Bluegrass group Balsam Range will feature award-winning Nashville musician and songwriter John Wiggins in the first show of its Winter Concert Series at the Colonial Theatre in Canton at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 3.
Wiggins is a Haywood County native who co-wrote a recent No. 1 country hit for Blake Shelton “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking?” and record breaking seller “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” recorded by Joe Nichols.

The performances is part of a fundraising “Donation Challenge” event to benefit the Haywood County Meals on Wheels program. The artists have each made a donation to start the support. Higher donation levels include business promotion and a “Meet and Greet” with the artists backstage.
