Five years ago Sharyn and Tim went to Nashville for the first time for an anniversary celebration. They fell in love with the city, the music and mostly the people. Since then, we have made dozens of trips to Music City and developed some great friendships. On a subsequent trip with our friends Chris and Jen Hill we came up with the idea to start the Music City Celebration Sale. We were lucky to meet Matt Harville, the manager for Alan Jackson's Bar on Broadway in Nashville. Matt and his crew welcomed us to their venue and we held a virtual cattle auction using photos and videos in downtown Nashville. The event has been coined….NOT JUST A SALE ITS AN EXPERIENCE. We have had hundreds of friends from North American join us for the three sales we have done thus far and have sold over 2 million dollars of cattle in those three sales and are planning a fourth sale in December.
We also were lucky enough to become friends with several artists. They have come and played at our summer party for the last 4 years and done parties at several cow sales around the country and for our friends in Vermont. From this Sharyn and Tim Abbott Productions was born. Our party had gotten so big we had to go to a bigger venue and last year we partnered with THE ABBEY in Sheldon VT and had the first annual RIVERSIDE COUNTRY JAM. We had 5 great artists join us and sold out our show with over 300 in attendance. This summer we had several concerts on our deck at the lake and in local venues. Kinsey Rose, Sarah Montgomery, Anna Laprad, Timmy Teague and Timmy Baumgartner all made trips to VT. We are currently planning a huge music festival to be held at the Abbey River Rapids Pavilion in the summer of 2021.
We have put some links to several of our dearest friends and our favorite artists from Nashville, give them a listen, buy their music and, if you are ever in Nashville, look them up!
