Happy Friday everyone! Having a plan A and a plan B may not be a bad idea this weekend.
One of north central Florida's biggest music events continues into the weekend. Suwannee River Jam is always a popular event, especially amongst country music fans. I saw Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at the Jam several years ago. One thing's for sure...there's no shortage of music! Tonight, on the main stage, you can catch Easton Corbin and Rodney Atkins. Tomorrow Aaron Tippin, Locash Cowboys, Florida Georgia Line and Sheryl Crow are featured. Suwannee River Jam runs through Saturday night at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park...3076 95th Drive in Live Oak. Click the link for more info and detailed directions. Website
