Saturday HEADLINER – Billy Dean
Saturday, April 27 at 5:00 pm on the First Volunteer Stage
Billy Dean is an American Troubadour who has mastered the art of singing, songwriting, and storytelling. His unique ability to morph into the characters in his songs while performing LIVE, brings the storyline to life with musical drama.
Billy’s finger style acoustic guitar playing is reminiscent of James Taylor, and is percussive in nature. “I’ve never heard so much music coming from one man and one guitar. He’s the best I’ve ever seen”, says award winning producer/songwriter Monty Powell.
No matter what venue he performs in, large or small, with his band or just solo, Billy’s charismatic charm and approachable personality puts you, the listener, in an intimate living room setting, where he touches every emotional nerve, leaving you musically nourished with a renewed Spirit.
Although Billy’s best known in the Country Music genre for his 11 top ten singles, 5 number one’s and over 5 million albums sold, his musical roots are entangled with Folk, Southern Rock, Bluegrass and Classic Country.
Billy says his musical influences are ongoing, but his sound will forever have the finger prints of those troubadour’s who came before him like James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, John Denver, The Eagles, Christopher Cross, David Gates and Bread, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, and Don Williams.
Billy Dean has been nominated by every major music award entity. Most recently he was inducted into the Florida Hall Of Fame for artist.
SUNDAY HEADLINER – Jason Crabb
In his career, Kentucky-born Jason Crabb has won a GRAMMY and 21 Dove Awards – being named the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards Artist and Male Vocalist of the Year along with Song of the Year.
Crabb’s electrifying stage presence, powerhouse vocals and magnetic personality have endeared him to millions across the world – through extensive personal appearances, media coverage, and social media including over 20 million views on YouTube.
Do you play a fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin, or harmonica? Years of practice or just a beginner? Then the jam tent is just the place for you. Bring your own instrument to the festival and visit the jam tent for a boot-stompin’ good time. We’ll even have a “host musician” there just to keep the tunes movin’. All that’s missing is YOU!
