Lee Brice to Headline 2016 Country on the River Festival
The singer-songwriter is one of the most respected live performers in country music for his ability to convey his songs in a way that connects emotionally with his fans. He joins previously announced headliner Kid Rock at the three-day festival, which is set to take place Aug. 4-6 in Prairie du Chien, Wisc., in the countryside where the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers converge.
Brice is one of the hottest young stars in country music today, having scored four No. 1 hits with "A Woman Like You," "Hard to Love," "I Drive Your Truck" and "I Don't Dance," which is the title song to his most recent album. He's also earned Top 10 singles with "Love Like Crazy," "Parking Lot Party" and "Drinking Class," and written songs for Garth Brooks ("More Than a Memory"), Eli Young Band ("Crazy Girl") and more.
Alabama, Jake Owen and Dierks Bentley headlined Country on the River in 2015, topping an all-star bill that included Cole Swindell, Big & Rich and Randy Houser, among many others. With another top-name headliner and three days' worth of great country music still to be announced, the festival is gearing up to make 2016 even more exciting.
“Country on the River is one of the premier music and camping festivals in the Midwest, and our 2016 lineup will feature some of the biggest names in contemporary country music,” says Dhruv Prasad, Executive Vice President of Live Events for Townsquare Media, Inc., one of the festival organizers. “We’ve made some considerable improvements for next year and look forward to welcoming our fans back to the festival.”
