Bare will take stage on May 25

Published 11:04am Monday, April 7, 2014

It will be a collective “congratulations” from his hometown when country music singer and songwriter Bobby Bare takes the stage at the Ro-Na Theater on May 25.

Bare took his place in country music history when it was announced he would join Cowboy Jack Clement and Kenny Rogers as 2013 inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

The idea is to honor Bare but the benefit is twofold.

“This show is a chance for our communities to honor Bobby Bare for his induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame,” Rick Jansen, member of Friends of Ironton, said. “The money raised from concessions, etc., will be used for Ro-Na improvements.”

Currently recording on Plowboy records, Bare released his first album in seven years, “Darker Than Light,” in 2012.

Tickets are on sale now at and will be available at the door for $20 the day of the show. Doors open at 5 p.m.
