In a replay of the fiddle-off two years ago, mother and daughter Marcia and Maddie Denton of Murfreesboro faced off for the Berry C. Williams Memorial award at the 2014 Smithville Fiddlers Jamboree and Crafts Festival Saturday night. Daughter Maddie Denton again took home the prize. The younger Denton won the Junior Fiddling title earlier that day, and mother Marcia took the Senior Fiddling title to set up the showdown around 11:30 p.m. Annabelle Watts of Philpot, Kentucky was named the Grand Champion Fiddler in the National Championship for Country Musician Beginners on Friday, and took home the James G. "Bobo" Driver Memorial Award.
