Buffalo Trace does a great job of thinking outside the box when it comes to making the most of their very limited advertising and promotion budget. One way is to take full advantage of their prime location in Frankfort, Kentucky's capital.
The outdoor concert scheduled for June 23 is a taping of Michael Johnathon's WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, which normally tapes on Monday nights at the Kentucky Theater in Lexington.
Two shows will be recorded at the June 23rd event. The first will feature Bobby Osborne, who with his brother Sonny formed the Osborne Brothers in the 1950s. They popularized the classic "Rocky Top," which became official state song of Tennessee.
Although Joan Osborne and Bobby Osborne are not related, both are Kentucky-born. Joan gained fame in 1995 with the hit, "One of Us." Her WoodSongs performance will celebrate the release of her seventh album, "Bring It On Home."
Tickets, which include both shows, are $25 and available at the Buffalo Trace Distillery Visitor Center, area Liquor Barn locations, and online. Parking is free. Bring chairs and blankets for seating. Coolers are not allowed. Gates open at 4:30 PM and the audience must be seated by 5:45 PM.
