Jake Owen, The Band Perry and Brantley Gilbert to Headline Country Summer


Northern California’s biggest country music festival, Country Summer presented by Lithia RAM of Santa Rosa, has announced 13 of 14 entertainers performing June 5 to 7 at Sonoma County Event Center at the Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road.

Executive Producer Alan Jacoby says plans are in the works for an audition competition inviting fans to vote for the country music act that will open the show. “Stay tuned,” he said. “We will be announcing details soon.”

Country Summer 2015 superstar headliners include Jake Owen on June 5, The Band Perry on June 6 and Brantley Gilbert on June 7.

In addition to the headliners, the June 5 lineup includes Gary Allan, Chris Young and Parmalee; June 6 includes Lee Brice, Jerrod Niemann, Frankie Ballard and The Swon Brothers; and June 7 includes Trace Adkins, Easton Corbin and Cassadee Pope.

Country Summer is produced by Impact Entertainment and Sonoma Media Group, the owner of Froggy 92.9 and other leading radio stations serving Sonoma County.

This year, Country Summer anticipates attracting more than 33,000 fans with more video walls and enhanced staging and sound. Between main acts on the Montgomery Village Stage, there will be a secondary stage featuring additional country musicians and groups.

While performances by country music artists are the main attraction, great festivals are more than great music. Country Summer is a destination country celebration with Western-themed attractions, an expanded 2015 Food Court with country-inspired delights and an array of libations to please every palette — from Bud Light for beer drinkers to wine and spirits at the Leese-Fitch Wine Garden and the Jack Daniel’s Saloon.

“Country Summer 2015 is off to a great start with an incredible lineup of country music’s most popular entertainers,” Jacoby said. “We are also very pleased to welcome our new presenting sponsor, Lithia RAM of Santa Rosa, as well as an array of new and second-time sponsors supporting the event.”

Daily tickets start from $69 for general admission, $99 for reserved seats. A limited number of discount three-day packages are available.  To purchase tickets, visit or call 800.514.3849 to order by phone.

Artists to Wait Tables for Make-A-Wish

waiting for wishes

Titans player, now sports analyst on ESPNU, Kevin Carter, will host his 14thAnnual Kevin Carter’s “Waiting for Wishes” Celebrity Waiter’s Dinner to benefit The Kevin Carter Foundation and Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee at The Palm Restaurant on Tuesday, April 7, 2015. Nashville’s premiere celebrity event, “Waiting for Wishes” has raised more than $1.7 million for charity since its inception in 2002. The annual event is expected to sell out and tickets are limited. The event raises funds to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

The celebrity event, co-hosted by Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, is an exclusive, VIP evening where Carter, NFL teammates, other professional athletes and country music artists along with various celebrities take over The Palm as servers before they head over to Honky Tonk Central for the Official After-Party – Jam with Jay DeMarcus & Friends. The event, presented by HCA, continues to be one of the most unique celebrity events in the country and is considered a “must attend” event for patrons and participants alike.

Over fifty celebrities joined in to wait tables, sign autographs and sing at the after-party in 2014. An eclectic mix of celebrities appear each year and this year will be no different with country artists Scotty McCreery, Chris Young, Dustin Lynch, Frankie Ballard, 80’s Pop Singers Rick Springfield and Tiffany, ABC’s TV hit NASHVILLE’s Chip Esten (Deacon), NFL Vikings Jared Allen, Olympic Skater Scott Hamilton, America’s Got Talent’s Jimmy Rose, Big Brother’s Jeff Schroder, the Voice of the UFC Mike Goldberg and champion boxer Antonio Tarver making appearances to name a few.

“I am so grateful to be able to continue this incredible event so many years after my NFL career,” said Kevin Carter who can now been seen on ESPN. “I’m grateful to my co-host Jay DeMarcus and the unbelievable celebrities that show up to wait tables for our patrons each year. As we celebrate fourteen years of making dreams come true for children, I am humbled to know that our efforts have granted about 340 wishes for children in middle Tennessee during that time.”

The evening will begin with a cocktail reception for patrons at 5:45 p.m., followed by The Palm’s famous “Surf & Turf” dinner and a brief program hosted by former News 2 anchor, John Dwyer. A premiere silent and live auction will feature exotic trips, autographed celebrity memorabilia, and once in a lifetime experiences. The celebrities will serve guests, sign autographs, and accept donations to indulge the lively crowd. Tickets are all-inclusive at $550 per person or $3,600 for a table of 8 and include the reception, dinner and after-party. Space is limited. For reservations, contact Paige Dixon at 615-742-3193 or

Because the event itself sells out so quickly, in 2012 “Waiting for Wishes” expanded to include an Official After-Party for those who want to join in the fun after the main event. The 2015 “Jam with Jay DeMarcus & Friends” will be held from 8 p.m. until close at Honky Tonk Central. This informal jam session is tons of fun for patrons and servers alike, and will feature a few guests and friends unable to make it to the main event. “Jam with Jay DeMarcus & Friends” has featured music from Rick Springfield, Tiffany, Scotty McCreary, Chip Esten, Big & Rich with Cowboy Troy, Darius Rucker, Keith Anderson, Kristen Kelly and Low Cash Cowboys. You never know you will jump up on stage from the crowd.

A great event for all music lovers, and perfect for those with benevolent hearts, all After Party proceeds benefit The Kevin Carter Foundation and Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee. While the After-Party is included in the price of the dinner ticket, it is sold separately for those who want to attend the After-Party only. Tickets are $65 per person and can be purchased at Tickets will not be sold at the door, so order now. This event is expected to sell out.

Regarding the event’s enormous growth and success, Carter states “I attribute the success of this event to this incredible community, their spirit of giving, and their commitment to changing the circumstances of those in need. I am also very blessed to have a wonderful committee of volunteers who never get enough credit for the amazing work they do each year. I couldn’t do it without their continued support in handling all the details of the event.”
