Red White and Bluegrass

Red White and Bluegrass

July the 4th has always been a special holiday for me.

We recently celebrated Memorial Day the price we pay for Independence Day.

I was serving with the Marine Corps in October of 1983 when the Beirut barracks was bombed. I was not there but could have been easily.

So Memorial Day always brings back that memory for me.

July 4th makes me think of Freedom, and all that comes with it. It makes me think about this great country we live in and take for granted every day.

On July 2, Juliette Opry will celebrate with the All American Family Jam.

 There will be no headlining band that night, just us locals playing music and spending time together being thankful for our country and the lifestyle we so abundantly enjoy. I write a blog every month for Juliette and I really can’t make a connection between Bluegrass and July 4th.
