COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina Athletic Department and accomplished Nashville singer-songwriter and Gamecock alumnus Patrick Davis are joining forces this fall for the release of “The Gamecock Album,” featuring five South Carolina Gamecock themed compositions along with seven bonus tracks highlighting some of Davis’ most popular solo works. “The Gamecock Album,” which will benefit the Gamecock Club, also includes a sure to be fan favorite collaboration between Davis and two of South Carolina’s most famous musical acts, Darius Rucker and Edwin McCain, on the newly penned “We Ain’t Far.”
“The University of South Carolina has what we believe to be the most passionate fan base in all of college athletics and long before his Gamecock related material Patrick Davis was already a musical favorite of Gamecock Country,” states Associate Athletics Director/CMO Eric Nichols. “I was proud to work with someone who represents the Gamecock brand very well in that he is an alum, has special talents, and has a true love for the Gamecocks.” Davis’ “The Gamecock Album” will be available Friday, August 23rd at GamecocksOnline.com, PatrickDavisMusic.com, iTunes and at local South Carolina retailers, including Jewelry Warehouses and at Williams-Brice Stadium.
In addition to the album, Davis and his backing band will be performing before the 2013 South Carolina football season opener on August 29th at the Gamecock Amphitheater in the old Farmers Market (located directly across from Williams-Brice Stadium) from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. ET.
