Special guests include Anne Young, Lela Dalby, A Servant’s Heart, Bailey Rae, Tanner Young and Will Clark.

Jae L. Stilwell, vocalist and McSwain Theatre general manager, said this New Year’s Eve event is good fun for everyone.

“This is also a very special show for us because it is in memory of some of our dear friends,” said Stilwell. “Jimmy Tignor was a wonderful singer and all-around great guy. His unique voice and sweet spirit will certainly be missed on the McSwain Theatre stage.”

A longtime performer at the McSwain, Mr. Tignor died this year.

“Anne Young will also be singing ‘Wish You Were Here’ in memory of Leroy Teeter,” said Stilwell. “He also passed away this year. He was a sweet gentle giant that we will all miss and loved so.”
