KFAN’S CHRIS HAWKEY TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM AT SAINTS JULY 3 INDEPENCE DAY GAME
ST. PAUL, MN (July 2, 2014) – Usually known for his country music, Chris Hawkey will be singing a different tune at a St. Paul Saints baseball game, that of the National Anthem before the biggest night of the season.
On Thursday, July 3 prior to the Independence Celebration Hawkey will sing the Star Spangled Banner for the first time at Midway Stadium. It is not the first time, however, that Hawkey has performed at the ballpark. Prior to the Saints winter Ice Ball Game in 2009, The Chris Hawkey Band performed for nearly 1,000 fans in attendance in the Saints parking lot. The weather for Thursday night’s game is expected to be much warmer than the 19 degrees on the frigid February day.
Hawkey is the producer and co-host of Minneapolis’ popular AM radio morning show on KFAN 1130, the Power Trip Morning Show. Chris has charted three Billboard country singles with his band Rocket Club.
Recently, Hawkey just completed an eight song self entitled album, which he recorded in Nashville.
