Featuring some of the hottest, up-and-coming artists and rock bands, “Live at the Landmark” has brought whiskey and music together at iconic American landmarks in New Orleans, San Francisco and Chicago this year.

Now, all that remains is a stop in New York City and then the finale is set for the ultimate landmark — the Jack Daniel distillery here in Lynchburg.

“Beginning with the formation of Lynchburg’s Silver Cornet Band nearly 150 years ago, Jack Daniel set the stage for great whiskey and music that continues today,” said Laura Petry, Brand Director for Jack Daniel’s. “In celebration of that special relationship, we’re proud to provide this unique opportunity for fans across the country to experience the influences and styles of today’s bands.”

In support of organizations that do things the right way, the Jack Daniel’s “Live at the Landmark” concert series is proud to benefit charities along the way.

The concert series began on April 4 in New Orleans at the Old U.S. Mint and featured The Airborne Toxic Event, benefitting The Louisiana Museum Foundation. A week later the series was in Chicago’s Germania Place and featured The Joy Formidable, benefitting Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

On April 14, the tour headed west to San Francisco, where a performance at City Hall featured St. Lucia and benefited Operation Gratitude.

On May 8, New York City and the Statue of Liberty will host Capital Cities, benefitting Charity: Water. The series will then head south to Tennessee, where Old 97s — an alternative country band from Dallas, Texas, formed in 1993 — will entertain guests here at Jack Daniel Distillery.

“We are hitting our stride with the Live at the Landmark concert series for the second year. And we’re most excited to bring it to Middle Tennessee,” said spokesperson Stephanie Winn. “The Old 97s will close out the Live at the Landmark series at the Jack Daniel Distillery in Lynchburg on Saturday, May 17.”

Tickets are free, but only available through sweepstakes online at <> until April 28. Participants must be 21-years old and up.

Live at the Landmark is a-one of-a-kind concert series sharing great music with other great American landmarks from coast to coast, celebrating the long history of Jack and music. The Jack Daniel Distillery gig is the final of five shows in the 2014 series, all featuring well-known indie rock bands, concluding in May at the ultimate landmark — the Jack Daniel Distillery.

The 2013 series featured Okkervil River at Grand Central Terminal in NYC; Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears on the U.S.S. Midway in San Diego; Metric at Pearl Stable in San Antonio; Delta Spirit at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles and Eagles of Death Metal in the shadow of The Gateway Arch in St. Louis.
