We Won!!!!  

WOW!!! It is still setting in for the band. We went to a place that had never heard us before, got on stage and the people loved the sound! That may not sound like much to you, but for us five hillbillies it was exciting. The folks at the Blazin Bluegrass festival have a top notch venue, world class bands, and the people can't be beat. Never in a million years would I have thought we could have won this thing. We are blessed and proud to be the 2016 Blazin Bluegrass Festival Contest winner. We will be going back down in September for the big festival. You all need to make plans to attend. The festival is great, the scenery is breath taking, and the feeling of God's nature is all around the area. We would like to thank the staff of the Blazin Bluegrass Festival, they are some of the best in the  business to work for. A huge thank you to those that have been with us for the last 8 years making the miles worth it all. It would be a crime if we didn't thank our families who sacrifice time at home so that we can go and play music. The birthdays, gatherings and functions we miss are many to make the music we love. It is a joyful burden to do this and the fact that we still have people to come home to makes it even better. Just wanted to send this blog out and hope you enjoy the shows to come. This weekend is the Mountaineer Opry on Saturday night, and McArthur United Methodist church Sunday morning. Come catch us this weekend!
