Howdeeeeeee, This is Nina Thornton, the Mayor of Hardy. Well, I just have to say that if you missed our first Wilburn Brothers Tribute you missed a really GREAT TIME, but good news, the event will be on again this year.
I was privileged to enjoy the company of Mrs. Geraldine (Wilburn) Grisham, the sister of the Wilburn Brothers, who by the way, confirmed my favorite story that their Dad sent a catalog order to Sears and Roebuck for their very first musical instruments. World famous steel guitarist Don Helms and the Malpass Brothers gave a performance that made me fell like I had stepped back to a time when Teddy and Doyle themselves were just 17. We had a big turn out and the crowd was more than pleased with the proof being in the form of enthusiastic applause and the compliments that just keep rolling in.
Jacky and Roger True sang songs of the Wilburn Brothers and little Leslie Wilburn delighted us all with his impromptu fiddling performance.
I feel very privileged to have met the Wilburn family and the fans from Mississippi that helped make this night one to remember for years to come.
Don't forget, your always welcome in Hardy Arkansas, like no other town in the Ozarks.
