HAMLET — Before performing at the Seaboard Festival on Saturday, Erik Hawks closed out the 2023 season for the Boxcar Concert Series.

Hawks, a Rockingham native, was backed Friday evening by the Hard Luck Band, performing several original tunes — including “Notebooks” and “Tracing Your Tattoos” — and a variety of country and classic rock covers.

Earlier this year, Hawks performed at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach as a nominee for Male Performer of the Year in the Carolina Country Music Awards.

He is nominated for three awards for the upcoming season: Male Artist of the Year; Songwriter of the Year; and Single of the Year for “End of My Rope.”

Now living in Fayetteville, Hawks still returns home to perform regularly as a solo acoustic act at Hudson Brothers Deli.

The band joined Hawks twice earlier in Richmond County this year, opening for Bucky Covington at Rockingham’s SpringFest and performing during Civil Wars at Rockingham Dragway.
