In the video below, the ridiculously talented couple behind Grand Rivers Variety (Bill and Sara Minihan) will tell you all about the wonderful shows coming up this year.
I’m especially excited about the “Legends.” There will be two new shows which pay tribute to a couple of music’s biggest legends… giants, actually: Johnny Cash and Hank Williams.The Johnny Cash tribute is called Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Musical Show. It’ll run during the months of March and April as well as the first few weeks of May.
I’m a HUGE fan of Johnny Cash (as well as June Carter Cash), so I’m really looking forward to this one. My husband and I will be at one of the first Ring of Fire shows – and we’re bringing friends!
As I was looking over the schedule, I nearly chocked on my coffee (…and, no, as a matter of fact I don’t drink coffee all the time. I have to sleep sometimes you know.). The third part of the Tuna Trilogy is coming to Grand Rivers. I’d try to tell you how much I enjoy the Tuna shows, but we’d be here seven and a half days. Since that’s even longer than it took God to create the world, I’ll just sum it up by saying this: I love myself some Tuna shows like my cat loves herself some tuna fish.
From Grand Rivers Variety: The much anticipated third installment in the Tuna trilogy takes the audience through another satirical ride into the hearts and minds of the polyester-clad citizens of Texas’ third smallest town. Along with Tuna’s perennial favorites, some new Tuna denizens burst into the 4th of July Tuna High School Class Reunion. This sets the stage for a show full of fireworks and fun!
From Joi: Booyah!
Red, White, and Tuna will run during July and August and y’all know I’ll be reminding you a million times between now and then. That’s how I roll. With a drift toward the obsessive.
Vacation, Eat, Stay, and Play in Kentucky This Year!
As I sit looking out the window beside my computer, I see patches of snow on the ground trying to hold on for dear life as the bright sun (and my willpower) tries to wipe it off the earth. The weather will soon be beautiful again – and, come on, there’s nothing quite like spring and summer in Kentucky. I can’t wait to start traveling around our beautiful state again, hitting different Kentucky State Parks, historical landmarks, museums, restaurants, Land Between the Lakes, stores, etc. You always meet the warmest and most colorful people when you travel around Kentucky. We all share a special bond: This is our home and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
I hope you’ll take advantage of Kentucky’s beautiful scenery, wildlife, and very special places this year. Grand Rivers Variety – and the entire Land Between the Lakes region – proves that you can have the time of your life without ever leaving home. You keep your money in the state and support your neighbors in the process.
Now, what part of that isn’t beautiful?
I’ll remind you frequently about the Grand Rivers Variety shows. I hope you’ll round up a group of family and friends and see as many shows as you possibly can. It would make an outstanding trip for a church group, or any group for that matter.
