As promised to my readers Here’s more information on the Muddy Roots Spring Weekender in Nashville Indiana.
FIRST OFF IT’S NO RUMOR there is ONLY 500 tickets available to this event and you can get them on my last article
that covered the headliner Dr.Ralph Stanley. THIS article will cover another GREAT reason to come to the Spring Weekender Jayke Orvis.
The Broken Band…sadly…doesn’t get any coverage from media outlets and THAT’S WHY I started this website!
They WILL get positive attention from us and they have been added to this event. YOU MUST GO and see his fine
musicianship and band, I myself think Liz Sloan is one of underground music’s finest fiddle players and her
stage presence is AWESOME!

OK Now, for those of you that know me personally you know I’m not physically able to camp for two days
and I AM an avid outdoors sportsman but I have many health issues and I’ll need a hotel room.
SO just for them fine folks at Muddy Roots I been digging into a report for ALL OF YOU, here’s some
nearby area hotels you can check into while enjoying all the fine music and friends.
I want to add that I stayed at La Quinta Inn at Cookeville for the Muddy Roots 2013 festival
and I was WELL taken care of,I had a WONDERFULL time.

La Qunita Inn of Columbus Indiana will be one of my first choices. They have GREAT
Wi-fi and breakfast was REALLY good.And the pool and hot tub were above nice.
And TRUST ME with a severe case of RA like me…a hot tub is GOOD. Starting at 92 and up,they are 10.4 miles away.

Days Inn of Columbus Indiana is another great hotel chain I have used for hunting and fishing in the past in several states. Starting at 59 and up they are 10.3 miles away from the campgrounds.

Motel 6 of Columbus Indiana is another chain of hotels that are only 10.4 miles from the campground but I have never
stayed with them before.I cannot report on their hospitality but they have reasonable rates at 44 dollars and up.

Abe Martin Lodge is located IN THE PARK AREA and is only 5 miles from the campgrounds and starts at 59 dollars and up.
I have heard GREAT things about this lodge and I will check it out for future use for my personal enjoyment.

Ok now I plan to bring up my boat to the Spring Weekender and I want to fish a nearby lake the day before the music starts. How do you buy a license to fish Indiana? Well…I go THAT covered too!
I bet NO OTHER media outlet will answer ALL THESE questions for festival goers like me.
The Indiana DNR is where you can
purchase and print out a one day or three day license from the Dept.Of Natural Resources.

So there you have it my dear readers, I hope you enjoy this blessed time being put together by Jason Galaz and
Muddy Roots. I’ll be there reporting on all the bands and I may set up a few sit downs with some of the bands.
But I’ll be there buying merch and hanging out with friends and enjoying everyone.
Come say Hi to me!

Here’s a WHOLE MAP of the Spring Weekender AND ALSO Mr. Jason has announced there MAY BE a fan-performer
family style dinner..catered. I will update again with more information on this!

Mr.Clay and Miss Barbie Campbell and the fine folks at the Kentucky Opry have so many wonderfull guests and shows for us to enjoy in the Paducah Kentucky area. They never cease to amaze me at the talent they bring whether it’s the SOLD OUT september annual Gene Watson show or this gal Jennifer Brantley. Jennifer has been making waves in the Nashville
area for some time now with a beautifull song written by Glenn Douglass Tubb and Hank Williams.
And on October 5th her and James Hand will be visiting the Kentucky Opry.

YEP You heard me correct I said Hank Williams! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN YOU ASK?
Well….Hank had half written a lot of songs and they were all placed in archives and declared “unknown property”
for many years and many legal battles. And Audrey Williams apparently allowed Glenn Douglass Tubb to have
one of those songs and he finished it, and Miss Jennifer cut it.
I had the CD sent to me a while back and honestly I STILL enjoy it very much. I think she did the song REAL
justice! Iv’e always LOVED the steel guitar work on this.

I cannot always get every weekend off as my “real job” demands alot of my overtime but if I’m off
I’ll defiantly be in attandance there for her appearance!
