Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker to Headline Festival; Myrtle Beach, S.C., Will Host Oceanfront Festival from June 8-11, 2017
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (November 28, 2016) – The much-anticipated Carolina Country Music Fest (CCMF) will once again grace the beautiful sandy shores of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. From June 8-11, 2017, the South's premier outdoor music event will feature the hottest names in country music, including an impressive trio of headline acts and nearly 30 additional sought-after artists.
Headline acts for the 2017 CCMF include the following:
- Kenny Chesney embodies the free-spirited moments that make CCMF a can’t-miss country music event. As the only country artist on Billboard’s Top 10 Touring Acts of the Last 25 Years, Chesney’s love of life, music and friends have defined what an army of fans know as the No Shoes Nation.
- Jason Aldean was named RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time, in part thanks to three consecutive album debuts at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s All-Genre Top 200 Album chart.
- Darius Rucker, a South Carolina native, takes country music back to its roots, with his fourth solo album as a country artist. His first three single albums topped Billboard’s Country Album chart and produced a combined six No. 1 singles.
Additional performers for the 2017 beachfront event include Billy Currington, Lee Brice, Chris Young and Dee Jay Silver – among many more!
"We are thrilled to once again welcome CCMF and its remarkable list of country music artists to the Myrtle Beach area," said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. "As we kick off the summer travel season, we look forward to offering concertgoers a beachfront atmosphere for CCMF that matches the Myrtle Beach experience: exhilarating, entertaining and picturesque."
"CCMF is one of the most noteworthy and memorable country music festivals each year, thanks in no small part to its host, gorgeous Myrtle Beach, South Carolina," said Bob Durkin, president of Full House Productions, the entertainment and production company behind CCMF. "Myrtle Beach offers an amazing variety of accommodations to suit every concert attendee's needs, gorgeous panoramic views, an electric atmosphere, charming hospitality, and a range of attractions and entertainment to amuse concertgoers when they’re not soaking in the music."
The festival is located at the Burroughs and Chapin Pavilion Place, with the main stage located on the beach and boardwalk side of the site. The area will once again include a zip line experience, two VIP areas, concessions, merchandise booths and more. CCMF artists will perform June 9-11, with the popular Thursday Night Kick Off Concert once again taking place the Thursday prior, on June 8, 2017.
