Wilder stayed to sign CDs and pose for pictures with annoying fans like me : )

You sell investors bags of bungles,
Some stuff you know is bound to fail,
And then make bets against the bundles
So you win big behind the veil!
You've set the world ablaze
So give yourself a raise
Add the folksy harmonica and there you have it--American as apple pie. Forbert varied the tempo with an acoustic set with just Clay and Steve on guitars. Of course there had to be some Jimmie Rodgers, the "father of country music" who is also from Meridian. Steve brought out Jimmie's priceless museum guitar (the one that says "Thanks" on the back) and played "My Carolina Sunshine Girl," "My Blue-Eyed Jane" and the hilarious "In the Jailhouse." The concert got rockin' with Born to Be Wild, as well as a version of Jailhouse Rock that "Elvis never did." And yes, he did perform "Romeo's Tune" his song that hit the Billboard Hot100 Chart at #11 in 1980. Forbert was nice enough to stay after the concert to sign CDs and he even posed for pictures!

Concert goers were given copies of this month's beautiful Legends Magazine with Meridian's lovely Sela Ward gracing the cover. For more pictures from this special Wilder/Forbert Sucarnochee Revue, please see Legend's facebook page.
