Fall Festival Organizers Reaching Out To Bamajam Fans

John Rich.

The organizers for the Bamajam music festival are reaching out to fans who had purchased tickets for the cancelled event earlier this year. They’ve created a new event – “Fall Festival At Bama Jam Farms” – and have decided that not only are their tickets for the cancelled event good for this one, but they will let ticket holders bring a few friends along with them for free and worth more than what you paid for on your original ticket. Here’s the details:

  • Customers WHO HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED A TWO FOR ONE ticket voucher to next year’s Bama Jam can now redeem that voucher for a  5 for 1 ticket to Fall Festival.
  • Customers WHO HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY REFUND can exchange their Bama Jam ticket for a 10 for 1 ticket to Fall Festival.

The fall festival features headlining performances by Celebrity Apprentice winner John Rich, Mercy Me and Darryl Worley. The October 29th date will feature hay rides, a hay maze, and helicopter treasure drop for kids 7 & under on-site.

“I am excited to be back in Enterprise, Alabama,” says Darryl Worley.  “It’s time for the community to have an event like this, where God and Country coincide.”

The Bamajam Music Festival was cancelled earlier this year, but is expected to return in 2012.

John Rich Reacts to Casey Anthony Verdict

Big & Rich

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of the Caylee Anthony case over the last three years. Casey Anthony, a young Florida mom, was accused of murdering her 2-year old daughter, Caylee Marie Anthony, in 2008. After 6 weeks of testimony in an Orlando court room, the jury rendered a verdict in 11 hours today. She was found not guilty on any of the murder charges against her daughter, but found guilty of lying to police.

John Rich of Big & Rich, and the latest winner of Celebrity Apprentice, is just as shocked as the rest of the world this afternoon.

@johnrich: WHAT?????????????

@johnrich: NO JUSTICE for CAYLEE. I feel sick to my stomach.Dear Lord, what has our world become?

What is your reaction on the verdict? Did you follow the case?
