West Tennessee favorite, 24Seven will have you singing along with their mix of rock, country, and anything in between.  Enjoy some throw backs to the 80’s and 90s while you kick back with family and friends at the DoodleSoupDays Saturday night musical finale.

Block 3

Closing out this year’s DoodleSoupDays Festival will be Big Sandy native Johnny Mac.   Whether he is playing in the Music City, or a Sunday afternoon at Kentucky Lake, Johnny Mac is an amazing and talented artist.  Johnny Mac’s smooth Haggard voice will not disappoint!
