Hell-Raising is a Family Value

This year's K95 Pontiac-GMC Countryfest celebrates the dichotomy of the country-rock species, the conflict raging at the heart of these noble beasts. Look to headliners Montgomery Gentry and Shooter Jennings (pictured), both of country families (Eddie Montgomery's brother is country star John Michael Montgomery; Shooter is Waylon's kid), both making that hell-raising rebel noise. And yet many of their songs promote those core values of family, small towns and leather pants. Such issues these youngsters wrestle with in the pursuit of the guitar-driven redneck ideal! What contradictions will play themselves out at the Richmond Raceway Complex Saturday, Aug. 19, at 10 a.m. Will things be resolved, even with performances by Little Texas, Mustang Sally, Marna Bales and B2B? Will hell, in fact, be raised? Tickets are $15-$50. Call 794-6700 or visit www.k95country.com.
