1st Annual Brumley Musicfest Dates Set

Charity Event Coming to Bentonville High School With Star-Studded List of Southern Gospel and Bluegrass Acts

(Bentonville,AR) The Brumley’s are returning to N.W. Arkansas and all area music fans on May 14 and 15, 2010. The 1st Annual Brumley Musicfest concert will be held at Bentonville, AR High School and will include many of the top southern gospel and bluegrass music acts from around the country. Acts currently scheduled to appear are The Grascals, Brian Free & Assurance, Karen Peck & New River, The Chuckwagon Gang, The Dove Brothers Quartet, The Diplomats, and Little Roy & Lizzie. Mark Bishop and Aaron Wilburn will emcee and perform both nights.

Doug and Shelley McMillon have been named honorary chairpersons for the May inaugural event. They are excited to be a part of this event and help support their neighbors and businesses in the community that they have been a part of for 18 years. The McMillon’s are looking forward to working with the third-generation of Brumley’s, who are continuing the 67 year-old family music business started by the late Albert E. Brumley. Brumley authored over 800 songs, including “I’ll Fly Away” (his most popular song, recorded in every country and every language on the planet, and by every genre of music), “Turn Your Radio On”, and “Jesus Hold My hand”.

All profits from ticket sales will be given to local charities including Decision Point, a drug and alcohol treatment center in N.W. Arkansas.
