Hodges headlines successful Big Sky Bash

Country music star J.T. Hodges brought down the house during the annual Big Sky Bash in Libby on July 8.

Hodges was joined on stage by fellow country up-and-comer Erik Dylan and by Sandpoint, Idaho-based Devon Wade for the seventh annual benefit concert for the Center for Asbestos Related Diseases Foundation. The foundation uses the concert as a fundraiser to help promote the work of the CARD Clinic in diagnosing and treating asbestos-related medical conditions.

“We had another great turnout this year,” said CARD Foundation board president Zach McNew. “It’s always great to see this community come out and have a good time while supporting the critical work of the CARD Clinic. JT Hodges gave us a great show, as did Erik Dylan and Devon Wade.”

McNew said the foundation plans to continue bringing the Big Sky Bash to Libby and promised more great shows in the future.

“Dr. Black is committed to the Big Sky Bash, not just as a fundraiser, but also as a great community event,” McNew said. “The board is already hard at work making plans for next year’s show, which we hope will be bigger and better than ever before.”
