COUNTRY FEST REVEALS LINEUP FOR JUNE 2021 FESTIVAL
Country Music Festival Counting Down to Bringing Live Music Back to the Chippewa Valley
CADOTT, Wis. July 14, 2020 — Country Fest is proud to announce the new lineup for the 34th annual country music festival. The three-day country music and camping festival scheduled for June 24-26, 2021 in Cadott, Wis. will feature award-winning headliners Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley and Kane Brown. This star-studded lineup will welcome a mix of new and returning artists including Cole Swindell, Brothers Osborne, Dustin Lynch, Lauren Alaina, Granger Smith ft. Earl Dibbles Jr., Cam, The Oak Ridge Boys, Runaway June, Rhett Akins, Neal McCoy and many more of the best acts in country music.
With 13 No. One hits and the most played artist on the radio, Thomas Rhett recently won ACM Awards Male Artist of the Year. His new album, Center Point Road made history, earning the highest streaming debut for a country album ever. The album is about knowing where you came from and who you really are, regardless of how much has changed.
Dierks Bentley is an Arizona native that has scored 18 Number Ones like “What Was I Thinkin’,” “I Hold On” and “Black” and 13 Grammy nominations. He’s built a reputation as both a dedicated family man and a forever-young drifter, put in millions of miles on headlining tours and taken the fearless stylistic detours of a truly authentic artist.
Singer/songwriter, Kane Brown has forged his own path through the music industry, becoming the first artist ever to be #1 on all 5 of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously. His self-titled album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums, Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart, and became the #4 best-selling new-artist album debut of 2016 in any genre.
Next June, crowd-favorite Neal McCoy will kick things off right by headlining the Wednesday Kickoff Party, exclusive to all 3-Day ticket holders. One of Nashville’s newest success stories, Kane Brown will hit the Main Stage on Thursday, June 24 to keep the party going.
Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley will get the crowd a little sideways on Friday, June 25. Then, ACM Awards Male Artist of the Year Thomas Rhett will close out Country Fest right on Saturday, June 26.
