J'ville Musical Heritage

In the Jacksonville Daily Progress we find  "Organizers adding history to the Jam"
By Kelly Young  [The article begins:] 
"Event organizers have always intended for East Texas' musical heritage to play an important role in the J'ville Music Jam, but have lacked the time and resources needed to focus on the historical aspect of the festival. This year they hope Jacksonville's musical past will play a much more prominent role in the JMJ.

After rocking the event in 2007, Grant Cook has agreed to headline the Jam again this year. Adding an historic element to his set, Cook will spend part of his stage time playing music by many of East Texas' early music legends — like Johnny Horton and Al Dexter."
