PARIS, TN – April 3, 2019 – The Tennessee River Jam will host three days, 12 concerts, and 22 artists June 28-30 on the shores of the Tennessee River near Paris Landing State Park, produced by the Paris-Henry County Chamber of Commerce.
The Froggyfest 2019, part of the Tennessee River Jam, will host award-winning country artist, Joe Diffie. In addition, the concert will include Confederate Railroad, the Kentucky Headhunters, Johnny Mac and the Heart Attacks and American Idol alum Tristan McIntosh. Music will begin 4 p.m. until 11 p.m. June 29. Tickets can be purchased online at www.froggy1037.com.
Starting Friday, local artists Ethan Torsak, followed by the Old Sprit’s, will perform at Ace’s Restaurant. Both groups play a wide variety of styles ranging from rock, blues and country. That afternoon, check out Cherry Avenue’s music at the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge Visitors Center. The Bethel University alumni, also performing, sing a combination of original and cover tunes, predominately in the country genre.
From there, stop by The Breakers to check out sets from locals Josh McKee and Johnny Mac as they open for the Wilson Brothers, who recently enjoyed a No. 1 video on CMT 12-Pack Countdown and over 2 million streams. There will be a $10 cover charge at the door for this concert.
At Blues Landing, you will find the regional group of exceptionally talented musicians with the band, Stronghold. Later that night, stop by LL’s Bar and Grill to hear local new comer Nikki Bobo and the After Dark Band from Memphis. There will be a $12 cover charge at the door for this concert.
Kick off your Saturday morning at Sweet Jordan’s and Henry County High graduate Lydia Shoemaker. For lunch, head back to the Breakers and see Tick Pony’s front man, Keith Burns and Will Dakota.
In addition to Froggyfest that evening, Tayla Lynn and the SoulShine Band will be at Blues Landing. Tayla Lynn’s life could be a country song, which is no surprise considering she was born into the country music dynasty created by her grandmother, Loretta Lynn. She’s experienced success as songwriter and artist, most recently as a part of the trio Stealing Angels.
Also that evening, check out River Dan and His Band at the Breakers. They play a raw blend of "Roots Music" combining soulful country, blues, rock, bluegrass, and Gospel, and their raucous musicianship is matched only by Dan's distinctive and powerful voice. There will be a $10 cover charge at the door for this concert.
Sunday features some of our local favorites with Olivia Fay opening up for Johnny Mac and Randall French at the Breakers and 24 Seven rocking the house at Blues Landing.
