We just got a note from Gary Williams, who hosts the Old Dominion Jamboree on WLEE in Richmond, VA and is one of the founders of VaBluegrass.com Gary is asking everyone to get on board and send a card to one of bluegrass music’s true legends this Christmas season.
Mac Wiseman, at the age of 82, has announced he is retiring from touring. The Old Dominion Jamboree and VaBluegrass.com is asking everyone to show Mac how much we love him and his 63 year contribution to Bluegrass and Country Music by sending him a Christmas card to:
Mr. Mac Wiseman
P.O. Box 17208
Nashville, TN 37217
Of the first generation of Bluegrass musicians, Mac has written, sung and produced music for 63 years. He was vice-president of DOT Records and a founder of the Country Music Association and the first secretary. He gave Lester and Earl a break just when they were ready to call it quits. Let’s all show we appreciate him by taking a few minutes and 41 cents to send him a card.
Have a Merry Christmas by brightening someone else’s!
Sounds like an admirable idea to me. I’ll certainly be doing so.
