    Kudos to “The Shed” at Smoky Mountain Harley-Davidson. In addition to the preview of Dale Watson show there, the Daily Times article also had previews of imminent shows there from JP Harris and the Tough Choices, Mike Stinson, and Tim Carroll. Not too shabby for Mayville, TN (or anywhere else, for that matter).
