Thursday, March 23


Artist, Audience & Community Live! is thrilled to present Fort Smith’s own rising star, JD Clayton!

After honing his style in Nashville, JD Clayton has been busy taking his intimate and impactful songs to audiences all over the country.  

“This has already been such a journey,” Clayton reflects. “I can’t wait to see what’s around the bend.”

Join us on Thursday, March 23rd, as we honor one of our own in the intimate venue at 5 Star Productions.


After a two-year intermission, AACLive! is thrilled to be back for our 21st season of world-class live music and entertainment in the Arkansas River Valley.  AACLive! is a 501 (c)(3) organization and we would welcome tax deductible contributions in any amount to replenish our coffers. We are also looking for sponsors to offset rising artists fees.  If you would like to help fund an event or community outreach, please reach out one of our board members. Your consideration is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you soon!

As reflected in our name, our mission is to serve Artist, Audience and Community. Artists love to appear in theaters where their needs have been anticipated and met. We serve Audiences by presenting an eclectic mix of music from nationally and internationally recognized artists. We serve the Community by sharing this talent beyond the stage at our theater and through educational and outreach programs. These venues might include public schools, boys and girls clubs, or assisted care facilities. This niche is a vital link in the development of an overall creative economy in the region by providing the type of arts and entertainment options that are typically found only in larger metropolitan areas. To meet these goals we need sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please let us know.
