There are Some New Things In Store for Saddle Up!

It is that time again! Pigeon Forge will be hosting the 12th Annual Saddle Up! event next month. The lineup of entertainment looks to be a crowd pleaser! New for 2012 is the “Stories and Strings” concert that will be held at the Smoky Mountain Guitar Shop. This concert will feature a group of entertainers that will be performing together for the first time. The group covers western life from swing to the cowboy celtic style. Sounds like a good time!

We love that Kent Rollins will be back with his award winning recipes for the Chuckwagon Cookoff. I had never experienced anything like this. It’s amazing to see a full meal being prepared over a campfire. We are not talking a simple menu either…there’s chicken fried steak, gravy, mashed potatoes, beans, cornbread, and even peach cobbler. Best of all, it’s delicious! You will definitely want to go out early and check out all of the wagons and the cooks as they are preparing lunch.


This year’s Cowboy Dance on Saturday night will feature Stephanie Davis and the Roadrunners. Hubby and I enjoy two stepping together but we are definitely novices compared to some of the fine dancing that will be shown. It’s a nice end to a fun filled Saddle Up! day.

And it’ll be fun to finish off the weekend with some Cowboy Church over at Stages West on Sunday morning, complete with a chuckwagon breakfast.

Don’t miss out on this event…you will see the American West through new eyes!
