    The Jamey Johnson show is on Sunday. I’m fairly sure the “Jamie” Johnson show on Saturday isn’t happening unless the Cascade just added a show by his sister. 🙂

    • Hal Johnson Hal Johnson says:

      This just in: the Saturday show by Jamey’s sister Jamie has been canceled due to scant ticket sales.

      Ahem.Thanks, Steve.
