Country artist puts on show for community

A former Alread musician put on a show for his old community on July 6.

Michael Turner, formerly of Alread, and his Turner Country Band played after the fireworks show. They sang from the time the fireworks were over until 1 a.m. Everyone had a great time listening, dancing and singing along. Turner has written several songs. He also wrote some with Brandon Witt and they sang a couple together. Keith and Nathan Witt also joined in singing on stage.
