SOUTHAVEN, MS (localmemphis.com)--If you are looking to hear latest tunes from your favorite country artists, Delta Country Jam is just days away. 

The festival moved from Tunica to Southaven, and some of the businesses of Southaven are hoping that some of the thousands that come in for Delta Country Jam will stop and check them out.

Fillin Station is just right across the street from Snowden Grove. Manager, Liz Eason, hopes that as crowds pour out of the arena, they will come to Fillin Station.

"It's going to be non-stop as soon as the thing is over. I believe that ends around 11, and we are open till 2 and plus you can hear it from our patio," said Eason.

Eason says they have ordered more beers and liquors, and they even plan on adding a fireball whiskey bar to their patio. They also will bring in more staff.

"In addition to our full staff here we are bringing other from other Fillin Station on Church Hill Road so we are bringing from there and we have a few volunteers working the door and bouncers and stuff that are gonna be here so like our staff and a half," said Eason.

The excitement isn't just at Fillin Station. Some concert-goers think Snowden Grove might be a better fit.

"I think that it's a very good thing that it's moved from tunica to Southaven because this area has built the arena to house such big artist that you can enjoy it from the front row to the very back of the lawn," said Erika Avant.
