Wrestler brings musical talents to Maggie rally

Written by 

art mickiejamesProfessional wrestler and country singer Mickie James will perform at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14, at Thunder In The Smokies bike rally at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds. 

 

With “Somebody’s Gonna Pay,” her debut project for eOne Music Nashville, James has set out to carve a new path for herself. An entertainer and athlete since childhood, the TNA Impact professional wrestling star has spent the last decade as part of some of the biggest pro wrestling organizations in the world. But now she’s using a microphone to rev up concert crowds rather than run down wrestling opponents, taking on the music world full-force. The project showcases James’ high-energy style, something she’s honed not only in the ring, but also via recent performances, opening for the likes of Gretchen Wilson, Randy Houser and Montgomery Gentry. 

The rally runs Sept. 13-15. Weekend passes are $20 per person, which includes live music and other entertainment. Vendors will be on-site.
