Wyoming-based country music band Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band will perform a free concert during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which will be held from Aug. 7-16.

Williams’ show will be at 8 p.m. on Aug. 8 at the Iron Horse Saloon in Sturgis, South Dakota. The group will be joined by Brandon Jones.

The concert will only be open to those 21 or older. Williams will perform songs from his new album “3rd Street,” which features the award-winning single “Wyoming Wind.”

This is Williams’ fifth consecutive year performing at the rally.

All of the rally concerts are free and include headliners such as Colt Ford, Night Ranger, Hairball and Quiet Riot.

Williams grew up on a ranch in Moorcroft and spent some time as a saddle bronc rider before pivoting to music full time. Williams and drummer Travis DeWitt started the Younger Brothers Band when they were in high school and it has since become one of the most popular groups to come out of Wyoming.

The Younger Brothers Band has performed alongside artists such as Dwight Yoakam, Miranda Lambert and Travis Tritt over the years.
