It's no secret that Hurricane Florence left behind massive amounts of damage to parts of Eastern North Carolina and in particular, the coast.  One of those hard hit places was the City of Wilmington.  Daily Courier, Rutherford County, Reporter Mackenzie Wicker, used to call the Wilmington area home.  Her sister lives there now, as do some college friends.  Mackenzie shared all she knew about what residents were dealing with in Wilmington, during this interview on September 26, 2018.

She's sold more than 12 million records, won 27 Grammys, nine Country Music Association Awards, 14 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, two Academy of Country Music Awards AND two Gospel Music Association Awards. We've been playing her music on WNCW for almost three decades! She'll be in Cherokee, NC this Friday, September 21st at Harrah's. Showtime is 9pm. More Info
