The Peach Queen and an Artist Back from the Dead

So Amber was such a peach really. Pun intended. I definitely want to hook her up with an internship after her reign as a peach queen.

Sadly some big internet news providers had announced that Jerry Lee Lewis was no longer with us. But you can clearly see that he is definitely alive and kicking and rocking! The backstage was filled with people all trying to get a glimpse of him on stage.

Willie has been making the rounds as well. When Willie comes throught the back lot and stage, people part like the red sea. Charlton Heston, move over baby. Here comes Willie.

Also I was able to interview Shelby Lynne, Allison Moorer’s sister. I felt like an idiot because I didn’t know that. I felt like Joan Rivers on the red carpet, the only difference is that I care when I mess up and associate someone incorrectly.

On the top of everything, I find out that during the Webcast I kept saying we were cutting to a Danielle Evin clip when production cut to Pauline Reese. Please know, I would have never mixed up these divas — they are so different. But there is a lot going on back here…and we are human at Farm Aid…if your prick us do we not bleed….red….white and blue.

I also had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Mikey Azzara. His mission is to change the school lunch program and its education around food. He is amazing. And he definitely is a young farmer to watch out for. He and the other young farmers we have met are the faces of farming, now and the future.

Dave is on stage now. The crowd is on their feet. People are shoving to get a side stage view. I have been actually pushed over….the computer is ok, but my ego is not. These are some serious fans.
