Parmalee, Montgomery ready to rock the Turkey Trot


Parmalee's music has been described by Matt as being," the country side of rock and Jason's Aldean's music is the rocking side of country."

Members of the band all agree that current country music found them. "We were always influenced by the country music around us," said Scott. "And having people like Jason (Aldean) and Eric (Church) come into play has really helped us out."

The group,which is currently working on its first album due out later this year on Stoney Creek Records, has been playing a festivals, fairs and other venues throughout the summer.

"Festivals are always fun because you get to play for all new people," said Matt.

John Michael Montgomery on Saturday

Veteran performer John Micheal Montgomery will take the stage Saturday at 8:15 p.m. Montgomery, whose career has spanned nearly two decades, has put several songs at the top of the charts in the last twenty years including "Life's A Dance","I Swear", "Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident", "Be My Baby Tonight" and more recently "Letters From Home" a touching tune about soldiers overseas and their families.

Montgomery, whose brother is Eddie Montgomery of the duo Montgomery Gentry, has been honored with sever Country Music Association (CMA) awards as well as an ACM award for top new vocalist and a Grammy nomination.

His music, which varies from tender love songs to upbeat tunes like "Sold" , has helped Montgomery relate to his fan base.

"You get to know your fans and what they like more and more through the years and you kind of gravitate to towards one another," Montgomery said in a press release.
