What is expected to be the largest concert to ever hit Lawrenceburg is being planned for May 12, when rising country music star J.D. Shelburne performs a free concert on the Lawrenceburg Green.

Joani Clark, Anderson County’s elected jailer, witnessed Shelburne’s huge concert earlier this summer in his hometown of Taylorsville and is trying to replicate the show that drew an estimated 4,000 fans by inviting Shelburne to perform here in an effort that will include collecting food for the Open Hands Food Pantry.
