Michael Watts, who promoted the Hoedown for the last nine years and worked with the festival for 22 of its 24 years, said Thursday that his verbal contract with the Detroit Recreation Department to produce this year's festival was canceled. He said he was "forced out" of the event by the hosting radio station, WYCD-FM (99.5)... Promoter hitch won't derail popular Hoedown (Sat 4/15)
