Who remembers the True Value/GMC Country Showdown? Those were the days. In the 90s, that was the precursor to Goldie's Survivor and the Battle for the Big O.

The rich, deep well of talent in this area has been on full display for three decades. And we watched all play out before us on the stage at the Yellow Rose of Owensboro.

I emceed many a True Value Country Showdown and it was a blast, a GREAT memory of the Yellow Rose.

I remember when Charlie Mattingly would have his good buddy and country music legend, Vern Gosdin, come and perform.

And I remember seeing that parking lot absolutely PACKED on Friday and Saturday nights.

So, what's it going to become now? I ask because we may find out sooner rather than later as it is now officially on the market.

I'm anxious to find out what happens next.
