If famous Mike Amos says it’s true, it’s got to be true.

So, it’s true that there’s no singer to equal Pike County’s own Sheila Jackson. And when Jackson and her Friends come together, there’s no better musical entertainment anywhere.

“And, Shelia’s Christmas Concert each year opens the Christmas season in Pike County,” Amos said. “I look forward to it each year as I have back so many, many others,” Amos said. “Shelia and her friends have been opening the Christmas season here in Pike County in a big way for 18 years. I can’t wait until Friday night when Shelia and her friends bring Christmas to town in a big way.”
