The Festival’s 40th Anniversary

Hank’s hometown of Georgiana has been celebrating their legendary country music star for 40 years now, and this year’s festival promises to continue the town’s musical heritage with two days filled with live entertainment. A long list of artists has been booked to play in the park right by Hank’s old home, and talents include Jett Williams, Colin Leatherwood, New Vision, and the uncanny sound and resemblance of Jason Petty.

The first night concludes with the Grammy-nominated Confederate Railroad, who has produced a number of hits since forming in the early ‘90s. Saturday’s full day of live music finishes strong with the dynamic Tony Jackson. The former Marine, ex-IT professional first encountered country music on the radio while living with his father stationed in Spain. His lifelong fascination became an accelerating career, with a solo single scoring high on the charts.

You can also expect to find arts and crafts on display, plus food and refreshments. What country music festival would be complete without some barbecue?
