What Happens in the Hills, stays in the Hills

just aren’t enough rednecks in Greenville. Maybe there just
aren’t enough places in Greenville to act like a redneck?
As wonderful as our town is with all the beautiful people
(YES, I am talking about YOU!) and places to go, I still
found myself in the hills of Ohio on the third weekend of
July for the fourth year in a row.
like beer (I can hear you cheer!) and live music this is the
4-day paradise you have been looking for. There is only one
factor that determines who can attend Jamboree in the
Hills…Can you make the Redneck Run?
Thousands of people have been packing up for Morristown,
Ohio since 1977 for this spectacular event and all-star
line-up. With artists old and new and line-ups that seem
too good to be true, Jamboree in the Hills has been compared
to the “Fanfare” of Nashville. In 2006 we saw artists such
as: Montgomery Gentry, Poverty Neck Hillbillies, Little Big
Town, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Julie Roberts, Mark
Chesnutt, Jason Aldean, Tracy Byrd, Sammy Kershaw, Clint
Black, Neal McCoy, Sugarland, Carrie Underwood, Clay Walker,
The Oak Ridge Boys, the Lost Trailers, Earl Thomas Conley,
and many others.
Campgrounds surround the amphitheater for miles and miles.
Hotels are available and most offer shuttle service. If I
can be honest, you can’t really experience all Jamboree has
to offer unless you stay in the campgrounds. The nightlife
is what makes this event memorable. This year Keith Urban
and band members ventured into the grounds after the show
and entertained campers until the wee hours of the morning.
The musicians can’t even resist the energy and excitement
that Jamboree fans have to offer.
official Jamboree website can be accessed at
www.jamboreeinthehills.com. You can see line-ups from
past years, purchase merchandise, get event information, and
look at pictures fans have posted. I will admit that with
all the fun you will have pictures are a necessity. First
off, no one will believe the fun you had without them, and
secondly, it helps refresh your memory after four days of
intense fun, booze, and thousands of sexy bodies!
in the Hills 2007 will take place from July 19-22, 2007.
See you in the Hills!
