ABOUT ABOUT

The 55th season kicks off with new emcee and band leader Rick Henderson, a Paint Valley Jamboree regular. Henderson has been performing since the age of 11 when he first sang the Hank Williams classic, “Your Cheatin’ Heart” at a VFW picnic in his hometown of Xenia, the news release said.

“The lights came up on the Paint Valley Jamboree for the first time on Feb. 27, 1965, when James Sweeney and Lou Harris formed a partnership to bring a live country and western show to the old Paxton Township Hall (also known as the Bainbridge Opera House),” the release said. “The jamboree grew wildly in popularity with its mix of local talent and Nashville’s up and coming stars of the time: Waylon Jennings, Dottie West, Merle Haggard, Connie Smith, Johnny Paycheck, Minnie Pearl, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Little Jimmy Dickens, Porter Wagnoner and many more.
