There will be a definite Southern Miss feel when the school opens its Spirit Park Live concert series on the Golden Eagle campus, Saturday, Sept. 11, prior to its 6 p.m. football contest against Grambling State.
Singer-songwriter, and former Golden Eagle baseball player, Adam Doleac, helps break in the new Southern Station stage prior to the school’s first home game. The concert series continues prior to each home game during the season with more acts set to be released later this summer.
“I am at a point in my career where coming back to Hattiesburg gets a little more special every time I get a chance to,” said Doleac. “I can’t wait to be back to kick off the USM football season and celebrate the return of live music.”
Doleac, has been prominently featured in the television coverage of this year’s College World Series as the country music artist’s song “Key to the City” has been played throughout ESPN’s showing of the event.
Doleac, who played for Southern Miss from 2008-11 and was a member of the school’s 2009 squad which reached Omaha, went 2-for-2 in that CWS with a double.
“We’re excited to have Adam Doleac kick off our Spirit Park Live concert series and on Southern Station for our football home opener,” said Brad Smith, Southern Miss Senior Associate Director of Athletics for External Relations. “This is also part of a grand re-opening of our Southern Miss football gameday experience as we transition back to ‘normal.’ The fan experience plays a critical part in creating one of the best gameday atmospheres in the country and we’re looking forward to Sept. 11.”
