Benefit concert set in honor of "Crowbar" Russell

HARDY, AR (KAIT) - Cruisers in Hardy is hosting a benefit concert in honor of "Crowbar" Russell.

Gary Russell, better known as "Crowbar," passed away in early May.

Russell was a northeast Arkansas native who became a reality TV star.

According to Cruisers owner K.C. Schultz, the restaurant will host the benefit on July 16.

Schultz invites any musicians in the area to come out and play.

Proceeds from the event will go toward a memorial that friends are trying to put in Hardy.

Schultz said the event is planned for seven that night, but if enough musicians want to play, he may open the event all day long.
