The opening chords of “Dixieland Delight” drew excited screams from the crowd and a grin from country artist John King.

King played a free concert on South Lawn on Saturday in conjunction with the Interfraternity Council’s Hope Harbor benefit event. 

“We want to benefit all the students of the Bowling Green community as a whole,” said Will Harris, IFC Vice President of Judicial Affairs. “Something that we want to push on the fraternity community (to remember is), ‘If you see something, say something.'”

King, an up-and-coming country artist, played a set comprised of his original music mixed with popular hits like “Uptown Funk” and the crowd favorite, “Dixieland Delight.”
