Per Taylor Bright,Folio Weekly-Jacksonville: If Nashville still made country music, not over-produced tripe, the songs of Jacksonville singer/songwriter Larry Mangum would sound more familiar. Mangum knows the evolution of country music better than most.... Mangum says he sometimes wishes he had made it big in Nashville - but he's content playing his music in Florida. "I feel like Nashville will always be important to me...but I will not be important to Nashville".
Adding to the enjoyment of the afternoon will be an appearance by Wackie Jackie as emcee . Mr Wackie is the host of the Tues Morning WMNF (88.5 FM radio) “Early Bird Wake-Up Show” which is dedicated to Country Classic Music.
