2014 Bloomin’ Festival Main Stage Lineup
Bloomin’ Festival, one of Central Texas’ most popular annual events, returns to downtown Temple with a stellar show lineup, featuring country superstar Kevin Fowler! This year’s festival, presented by HEB, will be held on May 9 and 10 at 7th Street and Avenue A. Check out all the great regional and national acts who we'll have on stage...
We are jam-packed with music across our two stages. The main stage is all country, with headliners Kevin Fowler and Kyle Park, and local favorite (and last years's Texaco Country Showdown at Bloomin' Festival winner) Kirk Baxley. Country not your style? Our second stage has you covered, with two nights of live Tejano music with the legendary Jay Perez and David Lee Garza.
Check out the full main stage lineup below, and the second stage lineup here.
Bri Bagwell is a grassroots phenomenon, an independent artist without a record deal or management. Her first record, "Banned from Santa Fe," was released in June 2011, and made her the only female artist on the Texas Music Chart for weeks with the same-titled single.
Best known for "Wear My Ring," Bart's latest singles "Loving You's a Crime" and "Dandelion" are available online and wherever fine country music is sold.
Texas country singer-songwriter Kevin Fowler took a couple of years to take stock of his artistic career, launch his own record label, then write and record "How Country Are Ya?" the old-fashioned way. Now he's back, and hotter than ever, and he'll be performing for you.
Winner of last year's Texaco Country Showdown at Bloomin' Temple, Belton native Kirk Baxley brings his rock sensibilities to his Texas roots. His self-titled EP is due out this spring.
Co-writer of two #1 songs on the Texas Music Charts, "I Love Being Lonesome" by Roger Creager and "Pray for Rain" by Cody Johnson, his new record "Stay for a While" is available online.
Josh Grider's mix of traditional and modern influences has combined to make a living, breathing collection of songs that range from ethereal and pensive, to light-hearted and downright funny. He makes no more apologies for his electronic loops than he does for his thoughtful lyrics.
To hear Curtis Grimes sing is to take a trip through the heart of country music. A Texas native, Curtis was raised on a steady diet of George Strait and Alan Jackson, and he possesses the everyman charm of both his heroes, along with a refreshingly mature voice that—in an era of country raps and pop beats—truly stands out.
Released in early 2013, Park's single "The Night is Young" climbed to #3 on the Texas Country Charts, later reaching #1. His track “True Love" also climbed various country charts. Both tracks were included on his March 2013 solo album Beggin' for More, which he produced. The album went to #4 on country iTunes.
