The 2014 season of Back Porch Music On The Lawn closes with a free concert double bill, part of the 10th anniversary celebrations for American Tobacco.
Michael Rank, a North Carolina singer-songwriter profiled Thursday on Morning Edition, opens the program at 6 p.m. "I truly couldn't be more grateful and excited to be part of this outstanding concert series and tonight's event," Rank said.
