“The band and I are excited to be playing at Black Diamond HD and meeting all our fans in southern Illinois, soon,” Danny Shirley of Confederate Railroad, said in the release. “The fans made this possible, and we are beyond grateful to share our love of music with them Sept 5.”

Confederate Railroad was scheduled to play at the Du Quoin State Fair on Aug. 27. Last week, The Illinois Department of Agriculture cancelled the appearance.

“This is the only show the dealership has scheduled for 2019, so come and show support for the band and southern Illinois,” Zimbro said in the press release.
