Kentucky Headhunters to Headline 2013 Falkville Fall Festival

Country rock band Kentucky Headhunters will be the headlining act at the Falkville Fall Festival set for October 12, 2013. Sponsored by the Falkville Volunteer Fire Department and the Town of Falkville, the annual celebration features an antique tractor show, car show, and other family-friendly activities in addition to live music. All activities take place in the town’s downtown area.

A pancake breakfast at the Fire Department kicks things off at 7 a.m. where plenty of the fluffy hot cakes will be served until 11 a.m. Donations to the Fire Department will be accepted at the door. The car show and tractor show follow at 8 a.m. with arts and crafts vendors, bingo, inflatable fun for children, and food vendors set up throughout the day. The Fire Department will host a cake auction at noon where an assortment of yummy desserts will be up for grabs.

Music fills the air beginning at 9 a.m. At 11 a.m., local artist Jeff Whitlow and the Old Barn Band will open for headliner act The Kentucky Headhunters. With his strong, baritone country voice, Jeff Whitlow performs traditional country music, and whether he is singing a Merle Haggard ballad, or a lightning fast tune from George Jones, the crowd can’t keep from clapping their hands or tapping their toes to the country beat.

At 1 p.m., three-time CMA, ACM and Grammy Award winning band, The Kentucky Headhunters will take the stage. The country and southern rock band will be performing some of their great hits such as “Oh Lonesome Me,” “Dumas Walker,” “Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine” and many more songs from their seven studio albums.

The event wraps up around 3 p.m. Admission is free. Falkville is located between Huntsville and Birmingham off of exit 322 on Interstate 65. For more information, contact the Falkville Town Hall at 256.784.5922.
