Reagan Boggs, Tim White, Kaitlyn BakerWaynesville, NC -- Country singers Kaitlyn Baker and Reagan Boggs will mingle with fans to raise money for a worthy cause in Waynesville, North Carolina, on Sunday, November 22. Baker and Boggs, both of whom are originally from Pound, Virginia, taped the nationally syndicated public television concert series “Song of the Mountains” last year. Their episode will premiere on the UNC-TV network throughout North Carolina on Sunday, November 22, at 6:00 p.m. It will air on PBS affiliates nationwide early in 2016.

The singers plan to host a viewing party at the Tap Room Sports Bar & Grill at the Waynesville Golf Club to help raise money for “Song of the Mountains.” The show’s host, Tim White, will also be in attendance. White, who also hosts the nationally syndicated “Tim White Bluegrass Show” on radio, has been hosting “Song of the Mountains” since 2005. The TV show is taped most Saturdays at the Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Virginia.

Baker has started to attract national attention, with the release of her songs “Burn” and “Coal Train,” the latter of which was included in the 2015 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards ZinePak, a 2-CD compilation featuring songs by superstars and emerging artists. Her most recent project is a new version of the classic holiday song “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”

Boggs’ 2014 album, Quicksand, emerged to 35 on the Americana Music Chart in its third week. Her songs have been likened to the writings of Darrell Scott, Dave Alvin and Buddy Miller. She has been referred to as a "Throwback Artist." Lee Zimmerman of No Depression compared her to such legendary singers as Loretta Lynn, Kitty Wells, Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris, describing her voice as "filtered through a mix of hard-wrought emotion and soothing sensitivity, the kind that breeds great balladry and stirs the senses simultaneously.” Wayne Bledsoe of the Knoxville News Sentinel wrote, "Reagan Boggs is exactly what modern country radio is missing."

The viewing party for the Baker/Boggs episode of “Song of the Mountains” will take place on Sunday, November 22, beginning at 5:00 p.m., at the Tap Room Sports Bar & Grill, 176 Country Club Dr, Waynesville, NC 28786. A donation of $5 is suggested, with all proceeds going to “Song of the Mountains.” Food and beverages will be extra. Admission will be on a first-come basis, until the venue has reached its capacity.
