BamaJam Thursday Acts Delayed Due To Weather, Willie Nelson Cancels
BamaJam, the annual country music festival held near Enterprise, Alabama, kicked off its 2012 edition yesterday. But as AL.com reports, a strong storm that included heavy rain, hail, and high winds (which reached nearly 60 mph) caused the performances experienced a four-hour delay yesterday afternoon. The grounds were evacuated around 4:30pm, and fans were sent to wait it out in their cars and campers.
After several hours of safety checks and clean-up, word spread that the music would resume. The gates finally reopened at about 9pm, and the fans poured back in.
