Surround sound: Musical entertainment abounds around Central Louisiana

May 2, 2013 Full story: The Town Talk 14

There's more than enough fun to go around this weekend. The only question should be this: Stay in town or take a road trip? Leesville's biggest festival kicks off Friday at 5 p.m. with music by Sarah Beth Terry Bonner on the main stage.

Why does the City keep hiring that filthy mouth Sara Beth?...I've heard her dropping the N word and cussing like a sailor on shore leave...it's disgusting and horrible!...I won't be bringing my children down there while she's on stage!

The City has nothing to do with bookings for Mayfest.

It is the Vernon Parish Tourism and Vernon arts Council not the city.

Well I am glad that you are actually a parent who cares enough to keep their children away from people like you described. But I can not imagine Sara Beth saying the "N" word...cussing, yes...but out in a public family setting, I highly doubt it!

As a songwriter, I am proud of the several "n" words in my vocabulary: such as "negative", "neurotic", "nuts", & "nunya". I've been a performing artist for twenty five years and have yet to add any other words to my list that I wouldn't sing in public. But whatever. I guess it just goes to show that you can't please every body and I have no intention to do so. If you feel the need to skip my performance, feel free, but for the other 100,000 fans that love coming out To the shows and having a great time, we'll see you there with a bevy of new stuff that is sure to have you rockin'. See you at Mayfest!:) or not. Either way, we'll have a great time!

Most performers are aware of their audience and know to tailor their work accordingly.

It's so sad to see someone as talented and experienced as Sarah Beth get slammed by someone who's probably never been out of Vernon Parish their whole life. I've seen Sarah Beth perform several times, from bars to barbecues, and she's always been a riot and very considerate of her audience. Yes, she gets loud and rowdy when she plays in a bar, but I've also seen her at family oriented events where she gushes with poise and grace. So next time you feel like bad mouthing someone, make sure you have your facts straight or else just be quiet. If you don't like her, that's fine, but at least have the common decency to keep your nasty opinions to yourself. Sarah Beth, if you read this, we'll be there with bells on to hear you! We love you and your music and can't wait for an awesome show! ;)

I agree with LucyAnna. I think Sara Beth is awesome and I am so excited to see Mayfest recognize such incredible talent. The whole weekend looks to be amazing, so many talented performers! We'll be there, with kids in tow! Can't wait!!

Facts straight...ok, I've lived in 4 other Countries and have lost count on different states....Served in the Middle East, so yeah I have plenty of World experience, maybe you are the one needing an education? Like me saying twice I've been to see her and both times vulgar as well as the N word being dropped!...pretty open and clear statements...but to each their own, as I said while she's performing we won't attend with Children and I think it wise to know a little background on who you hire to perform...again clear statements! Do I honestly think she'll cuss and drop Nbombs there, highly doubtful! But that's my right to chose not to have kids present in case.

Ok, now. You've made your point. Would you please stop bad mouthin' her? You're sounding more like a pissed off redneck than a concerned citizen. Great for you for all the world traveling you've done. I served 25 years in the Army, been everywhere. But one lesson stayed the same everywhere I've been: if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. Personally I think it's kinda funny that you're all up in arms about her performing but you said you've been to see her sing...in a bar...twice. Just sayin'.

Ok how pointing that out is bad mouthing is beyond me and yes sir did say I'd been twice, 1st time was on off vulgar talk 2nd time was 10x's worse and N word being dropped resulted in us as well as others leaving so there ya go!.and yeah we go out for drinks on occasion, horrible I know...Thank you for your service by the way...25yrs is a long run.
