Rock Fore Dough concert plays Lady A Pavilion

EVANS, GA (WFXG) -

It's the tenth annual Rock Fore Dough Concert benefiting the First Tee of Augusta, a non-profit organization that helps kids develop golf and life skills.


Country singers Will Hoge, Randy Houser and Darius Rucker all took the stage tonight after meeting some fans before the show.  Randy is new to the concert and to Masters week.

"This is really just, I'm definitely honored to be out here this week," he says.

While Darius has some experience playing in the concert.

"I've probably played seven or eight of them so you know it's always a great time to come, during Augusta during Masters week," Rucker says.

And after the rain yesterday, the guys were just ready to perform for a good cause.

"Raising money for kids to discover the game of golf and I mean we couldn't ask for a more beautiful day," says Houser.

"It's just fun playing a show where you know everybody comes out to see you play and I've been doing it for so long it's a good time," says Rucker.

They have different picks for who will take home the green jacket though.

"I gotta say Boo Weekley," says Houser.

"Keegan Bradley I think's gonna have a good tournament, you know you always gotta watch out for Phil," says Rucker.

But the crowd has them pumped to play the big show.

"The crowd's fired up and it definitely excites us a little more to get out here," says Houser.

Now all proceeds raised from the concert tonight go towards the First Tee of Augusta and in the past nine years the event has raised over $600,000 for the cause.

There is discussion about another "teach-in" being planned in the future. Copyrigh...
