Cybergrass Bluegrass Music News: Hazzard Nation Converges on the Blue Ridge Mountains Aug 13-14

Sperryville, VA — If you are driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia in mid August, don’t be surprised if you see scores of ‘General Lees,’ the orange 1969 Dodge Charger which has become the most recognizable car in the world. And don’t be surprised if you see a gal that looks like Daisy Duke, because Catherine Bach, who played Daisy in the hit TV series “Dukes of Hazzard,” will be there among the several thousand fans gathering for the First Annual ‘Hazzard Homecoming’ in Sperryville, Virginia.

Ben Jones, the former Congressman who is surely better known as ‘Cooter’ from the show, is presenting the event along with his better half, Alma Viator, who has become known to Dukes fans as simply “Miss Alma.”

The couple has propelled the Dukes’ craze to unbelievable heights. They own and operate two popular Dukes themed store/museums called ‘Cooter’s Place,’ located in Gatlinburg and Nashville, Tennessee. Fans have also demonstrated their love for the popular show through the years by gathering for an annual festival Jones and Viator created that began in Sperryville in 1999. Sperryville is nestled in bucolic and scenic Rappahannock County, adjacent to the Shenandoah National Park and the Skyline Drive.
