'Survivor' to play Charlotte concert

Want to get a sneak peek at someone who might turn into a reality TV star?

Chase Rice, a former UNC-Chapel Hill football player and a member of the current cast of "Survivor: Nicaragua," spent a year working at Hendrick Motorsports in Mooresville as a NASCAR jackman before moving to Nashville to pursue a country-music career.

On Thursday night, he'll perform a concert at the new Thurston's Bar, which is located at 1600 E. Woodlawn Road in Park Towne Village (downstairs on the patio just to the left of Sport Clips). He is tentatively scheduled to go on at about 9 p.m.

"I haven’t really played in Charlotte," says Rice, 24, who went to high school in Fairview, near Asheville. "I’ve played in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Wilmington, Asheville, but I’ve never played in Charlotte."

The 21st season of the CBS hit premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 15, and features a cast of 20 that includes two-time Super Bowl winning coach Jimmy Johnson.

Amazing, a non reality show thread about events in Charlotte.

I read all about TV shows coming here, but I read nothing on this paper/blogs about local or regional music, unless its a pop act. Sad city you have here.
