Spring is here, so its time to plane for the Spring Planting Festival, join us to go back in time!

Monday, March 20th, 2017

When: April 22, 2017
Where: Big South Fork NRRA (Bandy Creek Visitors Center)
Time: 9 a.m. EDT

The early settlers in the Big South Fork country relied on subsistence farming for survival. Each spring, the mules and horses were hooked to the plow and the fields tilled for the planting of crops. It was hard work but a fascinating way of life. The tradition continues today, with many families in the area growing large gardens…with improved equipment, of course.

Step back in time in the Big South Fork this spring by visiting the Lora Blevins homeplace (near the Bandy Creek Visitors Center). The day-long festival features plenty of events and is free to the public. Food is available from vendors, or you can bring your lunch.

Events at the festival include:

• Draft horse and mule-drawn plowing demonstrations
• Gardening, herb lore, wood working, blacksmithing, basket-weaving, hand-spinning and the making of lye soap
• Craft demonstrations and sales
• Farm petting zoo for children
• Antique farm and tractor equipment display

The event starts at 9 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m.

Lee Brice is Coming to Oneida, Tn!

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 10.09.48 AMHUNTSVILLE, Tenn. — Country music heartthrob Lee Brice will headline the 2017 White Knuckle Event, it was announced late Tuesday.

Brimstone announced on its Facebook page Tuesday that Brice will be the featured performer at the weekend-long event, which is held each Memorial Day weekend. Brice will take the Yamaha stage on Saturday, May 27.

One of the hottest acts in country music, Brice has seen his last seven singles reach the Top 10 on the country charts, dating back to 2011. Four of those singles went all the way to No. 1.

A noted songwriter in Nashville, Brice has been performing for a decade, and has never failed to chart a single. He gained notoriety with “Love Like Crazy,” which went to No. 3 on the charts in 2009.

In 2011, Brice began his string of success, when “A Woman Like You” became his first No. 1 hit. He had two more No. 1 songs the following year, “Hard to Love” and “I Drive Your Truck.”

After “Parking Lot Party” peaked at No. 6 on the charts in 2013, Brice topped the charts again in 2014 with “I Don’t Dance.” That same year, his “Drinking Class” peaked at No. 2 on the charts.

Brice’s most recent single, “That Don’t Sound Like You,” peaked at No. 10 in 2015.

Brice has released three studio albums, including 2012′s Hard 2 Love, which was certified gold. His latest album, I Don’t Dance in 2014, reached No. 1 on the U.S. country charts and sold nearly 250,000 copies.

The 37-year-old South Carolina native has also had songs recorded by Garth Brooks (“More Than a Memory”), Blake Shelton (“You’ll Always Be Beautiful”), Kenny Chesney (“Seven Days”), the Eli Young Band (“Crazy Girl” and “I Love You”) and many more.

White Knuckle Event is billed as the Woodstock of ATV events, and is one of the nation’s premier festivals for off-road enthusiasts. It is centered around the Vanderpool Event Area on River Road in Huntsville, and Brimstone’s 20,000 acres of trails and resort lands are open for riders during the event. Tickets will go on sale soon at www.whiteknuckleevent.com.
