So Long Summer Music Fest Featuring Trace Adkins

Join us for the third annual So Long Summer Music Fest, a two-day music festival featuring Trace Adkins!

Friday Entertainment: Night Ranger

Celebrating the band's 35th Anniversary, more than 17 million albums sold worldwide plus over 3,000 live shows performed, Night Ranger continues to ROCK! Night Ranger has earned widespread acclaim, multi-platinum and gold album status while leaving their indelible mark on the music charts with a string of best-selling albums.  Their popularity has been fueled by an impressive string of instantly recognizable singles and signature album tracks with legendary hits such as, "Sister Christian", "Don't Tell Me You Love Me", "When You Close Your Eyes", and "You Can Still Rock in America" just for starters!

Saturday Opening Act: Murphy's Ford 

Murphy's Ford is an American Country-Rock band hailing from Mid-Missouri. Founding members Brandon Matthews and Ryan Tomlinson say they "stemmed from humble beginnings pickin' guitars and writing songs over after work beers." It was evident from the first song they wrote that they had something special that deserved to be pursued beyond the back porch. When it came time to put a band together it was an easy decision to call upon the talents of long time friends and former band mates Adam Hunt on the banjo and backup vocals, Quinten Rice on the bass guitar, and Craig Wingate on the drums. Murphy's Ford, now fully equipped with a band, a handful of songs, a pocket full of gig money, and the determination for success, hit the studio to record what would later become their self-titled ep.(released 2016) Today Murphy's Ford can be found actively pursuing their dream and trying to turn on new fans/"family" as they would say, to their brand of edgy, get out of your seat, new country rock and roll.

Saturday Headline Entertainment: Trace Adkins

Trace Adkins has roared back into 2016 with the release of “Jesus and Jones,” his first single with BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records. The anthem about walking the line between Saturday night and Sunday morning is an instant classic from a man with an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other. It’s par for the course from Adkins, whose trademark baritone has powered countless hits and sold over 10 million albums, cumulatively. The hit list includes “You're Gonna Miss This,” “Ladies Love Country Boys,” “Songs About Me,” “Every Light In The House,” “Hillbilly Bone” (Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins), and “Just Fishin’,” to name a few.
