Two young country singers will be part of the entertainment this year as the 26th annual Alabama Blueberry Festival moves downtown for the first time.
Cheree Silcox and Peyton Rivers, who have both had singles on the mainstream country and independent country charts, will join local talent for the festival, which will be held Saturday, June 17, in downtown Brewton.
Silcox, a Pensacola, Fla., native and graduate of the University of Alabama, now lives in Nashville. Her single “In His Dreams” was released earlier this month, and her album will be released digitally in July by My Records.
Her single “In Love Alone” peaked at No. 40 on the mainstream country chart and hit No. 14 on the independent chart.
Rivers, just 18, is a Mobile native who has performed in several venues on the gulf coast. Her latest single was released in January. “Did You Come Back” peaked at No. 48 on the main country chart and hit No. 16 on the independent country chart.
