Rising Country Star Taking a Liking to La Porte

(La Porte, IN) - After performing here twice recently, Dillon Carmichael is kind of sweet on La Porte. "I love it up here," said Carmichael after his set at Friday night's Red, Wine, and Brew.  "I love the orchards and all the agriculture around here, all the corn."  Carmichael said he has found a little time to live the lake life.  "Obviously Stone and Pine Lake are beautiful, clear, see-through," he said. "I've been on a boat out there.  I kind of feel like this is maybe my second or third home.  I love this county."


Carmichael played a concert overlooking Pine Lake back in September.  As for Friday’s show, he was impressed with the La Porte crowd's enthusiasm. "It's unreal," he said after his early evening set. "I mean, y'all don't mess around, buddy.  Y'all have a good time out here."


Frankly, Carmichael is happy to be out playing anywhere after over a year of musical quarantine. "It's not back to normal," he admits.  "It's picking up, though. I mean, this time last year, we weren't even close to doing anything like this."


Friday's concert was a benefit to support local first responders organized by Bethany Lutheran Church.
