Groups of local and professional musicians will gather at the Cunningham Veterans Park on Highway 62 at 11:00 to begin the Seventh River Country Music Festival.

Q and A are newcomers to the River Country Music Festival. They mix uninhibited originals with the covers that encompasses the sound track of their lives....of everyone's lives. They tackle music with soul, and wisdom. They are aggressive, and tender, yet bring a harmonious balance to the stage that has been received with acclaim, and openness. They invite you to experience their love of music, Christ, and each other either through their music and live shows.
Jay Black characterizes himself as “just a simple man born on a farm in Hickman, Kentucky. Having grown up working his family's farm and pecan business, this self-taught guitarist and songwriter has really been making a name for himself in western Kentucky with his original country songs taken from his own life experiences.
Adrienne Beasley, a Wickliffe girl who has sung with the Gaither’s gospel group and was a contestant on American Idol, will be here again to lend her beautiful voice to our joyful noise. Adrienne has graced us with her performance for multiple festivals and people are still talking about her.
