Written by 

art hillbillywoodstockThe 5th Annual Hillbilly Woodstock will be held 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Aug 1-2 at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds.

The musical lineup is comprised of 20 artists, including Joe Lasher Jr., Andy Buckner, SmokeRise, the Ryan Perry Band, Neon Truckers, Pioneer Chicken Stand and headliner Kaitlyn Baker. 

Hillbilly Woodstock is a celebration of Appalachian culture. The event will feature working moonshine stills, arts and crafts, food and special celebrity guests, including Greg Shook from the TV series “Appalachian Outlaws” on the History Channel. There will also be several cast members of the Discovery Channel reality series “Moonshiners,” such as Mike “Mud Dog” Mitchell, Jim Tom Hedrick, Mark Rogers and Roy Grooms.

Other special guests will also include Shane McCoy and James Hatfield, descendants of the infamous, feuding Hatfields and McCoys, who will perform a lumberjack-themed program. There will also be a car and motorcycle show called Hillbilly Show ‘n Shine. Each of the first 25 Show ‘n Shine participants will receive a handcrafted copper model of a moonshine still.

Admission is $6 per day or $10 for both days. All ages admitted.

This Must Be the Place

    art theplaceI’m alone, again.

    As of last Tuesday, I am newly single. To be honest, I’m not happy about that fact. Not one bit. This was the relationship where I felt she was the “one,” a person I truly could see myself marrying and having a family with. That notion — a wife and kids — has been the furthest things from my mind for years.
