A local bluesman has been getting a lot of national attention and love. Now, he's getting a lot more back at home. Winnsboro native Robert Finley not only has a national recording contract and works hand-in-hand with Black Keys mastermind Dan Auerbach, but most recently he's been featured as a contestant on the national television show "America's Got Talent".

Back in his hometown of Winnsboro, to celebrate his success and help spread his message of love, they are throwing a huge party called "Robert Finley Fun Day". The event will take place August 10th from 5 pm to 9 pm near the Princess Theatre in Winnsboro.
