HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Tickets are still available for this weekend's concerts on Mississippi's West Coast featuring country music star Martina McBride and Hancock County's America's Got Talent winner Michael Grimm.

The two are teaming up for two special concerts to promote tourism. 

Grimm will perform Friday night with fellow NBC's America's Got Talent (AGT) Top 10 contestant Taylor Mathews. McBride's show will be on Saturday night. Both shows start at 7:00 p.m. at the Hancock County Multi-Purpose Center.

Martina McBride is a four-time CMA Female Vocalist of the year with more than 18 million in album sales and 22 Top 10 singles, six of which hit top of the charts. Some of her biggest hits include "Concrete Angel," "Where Would You Be," "and Independence Day."

Louisiana's rising sensation Marc Broussard will also perform on Saturday at 5 p.m.

Friday, Grimm will make a special visit to alma mater, Hancock High School in the Kiln, to perform a few songs for the students and to sign a new mural created by the students on display in his honor.

Grimm's visit to the school is closed to the public, however, WLOX has been invited to attend. Watch for that story on WLOX News and WLOX.com.

Winning with a record number of votes, Grimm was awarded $1 million as well as the headline spot on the first ever national America's Got Talent live tour. He's set to release a new album on Epic Records in early 2011.
