GRAMMY-Winner Vince Gill Headlines Free Outdoor Concert Presented by Beaches of South Walton September 25

GRAMMY-winner Vince Gill will headline a free outdoor “Back to the Beach” concert Saturday, Sept. 25, from the beautiful Beaches of South Walton along Florida’s Northwest Gulf Coast. Fans are invited to bring their beach blankets and low-back chairs to enjoy this casual concert amidst the relaxed and scenic setting at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort.
“We’re showing thanks to our visitors and residents with the opportunity to experience the musical talents of legendary Vince Gill,” said Dawn Moliterno, executive director of the Beaches of South Walton TDC. “We hope this will entice those who have never been to our destination with an added incentive to come and see our beautiful beaches and communities, as well as welcome back our loyal visitors who may not have made it here this summer.”

Set to the backdrop of the Choctawhatchee Bay, the free outdoor concert will be held at the award-winning The Links Golf Course driving range at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. Gates will open at 4 p.m. so guests can come early to set out their beach blankets. The concert will begin at 6 p.m.

The free show will be a ticketed event. Those who wish to secure a ticket will have one of three options: (1) register online at, (2) obtain tickets when booking stays and packages through Beaches of South Walton lodging partners, or (3) visit the Beaches of South Walton Visitor Information Center.

Vince Gill, popular country singer and member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, is a fan of the area’s beautiful beaches and charming beach communities.

“We are so pleased and thankful that he has committed to headlining the ‘Back to the Beach’ concert,” said Moliterno. “His support will help communities along Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast with the economic recovery we so desperately need while proving that these beaches are as beautiful as ever.”

Gill, one of the most popular and most recorded country singers of the past quarter-century, is expected to play a 90-minute show. He has sold more than 26 million albums and has received 20 GRAMMY awards throughout his career. For more information on Vince Gill, visit

Ample parking at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort will be available for all concert goers, including those not staying on property.
