97.3 The Dawg's 5th Annual Holiday Hangover Show was originally scheduled for January 16 but we had to postpone it due to severe winter weather.

We worked with the artists' schedules and came up with a makeup date -- Tuesday, March 26, 2024.

The event will still be held at the Acadiana Center for the Arts in downtown Lafayette. However, there is one change.

Unfortunately, Hailey Whitters was not able to make the new date due to a scheduling conflict.

Don't fret though as she has promised to come back on another date and play a show for you! We hope to have that wrapped up soon and we'll be making that announcement, hopefully, by the end of the week.

If you had tickets to the original date for the Holiday Hangover Show, those tickets will be honored for the new date, which will feature Zach Top and Drew Baldridge.

Opening the show will be Acadiana favorites Jeff Dugan, Buddy Andrews, and Ory Veillon.

The Holiday Hangover Show is brought to you by Express Employment Lafayette. The show is also presented by our friends at RLB Construction and Seasafe.

Drew Baldridge was raised in Patoka, Illinois, and his music reflects small-town life while living large on the simple things.

His viral hit, "She's Somebody's Daughter," has gained over 300 million TikTok impressions, streamed over 105 million, and is now making waves at country radio.

Baldridge is an accomplished songwriter signed to Sony Music Publishing with over 300+ songs under his belt for major label acts like Locash, Bailey Zimmerman, and Chase Matthew.

Newcomer Zach Top is about as country as it gets. The 25-year-old is reviving the spirit of '90s traditionalists like George Strait, Randy Travis, and Keith Whitley. Many people have likened his voice to the latter.

Top grew up on a ranch in Sunnyside, Washington, and at the ripe age of seven, he formed a bluegrass band with his siblings called Top String. All through his teens and early twenties, he played in various bluegrass bands, including Modern Tradition, with whom he notched a string of hits on bluegrass radio, including the #1 song "Like It Ain't No Thing."

He's already appeared on the historic Grand Ole Opry multiple times and just debuted his mainstream single, "Sounds Like the Radio," to country radio in early January.

Local Openers

The Holiday Hangover Show will feature three great local artists opening the show -- Ory Veillon, Jeff Dugan, and Buddy Andrews.

Ory Veillon is a Lafayette native who has been playing music since middle school. At only 19 years old, his voice is nothing like what most of us sounded like at that age. He brings a traditional sound to the stage and we can't wait for you to hear him at the Holiday Hangover Show.

Jeff Dugan is a name many of you in Acadiana know and love. He has been delighting honky tonk crowds around south Louisiana for many years now. Dugan has garnered significant airplay on country radio over the years with songs like "No Fair Fallin' in Love," "Boys You Gotta Learn to Dance," and "Don't Tell Her," to name a few.

Buddy Andrews is a native of northeast Arkansas but has made Acadiana his home for the last few years. He and his band, The Branded, have been playing the local and regional scene heavily over the last couple of years delivering a traditional sound of country music.

As a reminder, you cannot buy tickets for our Holiday Hangover Show as we give them all away. Nearly all of the tickets were given away for the originally scheduled date.

However, we may have a few to give out leading up to the show so keep listening for a chance to score one of the remaining pairs of tickets.

The 5th Annual Holiday Hangover Show will start at 7:00 pm with doors opening at 6:00 pm on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, at the Acadiana Center for the Arts, located at 101 W Vermilion St in Downtown Lafayette.
