Angie Dawns Not So Secret Diary: Dukes of Hazzard

Sunday, January 27th... Oh, that day ...The day I thought I was the red-headed stepchild. If it could have gone wrong it did. My equipment was giving me a fit, and I backed my truck over a pole... LOL. Thank goodness I called in reinforcements for the day. My friend knows me so well..that she brought me extra boots, earrings, and a necklace. Bless her lil' cotton socks.

When I finally got to the Dukes of Hazzard cast meet and greet behind Cooter's Place in Nashville, Tennessee, all the craziness at the start of that day had been well worth it. 

Ok, I am going to talk to you Dukes Of Hazzard Style for a minute. As soon as I walk in I see Cletus, Enos, Daisy, Luke, and Bo. I was like a chicken with my head cut off running around taking pictures while watching how the cast members interacted with their fans. I suddenly saw this guy wearing a black cowboy hat and signing autographs, so I make my way over to get a closer look and it was none other than wade Jennings, the grandson of Waylon Jennings, paying his respects to the show and his family.

With my Center Stage Media pass, I was all over that place, taking pictures and talking to everyone that I saw. That evening was magical. I talked with so many fans that said they had saved their money for months and months to have the opportunity to get to attend this event. I know when I mentioned that to John Schneider he was very humbled by that fact. Outside they had the "General Lee", Cooter's tow truck, and a few others from the show. There was even a tall thin "Boss Hogg"!

There were so many smiles in that room that day that no one would have ever been able to count them all, including mine! ~Angie Dawn

As a young child, our house was constantly filled with the good ol' country music. My grandma was a singer and songwriter.. she actually had a record and had written for the likes of Patsy Cline. I loved hearing that woman sing.. it was angelic. That old country music runs deep in my soul. I remember watching t.v. telling everyone that I would be on that grand ol' Opry stage one day. The fact that I can't carry a tune in a bucket wasn't gonna stop me. Lol... so the chance that I've been given to work with Center Stage Magazine is God sent.
