From Willie Jones’ Facebook

escribed by Rolling Stone Magazine as “the future of Country Music,” an an artist who has blended country and hip-hop in a unique style that is almost exclusive to him, the headliner for this year’s festival is Willie Jones. The same Willie Jones who first stunned judges on X-Factor in 2012 and has since been perfecting his hybrid sound, performing at festivals like Stagecoach (2021) and Lollapalooza (2022). The PENTHOUSE/ SONY recording artist & Warner Chappell songwriter is expanding the country music genre with his own signature sound and style. With new releases like Get Low Get High (part 2) which features Jon Batiste and Michael Todd, Jones is making a name for himself. His newest video release, ‘Bein Green,’ is Jones’ take on the classic. He posted on Facebook that “it’s a song some of us have known all of our lives, some have heard it in passing and for some of you this may be the first time. Enjoy my rendition of it and while listening remember you are loved and you’re alive. Self acceptance is major key.” Scrolling through the official social media channels of Willie Jones, one can tell that this musician is trying to be a positive influence on his audience. Between posting promotions for his work, Jones makes sure to include his own

personality with photos of him laughing in the studio, backstage at performances and fans get to see a glimpse at his stage style— and that stage style is impeccable. Between studded cowboy boots, cowboy hats, turquoise rings and graphic tees, Willie Jones is one cool dude. Don’t miss Jones on stage at Deep Roots — he will bring some twang, some fun and a whole lot of style. You can check out his songs on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music and wherever else you may listen to music.

Skin cancer is the most prevalent of all types of cancer, and early detection is the surest way to a cure. The Georgia Cancer & Skin Cancer Center’s dermatology experts can diagnose precancerous skin conditions, such as actinic keratosis, which, if caught early, can be removed or treated to prevent them from becoming skin cancers. Their dermatology providers can also diagnose and treat skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinomas and malignant melanoma. Once diagnosed, the skin cancers should be treated or removed based on the needs of the individual patient.

the union-Recorder: Tell me about how you got into music. David Wimbish with the collection: I grew up in a pretty musical family. My mom taught piano and lead a choir, and everyone - my three siblings and my parents - plays some sort of instruments and sings. We’d sing at night together sometimes, everyone doing layered harmonies just sitting around on the couch. I played my first show in my young teens and immediately felt such a connection between my own need for expression and the connection with others that came from that expression. I knew from that age that this was what I wanted to do. u-r: Describe the music you play in five words. dw: Joyful, vulnerable, real, poppy, melodic u-r: Do you have any pre-show (or postshow) rituals? What are they? dw: Before each show, we huddle around each other and take several deep breaths together. It’s a really important way for us to breath out whatever the day has brought and start

fresh for the show. Then we usually put our hands in together and to a preshow chant, usually picking something funny from the day to say. Sometimes, when we really need a boost, we’ll put on the Space Jam theme song and dance around the green room. u-r: We all know that COVID and quarantines affected everyone, especially artists. What did you do during the non-touring downtime? dw: To be honest, the first bit of that time was a lot of rest and discouragement - it felt like we were losing our careers in some ways. But after awhile, it was such a perfect breeding ground for new songs. I wrote and wrote and wrote, and we started working on songs online, from our separate homes. It’s been the beginnings of a lot of new material that we’re now actively getting recorded. u-r: Do you have a favorite song to play? What is it and why? dw: I think a lot of the band would say our song Becoming My Own Home. Something about the way it grooves just feels so good in our bodies. I love

Page 17

singing it. But lately, for me, it’s been our newest song, Sorry Baby. It’s just a lot of energy and emotion, sound grounded strength behind it. u-r: Who are some of your musical influences? dw: Ella Fitzgerald definitely had a giant influence on my singing, just how smooth her ability to go between high and low notes was. Some others between the band - Anathallo, Fun., Coldplay, Beach House, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats.

The Collection

u-r: What are the bands’ plans for the rest of the year? Anything new happening? dw: We have a lot of new music on the way which feels super exciting. Hoping to be in the studio in December recording a bunch of it! Otherwise, prepping for more tours, resting a bit, and getting ready for a crazy fun year next year. Threshing Floor

u-r: If you could plan a music festival who would be the headliners? (Dead or alive) dw: Kendrick Lamar, Paul Simon, and Brandi Carlile would be among my top choices - a bit of a range.

Mama Sorry Baby Becoming My Own Home

u-r: If you had one message to give to your fans what would it be? d-w: That we love you how you are, that it’s okay to not have everything or even anything together, and that we can work together to create a loving and more accepting future. u-r: What can Deep Roots attendees expect from your set? dw: We always bring our all to a set our honest selves, wherever we’re at, a lot of energy and jumping around and dancing, a lot of fun, and as much vulnerability as we can muster.

Ricky Ricky Ruckus Ruckus Richard Martin (aka Ricky Ruckus) is hosting the Locals Only stage this year at Deep Roots. Richard talked with us about his music as Ricky Ruckus and his set at the music festival this year. The Union-Recorder: Tell me about how you got into music. Ricky Ruckus: I grew up in Haddock, GA and my grandparents lived in Milledgeville. I started out like a lot of people around here, singing in church. Along with my family we sang often at Haddock Baptist Church and Mt. Olive Baptist Church. Mt. Olive was started and pastored by my grandfather Reuben Atchison. It was located for many years on 2nd street in the Hardwick community. I played in several bands coming up in this area. The first group was called Play Ok and that was in the early 2000s. Fast forward a few years and I eventually started a band called Free Lance Ruckus. We have been playing this area for about 15 years now and have just had the best time doing so. We play songs that i wrote as well as a wide variety of cover songs. When covid came around and the world shut down, the band took over a year off and i began playing solo shows as Ricky Ruckus. At my solo show, i usually play a good many more original songs. I am currently doing both solo and full band shows and i am very excited to come play at Deep Roots to play some of my new original music as well as some of the old favorites. U-R: Describe the music you play in five words. RR: Folky, fun, heart-felt, sincere, singable U-R: Do you have any pre-show (or post-show) rituals? What are they? RR: Breathe deep, relax, and try to keep my center low U-R: We all know that COVID and quarantines affected everyone, especially artists. What did you do during the non-touring downtime? RR: Wrote music during COVID and worked on building my solo set

Page 27

Page 19

U-R: Do you have a favorite song to play? What is it and why? RR: Right now my favorite song to play is Be Young Be Foolish by The Tams just because it has such a fun and happy singable melody U-R: Who are some of your musical influences? RR: Influences would be Bob Dylan, Sublime, Otis Redding, Merle Haggard, The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel U-R: Will you be playing original music, covers, a mixture? How do you decide which songs to perform? RR: Mixture of songs. I decide what i play by whatever song comes to my head next. I no longer make set lists U-R: If you had one message to give to your fans what would it be? RR: BE TRUE TO YOURSELF and “when you learn love, spread that love”

I got into music when I started playing around with the red standup piano in my home that still sits there to this day. Describe the music you play in five words. Do you write your own songs? If so, describe those songs in five words. The music I play in 5 words: “playing for you to feel.” Yes, I do write my own songs and one of those songs in 5 words? “4 moons in a row.” Do you have any pre-show (or post-show) rituals? What are they? “I believe their validity to be malleable in the artistic sense, buy yes I do have pre-show rituals. having a few crystals at my show is always a good thing, I thank God/the universe/whatever you wanna call it, for what’s happening, and then we get down to it, playing music, you know.. when you’re up there with other people, what that meditation really leads to is the ability to connect/disconnect with each other. That mindful music making is where the magic seems to be at, I love playing alone, don’t get me wrong, that’s an entirely different animal, but the ritual is all the same. Also, I always get a water, and some honey, just sit down at the bench, and breathe for a bit before I let my fingers touch the keys and my voice start to sing.

ocal Folk is a band comprised of Jim Chapman, Charlie Adams and Nic Goodson. Charlie Adams, one of the vocalists and guitarists for the band answered these questions for The Union-Recorder. The Union-Recorder: Tell me about how you got into music. Charlie Adams: I got into music in middle school. I knew some older kids who were in a band and I thought ‘damn these guys are cool, I wanna do that!’ U-R: Describe the music you play in five words. Do you write your own songs? If so, describe those songs in five words. CA: Acoustic interpretations of classics & hidden gems. In Local Folk we mostly play covers but Nic and I both spent many years writing original songs for various bands we were in. U-R: Do you have any pre-show (or postshow) rituals? What are they? CA: Typically...finish work for the day, make dinner for the wife & kids, load the gear into the truck and try to show up in time for soundcheck. Maybe have a cold drink before the show to set the mood. U-R: We all know that COVID and quarantines affected everyone, especially artists. What did you do during the non-performing in person downtime? CA: COVID sucked but I rather enjoyed the downtime with the family at home. We definitely missed playing live though. I traded some old gear, bought some new toys and worked on that ‘bedroom tone’ to span time. U-R: Do you have a favorite song to play? What is it and why? CA: Anything that Nic or Jim sings, then I get to focus on just playing the guitar. I

also enjoy songs that have vocal harmonies. Not that I’m that good at it, but I like trying. U-R: Who are some of your musical influences? CA: Probably easier to list who isn’t, but a short list for me would be The Rolling Stones, The Band, Tom Petty, Tom Waits, Eric Clapton, The Black Crowes, outlaw country, soul and motown - Otis Redding and Sam Cooke... I could go on and on. U-R: Will you be playing original music, covers, a mixture? How do you decide which songs to perform? CA: Mostly covers. We show up with 5 or 6 old setlists. We’ll try to pick 3 songs to start off with and then play it by ear. It’s fairly democratic. Everyone picks songs as we go and anyone can veto. U-R: If you could plan a music festival who would be the headliners? (Dead or alive) CA: Well that’s a loaded question. There are a lot of great performers out there playing now but if we’re talking resurrection I’d say... The Beatles, The Allman Brothers, Hendrix, Derek & The Dominos with Skydog, Sam Cooke, The Who, The Stones, The (Grateful) Dead, Alice Cooper (The Band), Led Zeppelin, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Booker T with Otis Redding, The Band... I mean I could go on but this is already looking like a 3 day event. U-R: If you had one message to give to your fans what would it be? CA: “Hey baby I love you. Be home soon.” U-R: What can Deep Roots attendees expect from your set? CA: About 50 minutes. But seriously, we are very excited and happy to play again. I think this will be our 5th or 6th year performing on the community stage. We’re

After two years met with unsuccessful hoping and fingercrossing, the Deep Roots Festival is set to return for its 19th edition next month. The Covid-19 pandemic played spoiler in 2020 and ’21, but all signs point to a full-on festival in the streets of downtown Milledgeville on Saturday, Oct. 22. “Everyone involved is very excited,” Deep Roots co-founder Jimmy Holder said. “There were a lot of ideas developed over the past two years and it feels good to finally be able to implement them.” Chief among those ideas is a new admission policy. Entry into the festival is free, which means attendees will pay nothing to browse the artist market, see the open car show, watch acts and performances on The Union-Recorder Locals Only Stage, and more.

“The free entry decision came from a few different factors, but we hope it offers more accessibility to the community,” said Holder. Charges do kick in for two key attractions — the main concert stage and KidZone. Families can get into the KidZone area for free, but unlimited passes must be purchased to enjoy the large collection of inflatables, rock climbing walls, velcro walls, and zip lines. Those passes are $10 for kids 6 and under and $15 for kids 7 and up. They can be purchased the day of the festival, and will be valid all day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This year the KidZone will be situated in the parking lot between Milledgeville City Hall and the Mary Vinson Memorial Library. The main concert stage featuring touring acts that have performed around the world will remain in its traditional space, the parking lot

Page 34

beside the post office. Concert tickets are $30 and are available exclusively online at right now. Headlining the main stage this year is Shreveport, La. native Willie Jones, whose unique sound blends hip hop and country. He’s played multiple large music festivals, appeared on both Jimmy Kimmel’s and Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk shows, and been featured in Rolling Stone magazine as well as on “Good Morning America.” Also playing the main stage is North Carolina-based group, The Collection. The seven-piece boasts an eclectic sound and millions of streams on Spotify. Adding a little local flavor is Champagne Lane. The Atlanta duo of Jackson Welch and Jake Rogers pull sounds and influences from multiple decades in creating their music. Welch and Rogers met while they were students at Georgia College & State University. They won the college’s battle of the bands in 2019 and have since recorded a live album at Athens’ Georgia Theatre. Deep Roots will be the Champagne Lane’s first time back in Milledgeville since graduating, so it will be something of a homecoming for them. “Keeping with the tradition, the concert stage headliners are chosen by their current trajectory,” Holder said. “These are bands that in a couple years’ time will be selling out their own tours and playing major slots in the international festival circuit. The concert stage is all about the energy and atmosphere. This year will be a party you don’t want to miss.” All concert stage tickets are general admission. Once purchased, they will be available for pickup beginning Monday, Oct. 10 at the Milledgeville Main Street office located at 105 E. Hancock St. between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. There are only 3,000 concert stage tickets available, so festival organizers encourage everyone to buy early. The admission policy is not the only thing that’s new to Deep Roots in ’22. What was formerly known as the community stage has been changed to the “Locals Only Stage” in an effort to spotlight the local music scene. Artists from this area will play the free-access stage throughout the day beginning at 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. when the main concert stage action kicks up. As in years past, food trucks will be out offering meals to hungry customers. Adding to the festival smells for the first time is a steak cook-off, which replaces the BBQ cook-off. The steak competition is a one-day event, whereas the BBQ one was three days, making it easier to enter. Links to register can be found online through, and the entry fee starts at $150. Steaks are provided by the festival, so contestants need only bring a grill and a great recipe. $2900 in cash prizes will be up for grabs, the biggest being $1,000 for best steak. The competition also includes best dessert and best margarita categories, though those entry fees are a separate $25. This is a sanctioned event through the Steak Cookoff Association. Rules and more information can be found through the Deep Roots website. Pre-pandemic, Deep Roots averaged attendance between 16,000 and 18,000 people, according to Holder. He and other organizers are hoping to at least be in that neighborhood again following the two-year hiatus. “I think there are a lot of people who are ready to celebrate Milledgeville and enjoy the outdoor fall festival offerings,” Holder said. “We have heard from many of our vendors from previous years and they have all said sales and attendance at other events have been at all-time highs. So, hopefully we can pick up where we left off.”

As a small businessman who was born and raised in Middle Georgia, Rick Williams has seen what makes our community so great. That’s why he lived here, worked here, and raised his family here his entire life. It’s why, as state Representative since 2016, he has been proud to champion conservative Middle Georgia values by backing the largest tax cuts. That’s also why he answered the call to service by running for state Senate District 25.
