Show-Me Music Festival presents a twangier summer festival option
Kanrocksas is shaping up to have a line-up a little deeper than previously expected (the recent addition of the Diplo and Switch dance-hall project Major Lazer certainly bumped me off the fence). But it’s certainly not for everyone. However, for those whose tastes run a little twangier but don’t feel like making the trek to Manhattan for Country Stampede, there’s another new festival taking place this summer. The Show-Me Music and Arts Festival runs the weekend of June 17-19 and features country stars Trace Adkins, Sawyer Brown and Tim McGraw, as well as classic rockers REO Speedwagon and American Idol’s Kellie Pickler.
