Country music artist Jeff Bates will be the featured entertainment of the 2014 Rockin’ Railroad Festival presented by the Hazlehurst Area Chamber of Commerce this Saturday. Bates will appear as the final act around 6 p.m. Entertainment starts at 11 a.m.
Bates will be joined by By Faith, The Co-Lin Sojourners, 55 South, The Vamps, Equanya and the Smooth Funk Band and The Church Exalted. The event is free.
Bates, a native of Bunker Hill, Miss., began his career as a country music artist and rose into the top 10 of the charts with his song “The Love Song” reaching no. 8 in the mid-2000s. His music has transformed into more of a ministry in the past few years.
