The information for 1999 Homecoming I think is very interesting. Billy Rae Cyrus and his daughter were there amongst the other big names. Billy Harlan. Phil and Don sang more this year which is what they were all hoping for.

The photo of Phil pointing his finger...that is a great photo. I am thinking he could be saying "Hey you at the back you are not singing in harmony" !!!! LOL

I would love to be at one of the Fan Nights when they all met up from all over the world, how fantastic would that be?

Thank you ever so much for finding such an amount of information Chris.

Now I know that my favourite picture of Don (where he's breaking into a big laughter) is taken during the press conference of HOMECOMING XI in September 1998!




And even so Lizzie's question is answered, why he has a bandage on his hand? The news article said that he hurt his hand when he fell while jogging. His right hand was bandaged up so he had a hard time playing the guitar.

Great information Chris. I only have time to skim through it at the moment but will read it all later. Interesting to see Billy Ray Cyrus with Miley who is now all grown up and did a great job supporting Ariana Grande at the One Love concert on Sunday.

Starting to build the Museum in Central City, a new museum opened next door earlier in the year. Mike (MeFloody) went to it several weeks ago.




Museum in Central City

Margaret Everly received a donation from the Homecoming concert for the Museum. See photo above in the Homecoming 2002

Inside the Museum, Carmel Rich has now moved on but the new guy in charge Mike said he couldn't do enough for them. What a great experience to go and see everything in the museum. So much to see and not all Everly things, there are other Kentuckians with their music related stuff too.

If you look in the display cases in the above photos, there are 2 with a navy blue Tee shirt in and placed on them are 2 tiny collectable guitars, what a nice touch in the cases. Each year of the Homecoming concerts there was a colour theme, hence the different coloured things in cases. If any have read all the Homecoming posts one year it was yellow and black, including cups, Tee shirts etc. Don held a Tee shirt up to his chest and said "Killer Bee"

MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KENTUCKY - Muhlenberg County is part of the Western Coal Fields region of Kentucky, where Don Everly was born (in the town of Brownie) and where many of the Everly family still reside. As of the year 2000, the population was 31,839. The county is named after Peter Muhlenberg. Its county seat is Greenville, Kentucky. The two primary geographic features of Muhlenberg County are the Green River and Lake Malone. The 300-mile-long Green River is a tributary of the Ohio River. It provides a commercial outlet for goods (primarily coal) to be shipped from the county to the major trade centres along the Mississippi River. Muhlenberg County and the Green River will forever be linked in the minds of many by the John Prine song ‘Paradise’ (recorded by the EBs), about a (now defunct) coal-mining town in Muhlenberg County. Spanning 788 acres near the small town of Dunmor in southern Muhlenberg County, Lake Malone (where Don Everly once owned the Lake Malone Inn – see entry above) provides a locale for water recreation such as swimming, boating, and fishing. Lake Malone and the surrounding hardwood forest form Lake Malone State Park.

MUHLENBERG COUNTY MUSIC AND HISTORY MUSEUM – The museum opened Friday 30th September 2011 in Central City and is located at the Central City Tourist and Convention Commission Office at 208 N. First Street, Central City, Kentucky. It features memorabilia of famous Muhlenberg County musicians such as The Everly Brothers and Merle Travis and Dave Rich. The museum has a 1953 AMI jukebox that plays all the tunes from the 1950s and 1960s. A photo exhibition of the artists that have performed at the Everly Brothers Homecoming Festival from 1988 till 2002 is displayed in the concert room. Don Everly visited the museum 15th September 2011, before its grand opening, and according to the director of the city’s tourism office, he was really happy to see that the museum was up and going and that a large amount of memorabilia has been preserved. .







This is such a colourful photo to go with The Everly's Rock & Roll Cruise in and car show for Labor Day:







Saturday on The Square featuring "Now and Foreverly" July 23rd 2016

http://www.kentuckytourism.com/events/details/saturdays-on-the-square-featuring-now--foreverly/79179/
After the untimely death of Phil Everly in 2014, Matt and Jeff decided that a tribute was due. They created "Now and ForEverly": The Everly Brothers Tribute to pay homage to two of music's most prolific pioneers. The best is yet to come.....
