Dauphin Countryfest stage (Todd Pedersen, Leah & Dana Kendzierski, Linda Dawson)
Once a year, country music fans from around the country gather at Canada's longest running country festival, Dauphin's Countryfest. Last year, over 14,000 were in attendance.
The festival just announced the headliners for their 23rd annual event and SCENE has the details.
So who's coming in 2012?
Grammy, CMA and ACM award winners Sugarland. Just think "Stuck Like Glue"
Ronnie Dunn formerly of country superstars Brooks and Dunn in his solo project.
The Zac Brown Band, made up of crack musicians that can play a variety of styles.
"How can we not be excited about having these three acts booked for 2012?", says Countryfest promoter Rob Walochuk. "They're all multi award winning artists who have been forces to be reckoned with in the country music industry. Not to mention they all have amazing stage presence that sells out shows and keeps their fans coming back for more. We're confident next summer will be a party to remember."
Justin Moore, Jerrod Neimann, Charlie Major, Pear and Aaron Pritchett are also on the roster for next summer's festival.
The annual Saturday Night Classic Rock Show will feature Kim Mitchell.
Other performers will be announced in the next few months.
