2009 SIGNATURE EVENT... LAKE MARTIN, ALABAMA
To say that the 2009 Signature Event was a success would be a monumental understatement! An estimated 4,000 boats and 35,000 people showed up for what was by far the biggest single AquaPalooza celebration yet, featuring a concert by country superstar Alan Jackson and up-and-coming artists Matt Stillwell, the Carter Twins, Caitlin and Will, and Jypsi.
Boats were packed bumper to bumper for more than a mile, and many fans donned their inner tubes and water noodles to paddle close to the water-pit at the bottom on the stage. Jackson pulled up to the dock at Russell Lands' Kowaliga Marine in his 1923 Hacker Craft and played hit songs from his current platinum album, "Good Time", as well as favorites like "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere", "Summertime Blues" and "Pop a Top". During the show, Jackson spoke movingly about childhood visits to Lake Martin with his family. His encore included a performance of the Hank Williams classic "Kaw-Liga", which Williams penned at his historic cabin on the lake.

"AquaPalooza is about sun and fun, great music, and togetherness with family and friends. That's why it is open to all boaters, not just Sea Ray owners, though our owners obviously know how to have a great time", said Rob Noyes, vice president of marketing for Sea Ray. "I'd like to extend a big thank you to everyone who attended, and I would especially like to thank our host dealership, Russell Marine, and everybody in the communities surrounding Lake Martin, who not only supported AquaPalooza, but rolled out the red carpet of Southern hospitality for all".
