JACK & DIANE – Jack & Diane’s life plays out like a song we all know so well. As a married couple, the combination of their music and love for one another immediately resonates with an audience. Most refer to their music as a “bluesy, more soulful style of country.”  With her heaviest vocal influences being Artists like Bonnie Raitt and Stevie Nicks, one announcer told an audience that “Diane’s voice is as smooth as warm butter”. Jack, who formerly toured with Artists like George Thorogood and Brian Setzer, is revered as a tasteful and impressive guitar player/multi-instrumentalist.

Dani Carroll

Dani is revisiting her first love, Jazz, with a CD release this Spring. Dani has worked with such Nashville greats as David Malloy, producer for Reba McIntyre, Dolly Parton, and Mindy McCready; Mark Collie, a #1 charting country artist and songwriter; John Jarvis, two-time Grammy winning songwriter; and Skip Ewing, a Grammy nominated country artist and songwriter with over twelve #1’s to his credit.

Making the move to Nashville in 2002 and inking a deal with Famous Music Publishing, Dani continues to write songs with some of Music Row’s top talent. Her distinctive alto voice and awe-inspiring presence on stage makes her performances a memorable experience for audiences everywhere.

MASON DOUGLAS possesses a distinguished diversity, sounding like Chris Isaak with his signature, sexy falsettos; like Garth Brooks with his honesty & range; & others even say he’s ‘country music’s Rob Thomas’. Mason has: showcased at the Ryman Auditorium; opened for Trace Adkins, James Otto, & Jewel; continued radio airplay with the song “Home Free”; released his 2010 debut CD on Rural Rhythm Records.

JUSTIN ZIMMER – With his boyish grin, impressive vocals, and sought-after guitar chops, Justin is a memorable Artist that grabs the instant attention of the audience.

Thanksgiving Feast – Blairsville, GA

Since the nineteenth century early gold rush days near Dahlonega, GA., the hills in Blairsville were known for their purest gold.  Time and greed quickly gobbled up the precious mineral.  Yet, there is still gold in these mountains.  Located at the top of Georgia, the city of mountains with its motto “A Place for All Seasons” gives visitors an ah ha experience twelve months of the year.

Blairsville has a rich history of gold, Cherokee Indians, early settlers, and colorful autumns.  It acts as a passing reminder of the first Thanksgiving in 1621 when the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast.  Although, there have been changes throughout the centuries – struggles
and achievement – meshing the past into chronological events to review in history
books, the majestic beauty of the mountains remains the same.

This year begin a tradition of family gatherings in the mountains of North Georgia.  Meet family and friends at The Lodge at Copperhead and experience the blissful pleasure of the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Reserve your table today for the 2011 Thanksgiving Day Feast, November 24th from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.  The menu is available on the website or Facebook.  Also, check-out the “To Go” Deep-fried Cajun Turkeys.  “Reservations
