Country music star Jake Owen will play a concert benefiting the John Deere Classic’s Birdies for Charity program on April 19 at Rhythm City Casino Resort in Davenport, John Deere Classic tournament officials announced Friday.

Proceeds from the concert will go to the Birdies for Charity Bonus Fund, which, as its name suggests, is used to finance bonus payments to the more than 450 charities that participate in the Birdies program annually. The more money in the Bonus Fund, the more of a bonus that can be paid to participating charities.

Andrew Lehman, JDC tournament director said,

“We are thrilled that Jake Owen is going to be performing a concert in town that will benefit the Birdies Bonus Fund. Jake is extremely popular in our community, and we’re excited to be able to bring him here. With charities doing such a great job of raising money for their organizations, it’s incumbent upon us to make sure we support them with meaningful bonus payments.”
