Country singer Jackie Lee will be headlining at Winterville’s annual Watermelon Festival this weekend.
Lee said music has always been a part of his life thanks to his father.
“It wasn’t until I got into high school that I thought of music as work,” Lee said.
From 2014-16, Lee has had four singles, three of which made it onto the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Lee said he has never been to the Winterville area but he is excited to meet the people and enjoy some watermelon.
He said he hopes to bring energy to his performance Saturday.
“I have been opening for artists like Luke Bryan and they bring a lot of energy to the stage,” said Lee. “I want to bring that kind of energy and I want everyone to have a good time.”
