songwriter and emcee for music concerts with Kenny Rogers, Hank Williams Jr., the Oak Ridge Boys and more.

Country and rockabilly singing couple Sherwin and Pam Linton will open the show. Sherwin, an award-winning country singer, has been in the music business for over 55 years. He is best-known for his 1966 song “Cotton King,” which catapulted him to the top of the country music charts.

“You won’t want to miss this entertaining show,” Dubats said.

Tickets are $25 for reserved seats and $20 for general admission. All proceeds go to support the work of the Anoka Lions Club.

“Every dime of our profits will do back to those in need in the community,” Dubats said.

The Anoka Lions Club assists a number of local organizations including Minnesota Lions Hearing Foundation, Youth First Community of Promise, Anoka Food Shelf, Lions Clubs International Foundation, Anoka Anti-Crime Commission, Anoka Halloween Committee and more.

For tickets contact Bill and Jan Dubats at 763-757-4143 or Joe and Lynn Zimmerman at 763-421-4361. Anoka High School is at 3939 N. Seventh Ave., Anoka.
