The Music: Local and Live in July
By KRIS YOUMANS, Special to The Paper
Heartwarming, Exciting, Entertaining & Uplifting – so many words to describe ‘The Concert” headlined by Newnan’s own Alan Jackson on June 26th! The tornado that swept through our beautiful town has met its match and those who are rebuilding and mending their homes and their hearts will receive much needed help because of the time and talents of so many.
Thank you to Alan Jackson and the entire team of performers and volunteers!
