Bandy to Join JRMF Lineup

A new act has been added to the lineup for the 2013 Jimmie Rodgers Music Festival.

Jimmie Rodgers officials announced Thursday that Meridian native Moe Bandy will headline the first night of the festival, a Roots and Blues Night at Dumont Plaza Thursday, May 16.

Bandy has scored numerous hits on the charts over the years, like "Americana", "I Cheated Me Right Out of You", "Hank Williams, You Wrote My Life", "Bandy the Rodeo Clown", and "It's a Cheating Situation". He'll be joined by Jimmie Rodgers impersonator, singer and musician Britt Gully, for the event.

"You can't beat that," said Jones. "We'll have refreshments. Bring your lawn chairs, come casual. Just relax and have a great night at Dumont Plaza."

Admission for the Roots and Blues Night is only $5.00. It's the first of several nights of country music acts that week.
