This year's grandstand entertainment includes a mix of artists from several genres.
Zach Williams will take the stage on Tuesday, September 15 for a night of contemporary Christian music.
Willams is a Grammy award-winning artist with a number of top-charting songs including his debut single “Chain Breaker.”
The band Blues Traveler will be live on Wednesday, Sept. 16.
This blues-rock quartet spans a variety of genres with songs like “Run-Around.”
The band Whiskey Myers will perform live on Thursday, Sept. 17.
USA Today describes the band as “a riff-heavy blend of Southern rock and gritty country that has earned comparisons to the Allman Brothers band and Led Zeppelin.” On the radio, you’ve probably heard their song “Stone” or “Ballad of A Southern Man.”
The tractor pull and hot rod truck/tractor pulls are also on the schedule.
Stay tuned for details about the entire lineup, ticket promotions and explicit safety measures.
