Go ahead, go to Gadsden. But come back

It's not exactly breaking news here, but I've found the lineup for this year's Gadsden Riverfest to be quite interesting.

In case you haven't heard, here's the folks on the bill, in no particular order:

Clint Black
Billy Ocean
Sister Hazel
The Last Goodnight
Jeremy Lesley
Earl Thomas Conley
The Little River Band

It's interesting, too, that again and reworked soft-rockers REO Speedwagon were scheduled to headline the "rock" night of Riverfest, but for some reason the band cancelled some of its summer shows, including the one in Gadsden. (Gotta pull out "High Infidelity' ... ) Billy Ocean -- seriously -- was hired to replace Kevin Cronin and the boys.

The dates are June 13-14.
