Here's the AMAZING line-up:

JACK INGRAM will kick the festival off Friday night at 5:00.

Known for Top 40 hits like, Lips of an Angel, Measure of a Man, Maybe She’ll Get Lonely, That’s a Man, Barefoot and Crazy, Wherever you Go and Love you which is one of my favorites. What a way to kick off the festival!

CONFEDERATE RAILROAD will also take the stage Friday night at 7:00 to keep the energy going! They are one of my favorite groups of the early 90's.

Confederate Railroad has released six studio albums and produced chart topping hits like She Took it Like a Man, Jesus and Mama, When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back, Trashy Women, She Never Cried, Daddy Never was the Cadillac Kind, Elvis and Andy and this one. Queen of Memphis is one of my favorites!

DAVID LEE MURPHY will cap off this amazing night of entertainment at 9:00!

It will be one heck of a "Party Crowd" when David Lee Murphy steps on the stage and sings any of his dozen or so top charting singles including this one that went to #1 on the charts, "Dust on the Bottle"!


Saturday's line-up will begin at 1:00 and will include amazing artists like Alonzo Pennington, Ben Haggard and the Strangers, our own Slaughters, Kentucky native, singer song-writer Chris Knight and these other incredible artists!

PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE will take the stage Saturday afternoon at 3:00 and play for what is expected to be a HUGE crowd.

We'll step back a few years to watch Pure Prairie League perform "Amie" and "Falling in & Out of Love" and know that we are in for a terrific show in Providence!

Kentucky Headhunters will wrap up the festival Saturday night at 9:00 and I for one can't wait. My Dad loved this group and I always have too. They are fun, can rock and make me smile!

CMA, ACM and Grammy Award winners, the Kentucky Headhunters will bring their southern rock/country roots to the stage and put on a show for the ages. With so many hit singles it's hard to choose a favorite...or is it? I play this on The Barb Show whenever I can squeeze it in. I love it and it makes me think of my amazing Daddy because he loved it so much too!
