Bellamy Brothers and Mark Chestnutt Coming to Drew County

Chicot Memorial

DREW COUNTY, AR (Ben Caxton) — Entertainment for the 62nd Annual Bradley County Arkansas Pink Tomato Festival have been announced. Coming to town this year as headliners for the event are the Bellamy Brothers who will take the stage on Friday, June 8th and Mar Chestnutt who will be appearing the next day on Saturday, June 9th. The Bellamy Brothers are probably the most successful duo in country music history. Brothers, Howard and David Bellamy, natives of Florida, consistently climbed into the upper reaches of the Billboard charts during the 80s and racked up a string of top ten singles in the early 90s including the soft rock classic “Let Your Love Flow”. Chesnutt has had 14 No. 1 hits, 23 top ten singles, four platinum albums and five gold records. His more traditional country hits include “It’s A Little Too Late,” “Too Cold At Home” and “Bubba Shot the Jukebox.”. The Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival is one of the oldest continuous running festivals in the state of Arkansas. Farmers there have been raising tomatoes for sale since the 1920s. They chose a variety of tomato that would ship well if picked when the tops of the fruit just barely turned pink. The festival was first held in 1956, and this expects to see some 35,000 visitors.
