Main Street: Greeneville presents Lyrics on the Lawn Outdoor Concerts at the Dickson-Williams Mansion in the heart of historic downtown each Thursday evening in July beginning at 7:00 pm. No small undertaking this week with the threat of bad weather as organizers watched the weather pattern hour by hour. Everyone had faith that the first concert of the season would in fact take place on the lawn and take place it did. A damp lawn in no way dampened the spirits of the crowd. Now in it's second season the free concerts are family friendly. This week The Les Ford Band opened the evening followed by Daisi Rain.
