When Jason Aldean returns to Macon this Friday, he will be bringing a few familiar faces.

The Macon native is headlining the “Concert for the Kids” at the Macon Coliseum to benefit the Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health and has enlisted local emerging talent to open the show.

Local singer Maggie Renfroe, who once appeared on NBC’s “The Voice,” and radio station WDEN-FM winner Trey Teem will open the Aug. 11 show along with Luke Combs, according to a press release.

Maggie Renfroe performs her song "Living in Our Prime" at the Creek 100.9 FM studio in July 2016. In August, it was announced that Renfroe will be a contestant on the television show "The Voice."

The benefit concert raised more than half a million dollars in 2016 at the Grand Opera House, and the move to the Macon Coliseum will help to accommodate even more fans this time around.

The show kicks off Friday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at JasonAldean.com, Ticketmaster.com and the Macon Coliseum box office.
