The Jimmie Rodgers Foundation has announced plans for its first event of 2009, a gospel talent contest and concert.
The gospel talent contest will be held Jan. 17 at the Temple Theatre, prior to the performances of The Whisnants and The Isaacs, which begin at 7 p.m. Pre-registration for the contest starts at 8:30 a.m.
"And if you have any questions, go to jimmierodgers.com and call. There's like six numbers on there. And you can call someone that will direct you into where you can pick up an application or we can mail you an application," said gospel talent contest coordinator Cathy Monsour. "We've mailed out around 200 applications so far to the people that have participated before. So if you don't get your application be sure and contact us and we will get you one."
There will be competition for ages 3-15, 16 and over, and a new category for groups. The top 3 will perform in the finals.
