Susie McEntire, the queen of positive country and gospel music, will be returning to Antelope, for the 26th annual free country music concert, which is held on the first Sunday in August.
Don't miss the "Raised Country" Music Festival kicking off at 1 p.m., with Joni Harms, Oregon's award winning singer and songwriter, and winner of numerous awards by the Academy of Western Artists.
Her performance will be followed by an authentic chuckwagon barbecue by Paradise Rose at 2 p.m. The adult barbecue meal will be served for $13 per person, with additional children's barbecue options available for purchase. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs, as seating is limited.
Then, relax and enjoy the great harmonies of Central Oregon's Mud Springs Gospel Band at 3 p.m., while the kids stay busy with the ranch animal petting area, face painting, and other activities.
Headlining the festival at 3:45 p.m. will be McEntire. With more than a passing physical resemblance to her sister, Reba McEntire, Susie McEntire also shares her big sister's musical gifting.
Susie McEntire is a multi-award winning entertainer who has been named Artist of the Year in the field of Positive Country Music multiple times. She has received numerous other awards and has also scored four No. 1 singles on the Positive Country radio charts.
More than her notoriety, it is Susie McEntire's kindness and determination in the midst of difficulties, and her genuine compassion for others that inspires people around her.
There is no entry fee to attend the "Raised Country" Music Festival, although donations will be accepted.
