Hello there Friends and Fans. Truck Stop Poets has been chosen to represent the Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Society in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. We will be going the third week in January. There is considerable expense to this challenge and support would be greatly appreciated. You would not only support the Truck Stop Poets but the city of Fort Smith as well. Anything donated past the goal will be donated to the Riverfront Blues Society! Thank you for your support!
