Juliette Opry: What did he say their name was?

Well it’s that time again, The First of the month is rapidly approaching and that means Juliette Opry time. I have been really busy so unfortunately I don’t have any great story this month (like I ever have).

This month we have a group out of Athens: "Buttermilk Revival ",Winners of Athensn got Talent --Kind of an interesting group, the banjo player is actually my neighbors' cousin. I checked them out on Facebook and Youtube. They are going to be great, but I just couldn’t get that name out of my head. Who thought up "Buttermilk Revival?"

I once heard about a band that was formed at a bonfire with a lot of adult beverages called, "Burning Urine."

Although I didn't think it was a great idea , I figured out where it came from. Well I could have asked Jody but that takes all the fun out of it so here is the Lizella twist:
