How do you fit more than 9,000 fans on a hot June afternoon and evening into one of the region’s leading recreation areas? Just sign one of the top acts in today’s country music, invite a strong set of rising national and local stars, partner with a few trusted friends and sell tickets. Jay Shell took a huge risk on the late spring weather and vacation season to assemble the 11th Rome River Jam — and it was the right move as a record crowd turned out for one of the smoothest concerts yet. Kane Brown — a Northwest Georgian himself, Riley Green and others sparked advance ticket sales of more than 8,000 in addition to a strong walk-up audience on Saturday.
