Jason Aldean, Eric Church & Lady Antebellum Lead 4th Annual Faster Horses Lineup

Faster Horses

Faster Horses Festival has quickly become Michigan’s “go-to summer bash” (Detroit Free Press,) and will return in its fourth year on July 15-17 with a star-studded lineup including headliners Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Lady Antebellum.  A three-day, two stage country music and camping festival set among the rolling Irish Hills of Brooklyn, MI and dubbed “The Party of The Summer,” Faster Horses has become known for the strong community vibe within the campsites as well as rapidly winning over artists as one of their favorite shows of the season.  Passes will go on-sale on Feb. 12 at 10am ET at fasterhorsesfestival.com.

With Detroit News heralding the festival’s atmosphere as “how country feels,” returning fans and new attendees alike, will be able to enjoy the stacked lineup they’ve come to expect including Gary Allan, A Thousand Horses, Big & Rich, Granger Smith feat Earl Dibbles, Jr., Sam Hunt, LoCash, David Nail, Joe Nichols, Jon Pardi and Travis Tritt with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

“What I love about Faster Horses is that the passion and loyalty of the fans is palpable,” said Brian O’Connell President of Live Nation Country Touring. “You can feel it when you’re out in the campgrounds and you see how much time and energy they’ve put into preparing for the festival, and you can feel it when an artist steps out onto the stage.  That passion drives us to come back every year with a lineup that will show our appreciation for all that they’ve done to help us build this festival.  I can’t wait to get back out there for another huge year!”

Selling out in advance of only its third year, Faster Horses is part of Live Nation’s family of premier country music festivals which includes four further destination festivals including Windy City LakeShake-Chicago, IL, FarmBorough-New York, NY, Watershed-The Gorge, WA and Route 91 Harvest-Las Vegas, NV.

Tyler Farr on Immediate Vocal Rest After Surgery

Following microlaryngeal surgery to remove a vocal polyp on his vocal chords, Tyler Farr has been placed on total vocal rest. The power vocalist first became aware of vocal issues while on tour with Jason Aldean this summer – and the problem was identified during a severe bout of bronchitis at the end of 2015.

“This is the last thing I would’ve ever expected,” says the operatically-trained Farr. “I sing hard, and I give it everything I have every night, but I really believed I was putting my training to work. After a #1 song, an awesome tour with Jason and getting engaged, this is not how I thought I was going to be winding up 2015.”

Rather than wait and see, Farr and his medical team opted to remove the polyps and begin vocal rest, followed by aggressive therapy. To maximize recovery and minimize time off the road, the Missouri-born owner of three gold and one platinum single is cancelling all shows for the next few months.

“I know what it takes to get out there and really deliver,” Farr says. “I hate cancelling shows, especially the upcoming tour with my buddy Lee Brice, but I never want to give the fans less than everything… And I know the sooner I let my body heal, the sooner I can get back out there – and the fewer problems I will have in the long run. To me, it’s never about the next few days, but doing the right thing overall, and now I’m under doctor’s orders.”

Working with the medical team at the Vanderbilt Voice Clinic, Farr will be doing all he can to heal his vocal chords and gearing up for the road this spring. Being given a good report post-surgery, it appears his voice will return stronger and richer than ever.

Lee Brice was ready celebrate the New Year by launching his “Life Off My Years” concert tour with his good friend and running buddy Tyler Farr — and Dylan Scott — beginning February 4th in Salisbury, MD. But, with Farr undergoing emergency vocal chord surgery and enforced vocal rest, Farr is forced to give his friend time to heal and has tapped Maddie & Tae, Clare Dunn and Jerrod Niemann to fill Farr’s boots.

Heralded by Country Weekly, Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone as a “must-see” summer festival, attendees will also be able to enjoy the breathtaking and unrivaled setting of the watershed for the Columbia River, the unique backdrop from where the festival drew its name.

“The ’Shedders and my team know how special Watershed is to me and I can’t believe we’re coming back in only our fifth year for two weekends,” said Brian O’Connell, President of Live Nation Country Touring. “I’m so excited to see first-timers like Jason, Keith and Eric’s reaction when they arrive at The Gorge, as the view is just out of this world, and all the artists and fans getting to experience the truly unique vibe of this festival. “

The first to be established in Live Nation’s family of premier country music festivals, the success of Watershed was quickly followed by the launch of four further destination festivals including Faster Horses in Brooklyn, MI; Route 91 Harvest in Las Vegas, NV; Windy City LakeShake in Chicago, IL and FarmBorough in New York, NY.
