Multiple award-winning country singer Kenny Chesney has been tapped to headline next year’s third annual BamaJam Music & Arts Festival to be held June 3-5 in Enterprise, AL.
This year’s festival ran June 4-6 and represented a musical mix of country, alternative, rock, blues and more on four stages. Headliners were Taylor Swift (June 4), Alan Jackson and The Black Crowes (June 5), and Kid Rock and Brooks & Dunn (June 6).
Other featured artists included Los Lonely Boys, Charlie Daniels, Pat Green G. Love & Special Sauce, Blake Shelton, Jamey Johnson and a slate of other top performers.
Daily attendance continually grew from 75,000 people the first day to more than 100,000 the second day and 121,000 on the final day. Three-day admission at the gate was $150 with one-day tickets priced at $89.50. There was also a limited number of $99 three day general admission tickets.
Verizon and Ronnie Gilley Entertainment are the festival producers.
Chesney is currently in the middle of his summer-long Sun City Carnival Tour, which launched in April and ends September 19 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN. His next performance is tonight, July 10, at the Calgary Stampede in Calgary, AB.
