For those of you who have been loyal followers for the past handful of years, you probably did a double take thinking that you were reading the wrong blog, since I usually only post about EDM festivals. However, as I've grown older I have found a new appreciation for all different types of music - from Classical, to R&B, to even a little bit of Country.
The country music festival formerly known as "Windy City LakeShake" has rechristened itself as Country LakeShake and is right around the corner! The summer music festival will take over the Huntington Bank Pavilion on Northerly Island from June 23–25, offering up a mass of Nashville stars and more cowboy hats than you'll see at Lollapalooza...and I cannot wait to check it out!
Headliners at this year's LakeShake include young Nashville songwriter (and son of country singer Rhett Akins) Thomas Rhett, Texas singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert and country pop trio Rascal Flatts. Other notable acts on the lineup include Nashville duo Big & Rich (best known for its ubiquitous single "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)"), vocal quartet Little Big Town and former Survivor contestant Chase Rice.
Country LakeShake ticket packages are almost SOLD OUT, so make sure to snag your Single Day, 3-Day Lawn, or 3-day Grandstand passes this week! And before you start trying to find an appropriate pair of cowboy boots to wear to the fest, take a look at the full Country LakeShake lineup below or follow our #Lakeshake4Lily Spotify Playlist to get started early!
