The Idaho Meth Project is excited to announce that Darius Rucker is coming to Melaleuca Field in Idaho Falls to help fight meth in Idaho.
Sponsored by Mountain View Hospital, the concert is scheduled for Aug. 3. Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 19. General admission seating goes for a $34 donation. All the proceeds go to the Idaho Meth Project. Tickets can be purchased online at www.idaho.methproject.org, by phone at 208-329-METH (6384) or in person at East Idaho Credit Unions and Community Care locations in Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Rigby and Rexburg.
Two-time Grammy winner Darius Rucker, formerly of Hootie & Blowfish, launched his country music career in 2008 with his album “Learn to Live”, featuring hits such as “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” and “It Won’t Be Like This For Long.” Both hit No. 1 on the country charts. In all, Rucker has had five chart-topping singles.
Gina Heideman, spokeswoman for the Idaho Meth Project, is excited to bring Darius to Idaho Falls and is encouraging people to get out and enjoy the concert that benefits such a great cause. Last year, the Idaho Meth Project brought Josh Turner to Melaleuca Field and had over 6,500 in attendance.
Idaho Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter and Lori Otter, First Lady of Idaho, will be special guests at Rucker’s concert. First Lady Otter has dedicated much time and personal attention to the issue of teen meth use in Idaho.
The Idaho Meth Project is a large-scale prevention program aimed at reducing Meth use through public service messaging, public policy, and community outreach.
