Hoptown Throwdown Press Release


Hoptown Throwdown to Bring Southern Charm to Founder’s Square on July 12th

Hopkinsville, KY - June 21, 2024 – Get ready to kick up your heels and join Hopkinsville Parks and Recreation for the inaugural Hoptown Throwdown on Friday, July 12th, presented by HES EnergyNet. This exciting new addition to the downtown summer events series promises an evening packed with country flair and family fun at Founder’s Square.

Starting at 6 PM, attendees can immerse themselves in a celebration of all things Southern while enjoying live music from Nashville artist Court Taylor. Court and her band bring a unique blend of bluesy, gritty, and heartfelt alternative sounds to the traditional country music scene.

Raised in rural Georgia, Court Taylor fell in love with storytelling through music while dancing around her grandparents’ pool table. Her influences range from country legends like Hank Williams Sr and Loretta Lynn, to contemporary artists such as Brandy Clark, Chris Stapleton, and Miranda Lambert. Court discovered her voice and passion for singing and songwriting in 2020 while living in Tucson, Arizona, and has since captivated audiences at notable venues including The Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, Enmarket Arena, and Bobby’s Idle Hour in Nashville.

"We are thrilled to have Court Taylor bring her unique sound to Hoptown Throwdown," said Rachael Wolfe, Program Coordinator from Hopkinsville Parks and Recreation. "Her traditional country roots, with a modern twist, fit well with the theme of our new downtown event."

“Finger-lickin' good” food trucks including Kona Ice, G's BBQ, Chef Jamie's Foodtruck, and Nathan's Famous, will be on site for the event alongside Casey Jones Distillery and Forsque Industries with alcoholic beverages. Country-themed yard games such as stationary cattle roping, horseshoes, and cornhole will be available throughout the evening, offering friendly competition and entertainment for all ages.

Attendees are encouraged to bring out their best boots, hats, and lawn chairs to take in the full experience of Hoptown Throwdown on July 12th. Hoptown Throwdown is presented by HES EnergyNet and supported by Pennyroyal Center.
