Churches, businesses and organizations in the area are joining the Town of Williamston to place lighted displays in Williamston’s Christmas Park this holiday season. Opening night ceremonies and lighting of the park will be held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Nov. 26, 2016 at 6 p.m., at the Amphitheater Stage in Mineral Spring Park.

Austin Webb to headline Spring Water Festival entertainment

Austin Webb will be performing a special “homecoming show” in his hometown of Williamston, SC, headlining the 2015 Spring Water Festival on Saturday, Aug. 22.



Since winning a song writing contest in Greenville and moving to Nashville in 2011, Webb signed a publishing deal with Red Vinyl Music and a recording deal with Streamsound Records, co-owned by Grammy-winner and famed music producer Byron Gallimore. Gallimore produces Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sugarland and others.

With Streamsound, Webb released his debut single, “It’s All Good”, in December 2012. The song debuted at number 53 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in February 2013.

His second single, “Slip On By”, was released in July 2013 and peaked on the Billboard Country Airplay chart at number 40 in early 2014.

In December 2013, Webb made his debut National Anthem performance at the Green Bay Packers Lambeau Field.

In March 2014, Webb’s third single “Raise ‘Em Up” was released and debuted at number 58 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.

His latest single, “All Country on You” recently reached Top 40 status on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and is getting airplay across the country and locally on WSSL radio.The song was written by Mark Irwin, Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, who also collaborated on hits including Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” and Tyler Farr’s “Redneck Crazy.”

The song takes a different approach to the topic of women-done-wrong, taking the perspective of a man who’s learned the hard way not to cross a country girl.

Webb has performed four times on the Grand Ole Opry stage.

Austin Webb will headline entertainment Saturday on the Amphitheater Stage. Saturday’s entertainment will also feature Royal Scotsmen Band, Blue Sky Band, Jake Bartley Band and others to be announced soon.

It was the first theme song GAC used for one of its TV shows and the music video stayed at number two in the top 25 videos on for over two weeks.

His debut album “Dirt”, received rave reviews, winning multiple music awards, including ‘Country Album of the Year’ at the 16th Annual Los Angeles Music Awards, which also named Hoge as Contemporary Christian Singer/Songwriter Of The Year for “Get The Door”.
