Quincy, Florida native Billy Dean headlines tonight at the Florida Folk Festival

By

Grammy Award-winning country artist from Quincy, Florida, Billy Dean is headlining the mainstage at the Florida Folk Festival in White Springs at 10 p.m. Dean has snagged thirteen top 10 hits in his career. Though he grew up in the Panhandle he now lives in Tennessee. Yesterday before packing up to head to the state’s official folk festival his family headed to the basement because of all the severe weather heading across the Midwest. He talked with Donna Green-Townsend by phone about the storms and what he has in store for tonight’s performance in White Springs at the Stephen Foster State Park just north of Lake City.
