FERDINAND — Rising country music star Cale Dodds will lead the main act during a free night of entertainment at the 2019 Ferdinand Heimatfest at 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 22. Abigail Rose Clark will open for Dodds at 7:30 p.m.

The festival is sponsored by MasterBrand.

Dodds first made a name for himself as a songwriter as A Thousand Horses took his co-penned song “Drunk Dial” to No. 23 on the billboard country charts in 2015. A couple years later in 2017, Dodds signed with Warner Music Nashville.

He’s since put out eight original tracks, including his first charting radio single, the cleverly cool breakup ballad, “Take You Back.” CMT named Dodds a 18 for 2018 Artist and Rolling Stone hailed him as a “New Country Artist You Need To Know.”

Abigail Rose Clark is an 18-year-old Pendleton, Indiana, native. She is in the process of producing her first album featuring some of her original songs. She has also covered classics by John Sebastian, Ray Davies, Roger McGuinn and Elliott Murphy.

The Heimatfest’s Friday night entertainment will feature local favorite Studebaker, playing classic rock with a touch of country.

The Ferdinand Heimatfest will be held at 18th Street Park June 21-22. The fest features games for kids, a variety of contests, food, a beer garden and entertainment. Visit. www.ferdinandheimatfest.com for more information.
