Bill McCallie's annual thank-you to fans and supporters of his weekly radio show, "Cowboy Jubilee," is set for Sunday, Nov. 18.

Again this year, McCallie and his band, In Cahoots, will host The Dismembered Tennesseans and guest artists who have a history with the bands. Retired member Ansley Moses will make a guest appearance with The Dismembered Tennesseans. In Cahoots will make room onstage for Doug Barron, from the Bluegrass Pharaohs, and Roy Curry, who recently won his third National Flatpicking Championship. Catie Campbell will be the guest vocalist.

The two-hour concert starts at 5:30 p.m. in Ackerman Auditorium at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale. The middle portion of the show will be broadcast live on the campus radio station, WSMC-FM 90.5, in its regular time slot, 6-7 p.m.

McCallie said he started the live show 19 years ago to celebrate completing his first year on the air. The annual celebration of country, Western and bluegrass music usually draws a full house.

"A couple of times, we've had to seat some people on the stage," he said. "We just make room for everybody."

Admission is free. A reception will follow in the lobby with cat-head biscuits (named for their size) and homemade pear preserves.
