Last Thursday, I had the opportunity to drive over to Bremen GA to Mill Town Music Hall where country music executive and producer, Harold Shedd was being honored. I read about this event on Chapel Hill News and Views Facebook page (be sure to LIKE their page). Mr. Shedd is a Bremen GA native, and is known for producing artists like Shania Twain and Alabama. The concert portion of this tribute had been sold out for some time, but the red carpet event was free and open to the public.
Here’s a couple of photos of Mr. Shedd making his red carpet arrival.
I was very excited to see Mel Tillis on the red carpet. He was very kind and took the time to sign all autograph requests and to take photos with his fans.
Here I am with Mel Tillis. How exciting to meet a true country music legend!
John Berry on the red carpet. The day of this event was also his wife’s birthday. He sang Happy Birthday to her on the red carpet.
Travis Tritt’s wife, Theresa, on the red carpet. I learned that she gets her hair done in Douglasville and they live in Hiram. She was so sweet, and when the lady next to me asked for her autograph she acted super shy and replied, “but I’m not famous!” I think I recall the red carpet host saying something about her working with a particular dog rescue group. If anyone knows more about this, let me know.
Doug Stone on the red carpet.
Toby Keith making a very hasty red carpet RUN. No autographs or photos for this cowboy.
Teddy Gentry of Alabama making his red carpet arrival.
This was definitely worth getting out of the house for! We now have tickets for The McKamey’s concert on September 15th at this venue. I’m looking forward to attending many more concerts here. It’s nice to have such a venue so close to where we live. Thanks to Chapel Hill News and Views for the event information. Without you, I would have missed out on an exciting afternoon!
