Music is returning to the main stage of the Arts Center of the Ozarks.

The venue will host former Fayetteville songwriter and contestant on NBC’s The Voice Barrett Baber with his band along with country artist Chelsey James on Friday, Sept. 20.

The show is part of what the ACO is planning to turn into a new series called Main Street Music Nights on the Main Stage.

Baber was well known in NWA as a musician and teacher at Fayetteville High School, but broke out with national audiences when he was selected to appear as part of the cast of The Voice Season 9. The hometown hero finished in third place overall on The Voice, logging weekly top 10 iTunes performances and a #1 Billboard Music Charts single with his reinvented cover of the Country classic “I’d Just Love To Lay You Down.”

He released the single “Fight On” in April of 2018 and is currently working on a new recording project. He also announced he has signed on to write songs for Sony Music.

James was born and raised in Ozark, Missouri. Since then, she has performed with the likes ofBrett Young, Lindsay Ell, Dallas Smith, and the Randy Rogers Band, and is beginning to book summer dates on the heels of her debut new EP release.

Tickets to the show are $35, on sale now at There’s also a VIP meet and greet with Baber scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets for that experience are $25.
