Singer/Songwriter Paul Thorn
Paul Thorn

Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits (and some of the actual people) who nurtured the young Elvis generations before, Paul Thorn has rambled down back roads, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national television, signed with and been dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine among many others, and made some of the most emotionally restless yet relatable music of our time. With 20 years of writing, touring, and entertaining under his belt, he shows no sign of slowing down with his new record, ‘Don’t Let the Devil Ride,’ breaking genre barriers and topping charts, putting a new twist on his already-entertaining live show.

On May 29, 2021, Paul Thorn will bring is unique style of entertainment to the Coal Fest Stage, along with the River Dan Band, Kerry Gilbert Band, Jordan Denton Band and Handshake Promise. Be sure to get there early and enjoy the food, arts and crafts, motorcycle ride, horseshoe tournament and Car Show. Coal Fest is back and better than ever tis year and you don’t want to miss it!
