My Two Cents: Glen Campbell

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I remember the first time I heard “Wichita Lineman” by Glen Campbell.  I had been smothered in the Beatles, when all of a sudden there was this catchy tune by some country artist playing on the radio.  At just over two minutes long, I thought I could listen to it over and over and over again.  What a great song!  I mean, who writes a song about an electrical lineman? 

Glen Campbell passed away August 8th, 2017 at age 81.

Chris Janson Leads a Youth Movement at the Grand Ole Opry

 

Grand Ole OpryNashville, TN – On Friday January 6th, 2017, Chris Janson headlined a Grand Ole Opry concert that featured both young and senior musicians. It was a bitter cold, snowy night in Nashville, Tennessee but that did not stop an almost capacity crowd from going to the Opry at the legendary Ryman Auditorium.

The Grand Ole Opry has a strong tradition of introducing up-and-coming artists on their famous radio show and stage. The Opry’s four sets are a combination of well-established Opry members and next wave artists who are hoping to join that exclusive circle. Many of the newcomers commented on how they grew up listening to the now longest-running radio program and mentioning that it’s a dream come true to play at the Opry.

Chris Janson is holding up well as a headliner in the New Year.

Clarksville Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN –The Rivers and Spires Festival announces its headline entertainment for the 2017 festival, April 20th-22nd in downtown Clarksville.

Award-winning country duo Montgomery Gentry will perform on the Public Square Stage on Saturday, April 22nd at 8:30pm.

From “Hillbilly Shoes” to “Headlights,” Montgomery Gentry has become one of the most identifiable duos in the history of country music—as much for their outlaw-meets-gentleman sensibilities, their yin and yang personalities and their intensely energetic live performances as that balance of voices that gives their brand of country an edge or their version of Southern rock a softer place to fall.

Clarksville’s Riverfest announces Brandy Clark as headliner for 2016 Festival

 

Clarksville's Riverfest CelebrationClarksville, TN – Riverfest, presented by the City of Clarksville and Miller Lite, is pleased to announce Brandy Clark will be the featured headliner at the 2016 Festival. Brandy Clark will take the main stage as the headlining event on Saturday, September 10th, 2016 at 9:00pm. The concert is free and open to the public.

For Brandy Clark, the dream she harbored in her small hometown of Morton, Washington, was to be a country singer. Sure, once she moved to Nashville, she had successful cuts as a songwriter [The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two,” Miranda Lambert’s “Mama’s Broken Heart,” and Kacey Musgraves’ “Follow Your Arrow”], but being an artist in her own right was a dream she had stopped dreaming until two years ago when her first album, the stunning 12 Stories, debuted.
