A co-founder of the Lockn' Festival is putting on a country show in Roanoke.

Dustin Lynch, whose top 10 singles include "Good Girl," "Small Town Boy" and "Seein' Red," will hit Elmwood Park on Sept. 28, in a show co-presented by Lynchburg's City Auditorium, which Lockn' co-founder Dave Frey has bought and is renovating.

The show was originally scheduled to happen on that date at Lynchburg's Riverfront Park, according to multiple concert date resources online. Frey's new venue is been promoting a lineup of shows there that includes Steve Miller Band with Marty Stuart and Ben Harper with Trombone Shorty. In a Facebook post, City Auditorium said the Lynch show's move was due to "a scheduling conflict."

Tickets are $55, $40 and $40, with $100 for VIP, not including taxes and fees, via eventbrite.com/e/dustin-lynch-tickets-63543559497?fbclid=IwAR3jLc6lx0Ll4_sNUxDL8xUkb9dSdJWyCd7g7pyHI08-c6v0xuanur3qy18.

It's been a while since Lynch played the valley. He was part of the 2013 Festival in the Park lineup, and played Sidewinders Steak House and Saloon the same year. Two years later, he played Salem's old Blue Ridge Music Festival.
