It's an all-star line up, that would make any rock and roll fan, get out of their seats.

Artists like Carey Murdock, are coming home to a familiar place.

"To come home and play the Augusta area means a lot," he told News 12.

And he's back for a great cause.

"It's kind of an expensive sport in a way, so to help people just get out here and enjoy it, i am always up for that," he said.

In years past, the Rock Fore! Dough concert was on the home green of the First Tee of Augusta.

But this year it has a new home, at the Lady Antebellum Pavillion in Evans.

They made the change, so less money goes to the venue and more goes to the kids.

"This venue is alittle bit more condusive to the music, i think it will be good for the fans," said Bear Rinehart of NeedToBreathe.

Bands like his are helping to give kids a greener future.

It's just a positive thing for kids to be involved, obviously at that age there's alot of junk you can get into, and golf's a good alternative to that," he says.

Ed Rowland of the Ed Rowland and The Sweet Tea Project says there could be a bright future for these kids.

"I think it's a wonderful program, and i think it's going to be more wonderful when one of those kids grows up and wins a major," said Rowland.

A program that could possibly see the next Tiger Woods.

"And when that happens, everyones going to saying, First Tee, First Tee," he said.

With the music blasting into the evening, and bringing in a crowd of thousands, these bands got their message across.

"First Tee Charities incredible, anytime you can get kids out, inspired, and having the arts kind of kickstart it, it's beautiful," said Grace Potter, another band performing Tuesday evening.

Nothing but good music and good fun, all while doing a good deed.
