“This festival is just another way we’re moving Madisonville forward and improving the quality of life for our citizens, potential citizens, and our visitors,” said Mayor David Jackson. “Bringing in big names like Jonny Lang while still supporting our local favorites like Boscoe France is what makes Madisonville stand out; we put on the big shows but we’ll never lose the small town feel, and that’s what makes us the best town on earth.”
