In honor of the Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival AND Father's Day, there will be a great Car Show as just one of the many things you can do.

If you live in North Carolina, South Carolina, Kansas City, or Texas, you don't HAVE to like barbecue.  But, if you don't people are likely to ask - just curious, ya know - 'What the heck's wrong with you?!' And if you live in Western North or South Carolina and you've never been to the Blue Ridge BBQ and Music Festival - like maybe you live in a cave or you've just moved here - you have GOT TO GO...This Year...This Friday and Saturday!

Jason Isbell

Jason Isbell, formerly with his band The 400 Unit and the Drive-By Truckers before that, has a new solo release that is more intimate and emotionally revealing than his previous works.  Released on Tuesday the 11th, it captures the 34-year-old's head and heart during a time of significant transitions, including his recent marriage to fiddler/singer Amanda Shires.  Says Isbell, "If you’re honest enough with your audience over the years, you’ll see that the audience feels very similar to you.
