When you are with people for 25 years they become family. That’s the way I feel about my family at the Big Valley Jamboree. I’ve been there for every year since it started, and have so many fantastic memories. Of course all of the incredible artists that have played in the hundreds, but staying the weekend and camping with thousands of other country music loving people is really my favorite part. Who was my favorite performer on the stage after all they years? The answer for me is simple, my 6 year old son. Thanks to Larry Werner and everyone at BVJ who let little Carter go up on the stage and sing his theme song in 2003. I still can’t believe how cute and composed he was back then. I promise 20 year old Carter would not join me on the stage and sing.
