Thomas Rhett to Perform at Kentucky Speedway's Quaker State 400
Country music singer/songwriter Thomas Rhett will rev up Kentucky Speedway's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Quaker State 400 race day when he takes the Kroger Prerace Concert Stage June 28. The 23-year-old Georgia native's "Get Me Some of That" single is 16th on the current Billboard Magazine Hot Country Songs Chart and he's also made an impact with the hits "Something to Do with My Hands," "Beer with Jesus" and the title single from his first release, It Goes Like This. Rhett's energetic performance is included with Quaker State 400 presented by Advance Auto Parts race tickets priced as low as $59. Fans can enjoy stage-side and infield views of the show while enhancing their race day experience with a daily Fan Zone pass that is sold separately. Passes additionally provide pit road access at designated times, the opportunity to view NASCAR inspection as well as enjoy unique activities and concessions in an area near pit road and surrounding Victory Lane.

Hwy. 35 N. Rhett, the son of country music fan-favorite Rhett Akins who scored numerous hits in the 1990s such as the No. 1 single "Don't Get Me Started" and "That Ain't My Truck," was raised on country, rock and hip-hop listening to Merle Haggard, Hank Williams and Led Zeppelin. All are reflected in his unique sound. During his senior year in high school, Rhett became serious about following in his father's footsteps. An emerging songwriting talent, Rhett signed a publishing contract with EMI in 2010. Eight short months later, his "I Ain't Ready to Quit" single was part of superstar Jason Aldean's My Kind of Party collection that went double platinum and became 2011's best-selling country album.

Kentucky WoolFestival in Falmouth Kentucky
The Kentucky Wool Festival is always a lot of fun filled with music,
heritage demonstrations, food and an abundance of craft booths.

The Kentucky Tourism Council has selected the Kentucky Woolfestival as one of the Commonwealth's fall "Top Ten" events. One way that makes it easier to get to the festival is the shuttle buses.

hop on board a shuttle bus at the Pendleton County Library on
Main Street, downtown Falmouth. Shuttle buses will be running
between the Pendleton CountyHigh/Pendleton County
Public Library every 1/2 hour! Due to the nature of the festival and the many livestock and animal exibits we ask that you leave your pets at home.
Thank you for your cooperation.
