The second Jammin’ with the General concert of the summer will feature something for everyone June 12. 

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. in the parking area in the southwest corner of the square in Lebanon.

Headlining the second installment of the series will be Johnny Counterfit. Counterfit is a family-friendly entertainer who weaves comedy into his performances, engaging the audience with voice impersonations of well-known performers including the legendary Johnny Cash and the immortal Elvis Presley.

“We’re very lucky he is coming this year,” said Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce President Sue Vanatta.

There will be a performance from up-and-coming country artist Payton Taylor, who has opened shows for acts including Merle Haggard, Pam Tillis and the Charlie Daniels Band.

The third performer of the evening is tribute artist Corrie Cluck, who does a “dead-on” impression of country star Trisha Yearwood among other artists.

“If I told you Trisha Yearwood was going to be here, you wouldn’t know the difference. She’s that great,” said Vanatta.

Along with the concert, there will be concessions and visitors can take in the local merchants on the square prior to the show.

An added attraction to Jammin’ next week is an opportunity for patrons to view several antique automobiles from the 2014 Grand National and SE Fall Dual Meet sponsored by the Antique Automobile Club of America. The show will be held next week at the Ward Ag Center.

“The antique car show will be bringing down 40 or 50 of their cars [to be placed around the Square],” Vanatta said.

“[Guests] don’t want to miss this evening,” Vanatta added. “There will be all kinds of wonderful entertainment.”
