Jimmie Rodgers Festival
Britt Gully, in his now-familiar role as Jimmie Rodgers, prepares to board an Amtrak train at Union Station in downtown Meridian on Tuesday. Gully rode the train from Meridian to Tuscaloosa, Ala., and back to promote the last two shows of this year's Jimmie Rodgers Festival. On Friday, at 7 p.m., Delbert McClinton will perform at Singing Brakeman Park in downtown Meridian. On May 28, country music performers Clay Walker and Jeff Bates will entertain at the Lauderdale County Agri-Center on Highway 19 South. For more information, call the Meridian/Lauderdale County Tourism Bureau at 482-8001.
