This is going to be an action-packed weekend in downtown Owensboro. It's HydroFair weekend and there will be two days of hydroplane racing action on the Ohio River Saturday and Sunday, August 20th and 21st. The weekend's going to be kicked off in incredible fashion at Friday After 5 on Friday evening.  Owensboro is going to be welcoming Blanco Brown to town.

Blanco Brown is most well-known for his viral hit song- "The Git Up".

"The Git Up" was an international smash and was certified 11x Platinum across three different countries. It garnered over four billion views and streams across a variety of social media platforms. Friday night, Blanco's going to be performing it at Friday After 5. It's a song that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart (where it held the top spot for 12 weeks).  On the strength of the song, Blanco was named Billboard's Top New Country Artist of 2019.

Since that time, Blanco has topped the country chart a second time. He was featured on the hit song "Just The Way" by Parmalee.

Blanco is well-known and admired for his country/hip-hop fusion and he's bringing that unique blend to the Jagoe Homes Riverfront Live Stage behind the Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront this Friday!

Blanco's concert will be preceded by "The Git Up Challenge to Make a Difference." Friday After 5 has teamed with the United Way of the Ohio Valley to bring awareness to a variety of local nonprofits, all of whom were challenged to film themselves doing "The Git Up". Multiple area nonprofits have done so in the hopes they can actually "open" for Blanco and perform the song on stage.
