A play by Douglas PoteFeaturing the music of Jimmie Rodgers
All aboard for a ride that will follow the only man to influence the likes of Bob Dylan, B.B. King, Elvis Presley and Hank Williams as Jimmie Rodgers: America's Blue Yodeler is performed right here in the legend's hometown of Meridian. The show is a beautiful tale of a man who wanted it all - but was challenged through his entire, yet brief, career to keep it all. From the author who brought audiences Keep on the Sunny Side, the songs and stories of the original Carter Family, and Man of Constant Sorrow, the story that plays tribute to the careers of the Stanley brothers, Jimmie Rodgers: America's Blue Yodeler will take you on a journey with the Singing Brakeman - from his dreams through a career that changed the face of music forever. Produced as part of MCC's commitment to presenting programs that celebrate our region's rich history, we proudly partner with the Jimmie Rodgers Foundation to bring this show to life.
