A young up-and-coming musician from Roane County is scheduled to perform at the Tennessee Valley Fair on Saturday.
Thirteen-year-old guitar-player Joey Pierce and his band, the Joey Pierce Project, will open for the Southern Drawl Band.
“He’s like a 30-year-old trapped in a 13-year-old musically,” Joey’s mother, Monica, said. “I’m excited for him. I was really surprised they gave him the opportunity.”
