08/29/2013 – Randy Houser to Headline 2013 Riverfest

leave a comment »

logoDecatur, Ala. – Country artist Randy Houser will take center stage at the 2013 Riverfest, an annual two-day barbeque competition and music festival held on the banks of the Tennessee River in Decatur, Ala. Set for September 13-14 at Ingalls Harbor, the annual Riverfest brings together pitmasters from across the country who smoke it out as festival goers enjoy live music from local and national acts, friendly barbeque competition, and fun and games.

Hosted by the Decatur Jaycees, Riverfest is recognized by the State of Alabama as an official State Barbeque Championship competition and is sanctioned by, and conducted under, the rules of the Kansas City Barbeque Society. Competing for prize money and trophies totaling $20,000, the BBQ cook-off is open to professional and amateur teams, and children between the ages of 8 and 18 years old are invited to test their ribeye steak barbequing skills in the Kids Q.

Live music fires up Friday at 5 p.m. with a line-up including River City Junior Idol winner Ethan Thomas, country/folk singer-songwriter-guitarist Brent Cobb, country artist Josh Thompson whose debut album Way Out Here produced three Top 40 hits followed by headliner Randy Houser. Houser has received multiple nominations for ACM and CMA Awards, a #2 single in the form of “Boots On,” and songwriting credits for major names such as Trace Adkins, Justin Moore and Chris Young, but it’s his latest single, “Runnin’ Outta Moonlight” that will have the crowd on their feet. He takes the stage at 9:30 p.m. for a 1 1Ž2 hour performance.

The music continues Saturday at 4:30 p.m. with another performance by the River City Junior Idol winner Ethan Thomas. Awards for the barbeque competition will be presented at 5 p.m. with live music immediately following. Saturday evening’s lineup includes performances by Jessta James, Rollin’ in the Hay, and The Cadillac Three.

Along with the BBQ cook-off and music, there are food vendors offering barbeque from mild to fiery and other traditional festival food and a free children’s area. Weekend passes are $30 per person and includes admission for Friday and Saturday. Weekend passes must be purchased in advance at http://www.decaturjaycees.com, Decatur-Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau, or Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce. One-day tickets at the gate are $20 per person. North Alabama area Subway restaurants have partnered with Riverfest to offer discounted tickets to Saturday night. Special Buy 1 Get 1 Saturday Night-only tickets are available upon request at a local North Alabama Subway. Children younger than 10 years old are admitted for free.

08/23/2013 – LOCAL MARION COUNTY DRIVE-IN THEATRE SEEKS VOTES IN HONDA’S “PROJECT DRIVE-IN”

leave a comment »

Honda_Project_Drive-In_Logo_Bl_OgnGu-Win, AL. – 49 County News is committed to support an effort of The Blue Moon Drive-In Theatre located in Gu-Win, Alabama to keep its screens filled with movies you love. At the end of 2013, 35mm movie reels will no longer be available to theaters and only digital files will be distributed. There are currently 368 drive-ins in operation in the United States, and many of them have yet to convert to digital projection, including the Blue Moon Drive-In. Honda recently launched Project Drive-In and the Blue Moon Drive-In is hoping to be one of five drive-ins to receive a free digital projector.

Theaters that do not have a digital projector by the end of 2013 will no longer be able to show movies, thus forcing them to close unless they can spend approximately $75,000+ per screen to upgrade to digital projection. Honda wants to preserve this iconic part of American car culture and is helping drive-ins like the Blue Moon Drive-In by donating five digital projectors to be given away by Project Drive-In.

Drive-in movie fans and supporters can vote on which theaters to save. Project Drive-In will donate digital projectors to the top five vote receivers. Fansbadge_dark can vote for Blue Moon Drive-In Theatre once a day between now and September 9, 2013, at http://projectdrivein.com/vote_104. Votes can also be cast, one per day, by texting Vote104 to 444999.

Honda is also asking consumers to pledge to go see at least one movie at a local drive-in and then donate to the Project Drive-In fund to help those theaters survive economic hard times. To learn more about Project Drive-In, visit www.projectdrivein.com.

For more information on The Blue Moon Drive-In Theatre, call their movie line at 205-468-8046 or visit them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/bmdrivein
