The Mississippi Kid Festival

A good friend of mine (Momma Joy!) sent me this information and I wanted to pass it along. It's music for a cause.....Perfect combination! If you live Mississippi or the surrounding area, I hope you can attend. It is more than worth the cost of admission.....and though I am sworn to secrecy, I can admit, there are a few surprise guest in store!

Ean Evans, bass player for Lynyrd Skynyrd, is currently battling cancer. Ean has always helped people in need and now is a time for his fans to show their appreciation for all he has done. Close friends of Ean's have gotten together and are now hosting a concert in Ean's honor.

$10 is cheap cheap cheap. It is more than worth the price of admission.

WOW. I wish I lived close enough to see that....and it was any other weekend but next weekend. After opening for George Jones on the 17th and doing our high school prom on the 18th....I think I will crash and burn on the 19th. There is a huge concert in Auburn next weekend...AND 280 Boogie in Waverly...what a grand weekend for music. Happy Easter! K

Hi Leigh :)

That's a great cause and if I lived there I would go for sure.

I'm so sorry about not joining you on Thrifty Thursday. I meant to do it and then things got a little crazy around here and I forgot. I hope you'll forgive me.

Have a beautiful Easter!
hugs,
rue

38 Special? If it wasn't so far away I would come just for them alone.
