Amid the predictions of doom and gloom that surrounded Floyd County and Southwestern Virginia this weekend, life went on nonetheless for standards like The Friday Night Jamboree in downtown Floyd.

Dancing and a good time came to fans who ignored the warnings and trekked out to the Floyd Country Store on a wet Friday night to see and hear The Kuntry Store Band and Mac Traynham and his Mac Attack.

On Saturday, fans found music at American Afternoon at the Country Store and The Southern Gentlemen at Wildwood Farms General Store.

Sunday brings jam sessions at the Floyd Country Store and at Wildwood.

The general consensus: Hell no, we won’t stay home.
