James Monroe to sell Bluegrass Music Hall after 2 years

There are 5 comments on the Alabama Live story from Nov 29, 2007, titled James Monroe to sell Bluegrass Music Hall after 2 years. In it, Alabama Live reports that:

“But I'm doing about 25 festivals a year throughout the nation, and I was running the music hall myself, and you just can't do both”

The son of the late bluegrass legend Bill Monroe is selling the music hall he opened two years ago near the Tennessee state line, saying the duties of running the venue conflicted with his own musical career. via Alabama Live

I hope who ever buys the Bluegrass Hall keeps having country music entertainment there. Me and my family really enjoyed the 2 shows that we went to there. We like the Traditional country music as well as bluegrass. Thanks.

I sure hope somebody will run that place. It is an excellent place for the traditional country music people like the GREAT GENE WATSON. I saw him there 2 different times and it is within driving distance for me.

It has been under the ownership of Dwight Dillman for almost two years. Dwight has had the place up for sale about 6months. The shows that are hosted there are trying to raise money to buy it undercontract. I believe the downpayment is about $500,000. The music park is in great condition. Dwight has done a great job keeping the place up. As has the whole Dillman family. xx
