Thousands expected to turn out for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Benefit Concert in Kingstree, South Carolina on Oct. 21, 2007.

Jacob Timmons & Randy Parton benefit concert expected to be huge hit in Kingstree, South Carolina, October 21, 2007!

Kingstree, South Carolina October 1, 2007 Since the September 11th press release which announced news of the Free Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Benefit Concert starring Jacob Timmons, Randy Parton and a special video remote appearance by the queen of country music Dolly Parton, excitement and anticipation has taken over the Carolinas from top to bottom. Cherry Grove to Charleston, South Carolinians are making plans to attend this fantastic event.
Never has there been so much excitement to fill the air. Maybe it’s because the event will feature an exclusive video remote by Dolly Parton and the people of South Carolina really are excited about having Dolly’s Imagination Library in their communities for their children.
Thanks to a media blitz including internet marketing, print media, radio media and television media such as an exclusive interview with Dolly Parton, the effort of local man, Jacob Timmons along with his friends the Partons, as well as Kingstree Mayor Jim Kirby and Pig Pickin’ director of events Mike Kirby seem to be paying off Big Time! From local news papers to national print publications, from public television and radio to national broadcast stations, everyone is talking about this exciting news worthy event that’s taking place at the Kingstree Recreation Park in Kingstree. SC.
Local businesses and major corporations are all jumping onboard to help raise awareness for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program so that it can soon become a reality for all children of South Carolina!
“I am so happy to hear the buzz around South Carolina about this benefit concert” said producer, Jacob Timmons, “I am certain that the event will be a complete success thanks to the great entertainment provided by Randy Parton’s Entertainment Group as well as the unequaled local dedication by Mike Kirby & Mayor Jim Kirby. I just can’t tell you how good it makes me feel to know these community-involved gentlemen, along with many other wonderful people in the area have stepped up to the plate and taken this idea full speed ahead!”
More on Timmons interview:
When Timmons was asked why he chose Kingstree, SC as the location for the first annual Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Benefit Concert, he responded “It’s the ONLY option as far as I am concerned! It’s my hometown, where I was born and raised, and I feel that since I have been blessed with such a great opportunity to help give back to my community, I absolutely must give it me best, regardless of what it will take to make this happen and you know it doesn’t hurt to know that an added benefit of all of this is that I am sure this will make my mama proud!”
During our interview, Timmons continued to reminisce of when he and his family were hard working farmers in rural areas outside of Kingstree city limits. It seems even though the days of farming and working at their family ran market “Timmons’ Produce” were many times hard, to say the least, Timmons wouldn’t want it any other way.
“I know that my work ethic and love of family and community are all because of the way my parents and grandparents raised me. There were MANY days that I absolutely hated farming and could wish for nothing else than to leave those fields and never look back. Well it’s 10 years this year that I have been in Tennessee (almost 7 hours away fro those fields) and honestly, I just can’t wait to get home now. It’s everything I can do to drive the speed limit once I get off that interstate simply because I am so excited to see my family and catch up on the goings-on. I see now and only now that being raised by a farming family that always struggled to make ends meet did in fact make me a stronger man and for that I am thankful. Now with this opportunity I have, I want to call on the community of Kingstree, SC to show the rest of the nation what we are all made of. I mean really, this event will get national attention and I want everyone to see that if we can come together and make this happen for our community then it will be known that with a little perseverance and effort anyone in the country can do the same thing for their hometown, so come on Kingstree, let’s set the bar!”
