Downtown Meridian will be busy starting Friday night and going all the way until after the Wynonna Concert Saturday evening.

Friday is Juke Joint Night, a tribute to the music of Meridian's past, and present. Several local restaurants are participating with special live acts throughout the night.

"I really think the music scene, and having different businesses involved, it helps out getting everybody walking to different bars," says Weidmann's manager Hank Holcomb.

"You can walk Main Street, that's where Jimmie wrote a lot of his stuff," explains Josh Taylor with the Jimmie Rodgers Foundation, "and that's basically where people from out of town can come in and not just see a headliner you could see anywhere, but see authentic Meridian, Mississippi music."

That authentic sound will be on display once again Saturday with Jimmie's Jam at Dumont Plaza. That event will feature well known acts like Michael Grimm, and also local bands.

The Jimmie Rodgers Talent Show will kick things off early on Saturday at Dumont Plaza, and the Wynnona concert is set for Saturday night at the MSU Riley Center.
