Join Chicks With Hits For An Acoustic Guitar Pull

Terri Clark, Pam Tillis and Suzy Bogguss sit down in Clayton for a good, old-fashioned acoustic guitar pull at The Clayton Center on Thursday, October 19, at 8 PM. The Chicks With Hits bring us their best-loved songs from their legendary careers.

You might be asking, “What’s a guitar pull?” The guitar pull is a southern tradition where a small group of musicians sits around and takes turns playing songs on a guitar. The “pull” part comes from the assumption that there was only one guitar among the group, so one may have to “pull” it away from another musician to get a turn.

It’s not likely that these Nashville stars will be pulling guitars from one another, but they will be pulling out all the stops to bring us an entertaining and memorable show. We expect tickets for this show to sell quickly, so get yours early. Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, September 6, at 10 AM.

Celebrate July 4th At Municipal Park

July 4th activities are the hottest ticket in town this Tuesday! Join Clayton Parks & Recreation for the decades-old Independence Day Celebration in Municipal Park on West Stallings Street in Downtown Clayton.

Activities start at 4 PM, and much of the fun is free – there will be free family field games, free ice cream, free watermelon, a free hose-down by the Clayton Fire Department, a free concert and, of course, free fireworks!

Other activities (available at a cost) will include food vendors, a cornhole tournament, inflatables and fair rides, bingo and raffles throughout the night. The fireworks shoot off at dark and often the live music, inflatables and rides will run another half hour after the show. That way, you can have more fun instead of sitting in traffic.

If you want to see all the fireworks – more shells than we’ve ever had before – and be in the middle of all the fun, be at Municipal Park on July 4.
