A Member of One Dynasty Visits Another

Duck Dynasty’s Jessica Robertson will headline Southern Women’s Show at its new location in September

Sunday, July 21, 2013 — Faith and family are at the heart of A&E’s most-watched series, Duck Dynasty. The reality show, a pop culture phenomenon, is ostensibly about the Robertson family and their business, Duck Commander. From their home in Louisiana, they have grown that family business into one of the hunting and sporting world’s pre-eminent brands. Their top-of-the-line duck calls and decoys are, a bit ironically, made from salvaged swamp wood. But fans love the show for its celebration of family.

One of the members of that dynasty, Jessica Robertson, will join another dynasty of sorts – the 31st annual Southern Women’s Show – on Sunday, Sept. 22 at 1 p.m. at the Fashion & Entertainment Stage.

 

The Southern Women’s Show has been one of the Charlotte area’s signature events for more than three decades. Thousands of mothers and daughters, sisters, co-workers and friends make it an annual tradition. The fun begins Sept. 19 and runs through 22 in a new uptown location at the Charlotte Convention Center at 501 S. College St.

 

Robertson is the wife of the youngest Robertson son, Jep, and is a busy mother to their four children. She’s also involved in the family business and is often seen on the show developing ideas for expanding Duck Commander’s women’s line. She knows what it means to get her “ducks in a row” as she juggles marriage, motherhood, career – and now, fame. She’ll be sharing stories about life in West Monroe, La.; her family’s business and hit TV show and the importance of family.

 

“We are thrilled to welcome Jessica Robertson to the Southern Women’s Show this year,” said Tish Atkins, show manager. “She is smart, elegant, entertaining, devoted to her faith and family and very relevant right now. Our guests are going to love her.”
