COUNTRY MUSIC FESTIVAL SCHEDULE
Featuring Joe Diffie!
2:30 pm Justin Bryan
Originally from Eaton, OH, Justin Bryan has been singing for as long as he can remember. Since auditioning for The Voice, he formed the Justin Bryan Band and has opened for Clint Black, Frank Foster, Clark Manson, American Idol’s Alexis Gomez, and Blind Joe. Along with legendary writers Frank Myers and Billy Montana, Justin wrote his first single, "Faster Than Angels Can Fly." After a successful impromptu audition at Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville, he performs daily on Broadway.
4:30 pm The Cleverly’s
The Cleverlys are a one-of-a-kind comedy/music blend coming from the remote part of the Ozark Mountains. The band has performed at some of the nation’s largest festivals like Stagecoach, Telluride, CMA Music Fest and the Grand Ole Opry. The Cleverlys’ set list includes genius arrangements of tunes like Psy’s “Gangnam Style,” a medley of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity,” and Flo Rida’s “Low” that recently went viral on Facebook, with over 11 million views.
6:30 pm Mo Pitney
When Mo Pitney sings "let me tell you about country" in his debut single "Country," he's describing who he is in word and deed. The vocal delivery, storytelling, musicianship and reflections of his outdoor lifestyle – as well as faith, family and patriotism – offer a spot-on portrayal. Joined by early fan favorites "Clean Up On Aisle Five" and "Come Do A Little Life," the song carves an unmistakably country yet completely fresh groove for the genre.
8:30 pm Joe Diffie
Whether singing about untarnished love in “John Deere Green,” the perennial appeal of “Pickup Man,” or the heartbreak of dreams unrealized in “Ships That Don’t Come In,” Joe Diffie paints a portrait of real life with all its joy and angst. Diffie has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 25 years. His very first single in 1990, “Home,” hit No. 1. He continued to dominate the charts throughout the 90s with such hits as “New Way (To Light Up an Old Flame),” “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets),” “Is It Cold in Here,” “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die),” “So Help Me Girl,” “Bigger than the Beatles” and “Third Rock from the Sun.” "I Got This" is slated for release in 2019.
