Live music, good friends, and one amazing cause- Fall 2013 Kat Jam was an event that still has people talking. Fans came in to the sold-out Fillmore to see Scotty McCreery, Parmalee, Jerrod Neimann, Frankie Ballard, and Craig Campbell take the stage. The best part? $20,000 was raised, and all proceeds went to benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Before the show kicked off, Paul and Meg emceed the live auction, which included an autographed Steve Smith jersey, Cam Newton helmet, and Jason Aldean guitar. By now listeners knew Paul had been inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame, and Meg had been going on for weeks about a surprise for him. She certainly didn’t disappoint, as she played a video with some of Nashville’s finest including Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Cassadee Pope and Brantley Gilbert congratulating him. Meg even called in a favor to have the Governor Pat McCory submit a video!
After this Jerrod Neimann began to play, and the Fillmore got louder as each performer took their seat. Parmalee serenaded the crowd with an acoustic version of “Carolina,” Jerrod Neimann put some soul in “Lover, Lover,” and Frankie Ballard sang his current hit “Helluva Life.” Scotty McCreery came straight from class at North Carolina State, and seemed like he was ready for some Bo time. He sang “See You Tonight” among other hit songs.
The end of Kat Jam had to be the best moment, as all the guys sang “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks. They encouraged the crowd to sing the “third unsaid verse,” and the entire audience rocked the Fillmore. A great time was held by all at Fall 2013 Kat Jam, and we are looking forward to the next show already!
