Plans are well underway for the 2017 Northeast Alabama Community College Music on the Mountain, one of the most popular events held each year. The event will be held again in August. Watch for announcements in early 2017 for the date and who will be performing.
The 2016 Music on the Mountain held on August 27 in the Tom Bevill Lyceum was a huge success. Danny Lee was the Master of Ceremonies, introducing Norman Blake and Holly Williams to the stage for an evening of bluegrass and country. Blake returned to the stage with his wife Nancy, Joel McCormick and James Bryan, and Holly Williams was new to the NACC stage. She was accompanied by her husband, Chris Coleman, who has previously been on tour with the Kings of Leon, and Annie Clements.
“For us, we were so excited to have Mr. Blake back on stage,” said NACC Event Planner Chasley Bellomy. “He has a huge fan base, and we felt they would be eager to hear him again. Holly was the exact ‘new’ artist we wanted to perform. We had been working with her booking agency since the 2015 Music on the Mountain was over. It’s something we really thought about, and someone we thought the community would like to hear. She sang her grandfather Hank’s I Saw the Light at the end of the show, and that had everyone on their feet!”
Bellomy added, “Ronny Kisor (MOTM Committee Member) and I are so grateful for the support from Dr. David Campbell, NACC President. And we are also very grateful for the support of the community for this event.”
