Lathan Warlick concert

The City of Jackson, TN, and Jackson Hidden Tracks, an initiative by Visit Jackson, TN, are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated return of Jackson native, Lathan Warlick, for a special hometown concert on Friday, July 5th at the Carl Perkins Civic Center. This promises to be a memorable night filled with uplifting music and community spirit. The show will feature an opening performance by rising University of Memphis-Lambuth senior, “Artic.”

Lathan Warlick has achieved national acclaim for his distinctive fusion of Christian rap and country music, and has collaborated with notable artists such as Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line, RaeLynn, and Russell Dickerson. His work has inspired many with powerful stories of faith and resilience.

Warlick expressed his excitement about the upcoming show, saying, “I am so pumped to be able to come to my hometown of Jackson and give y’all a great show! I can’t wait to share that with everyone and celebrate God, Love, and Unity. I love my city and can’t wait to be back home! Let’s goo!!”

“Jackson takes great pride in welcoming back Lathan Warlick. We are honored to celebrate his impressive career and look forward to this fantastic hometown performance,” said Mayor Scott Conger. “It will be a wonderful night for our community to come together and celebrate one of our own.”
