In response to the recent news that Jason Aldean has been added as a headliner for the 2017 Carolina Country Music Festival, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:
"With each CCMF announcement the lineup just keeps getting better. We're excited about the buzz we're already hearing about today’s announcement that Jason Aldean will headline along with Kenny Chesney next year. CCMF comes at a critical time period at the tail end of our slow season and it is proving to be an extraordinary way to kick off our summer season. We look forward to more announcements from Bob Durkin and his team in the coming weeks."
