I’d like to start this article by giving a great big shout out to all the nice people I met at the Haywood County Fair Saturday evening! The staff at the fair were all wonderful people – friendly, and very helpful. The fans who were at Luke’s show were really super people, and everyone had a fantastic time!
This is a small country fair, with a few amusement rides, very nice livestock barns, and a lot of great exhibits. The buildings were fun to go through, and everyone was obviously having a very good time. And, of course there was "fair food" – barbecue, funnel cakes, kettle corn – it was all right there. I’d never visited this fair before, but I’m glad I was able to get there this year.
Allie McPherson, from Illinois, was visiting the fair with her parents, Doug and Christy. And, little Allie was lifted up on stage with Luke, who danced with her. I’ve noticed a lot of country singers bringing children up on stage with them lately, and I could tell this one really enjoyed being there with Luke.
Before I put up a few more pictures from Luke’s show, I wanted to tell you about Dana Penland. He is from North Carolina, and a huge country music fan. Dana has a t-shirt from 94.7 QDR radio, which he has had autographed by more than 25 country singers – On Saturday night, he added Luke to the shirt. And, the list is still growing. He will be seeing Eric Durrance, Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean early in October, and hopes to add their signatures to the shirt as well.
And one more quick hello – this one to the folks at PEAK Radio in Canton, N.C. Now, click on "Read the rest of this entry" below … to see more pictures from Luke’s concert.
I have a lot more pictures of Luke’s great show tonight, and will try to get them up in a gallery on MySpace very soon (myspace.com/countrychatter). To all of you I met at the Haywood County Fair, it was my pleasure! I hope you will all take a minute and drop me a line… Let me know what you think of Country’s Chatter – and check back often for the latest news on your favorite country music entertainers.
