DELMAR, Md.- WBOC has been telling you about the new amphitheater set to be built in Delmar, Md. The project is officially moving forward. Although the actual structure is still a year or so from completion, the first big act is already booked and just a couple months away from hitting the stage.

Country sweetheart Kellie Pickler is set to perform August 25.

Pickler made her debut in 2005 on the American Idol stage. She has since gone on to sell hundreds of thousands of records and won several CMT awards.

"She's really cool, I really like her music a lot," said Kristin Boulden of Crisfield.

"I think it's great," added Salisbury resident Bonnie Adkins. "Coming into the 21st century, getting more things going on around here."

The amphitheater has not yet been built but project mastermind Doug Marshall is wasting no time getting started.

"Whereas you don't see a massive amount of dirt being moved, what you will see is a lot of chairs, a temporary structure," he explained.

At about 20 bucks a ticket, Marshall said the whole premise behind his plan is to pass the savings forward.

"We purchased the property at a very fair price and we, our mission at this project, will be to give back to the community," he said.

As for the price, "You can't beat that, not to see Kellie Pickler," said Kendall Wixon of Salisbury.

But for all the excitement, some still have worries. Earl Hudson, who lives right across the street from the project site is especially concerned about the extra traffic the amphitheater will bring in.

"Traffic's a big problem here," he said. "It's getting worse. I've seen it. I've seen it happen. It's getting worse all the time."

Marshall said he is taking any concerns into account.

According to Marshall, the site's intersection is designed for 3,000 trips per day and steps to minimize noise are also being taken.

Tickets will be available prior to the show, as well as on site at The Amphitheater at Heron Ponds the day of the show, which is Aug. 25.
