This weekend, Lady Antebellum was forced to cancel their Take Me Downtown tour stop in Birmingham, Alabama. Unfortunately, heavy rains and flooding damaged the venue and the show couldn’t go on.

 

So, I hope all of you can make it on May 3rd!

Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Merle Haggard and More to Headline Oklahoma City’s New Summer Music Festival

OKC Fest

The refrain “GET YOUR KICKS ON ROUTE 66” will take on new life at the first annual OKCFEST 2014 — a new summer music festival that is the brainchild of Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett and prominent business and civic leader Fred Hall. Supported by a growing alliance of business, community and entertainment industry leaders, the OKCFEST 2014 mid-summer musical party and festival will attract an estimated 30,000 fans, and underscores the ever-growing vibrancy and vitality of Oklahoma City — both present and future.

From Thursday June 26 through Sunday June 29, the harmonious sounds of contemporary and traditional country, rock, bluegrass, jazz, unplugged singer-songwriter showcases – including an exclusive appearance by four of Nashville’s current top hit song writers – “rock en Espagnol” and gospel music will reverberate throughout Downtown Oklahoma City.  Production stages will be concentrated in the Myriad Gardens vicinity across from the City’s iconic Devon Energy Tower and the Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the Oklahoma City Thunder NBA basketball team, and blocks from the city’s popular Bricktown entertainment district, Oklahoma River Boathouse District, Film Row and the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and other prominent cultural and recreational destinations.  Within walking distance of the festival staging area are dozens of hotels, restaurants and bistros offering a variety of cuisine, unique shopping and ample public parking options.

Reflecting the genre’s historic Oklahoma popularity, country was selected as the focus of the Festival’s first year scheduling. Headline performers will include popular recording stars Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Merle Haggard, Randy Rogers, Kix Brooks, Josh Abbott, Casey Donahew and Scotty McCreery on the OKCFEST’s Main Stage Friday and Saturday nights.  Celebrated producer, composer and renowned jazz vocalist Steve Tyrell and his 8-piece band will kick-off the weekend with an exclusive and independently ticketed Thursday night show for festival underwriters, sponsors and their special guests.  The high-profile first year line-up resulted from a collaborative effort between Fred Hall and Victor Sansone, the respected past chairman of the Country Music Association and former ABC radio executive, who is serving as an entertainment and production consultant to OKCFEST.

One-day and two-day passes for the main stage event area, which will feature food, beverage and unique shopping throughout OKCFEST, go on sale April 11 through the OKCFEST Festival Website (online at OKCFEST.com, at ProTix.com, and in select Oklahoma ProTix retail locations), with main stage site admission available for purchase at $35 per day and $59 for two-day passes.

Additional music and other entertainment events on three nearby Myriad Garden stages will be free to the public Friday through Sunday afternoons and evenings, with preferred seating at each stage reserved for those holding OKCFEST passes.

Lady Antebellum’s “Golden” Featuring Stevie Nicks Available on iTunes

Three-time ACM “Vocal Group of the Year” Lady Antebellum performed their single “Golden” featuring Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks of the ACM Awards last night and it is available on iTunes now.

“Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought we’d have the chance to perform with Stevie Nicks, let alone develop a friendship like we have on and off stage,” said Lady A’s Hillary Scott. “When we first sat down with her, ‘Golden’ was one of our songs that really touched her, so we recently asked her if she’d be willing to record her vocal for it – and she agreed! The timing ended up being perfect and we may have even worked up a little ACM-twist for Sunday’s performance!”

“I love Lady Antebellum, and to me, this song is their ‘Landslide’ because it’s just that spectacular,” said Nicks who wrote Fleetwood Mac’s iconic song, which first debuted on their self-titled album 1975 and has remained a legendary hit for decades.

Top Country Tweets of the Week – March 30th

thomas rhett

10. Happy Birthday @ThomasRhett! He told us in this tweet “Fun fact: @JustinColeMoore and I share a birthday. Better fact: it’s today. Happy birthday brother. pic.twitter.com/L26NlvPT4Y

9. Apparently the cast of Nashville knows how to get rowdy – @ClareMBee (Clare Bowen) sent out this last week “Found mayonnaise in the fringe of my favorite jacket this morning. Rough night?”

8. We all know @LauraBellBundy can get a little ‘Kentucky Dirty’, so here was her reaction when KY made it to the final four in March Madness “I’m so excited I think I just peed a little! FINAL FOUR!!! #bestdayever #bbn #kydirty”

7. If you were ever wondering how to scare @BrettEldredge (maybe an April Fools Joke), he sent out this tweet “If you are a life size Easter bunny, please stay away…you may scare me a wee bit”

6. @ScottyMcCreery obviously doesn’t remember that Punk’d was canceled years ago: “Now tuesday is April 1st, and I just got some insanely cool news for that day! I think I’m being punked, but I cant find any hidden cameras!”

5. Artist, pilot, father, husband – @DierksBentley can add chef to his resume now “oh yeah…cooked this bad boy chicken breast myself and didnt even microwave the frozen veggies.…” http://instagram.com/p/l8jo1PMCos/

4. Jerrod Niemann released his third album this week, so @BradPaisley sent this in honor of the release. I think it’s supposed to be supportive… “Everybody go buy the new @jrodfromoz album! It’s the one with Donkey on it. Actually, all his albums have a Donkey on it.”

3. It’s not quite time for Easter egg hunts yet, but that doesn’t stop @TaylorSwift13 from hiding things “I keep hiding things in secret spots in my apartment and then forgetting where I hid them. Would’ve been the worst pirate ever.”

2. It’s been a LONG winter, so @LadyAntebellum’s Charles was ready to make his debut in the sun this week. “to say I got a little over ambitious on my first day of being in the sun is an understatement. red lobsterish today people. #sunblock – ck”
