The program will take place each Wednesday evening beginning at 6 p.m. CT.

The series will kick off on Aug. 19 with Dismal River Boys performing from Ole Red Nashville, Monroeville performing from Ole Red Gatlinburg, Telina Rudd and The Red Clay Gypsies performing from Ole Red Tishomingo and Bryan Malpass performing from Ole Red Orlando.
