A dousing downpour didn’t deter the fans of Cape grad and country music star Jimmie Allen as he played before a sold-out crowd at the inaugural Bettie James Fest Aug. 7 at Hudson Fields.

The name of the festival was a tribute to his late father James and his grandmother Bettie Snead.

The Academy of Country Music New Male Artist of the Year was joined by a lineup featuring Allen’s friend, Smyrna native and country star Chuck Wicks; J.J. Rupp Band; DJ Jazzy Jeff, former star of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”; and Georgia rock group Hero the Band.
