"Jamboree in the Hills," which is popularly known as country music's Super Bowl, started out as an outdoor two-day festival in 1977. The event was an idea of Glenn Reeves and Jerry Brightman, who hosted it near Morristown's Brush Run Park. It has since grown into a country music union of sorts where fans from around the world come together pitching tents, parking on hills above the spacious amphitheater and all across front yards, filling camp grounds and backyards, bringing in wagons loaded with beer, plenty of ice and lawn chairs.
The festival's current outdoor amphitheater has been enhanced with many speaker towers along with Jumbotron TV screens which allow fans at top of the hill to easily enjoy these concerts. Jamboree is one go of the most enormous and most celebrated yearly country music events and its range is so wide that it has its own post office and an on-site emergency ward. The concert is organized by Live Nation and showcases a broad variety of legendary, veteran and new musicians running from Thursday to Sunday every July's third week. The program is a spinoff of WWVA Jamboree but is not affiliated with the present day incarnation of Wheeling Jamboree that airs on WKKX.
At "Jamboree in the Hills" country music acts are the focus of concerts but artists from various other genres are also welcomed to perform, including The Beach Boys, the Steve Miller Band and Weird Al" Yankovic. The entire event is broadcasted live on several local new stations like WTOV, except performers who choose not to go on air. In 2009, only two days of the festival were broadcasted.
The festival has its own theme song which was written by Mayf Nutter in 1978 and is played proudly every year. Written only after the first Jamboree festival, the song's lyrics describe the initial festival experience and all the excitement and thrill that surrounded it. In recent years another song has been written by Joe Zelek, which has been performed throughout the festival as its general experience tune.
At the Jamboree, there are only very few assigned places or seating arrangements known as lawn seats. During the festival, every morning hundreds of fans rush in through the gates with their tarps, lawn chairs and blankets trying to fix a space closer to the stage. This exciting part of the event is often chaotic and muddy and has over the years been dubbed as "The Redneck Run'.
High profile performers who have appeared at the event include Merle Haggard, Brooks & Dunn, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Jr., Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Martina McBride, Charlie Daniels Band, Kenny Chesney, Alabama, Travis Tritt, Rascal Flatts, Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley and Alan Jackson. This year brings on yet another interesting lineup so make sure to grab your Jamboree in the Hills tickets in time.
