If you’re a country music/food junkie like me, there was no better place to be last Saturday than the Diet Pepsi Got to Be NC Ag Jam. We got to celebrate N.C. agriculture and growers to the tunes of Southern rockers Blackberry Smoke, Jamey Johnson, Heartland, Jake Owen, Eric Church, Tracy Byrd and (whew!) Blake Shelton. Check out the sights, sounds and smells from the top-notch event and keep your ear to the ground for info on next year’s Got to Be NC Ag Jam.
Listen to country artist Jamey Johnson cover an old Waylon Jennings song “The Door is Always Open” off his awesome new CD, That Lonesome Song. (Disclaimer: I am a HUGE fan and admittedly/embarrassingly considered throwing myself in front of his golf cart when he passed by our press booth to the WQDR Party Deck for an interview. Sigh.)
Representatives from the green industry and brought along pumpkins for carving. I don’t know about you, but I’ve already picked out what I’ll be carving on my pumpkin this year.
Bet you’ve never had an omelette (made with tasty N.C. eggs, of course) at a concert before, have you?
Headliner Blake Shelton came in tow with a great set and Walnut Creek went crazy as he rose up through the floor of the stage. He even threw in a Conway Twitty cover too.
