Cumberland Jamboree returns to Palace March 3

The Cumberland Jamboree returns to the Palace Theatre Saturday, March 3, at 7 p.m. Walter Tollett and the Trackside Band will kick off their 2012 tour, "America Show Me Your Smile." The first show will be at the March 3 Jamboree.

The tour schedule is as follows: Charlotte, NC; Nascar track in Talladega, AL; Brooklyn, Michigan; Mississippi State Truckers Association; 2012 show in Gulfport Mississippi; and ATHS Southeast Regional Truck Show at Chilhowee Park in Knoxville on April 13-14.

Trackside can be seen in Texas, Florida as well as Arkansas. For the full concert schedule, go to or

The March 3 Jamboree Show will feature Jeff Alred, who has worked with the Cumberland County Playhouse and was one of the original lead vocalists for Trackside.

This show will give Crossville a chance to hear 12-year-old Bree Davis, who is the newest member of the group. Davis has just won the state talent contest for Junior Beta Club. The competition was held at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville. She has appeared on a number of TV shows and will tour with Trackside this year.

Christon Newman, guest, will dazzle the crowd. She has been on Trackside before. Trackside will also welcome to the stage Ronnie Sullivan, who is one of the most talented guitarists and is Crossville's best kept secret.

Member Gary Edmonds will fire the house with a banjo tune. C.W. Pimberton, drummer, will be back, and Fred Tollett, an original member, will be the sound system engineer. Rick Ward will be on the keyboard, and Dave Nabors will do his rendition of "Last Date."

There will only be four Jamboree shows this year. Walter and the gang are looking forward to shaking hands and giving a big howdy to all their friends and making new ones.

Tickets will be on sale at the Palace Theatre main floor. Price will be $10 for the bottom floor and $5 for the balcony. Due to a lack of sponsors, the Jamboree will no longer be free.
