BILOXI, Miss. – Beau Rivage is pleased to host the Randy Houser Homecoming Golf & Concert benefitting the Nikki Mitchell Foundation, August 14-15. The two-day fundraising event is being hosted by three-time CMA-nominated country music artist Randy Houser in his home state of Mississippi at MGM Resort International’s iconic waterfront destination resort in Biloxi.
“I’m honored to host this event benefitting The Nikki Mitchell Foundation,” shares Houser. “I always look forward to an opportunity to give back, and to be able to support this foundation along with so many of my friends means a lot to me.”
The Nikki Mitchell Foundation’s mission is to provide comfort and relief to those affected by pancreatic cancer while raising awareness and searching for a cure.
“Randy is an integral part of the Nikki Mitchell Foundation’s Artist Board,” shares NMF Director of Development Christa Bowles. “Although he has performed at more NMF shows than we can count, this will be his first time hosting an event for the foundation. We could not be more grateful to have such a generous, caring, and talented board member as our Homecoming host.”
Randy Houser will host an all-star concert on August 15 in the Beau Rivage Theatre with special guests Jamey Johnson, Lee Brice, Rob Hatch, Dallas Davidson, Jerrod Niemann, and Brad Arnold of Three Doors Down.
Randy Houser racked up three consecutive No. 1 hits from his album How Country Feels, topping the charts with the title track, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss,” and earning critical acclaim for his powerful delivery of the Top 5 smash and CMA Song of the Year-nominated “Like A Cowboy.” Houser added a fourth # 1 to his catalogue with “We Went” from his 2016 album Fired Up. Following 2019’s critically acclaimed Magnolia, Houser’s sixth studio album Note To Self is set for release on November 11, while the title track climbs the charts at Country radio.
Jamey Johnson is a founding artist of the Nikki Mitchell Foundation. He has hosted Homecoming in his hometown of Montgomery, Alabama for 8 years, raising nearly $2,000,000. Johnson is best known for his single, “The Dollar,” which peaked at #14 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. In addition to writing his own songs, Johnson has co-written three singles for Trace Adkins, and one for George Strait.
Recording artist Lee Brice has racked up over three billion on-demand streams with his hit songs, “Memory I Don’t Mess With,” “Drinking Class,” “I Drive Your Truck” and “Rumor.” Brice is a GRAMMY nominee, a CMA and ACM award winner and has taken nine radio singles to the #1 spot.
Singer-songwriter Jerrod Niemann burst onto the music scene in 2010 with his #1 debut, “Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury.” His songs have been recorded by Lee Brice, Blake Shelton, Colbie Caillat and numerous other artists.
Brad Arnold is the lead singer and drummer of rock band 3 Doors Down. A native of Escatawapa, Mississippi, Arnold wrote the band’s hit song, “Kryptonite” in high school. “Kryptonite” went on to place in the top three of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, skyrocketing the group to international fame.
Rob Hatch moved to Nashville in 2001 to follow his dream of becoming a professional songwriter. The Florida native achieved success in 2008 with his first #1 hit song, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” by Justin Moore. In 2014, Hatch was named SESAC Songwriter of the Year following success of his two #1 songs, “Goodnight Kiss” by Randy Houser and “I Don’t Dance” by Lee Brice.
Dallas Davidson arrived in Nashville in 2004 and since then has amassed 26 #1 songs with more than 500 of his songs recorded by artists from various genres, including Luke Bryan, Lady Gaga, FloRida, T-Pain and Trace Adkins. He has earned the coveted Songwriter of the Year award six times.
