SpringTree had the opportunity to provide sound and lighting for the inaugural Cross-County Lines Concert starring Alison Krauss and Jerry Douglass. The fundraiser for the Franklin, TN based nonprofit Americana Music Association previewed what the Association hopes will be a full-scale festival beginning in 2014.
When explaining the reason behind the festival, Americana Music Association Director Jed Hilly said, “This music that has evolved from American roots traditions is something that needs to be shared, and something that we need to be proud of. Cross County Lines is about breaking borders, breaking boundaries and coming together as a larger community.”
Performers that joined Krauss and Douglass included Shawn Colvin, Amos Lee, Teddy Thompson, Angel Snow, and Sarah Jarosz.
