Book Signing: Sarah Kincaid

July 19 | Blackbird Bakery


Sarah E. Kincaid’s “Spring till September: Book One”(published by WestBow Press) is a coming-of-age story that examines how the events in one’s life brings a person from childhood to adulthood. Kincaid portrays how Caroline’s responses to love, loss, heartache and life changes affects the woman she will grow up to be. The novel is the first in a planned series.

“‘Spring till September” is not a basic romance,” Kincaid explains. “There is so much family and life included as well. There are also points of mystery, because as the story unfolds, so many details are vague and require you to dig deeper for answers to be revealed in the coming pages and subsequent volumes.”

Bike Night w/ Quarter Bounce and Rusty Steel

July 20 | O'Mainnin's Pub


Quarter Bounce hails from Southwest Virginia and Northeastern TN. The band is composed of serious and seasoned musicians who would rather perform than just about anything else. Tagged as a classic rock band, their music is a bit more diverse. Toss in a few ballads, a few country & western tunes, and the mix equals a good dance band. Just like the name implies, Quarter Bounce is about having fun, good times and forgetting about your worries for awhile.

Dean Dillon

July 20 | Paramount Center for the Arts


Dean Dillon was born on March 26, 1955, in Lake City, TN and started playing guitar at the age of 7. At the age of 15 he appeared in a local Knoxville, TN Variety Show called JIM CLAYTON’S STARTIME as a songwriter and performer; by the end of high school, Dean Dillon had his mind set on Nashville.

After hitchhiking to Music City in the early 70’s, it wasn’t long before he caught the watchful eye of Shelby Singleton of SUN RECORDS. After a short recording stint that produced one record, Dean was once again walking the streets of a town he barely knew. In 1976 Dillon landed the role of Hank Williams in Opryland’s Country Music Show, USA. The theme park gig indirectly helped Dillon secure his first publishing deal with Nashville producer, publisher Tom Collins. Three weeks later Barbara Mandrell recorded three of Dillon’s songs. In 1979 Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius had a number 1 hit with Dillon’s “Lying Here In Love with You” a song he co-wrote with fellow tunesmith Gary Harrison of “Strawberry Wine” fame. It was both writers first number 1 hit record.

Although it was writing songs for others where Dillon’s future lay, the young singer was hell bent on making it as a recording artist. Between 1979 and 1981 Dillon released 12 singles for RCA Records. Three of the songs reached the Top 30 on the country charts, including “Nobody in His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her,” which climbed all the way to number 25 (and later became a number 1 hit for George Strait). Between1979 and 1983, as an artist Dillon charted eight times and broke the Top 30 with “I’m into the Bottle (To Get You out of My Mind).” He also wrote hits for other country stars like the 1983 George Jones number 1 hit “Tennessee Whiskey”. These successes established Dillon as a performer and as a songwriter. It wasn’t long until Dillon was paired by RCA Record head, Jerry Bradley, with Gary Stewart, the “King of the Honky Tonkers.” The vices of the two men fed off of each other and while their two bleary, good-timing albums were successful and looked like hard-living prototypes to Brooks & Dunn, (especially 1982’s Brotherly Love), the partnership had little use for the straight and narrow. After “Those were the Days”, Dillon took a five year hiatus from recording, cleaned up his personal life and concentrated on songwriting. He wrote or co-wrote a number of hits during this period and had considerable success with George Strait, who took five of his songs to the charts between 1981 & 1988. The exposure landed Dillon a new contract with CAPITOL RECORDS, who released two Ricky Scruggs produced albums, Slick Nickel and I’ve Learned to Live. The later featured a Tanya Tucker duet “Don’t You Even Think About Leaving.” Dillon next signed with ATLANTIC, where he issued his most successful album. It was 1991’s Out of Your Mind which referenced the hard country of Dillon’s heroes, but it also flirted with pop. The LP was lauded as a throwback, an answer to Nashville’s penchant for vapidity.

In 2002, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame (along with Bob Dylan and Shel Silverstein). Early the following year Dillon signed a songwriting contract with Sony/A TV Tree, which came after his fifteen year relationship with Rose Acuff, a publishing company Sony acquired in July 2002.

Dean Dillon’s songwriting has thrived. He has recently written songs for famous faces like Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith and Lee Ann Womack. His association with George Strait over the years has brought him to an ICON STATUS in country music. It’s the relationship with Strait that has, to a large extent, defined both of their careers. And in a genre built on great songwriters writing for great singers, there has never been another team like it. Dillon has composed or co-written 55 songs for Strait, including 19 singles, 11 which went to number 1. Even in a career like Strait’s, the Dillon titles stand out: “Marina del Rey”, “The Chair”, “I’ve Come to Expect it From You”, “Easy Come, Easy Go”, “She Let Herself Go”, and “The Best Day.” His songs all pair instantly catchy melodies with gutbucket country lyrics, signature qualities of a Dillon composition that would also become hallmarks of Strait’s own style and sound.

As producer Tony Brown explained “they are the elements that allow Strait to sound traditional without sounding old-timey.

At his ranch home in Gunnison, Colorado, Dean Dillon’s walls display an array of timely photographs and awards consisting of: 1985 Billboard Country Music Artist Of The Year Award; 1986 Nashville Song Writers Award; 1995, 1996, 1998 CMA TRIPLE PLAY AWARD ; Three Time Grammy Nominee; Lee Iacocca Award (American Automotive Division); Twenty Six (26) Number 1 Records Award; and the coveted 2013 BMI Icon Award.

Sulphur Springs String Dippers

July 21 | Bristol Station Brews & Taproom


About Sulphur Springs String Dippers

"Drop a needle on the Sulphur Springs String Dippers. As if from the grave or a scratchy 78, shades of Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers emerge like ghosts from the 1920s.

Remarkable. Step into eras long past when Johnson City’s Sulphur Springs String Dippers light ‘em up at Kingsport’s Sleepy Owl Brewery on Feb. 3. Taut as a straight-backed chair, the String Dippers’ repertoire smacks of musicians well-ensconced in roots laced with flair.

Alex Ball, Ryan Bernard, and Cam Ragsdale formed the trio with the tongue-twisting name last year. With an eye on Appalachia, visions of unpaved mountain roads and backwoods vistas unfurl as their fiddle and guitar saw away with back porch precision. They play “Lee Highway Blues” with aplomb. “Richmond Blues” strikes like a dusty chapter from a dog-eared history book. No novelty about it, the Sulphur Strings String Dippers brand as musicians of considerable note."-Tom Netherland, Bristol Herald-Courier

Border Bash: Annabelle's Curse

July 21 | Downtown Bristol


Annabelle’s Curse is a five-piece alternative folk band hailing from Bristol TN/VA, and sort of like the town where they were born, their music sits on the border between two places. One place finds them unplugged, on a large front porch, reveling in the old folk songs that they were raised on while their nearest and dearest friends and family drink and sing along. The other place is plugged in, awash in neon lights and drunk on the rock and roll spirit that drives them to leave the porch, pile in a van, and play long into the night while the anonymous drinkers dance. Their music feels like these two different places at the same time, but like the city that they call home, it’s just two sides of one place and one sound – a sound that they can truly call their own.

The Grand Ole Uproar

July 21 | O'Mainnin's Pub

Cale, as well as many other(and older) songs and artists in the American tradition.

The Grand Ole Uproar frequently tours the Southeast and Midwest, appearing recently on Knoxville TN's Blue Plate Special Radio Program on WDVX and Balcony TV Nashville.

The Birthplace of Country Music Museum will be hosting the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service's exhibit "Things Come Apart" from July 15 to October 8, 2017.

As a visual investigation of design and engineering, "Things Come Apart" also celebrates classic examples of industrial design like the sewing machine, the mechanical pencil, and the telescope. Additionally, the exhibit explores ideas about reuse, repair, and recycling.

The exhibit embraces key STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) concepts and provides an ideal environment for hands-on experimentation, tinkering, and creative makerspaces.
