Southern Ohio country singer Donna Cunningham and the D.C. Fever Band headlined the event, which included performances by young artists such as Bridget Reynolds, Jay Walker and Jesse Crawford.

Additional performers included Katie Lester , Uncle Dan and the Pure Country Band.

Dwayne Adkins, lead guitar; C.J. Adkins, drums; Bobby Moore on steel, Kim Browning on bass, and Joe McComas on fiddle make up the jamboree house band which entertained dancers during the evening.

The Jamboree’s TV namesake was hosted by Dean Sturm and aired Saturday nights at 7 p.m. Ashland Oil was the long time sponsor.
