Guthrie, OK. The Red Horse Corporation, in association with Overland West Entertainment, has selected

Guthrie as the taping location for the pilot of a new TV series: THE BLUEBONNET JAMBOREE.

 

The program is a return of the traditional country music of the 1950’s and 60’s, in the format of a live

stage show that combines singing with traditional country comedy and dance groups.

 

Organizers said the pilot was originally scheduled to be taped in Moab, Utah, due to that area’s high

tourism traffic, but, Guthrie was chosen instead, due to the lobbying efforts of Saddle Up Cinema, a local

production company that has been hired to handle the event filming, and too, due to the amount of

talent in Oklahoma.

 

The pilot episode features the talents of America’s Singing Cowboy, Ben Stafford Rodgers, along with

Hank Thompson’s Brazos Valley Boys, as well as some of Oklahoma’s own up and coming artists.

 

The producers intend to use the program as a showcase for classic country artists, as well as assisting

new artist that have been demonstrated the ability to perform classic country music on a professional

level.

 

The show is set to be taped in the Guthrie Jr. High Auditorium, 705 E. Oklahoma, on Sat. Oct. 15, at

7:30p.m. Tickets are available at the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce and are priced at $12 each or 2 for

$20.
