SEBRING — Rick Arnold, whose high energy shows feature country and rock, makes a welcome return to Highlands Hammock State Park. He is set to play the Nov. 18 Music in the Park concert from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. His most recent albums include ‘Raised on Country, Born to Rock’ and ‘Rock the Night Away.’ In addition to original songs, this country rocker will also include some great old rock-n-roll classics that move fans and his regular followers to join together with him and clap in unison.
Prior to moving to Florida, this dynamic musician and songwriter made his home in Nashville for 25 years where he worked with Hank Williams, Jr., and is most famously known for penning ‘Hog Wild,’ the title cut of one of Hank’s albums and ‘The Farm Song.’ As a recording artist in Nashville, he charted three songs in the Top 100. A native of eastern Kentucky, Arnold was exposed to many different kinds of music when making the rounds with his father who supplied and serviced juke boxes and pin ball machines in honkytonks throughout the region. Arnold is a multi-talented entertainer who plays guitar, harmonica and sax. Concert goers may sit back and relax or get up and dance while enjoying a rollicking good night of great music!
