EVANS, GA (WFXG) -
Grace Potter and the Nocturnals played
at the Lady Antebellum Amphitheater during Tuesday's Rock Fore! Dough concert; but
they came prepared to play the Augusta National too.
"I've got my green jacket on,"
said band member Matthew Burr. Potter said, "I'll be his caddy, I'll let him do
Of course their chance of playing in
the Masters isn't good; but that isn't stopping them from dreaming big.
Burr said, "She's going to wait
for me at the 19th hole and meanwhile I'll be out there playing around with
Bubba Watson and Tiger."
But the men of NEEDTOBREATHE have some
different opinions on who will take home this year's green jacket.
"I went Sergio I think, I'm going
Tiger, he's going with the obvious, I'm going Kevin Streelman, he's one of our buddies,"
said band members Bear and Bo Rinehart and Seth Bolt.
They say they're putting money down on
their favorite golfers.
"Right now it's $20, we'll see if
it heightens, it probably will. Sometimes it gets out of hand with us,"
said Bear Rineheart.
Even though their bets may get out of
hand, NEEDTOBREATHE and the other performers at the concert are giving a big
hand to the First Tee of Augusta.
They're giving 100% of the concert
proceeds to the golf program, so the young golfers enrolled in the First Tee
will continue to learn their strokes and other valuable lessons off the course.
"It helped me develop more
personal skills and learn how to talk to different people and how to greet
people in a different way," said First Tee student Danielle Reynolds.
The chance to help students like
Reynolds is why local musician Carey Murdoch says he's excited to be a part of Rock
"To give back to the community
that gave to us and kind of helped us get our feet on the ground,"
Event coordinators won't know for several weeks how much
money was raised for the First Tee.
They believe they raised more money this year than in previous years because they didn't have to pay to set up the stage at the Amphitheater like they had to at the First Tee.
