Country music star Colton James will headline the entertainment for the World's Richest" Tarpon Tournament during Tarpon Festival Weekend.
Jams has opened for Toby Keith, Mark Chestnut, Chris Cagle, Joe Nichols, the Dixie Chicks, Lonestar, Keith Anderson and Trick Pony.
His most memorable performance was when he opened for Jason Aldean at Little Creek Amphibious Base where 16,000 fans applauded his performance of "Brave Men," a tribute to American troops.
"These men and women do something incredible for us. They deserve being recognized for the sacrifice they make and this is my small way of letting them know how much we appreciate them."
Jams also wrote the theme song for the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation "Save it for the Kids," which he will perform Saturday in downtown Boca Grande after the Gasparilla Island Kid's Classic.
