Surrounded with some of his best musician buds, Tackett was in
his element on Friday.
Dan has been playing music and attending campground shindigs just
like this for many years, and he usually took a grandchild or two
with him. Which is what many will do this weekend. It is a great
family activity even if only for a few hours.
Tackett's daughter, Misty Bell, and her children organized the
event to help Dan bring some of the friends that he's made over the
years to Logan County for all of us to enjoy too.
Plenty of tunes
will be played over the next two days. There are lots of other
activities going on at the campground also. The family-friendly
event will make some great memories.

As several musicians dug into their plucking and strumming of
America's best tunes, harmonious notes mingled with campfire smoke
over the grounds for an idyllic start into fall. On the picnic table
in back of the musicians was a more-than-40-pound watermelon that
Dan grew himself. It was the probable refreshment for the night.
