Diamond Resorts®, a global leader in the hospitality, vacation ownership and entertainment industries, is thrilled to announce a three-night line-up of private concerts at the upcoming Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions™ Presented by Insurance Office of America. Some of the nation's most beloved performers including Counting Crows, Boyz II Men, Sister Hazel, Colt Ford, Easton Corbin and Jake Owen will perform as part of the tournament festivities in nightly private concerts during the week, which kicks off the LPGA Tour in January. Since 2014, the tournament has raised more than $3.5 million for charity.

The tournament will bring together top professional women golfers to play side-by-side with celebrities including NBA champion Ray Allen; Super Bowl XVIII MVP Marcus Allen; MLB Hall of Famer John Smoltz; MLB Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez; Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Urlacher; NHL All Star Jeremy Roenick; celebrity chef Bobby Flay, TV personality Ben Higgins and many more.

The festivities will start on January 14 with a concert featuring chart-topping country star Colt Ford opening for the iconic group Boyz II Men. From #1 hits to having a residency in Las Vegas since 2013, these guys do not slow down. Their friendship with Colt Ford formed back in 2012 when Wanya Morris collaborated with him on his album, "Declaration Of Independence." Colt Ford has over a billion streams and this evening is expected to be one for the ages.  

On January 16, another concert event will take place with two of the most popular bands from the 1990s, Counting Crows and Sister Hazel, taking the stage. The Tournament of Champions entertainment line-up will conclude with a final concert on January 18 featuring Easton Corbin and country star Jake Owen, who was nominated for 2019 Single of the Year at the ACM Awards for "Down to the Honkytonk."

"The Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions is the 'party on tour' because nowhere else can you see your favorite bands perform at night after watching celebrities compete alongside top female golfers during the day," said Mike Flaskey, CEO of Diamond Resorts and founder of the tournament. "This year's tournament is bigger than ever and will provide a jam-packed week of unforgettable entertainment."

The Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions will be held January 16-19, 2020, at Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando. Tickets to the nationally-televised tournament and concerts are available at DiamondLPGA.com.
