Recording artist to celebrate holidays at Colfax home
Emma Jacob to present annual Christmas show Sunday night at theater
Black River Music Group recording artist Emma Jacob will celebrate the holiday season with a special show at the historic Colfax Theater starting at 7 p.m. on Dec. 14. Jacob is returning home from Nashville to present her third annual Christmas spectacular. She has invited some special friends from Nashville to join her on stage. Joining her will be Parallel Recording artist Jeremy McComb as well as Kate and Kacey Copolla. McComb, whose current single on the charts is “Cold,” has been opening for “Larry: The Cable Guy.” He and Jacob have just released a single, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” for the holiday season. The single is available on I-tunes. Joining Jacob on stage during the second act will be Big Machine recording artists Kate and Kacey Copolla from the CMT television show, “Can You Duet.” Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, ages 6 to 16. Seniors and children, age 5 and under, will be admitted free. Tickets can be purchased at Calamity Jane’s Confections, 7 No. Main Street or at the door. A portion of the proceeds will go to Penny Lane, a non-profit organization for abused, abandoned and neglected children. For the past year, Jacob has proven her commitment to radio and country fans across the U.S. Her career marathon kicked into high gear last winter with several national anthem performances, including the PapaJohns.com Bowl, the Outback Bowl and NASCAR at Watkins Glen. Those appearances were followed by several sellout tour stops opening for Jason Aldean, Billy Currington, Tracy Lawrence and Charlie Daniels. After performing a couple of acoustic numbers for him, WSM-AM air personality Bill Cody said, “That’s the most powerful voice we’ve heard in this studio in quite some time.” Jacob has been featured on CMT Insider, GAC Nights in a Radio & Records feature on hot independent artists and in country Weekly magazine’s “Who to Watch in ’08.” Throughout the tour, however, Jacob never forgot her roots in Colfax. “My annual Christmas show means he world to me,” she said. “No mater where I go, I can not wait until I get home for my holiday performance. I am so excited to have Jeremy, Kate and Casey come out. It’s going to be a great show.” For more information or to purchase tickets for the show, call 346-9149 or 346-2868.
