Bloomin’ Festival 2015 Country Performance Lineup
In 2015, we commemorate the Tenth Anniversary of Bloomin' Festival and the biggest year the show has ever had. What better way could we celebrate that achievement than with our Saturday Night headliner... Montgomery Gentry?
Country music had never a heard a sound like the one these two Kentucky boys made when they burst onto the national scene in 1999 with "Hillbilly Shoes," and no matter how many millions of albums they've sold in the decade-and-a-half since, Troy and Eddie are still just a couple of working class guys.
"We are the blue collar workers and we lived the songs that we sing," says Troy. Eddie agrees: "With us what you see is what you get. We don't act like we don't drink or cuss. We have faults like everybody else and that's who we are."
Drinking and cussing aside, you can be sure that when Montgomery Gentry take the Bloomin' Festival stage their show will be flawless, and you can bet you'll hear at least a few of their fourteen Top 10 Singles, like "Something to Be Proud Of," "If You Ever Stop Loving Me," "Lucky Man," "Back When I Knew It All," and "Roll with Me."
Leading us in to Montgomery Gentry, Saturday Night's opening acts will be Jay White and the Blues Commanders and country music's darling son, Chase Bryant, who is sure to take us on back to summer with his hit single "Take It On Back." It's a night of country music you will not want to miss.
Great as Saturday at Bloomin' Festival is sure to be, don't miss Friday Night with headliner the Josh Abbott Band!
Best known for their songs 'She's Like Texas,' 'Touch,' 'Hangin' Around,' and the duet with Kacey Musgraves 'Oh, Tonight,' the band is led by Lubbock native Josh Abbott, with Preston Walt on fiddle, Edward Villanueva on drums, lead guitarist Caleb Keeter, bassist James Hertless, and Austin Davis on the electric banjo.
The band's 2012 album 'Small Town Family Dream,' which climbed to the top of the national Country and Independent music charts, is an ode to the music of Texas, and you can bet that they'll bring that same genuine Texan spirit and independent flair with the crowd at Bloomin' Festival.
Enjoy your way to the Josh Abbott Band with Friday Night’s opening acts, Belton’s native son Kirk Baxley and Bloomin’ Festival returning favorite William Clark Green, fresh off his new album Ringling Road.
Not enough music for you? We also have two full nights of Tejano on our Bloomin' Festival second stage. Check out that lineup here.
Of course, Bloomin' Festival has never been just about the music. You'll also find a full carnival, petting zoo, hundreds of local food and craft vendors, and more beer than you can drink. Stay late Saturday night for our D.R. Horton Homes 10th Anniversary Fireworks Display!
