Paul Brandt will be in Rimbey Jan. 28.

Country music star Paul Brandt won’t perform a concert to honour Rimbey’s small town heroes but this Friday he’ll be glad to meet you just the same.

Brandt will appear at the Rimbey UFA petroleum agency on Jan. 28 as his tour bus travels between Small Town Heroes concerts.

On his way from Milk River, home of one hero, to Beaverlodge, the hometown of another hero, Brandt will roll into Rimbey on his tour bus at about 12:15 p.m. He’ll be at the UFA petroleum agency for about 30 minutes, depending on weather and road conditions, arriving from visiting with fans in Ponoka.

UFA owner Shannon Collins welcomes everyone to take a break from their day to drop by the petroleum outlet and say hello to the five-time CCMA male artist of the year.

She’s also given a special invitation to Rimbey’s Small Town Heroes nominees, Ray Durand and John Curtis.

“I do believe we’ll have a lot (of fans) out.”

Meeting Brandt at the UFA will also give everyone a good opportunity to take a photograph of him or his tour bus and entering the UFA’s A Picture is Worth $1,000 in Fuel Contest. Go to www. ufa.com/smalltownheroes for details.
