Ram Jam: Family Day

4:30pm - 6:30pm
LeGrand Alumni and Visitors Center
Singer-songwriter Kris Allen, winner of Season 8 of “American Idol,” will perform during the Angelo State University Alumni Association’s Ram Jam tailgate party on Family Day, Saturday, Sept. 27, at the LeGrand Alumni and Visitors Center, 1620 University Ave.

The concert, sponsored by the ASU Center for Student Involvement, will start at 4:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. KIXY 94.7 radio will also be on hand to provide prizes and giveaways at the tailgate party preceding the 7 p.m. kickoff of the Rams football game against West Texas A&M at LeGrand Stadium at 1st Community Credit Union Field.

Allen, an Arkansas native, followed his “American Idol” victory with the release of “Live Like We’re Dying,” a platinum-selling single that rose to the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. He recently released his third album, “Horizons,” which includes the single “Beautiful & Wild,” a song partly inspired by the birth of his first child in the summer of 2013.
