Greater Brewton Area Chamber of Commerce President Melanie McGougin said Henson will bring a “great feel” to the chamber’s annual crawfish boil event at Burnt Corn Creek.

“I got to see him in Nashville, and I thought that his music was fantastic,” McGougin said. “His performance won’t disappoint.”

Raised in Moulton, Henson’s “One Night Left” is currently scoring airplay on country radio.

He takes his musical roots from artists such as Gary Alan, Jake Owen, Jason Aldean , George Straight, and Jamey Johnson. He has co-headlined shows with Parmalee, Drake White, Shenandoah, Chris Janson, as well as held the opening position for Brantley Gilbert, Travis Tritt, Joe Nichols, and more at numerous festivals.

“To me (being a musician), it’s not about fame or money,” he said. “It’s not about having a No. 1 hit on the radio or selling out football stadiums, even though those things are cool and things that all musicians dream of, It’s about being you – doing what you love, and putting on a show for the fans that they won’t forget.

“Those fans pay money to come to these shows, so it’s my job to create memories for them doing what I love that they can cherish forever,” he said. “It’s all about the fans.”
