On Saturday, Sept. 7 there wasn't a cloud in the sky as country artists rocked the stage to raise more than $150,000 for local Kentucky charities. Performances and appearances included Lee Brice, Troy Gentry, Halfway to Hazard, Keith Anderson, Gary Chapman, Larry Cordle, Christian Kane, Brian Nutter, Ray Scott and Monster Energy Freestyle Motocross team.

22,000 people were in attendance for Saturday's concert at the secluded amphitheater at Abner Farm in Crockettsville, Ky. The natural amphitheater is located just outside of Chad Warrix's hometown of Jackson, Ky. and its natural setting in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains made for a perfect spot to enjoy a night of country music.

On Sunday, September 8 more than 300 participants geared up for a thrilling ATV ride through the rugged Kentucky terrain. With 42 miles of dust, mud, creeks and hills, participants navigated their way through the Appalachian terrain in this annual post-concert tradition.

In total over the past 6 years, Crockettsville has raised $725,000 for Kentucky charities. Dates for the 2014 Crockettsville Charity Concert & Trail Ride will be announced in coming weeks.
