Mark you calendars, country and bluegrass fans!

Continuing a great summer of special events, The Great Escape announces an upcoming appearance of Country Music Hall Of Fame living legend Mac Wiseman at The Great Escape's Charlotte Avenue location on Saturday, August 29th at 1:00 p.m.

Wiseman will do a 30 minute live performance and a book signing for his newly-published "Mac Wiseman: All My Memories Fit For Print." (His book signing and meet-and-greet with fans will follow the live performance.) This book is currently on sale for $29.99 at our Madison & Bowling Green stores, as well as the Charlotte Avenue Superstore location.

Mac Wiseman has had an unprecedented career, stretching from the 1940s to the present: first as a broadcaster, then as a musician for pioneers Buddy Starcher, Molly O'Day, Flatt & Scruggs and Bill Monroe, and finally as a solo singer, hitting his stride with the ballad, "Davy Crockett" and "Jimmy Brown The Newsboy." Behind the scenes, Mac produced acts like Reno & Smiley, Cowboy Copas and Bonnie Guitar. After many years in this role, he reemerged as a college circuit favorite; was the first bluegrass artist touring Europe, recorded with Big Band leader Woody Herman, helped originate 1990s' Groovegrass Boyz with Doc Watson, Del McCoury & Bootsy Collins, cut new Millenium discs with John Prine, Charlie Daniels, Merle Haggard and did the last recordings with buddy Johnny Cash.

The 90-year old Wiseman officially retired in 2007 and rarely makes public appearances anymore. Don't miss your chance to meet this living legend, get his autograph and watch him perform.

Space is limited. If you wish to attend, please fill out and turn in the RSVP form below at the Charlotte Avenue, Madison or Bowling Green location of The Great Escape- or reply to this email as early as possible.
