“The Wellington Country Music Show”, a variety show with old-fashioned country music and corney country humor, is scheduled for Saturday, August 27. Presented on a picturesque outdoor stage, the Wellington show is a full evening of fun entertainment.
Nashville personality Emily Portman will be appearing on stage at Wellington Farm near Grayling, MI. Her performance will be included in the next Country Music Show presented by the 60-acre living history farm. During her portion of the Country Music Show, Emily will be appearing as Loretta Lynn.
Emily Portman has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee and has also appeared at the historic Ryman Auditorium in that same city. Upon several occasions, she appeared with George Jones at the Ryman Auditorium. She also appeared in a leading role in the movie, “Strawberry Wine” based on the Deanna Carter Song. She has appeared in several tribute shows about Loretta Lynn and recently toured the country playing the role of Loretta Lynn in the musical ”It’s Only Make Believe” a show based on the life of Conway Twitty.
Ms. Portman is a sponsor of the Wounded Warrior Project and the royalties from her latest album, “Country Girl Like Me” will go to that organization.
Price of admission for the show is only $12.50 and tickets are presently available at the farm’s Visitor Center or by phone. Steel guitars sing, the banjos ring and Ezra and Ethel Frogmire banter at the Wellington Country Music Show.
