This sounds like a great event for country music fans, and race fans. I’m sure the concerts will be great, and anyone who has ever attended a NASCAR event like Bristol Family Race Night (in Bristol, Tenn.) knows how much fun it is to get close to your favorite driver.

JMC and Trace Adkins 059 (1) That’s all for this time. I’ll talk to you all soon. Right now, I’m going to try to get my e-mail caught up, I know I owe a lot of you an answer! Write when you can. I love your letters!
