Downtown Rising is gearing up for its September concert featuring Marc Broussard. Both Downtown Rising and Marc are celebrating milestone anniversaries. Downtown Rising commemorates five years of growth and development in the Downtown area. Marc is honoring 20 years since the release of his debut album, Carencro, named after the city in Lafayette Parish where he grew up.

Marc says the album Carencro really launched his music career. "I am blown away that it has been 20 years," says Marc. "The entire 2024 year has been dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the album, and we are playing the Carencro album from top to bottom."

"What's truly heartwarming is the number of fans returning to our shows who haven't been out for a while. They share stories like, 'We had our first date at one of your shows 15 years ago, we had kids, but now we are back out, and it's so wonderful to see you live again.' That's pretty special; I really cherish those moments," explains Marc, highlighting his emotional connection with his fans.

One of Marc’s favorite tracks from his forthcoming new studio album, to be released this fall, is Give You The World. The single has a soulful groove that showcases Marc’s vocals and heartfelt lyrics. 

He says, “The song is about giving everything you can and more to those who deserve something great. I can’t think of a better thing to give someone than a trip to my home state of Louisiana, where I was born and still reside.  I hope this trip giveaway will instill the giving spirit in others and encourage people to make someone’s day, even if the gesture is small.”

Marc wants fans from across the country to join him in celebrating 20 years of Carencro at Downtown Rising! Be on the lookout for videos dropping across social media on July 9 and 15 announcing a unique opportunity to win a trip to Lafayette, Louisiana. Win airfare, a two-night hotel stay, two tickets to Downtown Rising, and lunch with Marc when the giveaway goes live. It's a chance of a lifetime!
