Lance Carpenter, a celebrated singer- songwriter behind Kelsea Ballerini’s smash #1 hit Love Me Like You Mean It, will be hosting the Southern Sounds produced 2nd Annual “Music on the Mulberry” in Ozark, AR June 17th and 18th. The two-day festival will include duel stages showcasing local, regional and national acts. “I’m honored that we have been presented with the opportunity to do this festival again,” says Lance Carpenter. “Last year, we only had twelve days to pull everything together after the cancellation of ‘Thunder on the Mountain.’ This community pulled together and it was a hit! I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have in store for 2016 as Southern Sounds will be announcing the full line up soon!” The inaugural event developed after the cancelation of the 2015 “Thunder on the Mountain,” a festival where Lance was scheduled to perform. Presented with the opportunity to move his hometown fan base to another location, this Ozark native met with Byrd’s Adventure Center owners and developed the first “Music on the Mountain” festival with the direction of Southern Sounds production. With less than two weeks to organize the event, Lance and the staff at Byrd’s Adventure Center successfully pulled together a line-up featuring 23 bands including Lance and his band, The Union, Keith Anderson, Kevin Fowler and Ricochet.
