SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Aug. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Country star Maggie Rose headlined the Stearns Square Concert Series on Thursday, Aug. 7 as part of downtown Springfield's summer-long concert series held in the city's entertainment district.
The long-running series began as CityBlock in the summer of 2000 when the city closed off part of Main Street in downtown Springfield and created an outdoor, festival-type setting for live concerts.
The following year, the series moved to Stearns Square in an effort to highlight the Club Quarter's eclectic mix of restaurants, nightclubs, office space, and market-rate housing.
The live music series takes place on Thursday nights in downtown Springfield's historic Stearns Square. The square, centrally located between Worthington and Bridge Streets, serves as the hub of the city's entertainment district in the heart of downtown.
Maggie Rose is the second country artist in the season series, following an earlier appearance of regional act Truck Stop Troubadours. The singer is signed with Scott Sirman's RPM entertainment firm and label. Sirman was responsible for overseeing the early stages of country megastar Tim McGraw's career.
Maggie Rose is known for her cover of rock band Kings of Leon's "Use Somebody" and her own 2012 Top 40 country hit "I Ain't Your Mama."
Along with Maggie Rose the concert series has brought in regional and national acts like The Smithereens, John Eddie, and Spin Doctors.
The concerts are free and open to the public and the music begins at 8 p.m.
The Stearns Square Summer Concert Series is produced by the Springfield Business Improvement District. For more information in the concerts and events going on in downtown Springfield, visit www.springfielddowntown.com.
