On June 10, “A Night with Legends,” a benefit concert for The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, comes to the Wildhorse Saloon. Newly inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, The Oak Ridge Boys have also recently released an awesome first ever live album. I am not totally sure about whether they will all perform short sets or big huge sets.

A show with this many Country Music Legends for a benefit is usually not to be missed if you can make it. The Wildhorse seats many people and the seating chart goes from 20-120 dollars. And honestly in my area Mickey Gilley is not performing as frequent as the others on the performance list.

You can purchase tickets HERE.

Hello again folks from the 2015 festival series that I have run on this site for two years now, holy man what a truly wonderful spring of festivals that have occurred in my area. I covered one fully and one partly and I have quite a few more planned in 2015. Now in 2016 I plan to expand my website coverage into more of these festivals I haven’t been to yet and I shall be sponsoring more of them.

I have a whole new list for the middle of 2015 and into the fall and as they contacted me and I planned this series I had them all mapped out according to time they occurred and I’m doing this in two parts. Welcome to part two as I begin it with the 20th Annual Goose On the Lake which happens on June 5th and 6th in Allerge Kentucky. This festival is relatively close to my house and easy for me to get to however I have only been there for a short time and I have never fully covered the festival.

Friday, June 5
5:00 PM – Kentucky Harvest
6:00 PM – The Dirty Dandelions
7:30 PM – Marty Brown
9:15 PM – New old Cavalry
Saturday, June 6
3:30 PM – Big Nancy
4:30 PM – Benny Skyn
5:30 PM – Frank Hudson
6:30 PM – Harvey Cameron Band
8:00 PM – Raelyn Nelson Band
9:30 PM – Vessel

As we all know this festival was begun in 1995 by Lloyd Settle and his friends and was supposed to be a one time event attended by about 75 people and it featured the band Goose Creek Symphony. And now 20 years later here we have this wonderful event that has been brought out to the limelight more by the live recording of Waymore’s Outlaws from this event.

This is one of the more reasonably priced festivals boasting only a 60 dollar pass fee and you can purchase them HERE. And on this article I’ll be adding some hotel locations for the Russellville area, which is very close to my own home.
