New sounds of the blues shake up W.C. Handy festival

We're singing the blues on day six of the W.C. Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival. First up, we're talking with the Executive Director of Henderson's Tourist Commission Kyle Arnett to hear how the annual event fits in with the region's tourism growth spurt. Our own Brianna Williams and Daniel Moore will give us a rundown on the acts we've heard -- and have yet to hear -- during this spicy week in the Tri-State's music scene. Finally, Reverend Peyton of the Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band gives us a call to tell us about his take on the blues -- and why he's bringing ammo to the festival.
