Artist Ryan Perry, of Nashville, Tennessee, will perform some of country’s top 40 hits, including songs from Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan and many more. With his newly released EP, “Yeah That’s Us,” Perry is working his way around the region, from opening for Lee Greenwood to playing the after parties for Toby Keith, Ronnie Dunn and The Band Perry.

Edge Brewing Equestrian, the philanthropic arm of Edge Brewing Barcelona, donates a portion of its profits from the European beer portfolio to charity organizations. HERD, based in Tryon, will receive 100 percent of all Edge’s beer sales at Huckleberry’s.

HERD is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit equine rescue group that saves equines from dire conditions and, in many cases, slaughter. Through fundraising and support in the community, HERD rescues, restores and retrains equines to adopt them to approved homes, giving them a second chance to excel in a productive life, representatives said.

To date, HERD has helped over 1,000 horses find new homes.  

Huckleberry’s Restaurant is located at 62 N. Trade St., Tryon. Those interested in learning more about the Nov. 2 event may call Huckleberry’s at 828-436-0025 or may visit
