This weekend, some of country music’s biggest names will descend on Denham Springs for the Cajun Country Jam’s first Memorial Day Festival, a two-day showcase that is expected to draw thousands from across the south and beyond. Featuring a full slate of national and local country music stars, the two-day event runs May 27-28 at North Park. The event will kick off Saturday, May 27, with Tritt, 60, capping off the night. A chart-topper with five No. 1 hits, Tritt has 11 studio albums under his belt — which have led to two Grammy awards, four CMA awards, 20 top-10 hits, and millions in career album sales. Prior to Tritt’s performance, the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame will officially welcome Travis, one of country music’s biggest stars of all-time, into the sacred group. Shenandoah, which goes on stage before Tritt, will help with the induction and perform several of Travis’ hits. Others scheduled to perform Saturday are the Chase Tyler Band, Nelson Blanchard, Konner James, Ben Ragsdale, Abby Leigh, and Kendall Shaffer. =================================================== The festival will close with McCreery, 29, taking the stage Sunday, May 28. A North Carolina native who rose to fame after winning the 10th season of “American Idol,” McCreery’s career started fast when he became both the first country artist and the youngest male artist of any genre to debut his first studio album at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. McCreery, who already has five No. 1 songs from five studio albums, will headline a day of younger artists that’ll include Bear Bailey, Thomas Cain, Tyler Braden, and Mitchell Tenpenny. Sunday, May 28 4 p.m. - Bear Bailey 5 p.m. - Thomas Cain 7 p.m. - Tyler Braden 8:30 p.m. - Mitchell Tenpenny 10 p.m. - Scotty McCreery Edited Friday at 09:08 PM by buttons66 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
