University of Missouri fans are already fired up about Mizzou’s first football season in the Southeastern Conference. Texas Pete® Hot Sauce wants to wake up football fans even more, sponsoring a free concert featuring Corey Smith on the eve of the big game against the Georgia Bulldogs.

Smith will headline a free outdoor concert at The Blue Note that starts at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7.

Joining Smith to rock the fans will be Connor Christian and Southern Gothic. Of course, the Texas Pete® crew will be on hand to give away all sorts of hot swag, including koozies, hot sauce samples, T-shirts and the like; and delicious Buffalo-style wings basted in Texas Pete’s signature bold, balanced hot sauce.

“Texas Pete® Hot Sauce is an official sponsor and longtime supporter of the SEC and is excited to help welcome Mizzou into the fold with such an exciting event,” said Glenn Garner, Director of Marketing for Texas Pete®. “Corey Smith, like us, is a fan of good food, good music, football and all aspects of Southern culture.
