Doyle LawsonBRISTOL, TN (March 29, 2013) — Doyle Lawson is celebrating his band’s 34th Anniversary next week by partnering with a gorgeous restaurant in Bristol called “KP” to bring four Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver fans a celebration lunch with Doyle next Thursday, April 4, in historic downtown Bristol.

Two fans will be chosen from entrants on Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver’s new Official Fan Facebook Page, and the two winners may each bring a guest and be treated to lunch with Doyle at the newly christened KP, formerly K.P. Duty, at 520 State Street, beside the Paramount Theater in Bristol.

“We’re excited to partner with Doyle Lawson for such a fun promotion celebrating 34 years of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver,” said Lisa Martin, owner of KP. “We look forward to having Doyle and four of his wonderful fans with us next week!”

KP offer a delectable menu of entrees ranging from scrumptious Southern Crab Cakes to tender Pork Tenderloin to Pecan-crusted Trout, plus fresh crisp salads, hearty signature soups, sandwiches, burgers, quiche, and appetizers.

Everyone is welcome to enter the contest by visiting Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver’s new Official Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/DoyleLawsonOfficial. To enter, fans should “Like” the page AND comment on the highlighted photo of Doyle with a headline reading, “Win Lunch for Two with Doyle Lawson!” Two winners will be chosen by drawing from entrants next Tuesday, April 2, and announced on the band’s Facebook Page on Tuesday afternoon.

Doyle officially formed his band during the first week in April 1979, and the group performed their first shows in early May, playing their first show at Buddy’s Barbeque in Knoxville on a Thursday night. They came back to the Down Home in Johnson City for a show on Friday evening, played Saturday afternoon at a Bluegrass Festival in Pickens, South Carolina, then came back to the Down Home in Johnson City for a show Saturday night, packing four performances into their very first weekend. Quicksilver’s first band consisted of Terry Baucum on banjo, Jimmy Haley on guitar, Lou Reid on bass, and Doyle on mandolin.

The current line-up of Quicksilver includes Jason Barie on fiddle, Joe Dean on banjo, Corey Hensley on bass, Mike Rogers on guitar, Josh Swift on dobro, and Doyle on mandolin. Doyle was named SPBGMA’s Mandolin Player of the Year on Sunday, February 3, the same day he celebrated his 50th Anniversary in music. Lots of reasons for Lawson to celebrate this year, with Mountain Home Music hosting an album release party last week for the reigning ICM Vocal Group of the Year Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, heralding the band’s newest album “Roads Well Traveled” at Nashville’s Sirius XM Music City Theater inside Bridgestone Arena.

Guests at the private event ranged from Media to Music Industry to four special fan guests Lawson personally welcomed to the event.

“The fans are so important to us,” said Lawson, “and we want to take this special year for us and make sure our fans and friends know how much we appreciate them.”

The current fan appreciation promotion with a prize of lunch with Doyle begins on Friday, March 29, and ends on Tuesday, April 2, with lunch for the winners being held at KP on Thursday, April 4, 2013. Winners must be able to be in Bristol via their own transportation on Thursday, April 4, to be eligible to win and attend the lunch.

“I’m looking forward to lunch with our fans at KP, and hope everyone will join in the fun and enter our contest, and help us celebrate our anniversary!” said Lawson.
