Last year, the Hannibal Jaycees decided to bring in a national recording act to headline National Tom Sawyer Days. Josh Thompson was booked, and his concert was successful beyond belief! Who's coming to National Tom Sawyer Days in 2015? 

Capitol Records recording star Jon Pardi - who hit the Top 10 with "Up All Night" in 2013 and also took “What I Can't Put Down” to the Top 25 - has been selected as the July 3 headliner at National Tom Sawyer Days 2015. Pardi is a California native whose debut album, Write You a Song, was released last year.

Pardi’s sound is undeniably country — paying homage to some of his musical heroes such as Dwight Yoakam, George Strait and Alan Jackson.  Discovering his ability for performance back at the tender age of three when he sang ALABAMA karaoke with his grandmother, Pardi has since shared the stage with Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Eric Church and many more of today’s hottest country artists." - Red Light Management

Opening the July 3 concert will be Natalie Stovall and The Drive. Stovall is a fiddler who made her Grand Ole Opry debut at the age of 12! She's also performed at the White House and on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Natalie Stovall and The Drive play over 200 dates each year across college campuses, clubs, festivals and military bases around the world.

Madd Hoss Jackson will also perform during National Tom Sawyer Days. They've been busy over the past year, playing at all of the major local and regional festivals, in addition to making several trips to Nashville to perform for record executives. Madd Hoss released their new CD, Better With Time, last July. Madd Hoss Jackson will headline their own night on Thursday, July 2.

Ticket prices, on sale dates, etc. for National Tom Sawyer Days 2015 will be announced soon.
