Today, I played a show with Ride the Song at a venue called Musselman’s Grove. It was incredibly hot but completely worth it. This venue had been host to a comprehensive list of country music legends. They claim that Hank Williams and the Carter Family played on their stage. I saw photos of Grandpa Jones and Minnie Pearl. Musselman’s Grove was a huge hot spot for several decades. For one of their last shows, which happened to be a Hee Haw reunion show, they had over 5000 people crammed into this small yard. This was a family-owned venue. As with any family, they had some disagreements and conflicts. For the last 50+ years, it’s been growing moss. A very committed family member was able to sort it all out and rebuild this beautiful venue. I’m so glad it’s been reopened. I can’t believe I played on the same stage as so many of my heroes.
