Currituck Outer Banks Brings Top Names in Country Music to the Stage

June 22, 2009
The July 4th weekend promises lots of great entertainment in Currituck County as two stars in Country Music bring back-to-back days of outstanding music and performance to the local stage.

Jason Michael Carroll kicks off the weekend performances on July 3rd, taking the stage at the Weeping Radish in Jarvisburg. Carroll with his traditional country music sound and rich baritone voice, will be performing from 4:00 until 10:00 p.m.
The day promises to be a good old fashioned Fourth of July picnic with Weeping Radish beer and the restaurant’s award winning sausage cooked on an outdoor grill. Phone (252)-491-5205 or on line at www.weepingradish.com for more information.
The 17th annual July 4th Whalehead Club fireworks display just got even more spectacular as country music star Stephen Cochran, a decorated Marine veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, brings his unique sound and arrangements to Currituck County Heritage Park.
The holiday celebration will be held on the grounds of the fabled Whalehead Club in Corolla.
A celebration of all that is best in America, the day is filled with good food, games for the kids and something for every member of the family. Activities begin at 5:00 p.m. Stephen Cochran will take the stage at 7:30, with fireworks beginning at dusk.
Admission to the event is free, but donations will be accepted to benefit Thanks USA, a non-profit organization that provides post-secondary, need-based educational scholarships to children and spouses of active-duty U.S. military personnel.
