Leon Mercer is right - "country music is here". Boot City deserves much praise for bringing quality musical talent to the Wabash Valley area. I had the pleasure of enjoying Leon with Rich Anderson and Lloyd Wood, (see Boot City's upcoming events) and I must say it was a great show. After knowing Leon for most of my life, I have had the joy of playing drums behind him and the praise band at Carbon Baptist Church. While playing in various entertainment venues for nearly fifty years I have found as much talent here in the Terre Haute area as anywhere. Thank you Boot City for your efforts...check it out...you will not be disappointed.
I have seen all your shows this season so far. I enjoyed them all but one. Keep up the great work. You have a very lovely place and the choices you are making for classic country is super.
Scott Wattle of Blue Suede Crew is my favorite.
COUNTRY MUSIC IS HERE- JUST LOOK FOR IT
In response to Mr. Lawson's recent letter, real country music is hard to find but is available in the Indiana/Illinois area if you know where to find it.
First of all, Rod O'Kelley at Boot City ofers a variety of music, including country, at his Opry shows on Saturday nights. One of his best shows features Lloyd Wood, a great country entertainer. As a steel guitar player of more than 50 years, I recently had the opportunity to tour Florida with the Rich Anderson Show featuring Mr. Wood and he is a tremendous talent.
It is apparent that the Terre Haute area should support an entertainment venue with the local talent available.
