Why I LOVE Fordsville Days and the Community

Fordsville Days is one of my absolute favorite festivals in the area. The festival coordinators know how to throw a party. I love spending time with the amazing residents in town. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly in Fordsville. They make me feel like I'm back home in Northern Michigan with their down-home hospitality. Come to Fordsville Days and you'll feel welcome too! And, I promise that you'll have as much fun as I always do.

2017 Top 24 American Idol finalist, Layla Spring will take the stage. She is a staple at Fordsville Days before and after her Idol experience. She's never forgotten those that believed in her all along her journey. She is a fan favorite and sure to bring in a nice crowd.

Also, Saturday Kentucky Music Hall of Fame member Marty Brown will take over the main stage. The Maceo native hit the county music scene in the 90s' and produced six studio albums during that time. He also competed on Season 8 of America's Got Talent and advanced to the semi-final rounds. His newest album American Highway was released in 2019. Marty always dominates the stage and it will be no exception when he comes to Fordsville Days.

As if that isn't enough incredible music to enjoy on Saturday, Fordsville Days is bringing back Rayla Ray by popular demand. On June 30th Rayla will release her brand new music video for "Cage" in Nashville. She has so many shows booked all over the country, so what a treat to have her perform for the festival.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
