Rodeo stars jam with the general

The weather-shortened Jammin’ with the General took place Thursday on the Lebanon Square, and fans still were treated to the music of Ryan Goolsby, a Watertown native and former National Junior High School Finals Rodeo participant.

Gooslby came on stage after the rodeo’s royal court – Middle Tennessee Junior Rodeo Queen Josie McGrew, Princess Jordan Davis Jr., Princess Emery Vensel and former queen Summer Weldon – were presented to the crowd.


Goolsby invited fans to attend the rodeo. He said the participants in the National Junior High School Finals Rodeo are “the future stars of tomorrow. There are the top rodeo stars from across the U.S. If you want to see the people who will be stars of tomorrow, come on out to the rodeo and check them out.”

The event was supposed to be capped off with a night of music by Zone Status from Murfreesboro, but organizers called the event at around 7 p.m. due to the threat of severe thunderstorms.

Zone Status will be rebooked for a future event, according to host announcer M.J. Lucas from radio station WANT in Lebanon.

Jammin’ with the General is a free family friendly community concert open to the public. It is presented by the special events division of the Lebanon-Wilson County Chamber of Commerce and offers three nights of entertainment on the Lebanon Square, which was recently awarded the 2016 John S. Wilder Rebuild Tennessee Award. 

The final Jammin’ with the General of the summer is scheduled for July 21.
