SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. – The proverbial stage is set and everything is in place for the Jenny & Ashley concert and video shoot at Wilderness at the Smokies resort in Sevierville, Tenn. Those attending the concert should plan to be at the “Wild WaterDome” indoor waterpark by 7 p.m. Saturday evening July 16, 2011. The concert/video shoot will begin promptly at 8 p.m. and is scheduled to last approximately 90 minutes.
All resort guests – and those who obtained tickets to this special event last week – should make plans to be at the entrance to the indoor waterpark by 7 p.m. Although ALL tickets for this show are now gone (please do NOT show up if you do not have a ticket to this event or a room booked at Wilderness at the Smokies for the night of July 16), those who want to see the rising music and television stars perform will get a second chance when they perform at Smokies Stadium on Wednesday evening, July 20, 2011 as the Smokies take on the Carolina Mud Cats.
Jenny & Ashley will meet fans and sign autographs after the Wilderness at the Smokies concert and after the Smokies baseball game. Fans who bring a pair of gently used shoes to donate to Soles4Souls (a charity that provides footwear to those in need) will get special access to Jenny and Ashley during the meet-and-greet following the show.
Jenny (15) and Ashley (14) Cooke are originally from Wisconsin, but moved to Pleasanton, Calif. when they were in elementary school. The sisters discovered their talents early while performing in a number of theatre productions and quickly made the move to acting and modeling. Jenny appeared as a model and cover girl for Kohl’s television and print advertising and also started acting. Ashley quickly caught the bug too, and modeled for both Levi’s and Kohl’s in television and print advertising. They followed their dreams to Los Angeles, where Jenny and Ashley picked up television work with both Disney and Nickelodeon.
Realizing their love and passion for music, the girls switched gears and headed to Nashville. Jenny & Ashley caught the eye of some very important players in Nashville and soon found themselves in-studio recording their first EP. The EP, “Songs About You,” has songs the girls wrote as well as great songs from famous Nashville writers. Darran Smith, Tim McGraw’s co-producer and lead guitarist, produced the entire product and Tim’s band, The Dance Hall Doctors, tracked every instrument you hear on the EP. “Songs About You,” available now on iTunes, is an upbeat pop/country album which includes the song “Indescribable,” co-written by Ashley, that is receiving national radio airplay.
Following in the footsteps of Disney superstars Miley Cyrus (“Hannah Montana”), Selena Gomez, and the Jonas Brothers, Jenny and Ashley Cooke are skyrocketing to stardom. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see them perform up-close and live.
