WELCOME NEW CARNIVAL: MILLER SPECTACULAR AMUSEMENTS
Nelson County Fair Board presents
STICK TIGHT IN CONCERT THURSDAY JULY 20th 8:00 p.m.
STICKTIGHT is a Country / Classic Rock Band from Central Kentucky bringing you the best of Classic Anthems and today's hits as well as original music! Led by 19 year old Kentucky Native from Willisburg, Sticktight Akins. Ernie M. Akins II was nicknamed "Sticktight" at the tender age of 2 by Country Music Superstar, John Michael Montgomery. He and his parents were visiting John at his farm in Springfield, KY, and Ernie, like any typical country kid, was out playing in the woods. When his mother called him to come back to the cabin, he emerged covered in sticktights. As she struggled picking them off, John got a huge laugh and said, "Boy, we're gonna have to start calling you Sticktight." From then on, Sticktight Stuck! Sticktight's love for music started at a very very young age, running around the house like any typical toddler. However, when someone on TV was playing music, he'd stop in his tracks mesmerized and watch with admiration until they were done; that's when the vision of a musical dream for Sticktight was born! He was raised on the music his dad and grandfather listened to. Influences include a variety from Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Seger, etc. Now, he's living that dream, playing for crowds every weekend. He is so animated on stage that the crowd can feel his love and passion for what he's doing. Along with a high energetic show, and charismatic stage presence, The STICKTIGHT Band guarantees you an electrifying show! Don't miss out on seeing this band, they will be performing Thursday night, July 20th, from 8pm - 11pm.
SATURDAY, JULY 22 8-11 P.M. in the Grandstands
