HOT SPRINGS, Ark. — Before any professional anglers have even made a cast in Lake Hamilton, Fishing League Worldwide has already landed a lunker. Country music superstar Trace Adkins is set to bring his fiery and memorable live performance to the 2019 FLW Cup at 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 11.  

Adkins will be performing a free concert on the weigh-in stage at Bank OZK Arena in Hot Springs, Ark.

He will take the stage before the world’s premier bass anglers weigh their final-day limits at the event – professional bass fishing’s world championship. Fans of all ages are encouraged to attend the free concert, which is presented by Realtree and KSSN 96.

The FLW Cup, the world championship of bass fishing, returns to Hot Springs and Lake Hamilton, August 9-11 with a $300,000 top prize on the line as well as the title of world’s best bass angler. 

This year’s championship tournament will feature 52 of the best anglers from across four FLW tournament circuits and is being hosted by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and Visit Hot Springs. 

It will also feature the inaugural Dee Zee FLW/KBF Cup presented by YakAttack for the world’s top kayak anglers and The Bass Federation Junior World Championship for top young anglers from across the country.
