Once again the Adair County Marching Band has completed another masterful year competing against the most elite bands in Kentucky and the nation.

Besides being the best in Kentucky this year the band had Adair County, Kentucky up in lights last Saturday in Indianapolis on the biggest TV I've ever seen.

I think I can speak for everyone in attendance that to look up at that video screen and see children, grandchildren, kinfolk, friends, neighbors, and some of the hardest working young people in these parts was definitely a "tears of joy" moment.

Every citizen of Adair County who supports our band in any way including paying taxes should surely share in the glory that our band program brings to Adair County and South Central Kentucky. -Billy Joe Fudge

"It was even more exciting," writes Billy Joe Fudge, "to watch the action on the field and on the big screen at Lucas Oil Stadium. There's a choke in the throat, and, while few of us betrayed our emotions with eye-contact, it was evident that eyes were moist with Tears of Pride in the Adair County Marching Band," Libby Fudge took this photo on November 13, 2010.
