William Michael Morgan at Jefferson City Jaycees Fair

Arts & Entertainment A fresh young talent whose music is steeped in country music tradition, William Michael Morgan is a singer and songwriter who was too young to order a beer when he made his first steps toward Nashville stardom. Morgan was born in Vicksburg, Mississippi on May 13, 1993. His parents enjoyed classic country music, and by the time he was six, Morgan was a Marty Robbins fan, fascinated with a song he'd heard around the house. By the time he was nine, Morgan had his first guitar, and spent much of his free time teaching himself to play songs by Keith Whitley and Mark Chesnutt, sometimes checking out instructional videos online when he had trouble figuring out licks. When Morgan was 12, inspired by seeing a Dierks Bentley concert, the youngster began playing out in public, and soon formed a band with local pickers -- most old enough to be his father -- that performed in Vicksburg and the surrounding area on weekends. In 2006, 13-year-old Morgan and his band independently released an album, Always Country, and he wor… City: Jefferson City. Tuesday, July 26, 2016, 9:00 PM – 11:00 PM.

The LACS which is the famous short abbreviation of the Loud Ass Crackers are from the sandy dirt roads of Baxley, Georgia. A South Georgia town more famous for its sawmills and turpentine stills than for having a successful southern rap group. The LACS consist of hip hop artist Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe and lead vocalist / guitarist Brian “ Rooster” King. With a blue collar background they have worked shutdowns with the union and framed many a house to earn enough money keep their music dreams alive. The LACS' latest album is still in the works but already has created a buzz with its contributions from Average Joe recording artist Colt Ford on the song “Shindig” and allowing the LACS the privilege of per… City: Jefferson City.

The Civilian Conservation Corps in Missouri State Parks: A Lasting Legacy

Community Events During the Great Depression of the 1930s, with unemployment approaching 25 percent, masses of people were out of work and families were suffering. To address the underlying economic problems, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created a variety of government relief programs. Just 37 days after he signed the Emergency Conservation Work Act of 1933 the federal government recruited 250,000 men between the ages of 18 and 25, placed them in Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camps and began work on an assortment of construction and conservation projects. Within one year, Missouri had more than 4,000 men working in the state parks system. The rustic style of architecture that was the hallmark of the CCC’s park development projects is still the standard in state parks and many of their structures remain in use today. John Cunning, director of Resource Management and Interpretation Programs for Missouri State Parks, will highlight the work of the CCC in the state and explore the legacy left by these young men.
