Rene’ Hicks, a nationally known comedian , was diagnosed in 2001 with lung cancer. Her lungs had the characteristics of a long-time smoker, but Rene’ never smoked a day in her life.

Just thought we would share some photos of the stage being set for tomorrow's Taste of Country concert at Ellis park. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at eventbrite. Eric went out to Ellis Park and snapped a few shots as well as shot some video of everything being setup.
The days are counting down until the Taste of Country concert on Saturday and we're getting excited. We can't see Josh Turner, Josh Thompson, Casey James, Glen Templeton and local band Straight Laced take the stage at Ellis Park. In case you haven't done so already, there's still time to purchase tickets online from Eventbrite. Since this is the first year, we figured it would be nice to share a few things to know for the event. With that, read on to find our survival guide for Taste of Country!
