This year’s Bloomin’ BBQ & Bluegrass is full of exciting new things – like the Sound Biscuit Productions stage! There you’ll hear great new music from local artists, rock out to the Mountain Soul Vocal Competition honoring the songwriting of Dolly Parton, and even see live music videos being taped. Get your tickets early for the KaTom People’s Choice Contest (only $10 ea.) to sample and vote for your favorite pulled pork from the Bush’s Best Tennessee State Championship Cook Off. (Call 865-453-6411 to purchase your tickets). Of course, there will be plenty of event favorites back this year. Catch great regional entertainment on the Hard Rock Café Community Stage, located inside the Eating Tent, and tap your toes to great bluegrass artists – including Lonesome River Band and Steep Canyon Rangers – in completely free concerts.
