More than 30 local musicians and performers took part in the Tina-Avalon Country Music Show.
The gym at Tina-Avalon School was filled with country music and eager crowds last weekend.
During the 36th annual Country Music Show crowds were wowed by more than 30 performances from local musicians and bands.
“We had several strong vocal performances this year and the crowd responded as such.New to the the show this year, Lyndsie Turner displayed her powerful voice and range as she sang the first part of “Blue Moon of Kentucky” a capella to the audience's delight,” Suzanne Stark, event organizer said. “Courtney Pilcher wowed the audience with “Broken Wing.” Will Block, singing “On a Good Night,” put a bluesy a capella ending that brought shouts and clapping from the audience. These were just a few of the strong vocals. There were certainly others as well!”
While the crowd at the Friday night show was bigger, Stark said there was still a good turnout both nights.
“On Friday night, we had about 450-500 people, and donations were $2366,” she said. We also had a good turnout Saturday and donations were $1914.”
In total, the show brought in $4280, through eh goodwill donation entrance fee. All funds raised go to scholarships and other needs at the school and for the schools music program.
DVD's of Friday night's show is available, by calling Rene Trussell at the school at 660-622-4211 to place an order.
Private First Class Audrey Smith surprised her parents Billy and Lachrissa Smith by leading the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance. Smith’s parents had no idea she was in town, much less attending the Country Music Show. Billy was the bass player in the band.
“It was a really neat thing to see her surprise them,” Stark said.
