The award winning songwriter Kelli Johnson has often been compared to Alison Krauss, but she is defining her own style of music. Her songs have been recorded by numerous artists and featured in many regional and national television commercials. Kelli's song Over My Head won Grand Prize in the 2013 Nashville International Summer Songwriting Series and in 2011 she won the Alabama State Texaco Showdown. Kelli has also hosted the regionally acclaimed TV program, Kelli's Acoustic Crossroads, and also serves as the Associate Producer and frequent guest of the Dugger Mountain Music Hall broadcast by Heartland Broadcasting as well as numerous affiliate and independent television stations.

The VW Boys, known for their comedy as well as their music, consist of veteran performers Tim White, Dave Vaught, and "Fat" Albert Blackburn. They have put together a show that appeals to all ages, with a blend of magic, comedy, and string music. The VW Boys have performed at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, The Kennedy Center, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and shared the stage with numerous legendary bluegrass artists. Many people across America also recognize Tim White of the VW Boys as the host of "Song of the Mountains" the nationally syndicated concert series seen on PBS each week.

I think that everyone will agree that the January show was great and that Stage 123 is an excellent venue with the stage, permanent lights, and great sound.
