The artist lineup will pay tribute to Shepard, who passed away on September 23, by showcasing some of her greatest hits.
Jean Shepard made her first appearance in country music in 1953 with the duet “A Dear John Letter.” She followed that success with her hit songs “A Satisfied Mind” and “Take Possession.” In 1956, she was invited to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Sixty years later, she was still touring and gracing the Grand Ole Opry stage to spread the power of country music. In the couple of years before her passing, Jean was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and released her autobiography Down Through the Years.
“She’s one of those people who opened doors,” Opry announcer and WSM DJ Eddie Stubbs said in late 2015. “There were some she had to push open and some others she had to kick her way through.”
About Springer Mountain Farms®
Springer Mountain Farms® is a family owned business that has been raising chickens for over 40 years. Years ago in the hills of Northeast Georgia, our founders started selling chickens in the back room of their grocery store. They built the company on strong values and kindred relationships within the farming community, and all of the farmers, with up to forty years of experience and third generation families, take great pride in what they do to raise the finest chicken on the market today. Over the years, through studying and learning about the benefits of better animal care, better living conditions, and more stringent biosecurity practices, Springer Mountain Farms® became the first poultry producer in the world to gain the endorsement of American Humane Association under their American Humane Certified program. We exercise great care in all that we do, and we know you’ll be able to taste the difference. “Great Care. Great Taste.”
