GRAND BLANC — Tournament officials announced this week that two Michigan based bands, 3rd Degree Burns and Tripp ‘N’ Dixie, will open the 2019 Ally Challenge community concert for multi-platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley.

The second Ally Challenge concert is Sept. 14 on the driving range at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club following the second round of competition at The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren.

Concert gates open at 4 p.m. with college football showing on the big screen. 3rd Degree Burns will take the stage at 5:30 p.m. and Tripp ‘N’ Dixie at 6:30 p.m. Headliner Dierks Bentley is scheduled to perform beginning at 8:30 p.m.
