ST. GEORGE — Southern Utah’s best country music radio station, 99.9 KONY Country, presents this year’s “4th of July Celebration” featuring country music star Scotty McCreery. Tim Gates of Due West will open the show at Dixie State University Trailblazer Stadium with his new band Gates.
This year’s Fourth of July festivities in St. George are going to be bigger and better than ever with concessions from Dixie State University, more food trucks, more portable restrooms and the biggest fireworks show in Southern Utah as well as the featured entertainment.
The stage will be located on the south end of the field this year with TV screens on both sides.
