Letter to the Editor
On behalf of KYTN 104.9/96.1 and Thunderbolt Broadcasting, I would like to thank everyone for making the first KYTN Country Music Festival a huge success! I am so grateful for having the opportunity to work with both the City of South Fulton and the City of Fulton to plan this event for our community. There is much to be proud of in the Twin Cities and the fact the two governments can come together to promote the Ken-Tenn area is fantastic!
This event was free to the public and could not have been possible without the support of our sponsors: Headliner Sponsor – Premier Portable Buildings; Platinum Sponsors – The Citizens Bank, First Choice Farm and Lawn and the Four Rivers Foundation; Gold Sponsors – Sodexo, BB’s Furniture and Mattress Gallery, Tennessee Tractor and Southern Printing N Graphics; Silver Sponsors – The Tennessee National Guard (Bo Pate) and All Kraft Erectors; Bronze Sponsors – VMS, Farmer’s Lime, Centerpoint Business Solutions, Fall and Fall Insurance, C&S Outdoors, J&B Motors, Paris Stone Works, Tennova, Buck’s Party Mark, Gearin.Whitledge PLLC, The Kentucky Great River Road, Jerry Ward Autoplex, and Tyson Foods; Support Sponsors – Morris Farms, Tim Britt State Farm, The Fulton Rotary Club, Adam Regen Obion County Farm Bureau, Bradley Chiropractic, Special Occasion, Chandler Music, Twin City Tire & Kustom, Ward Animal Clinic, The Keg Bar & Grill, Felicia Bella, Dr. Paul Blaylock, Snider Farms, Heritage Bank, Down Range Shooters and Republic Services; 5K/Fun Mile Sponsor – Johnny and Shelly Lucy. I cannot thank these sponsors enough for everything you did to help make this the biggest event our area has seen in country music!
Thunderbolt Broadcasting wanted to use this opportunity to give back to the community by hosting a 5K/Fun Mile the morning of the event. The proceeds from the entry fees were donated to the Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center, a health care facility for the working uninsured. Thanks to all the folks at the Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center for supporting the 5K/Fun Mile, the Masons for supplying water and of course, to all of the runners and walkers who participated in the event.
Special thanks goes to the City of South Fulton and all the department heads, as well as, the City of Fulton and their department heads; these public servants attended many meetings and worked very hard to get the cities ready to host the festival. The Unity Park Board for allowing us the use of the park, the City of Fulton for the use of the Pontotoc Building and the park, The Fulton County Transit Authority for providing transportation and all the Tennessee and Kentucky emergency personnel and law enforcement agencies along with EMS and Tri-Cities Ambulance that were on site to ensure everyone had a safe time at the event, Kenny Mayo and the South Fulton Events Corporation for providing vending services, Thea Vowell and Portis Tanner for their advice and support, Fulton Decorating for allowing us to use your parking lot for the artists buses and vendors, the Obion County and Fulton County trustees for cleaning the parks, the volunteers for devoting so many hours working at the festival, Dr. Robert Macusi for singing the National Anthem, the UTM ROTC for Presentation of Colors and to the Fulton Leader and the Union City Messenger for covering the news of the KYTN Country Music Festival in the months prior to and after the event.
Sam Hancock and Joey Delapp of Premier Portable Buildings were there from the very beginning with planning, support and helping us get through the bumps in the road along the way!
Jeff Campbell, thank you for being a blessing to the Twin Cities community and giving so much of yourself to improve and promote the Ken Tenn area. I appreciate the guidance and support you gave to me and my dream from start to finish!
Thank you to all the schools – South Fulton High School and Robbie Rudolph and Diane with the Four Rivers Foundation– Fulton City, Fulton County and Hickman County for allowing Brandon Holland, Charee White and myself come and tell you about the festival! Thank you for having us!
I would also like to give special thanks to all the staff at Thunderbolt Broadcasting for working together as a team to combine our talents to bring the festival to life! I have never been so blessed to work with such a great group of people.
Our community also needs to know that all of the artists who performed at the KYTN Country Music Festival told me many times, they have never felt so welcome in a community and have been treated so well. All of them have expressed interests in coming back in the future.
Last, but certainly not least, a big thank you to all the country music fans who attended the KYTN Country Music Festival and the blessings of good weather! We hope you enjoyed the show and look forward to bringing you more great country music!
Our goal at Thunderbolt Broadcasting is to inform, entertain and promote our communities and we accomplished this goal with the tremendous community support we received. We are already making plans for the 2nd Annual KYTN Country Music Festival! Stay tuned!
