Nashville country singer Lillie Syracuse performed at a benefit concert Saturday evening at the Sweetwater Municipal Auditorium.

All proceeds went toward auditorium improvements that are already in progress.

"This is definitely extremely exciting and a huge honor for me," Syracuse told KTXS. "I think that being a part of preserving something beautiful, as an auditorium that holds music and comedy entertainment, is great." 

Saturday was the first time Syracuse performed in the Big Country.
