The annual Tampa Pig Jig fundraiser will be back this year on October 22 at Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park in Tampa. In its 11th year, this family- and pet-friendly event remains as popular as ever — and, like always, proceeds are donated to NephCure Kidney International (NephCure). Nephcare is the only non-profit organization committed to helping support treatment, research and the search for a cure of FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis), a kidney disease, and Nephrotic Syndrome. Since its inception, the Tampa Pig Jig event has donated millions to NephCure Kidney International, becoming its largest annual donor nationwide. The fundraisers include a concert, yummy food, a corporate BBQ competition, drinks and games.

SOUTHSIDE, Sam Hunt’s sophomore album, debuted to critical acclaim and landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in 2020. Named one of the Best Albums of the Year by The New York Times & US Weekly, the project features 12 songs written by Hunt including his No. 1 hits “Kinfolks,” “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s,” one of NPR’s Best Songs of 2020 “Hard to Forget,” & his 8x Platinum-selling, GRAMMY-nominated smash, “Body Like A Back Road.”
Hunt has received accolades from Associated Press, Billboard, Esquire, Entertainment Weekly, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, SPIN Magazine, Village Voice, The New York Times, The Washington Post & more. He has accumulated over 12 billion worldwide streams since MONTEVALLO’s release & has earned 39 million RIAA certified units.
Bahamas’ latest release, Sad Hunk, embodies an undaunted self-awareness, each track graced with his wry wit and unabashed heart. The GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter, otherwise known as Alfie Jurvanen, drew much inspiration from his home life and all the joy and struggle that comes with building a family together.
Kip Moore’s fourth studio album, Wild World, is a revelatory collection written as he traveled the globe like a self-described lone wolf. The album aims to make sense of a world battling nothing short of an identity crisis. It wasn’t the first time this blue-collar poet looked within for inspiration, but it’s become the clearest expression of the wisdom he found. Moore first splashed into the mainstream with the double-Platinum “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” in 2012. Then followed with three more bestselling #1s (“Hey Pretty Girl,” “Beer Money” and “More Girls Like You”), a trio of ambitious, critically acclaimed albums and two gritty EPs. He toured the world headlining his own shows, earning acclaim and a fierce following as an all-in performer in each setting.
X Ambassadors made their full-length debut with VHS, a 2015 release that saw the band transition from Ithaca alt-rockers and Brooklyn-indie-scene outsiders to Billboard stalwarts. Now certified platinum, VHS provided an intimate look at Sam Nelson Harris and his brother Casey Harris’s youth, delivering the genre-defying hits “Unsteady” and “Renegades.” The album led to a three-year global touring odyssey as well as a string of high-profile festival performances. VHS was followed by X Ambassadors’ 2019 sophomore album ORION, which they supported with an extensive headline tour of the U.S. A project inspired by ’60s and ’70s soul and R&B, the band’s Belong EP arrived in March 2020. The third full-length from X Ambassadors—The Beautiful Liar, is the latest and most ambitious outcome of the band’s hyper-creative tendencies. Released in 2021, the band pays homage to those beloved fictions of their childhood through lead singles, “My Own Monster” and “Okay.”
