Free Daughtry!!!

Chris Daughtry is coming "Home" for a free concert.

Personally, I love Chris and think it will be a GREAT show. His Debut CD is fantastic. You can chek out the "Plugged In" review of his CD by following this link:

Now, A small disclaimer...this is NOT a WBFJ sponsored concert, alcohol will be sold at this event and you will have to decide if this concert is right for you/your family.
