With Kingsport’s Fun Fest fast approaching, I wanted to let you all know more about what is going on there this summer. The event will be held from July 16-24, and they have a great concert line-up for us this year
Katharine McPhee will be the main performer on Friday, July 23, in a concert sponsored by Domtar and Eastman Credit Union. We first met Katharine when she was on American Idol – she finished that competition as runner-up to Taylor Hicks.
And Saturday, July 24… are you all ready for a little Zac Brown Band! The reigning ACM “Top New Vocal Group” Zac Brown Band is also nominated for “Album of the Year” for The Foundation, “Single Record of the Year” for “Toes,” and once again “Top Vocal Group.” Zac Brown of Zac Brown Band also received two additional individual nominations as the producer for both “Album of the Year” for The Foundation and “Single Record of the Year” for “Toes,” “Breakthrough Video of the Year” from CMT and USA Weekend – the Zac Brown Band is poised to bring their hit-single “Chicken Fried” to Kingsport.
I love the concerts at Fun Fest – but for anyone who has never been to the annual event, you really need to check out their web site and find out what else goes on there. There’s an Art Show, Block Parties, the Miss Kingsport Scholarship Pageant (a preliminary to Miss Tennessee). You’ve got the parade, a Healthy Seniors Fair , One-Pitch Softball Tournament, and so much more. Everyone who lives in this area, or is planning to be in town during Fun Fest will want to check out all the fun things to do.
You guys have a good Tuesday. Drop me an e-mail when you have a chance. Talk to you all soon!
