The Lucknow and District Kinsmen are pleased to announce the line-up of artists for the 8th Annual Music in the Fields country music festival, August 25th-27th, 2016 in Lucknow, Ontario.
LEE BRICE, DEAN BRODY, FRANKIE BALLARD, JASON BLAINE, TEBEY, MADELINE MERLO, JOJO MASON & THE LOVELOCKS
Country music recording star Lee Brice will be headlining the main stage. With multiple ACM and CMA awards, Grammy nominations and #1 radio hits including “I Drive Truck”, “I Don’t Dance” and “Woman Like You”, Lee’s smash hit “Drinking Class” gives him the distinction of having country radio’s most played song in 2015. Joining Lee Brice on the Saturday line-up will be fellow American recording artist Frankie Ballard and Canadian country performers Jason Blaine, Madeline Merlo along with rising star Jojo Mason.
Friday August 26th will feature Canadian superstar Dean Brody. Brody’s most recent release, Gypsy Road, features the hit singles “Upside Down” and “Bring Down The House” and has been nominated for Album of the Year at the 2016 Juno Awards. Brody has also been nominated for the Juno Fan Choice Award in 2016. Joining Brody on Friday August 26th will be Canadian artists Tebey and previous CCMA Discovery Series winners The Lovelocks.
A new feature to the festival will debut on Thursday evening with “Thursday Night Throw-Down” a kick-off party with details to be announced.
Festival Co-Chair, Rick McMurray says that, “We are very excited about this year’s lineup. We have some unbelievable headline entertainment with Lee Brice and Dean Brody and probably our strongest list of supporting artists including Frankie Ballard”. Festival Co-Chair Ken Irwin said, “The town expands eight-fold for the weekend, yet it still remains an intimate, family-friendly festival…and is still a great party with great music. Most importantly, all the profits are distributed by the local Kinsmen Club back into our surrounding communities. Since the inception of the festival, over $750,000 has been programmed for community improvements or support and we are very proud of this”. With a new expanded campground, free parking and a Thursday night Kick-Off party, the festival continues to grow in both size and experience.
