I strongly suggest umbrellas and camp chairs and getting to Kingston Park a bit early. The Royal Hounds start their own brand of fireworks at 4:45 and then Johnny Neel goes off right after that. Temper Evans and Cereus Bright take us out to the big bang.

See you there.

Meet the artists and purchase CDs at the merch tent.

A word or two about Johnny Neel...

His songs have been recorded by some of the industries most popular artists such as Montgomery Gentry, John Mayall, and Delbert McClinton, along with Travis Tritt, Keith Whitley, Restless Heart, and the Oak Ridge Boys.

After moving to Nashville Johnny met up with another legend in the industry, Dickie Betts, one of the founding members of the Allman Brothers Band. After his huge success with Dickie Betts and the album “Pattern Disruptive” his talents were then greatly desired by none other than Gregg Allman who asked Johnny to join his road band. Johnny decided to join the reunited Allman Brothers Band and together with Gregg Allman and Dickie Betts they co-wrote “Good Clean Fun” which topped the charts and gave the band their highest rated single since “Ramblin' Man.” Johnny also co-wrote “Read Me My Rights” with Delbert McClinton.

...Johnny also provided vocals on several songs that were included in four Walt Disney Records CD's such as “Saturday Night Fish Fry” for the Finding Nemo: Ocean Favorites in 2003 and “My Old Car” from Lightning McQueen's Fast Tracks in 2006. He also sang on the 2007 Ratatouille What's Cooking? Album where his voice will forever be associated with “One Meat Ball” and “Banana Split for My Baby.” He said it was so much fun to sing these songs with a full orchestra and he was proud to be part of it.

With such a full career of sharing his amazing natural born talent he received the “Life Time Achievement Award” for his work with the Allman Brothers at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
