It's Official! "Little Bitty" town of Mineral, VA wins Alan Jackson Concert!
a few weeks ago, Alan Jackson was going to let his fans vote to bring him to their town. Little bitty Mineral, VA quickly jumped to the lead in fan votes, led by sympathy for the devastation inflicted on the small town by an August earthquake. Things were looking up for Mineral until some lawyers got involved and pointed out the Mineral had to meet minimum seating capacity requirements. Then a few weeks after that, Mineral learned that they would not receive any FEMA aid to rebuild after the quake. Just when things looked darkest, the legal hurdles were cleared and Mineral was declared the official winner of the Demand Alan Jackson concert. Congratulations to our Blue Ridge cousins who will likely be in attendance. We'll keep ya'll posted when we learn the date and time of the show.
