Ben Rector will open the much-anticipated NEEDTOBREATHE concert on April 28 at 8 p.m. in Gardner-Webb University’s Paul Porter Arena. Rector, a pop musician from Nashville, Tenn., won the grand prize in the pop category of the 2006 John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song “Conversation.” He is the youngest person ever to win the award. In 2011, “Something Like This,” his fourth and most critically acclaimed album, landed at #41 on the Billboard 200, his highest-charting project.
