There’s a divide in the Nashville country scene. On the one side are the Taylor Swifts of the world that for all their cuteness and accessibility appeal to a certain kind of modern crowd. On the other side are the New Traditionalists, the musicians that are trying to stay true to the roots of country.
But what is true country music? That’s a subjective question, and one that can only be answered by a voice of experience. One of those voices is Aaron Tippin, who is coming to the 29th Annual Village Hospital Greer Family Fest on Saturday, May 5.
The Greer Chamber is looking for volunteers to help in the ticket booths & drink stations.
