Afterward, the Mack & Dyan Band will carry the boot-scooting’ until closing time. There will be a silent auction, featuring an autographed movie script, guitars, posters and paraphernalia. Dave Goodwin, President of DMi, shared, “An active non-profit relies on community support, and the 25th anniversary of PURE COUNTRY is a perfect opportunity to raise funds for the revitalization of downtown Mansfield and give attendees an opportunity to hear great music plus meet the songwriters, scriptwriter, and some of the cast.” Playwright and screenwriter Rex McGee, author of the PURE COUNTRY movie, will share stories about the cast and production of the movie.
