We started our vacation with a trip to Powell, Missouri (just over the Arkansas/Missouri border). We spent the evening with some friends from Powell. This small town was the home of Albert Brumley, the famous songwriter. His songs include I’ll Fly Away, Turn the Radio On and many more. Brumley’s old home place and publishing company was the site of the July 4th festival and firework’s show. We had a great time with the folks from Powell.
