EarlyWorks Executive Director Bart Williams said Remington, which will open a $110 million firearms factory near Huntsville International Airport in 2015, wanted to put on the concert "to bring some holiday cheer" to the Rocket City.
The company is also working with a national charity to bring in a tractor-trailer load of food that will be distributed Friday to Manna House and the Food Bank of North Alabama, said Williams.
Several food trucks will be lined up along Monroe Street on Thursday evening to help feed the concert crowd, he said. While admission to the concert is free, there is a suggested $10 donation to Manna House and the Food Bank of North Alabama.
Dugger, who grew up in the town of Roanoke near Auburn, has developed a loyal following of NASCAR fans by playing at clubs near the racing circuit. According to the biography on his website, Dugger has performed with country artists including Trace Adkins, Sarah Evans, Diamond Rio and Craig Morgan.
Jim Ed Norman, who has worked with The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt and Hank Williams Jr., among others, is producing Dugger's debut album for Sidewalk Records.
Brice, a native of Sumter, S.C., appeared on CMT's first season of "Can You Duet," finishing eighth. His brother, Lee Brice, won this year's Academy of Country Music Song of the Year for his hit, "I Drive Your Truck."
