Pat Green returns to the Las Palmas to promote new album

ENT_Pat-GreenPat Green is no stranger to the Valley. This will not be his first time entertaining Valley residents, or his first time performing at Las Palmas Race Park.

For a man whose new album begins with a powerful song called “Footsteps of Our Fathers,” Pat Green has blazed his own trail in a way that few artists today can claim. Even with all the artistic and popular success he has experienced along the way, What I’m For is the stirring sound of Pat Green arriving as a major American singer-songwriter who has managed to make his own way in country music and beyond.
