Thanksgiving is officially in the rear-view mirror, but thanks to a quirk in the calendar, we’ve still got several days of November left to savor before December and the holiday season kick into high gear. So put your Christmas lights down, prop your feet up, and enjoy our seasonal cocktail of what’s happening around the South in this week’s Take-It-Easy-Santa-It’s-Still-November edition of The Shot:
You probably know Blackberry Farm in east Tennessee for its award-winning cuisine and gracious hospitality in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. But did you also know the resort puts on a mean concert? Look no further than the current calendar, when Luke Bryan, the Brothers Osborne, and Little Big Town will all play separate nights in the farm’s new events venue, Bramble Hall. The indoor-outdoor space seats just about 250 people, so there’s no such thing as bad seat.
The concerts are a part of the farm’s unique music program exclusively for guests, which not only honors the Smoky Mountains’ musical tradition, but also aids the community that surrounds the farm. Ticket proceeds go to a variety of charities, including the Blackberry Farm Foundation, and support special projects in East Tennessee. The bad news is that tickets for the concerts are sold out for the rest of this year. But a full calendar of new events has just been posted for 2018. Take a look now, and get your tickets early.
Bless Your Hounds
