John Michael Montgomery is gearing up to throw his fans one heck of a party in his home state of Kentucky later this month. The singer's annual Country-Fest is set for Sept. 28 and 29, 2012 at Lynkins Park in Winchester, Ky.

Joining Montgomery for the highly-anticipated event will be Trace Adkins, Thompson Square, Gloriana, the Lost Trailers, Thomas Rhett, Exile and the Swon Brothers. Additional artists are expected to be announced in the days leading up to the event.

In addition to live music, fans will also be in for a variety of other fun activities, including arts and crafts, family activities, food vendors and much more. Portions of the proceeds raised through the John Michael Montgomery Country-Fest event will benefit various non-profit and charitable community organizations.

Advanced tickets to Country-Fest 2012 are on sale now. Fans can purchase their tickets online through the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame's official website. Children 10 and under and active military with ID are admitted free.
