CFCC nursing student opening for Kenny Chesney

A Cape Fear Community College nursing student will soon be making his big debut under the bright lights. Jason Marks is a local Wilmington musician who just landed the opening spot for Kenny Chesney's "Pirates and Poets" tour. Marks and his band were selected by a Raleigh radio station to open up for Chesney. Marks says juggling his music life and full time nursing school status is hard work. "I realize it's a big deal. Right now we have a big exam coming up on Tuesday morning, so up until we get there on Saturday afternoon I'll have my nose in a book. And then I'm sure the reality will set in, with more than 20,000 people there." Marks hopes this opportunity will help further his music career. He just released a CD titled "Slow-Down"
