“The mission of our tournament from day one has been to help improve and complement the quality of life in Northwest Arkansas, so providing a top concert event that benefits local charities along with world class professional golf over the weekend further reinforces that mission,” said Jay Allen, Tournament Chairman.
“Walmart’s sponsorship of both the AMP and the Northwest Arkansas Championship are important elements of giving back to the local community and enhancing the quality of life in our home region. We are delighted to tie the two events together, and look forward to seeing community golf and music fans come together to enjoy a week of festivities at Pinnacle Country Club and the Walmart AMP,” said Gisel Ruiz, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Walmart US.
Allen added that other artists that have headlined the community concert during LPGA week in the past include Huey Lewis and the News, Travis Tritt, Smashmouth, Three Dog Night, and Kenny Loggins.
