Taylor in Charlotte, Obama in Fayetteville on Sunday

A music legend will appear in Charlotte on Sunday, the Barack Obama campaign announced Wednesday afternoon.

James Taylor, a Chapel Hill native, will hold five concerts in North Carolina – Charlotte and Asheville on Sunday, Chapel Hill on Monday, and Raleigh and Wilmington on Tuesday. Details weren't yet available.

Past campaign concerts for the campaign have also been used as database builders, with concert attendees leaving their names and contact info for the Obama campaign.

Obama also plans to be in the state this weekend, at a rally Sunday in the Fayetteville area.

It will be his sixth trip to North Carolina as the Democratic presidential nominee.
