We’ve been telling you about Nelson born Sally Rose for years. Folks, she’s all groun up now! Continuing to rise in recognition and her tour schedule continues to get bigger and bigger. Recently her Sally Rose Band made the first cut on the way to playing at the upcoming Lockn’ Festival in a few weeks. Bands are selected in a prelude called Rockn’ To Lockn’.

Here’s what Sally has to say about it all on her Facebook Page:

“Hey there, sweetest dudes! We’re super stoked to play alongside great bands and friends at Rockn’ To Lockn’ @ The Jefferson on July 24th at The Jefferson Theater! We made the first cut and are stoked to get down and strut our stuff for a chance to head back to LOCKN’ Festival and play LOCKN’ 2015! Grab aaaaall yer homies, make some foxy glow paint signs, dancin shoes, yodeling howl and let’s party! Remember, it’s an audience vote! No matter the results of the competition, it’s going to be a fun-filled, killer show…Our fingers are crossed, but best of luck and camaraderie to all! Thanks so much for all the support over the years, y’all. Love you big time.”

  1. There are three bands in this competition with roots in Nelson County. NOT JUST MISS ROSE !!! Lord Nelson are from Nelson County (duh)and the lead singer of The Mad Anthonys is a Critzer born and breed in Nelson County with roots five generation deep. He is also a taxpaying landowner in the county. It seems unfair to single out one act over the others when all are local. Not a fan of this headline Blue Ridge …..you shouldn’t be playing favorites!!!

  2. And my comment still awaits posting or a response. Hmmmm…..:-( fishy smelling and bad journalism. Smh

    All comments are moderated and some sit in cue for several days until reviewed Jennifer, we just saw this comment which we are replying to and are about to address your other one as well. Thanks!

    Jennifer, we actually were asked by SRB if we’d mention the fact she would be on stage in the upcoming competition. We clearly mentioned there were other bands in the competition as well in the story. AND, we have generously covered at least one of the other bands (perhaps both) that I know off hand ( http://issuu.com/blueridgelife/docs/05_01_2014_blueridgelife_issuu-web/26) in our magazine last year, just like we have Sally. We wish all of the bands well, and no one was intentionally singled out. Sometimes all you have to do is ask, as Sally did. Thanks sharing your thoughts!
