Tim Sullivan headlines Harvest Dance at center

Award-winning singer/songwriter Tim Sullivan will entertain at this year’s Harvest Dance at the community center.

As a teenager, Tim formed his first country band which was named one of the ten best bands in America in a national, “battle of the bands” competition. A year later, he was runner-up to a hot new band with a new male singer, Garth Brooks.

Tim moved to Los Angeles, and had a featured role in “Everybody’s All American,” starring Dennis Quaid and John Goodman. Tim also continued to appear on stage with such legends as Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell and Tammy Wynette.

Tim won Songwriter of the Year in Massachusetts for his song “Dance in the Rain,” and he also wrote the theme song for the 2003 Boston Red Sox “Cowboy Up.”

Tim has been lighting up the stages in Pagosa Springs, and keeping the dance floors moving nonstop over the years. So, be sure to make the Harvest Dance your stop for great music and entertainment — Oct. 17, 7-11:30 p.m. at the community center.

Tickets are available at Higher Grounds Coffee and the community center.
