Brice Long

Hopkinsville native Brice Long will be coming back to town Saturday to perform a fundraising concert beginning a 7 p.m. at the James E. Bruce Convention Center.

Hopkinsville native Brice Long is coming back to town for his annual Back to Back Foundation concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at the James E. Bruce Convention Center.

Tickets are $10 and proceeds will help families in Christian and Trigg counties during Christmas.

The singer and songwriter is bringing friends as usual. Long explained he tries to bring new performers to keep it fresh. This year, he will be accompanied by Clint Daniels, Marla Cannon-Goodman and Lee Thomas Miller.

After they play some of their songs, Long will take the stage to perform his new music. Long explained he started the benefit to give back. “It’s what makes Christmas for me,” he said.

The first year, Long gave his own money to help five families. After that, he hosted a concert to receive more help for the families, which is now estimated to be over 200 families since 2005.

The goal is to help about 32 to 35 families this year, but the numbers will vary, Foundation Chairman Brent Gilkey explained. The size of the family and their needs will determine how many they can help. For example, if a family needs a bed, the foundation will get them a bed.

Tickets can be purchased on the website,, or at the Wood Shed, the convention center, Herb Hayes Furniture, H and R Agri-Power, Cayce’s Pharmacy, Staton’s Art and Framing, Creations by Tammy, Hancock’s Neighborhood Market, WKDZ, Glory Guns and Pawn and Calhoun’s Pool, Hearth and Patio.
