Pollstar is reporting that Trent Tomlinson will be at the Washington County Fair in Abingdon, Va on Sept. 11. Trent was at the Gray fair in 2006 and 2007, and put on a great show both times. I’m already making plans to go to Abingdon in September.
The first Kingsport Funfest concert I’ve heard about is July 19, and that will be Little Big Town. That concert was also announced on Pollstar.
Dolly Parton will open her theme park, Dollywood, on March 21, and this will be the longest season for her park. In the past, the park has opened the first weekend in April. I took this photo at Dolly’s media day in 2005.
In addition to an appearance or two by Dolly, the park plays host to many of today’s top country entertainers. We’ll keep you posted as to who will be there throughout the Spring and Summer season.
I’ve had some photos scanned and put on CD, so I’ll be able to include more in future postings. Keep writing, and keep checking my chatter blog. It’s been fun! More later!
