Cifers brings ‘real country’ to Sunset Sounds series

SoVaNow.com / September 06, 2017
It is time to put on your boots and do the boot scooting boogie for country music artist Tim Cifers. The next event in the South Hill Market Square Sunset Sounds concert series will bring Cifers to South Hill’s Centennial Park Sept. 21. Admission is $3. The gate opens at 6 p.m. and the music will run from 6:30-9:30 p.m.

Tim Cifers grew up in Granville County, N.C. and was raised on his grandparent’s farm. He taught himself to sing and play guitar and began singing at age 14 ; some of his favorite artists are George Strait, Conway Twitty and Tracy Lawrence.
As far as music goes, he has put in a lot of hard work, and it is paying off. He has won talent competition after talent competition and played with some of the biggest stars in country music: Luke Bryan, Justin Moore, Cole Swindell, Rascal Flatts, Rodney Atkins, Ricky Skaggs, and more.

In 2015 he was nominated for the Carolina Country Male Vocalist of the Year. 
According to his website bio he wants to bring back real country music: “That’s what country music is missing today! Real country! My goal in this business is to be one of the guys that bring real country back. And when I say that, I mean songs about real life experiences. As a songwriter, I focus on writing good lyrics that have substance, and meaning.

“And as musicians, my band and I want to be heard and enjoyed, while being who we are. So, we blend a touch of the traditional sound with the modern country/rock sound …. I am blessed in feeling that I am living out my calling every day! And every time I walk onto the stage, and with every song I write. I am doing what I love, and love what I do. That is the dream.”
