This weekend promises to be the most entertaining of the year with several festivals going on across the state of Florida.
In West Palm Beach, we have Sunfest going on until Sunday (but no country music…shame on them!)
In Live Oak, we’ve got the awesome 4-day Suwannee River Jam, featuring stars such as Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Josh Turner, Justin Moore, Randy Travis, Joe Nichols, SFCM Featured Artist Lauren Elise, and more.
In Melbourne, we’ve got the 3-day Runaway Country Music Festival, featuring stars such as Kellie Pickler, Steve Holy, Craig Morgan, Chris Young, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, Big & Rich, Brantley Gilbert, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, SFCM Featured Artists Amber Leigh, Samantha Russell Band, and Tom Jackson, and many more. The lineup is great, but single-day tickets “start” at $59…A little over-priced in our opinion.
In Key West, we’ve got the annual Key West Songwriters Festival, which features over 100 of the top songwriters, many of which even the casual fan would know of. This lineup includes names such as artists Chuck Wicks, Josh Thompson, Sherri Austin, Walker Hayes, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Joey + Rory, Jesse Lee, LoCash Cowboys, Love N Theft, and Matt Stillwell, as well as dozens of songwriters that work behind the scenes to bring you some of Nashville’s biggest hits. They will be playing at various venues around Key West all weekend.
So if you had to choose one of these 3 big country events to attend, which would you go to??
