The full music lineup:

Friday, August 11
Doors Open | 6:30 p.m.

Amanda Kate Ferris | 7:00pm
Raised in a no-stop-light-town in Red River, New Mexico, Amanda Kate Ferris grew up equally inspired by her small-town upbringing and her mother. In October 2022, Ferris released the single “Baby Don’t.” Ferris’ first track of 2023, “Tequila & Jesus,” written by CMA award-winning Female Vocalist of the Year Lainey Wilson, Josh Thomson, and Brent Anderson, was released ahead of “Pedal Steel.” Matt Caldwell | 8:15 p.m.

Singer/songwriter Matt Caldwell hails from the small town of Nevada, Texas. He was named Texas Music Picker Rising Artist of The Year in 2015. Matt opened for acts such as Miranda Lambert, Cody Johnson, Luke Bryan, The Eli Young Band, Wade Bowen & many other multi-platinum artists. Caldwell has had eight singles on the Texas Charts, including one Number 1, two Top 10s and three top-20 songs. He has also had 35 of his songs cut by artists including Clay Walker, Granger Smith, Josh Ward, Trent Willmon and Kristen Kelly.

Headliner Easton Corbin | 9:40 p.m.
Easton Corbin exudes country. His distinctive baritone has been gracing airwaves for the past decade as his chart-topping debut single “A Little More Country Than That” established Corbin as a mainstay on the country charts. Billboard’s 2010 Top New Country Artist would go on to garner another No. 1 hit with the feel-good “Roll with It” as well as seven top 10 singles, further distinguishing himself from other male vocalists as a tried-and-true country traditionalist who weaves timeless story songs together while tipping his hat to the classic country artists who have come before him. Though 2020 marked the 10th anniversary of "A Little More Country Than That" achieving No. 1 status, Corbin showed no signs of slowing down. With the release of his infectious single “Turn Up,” he launched a year of new releases, including “Didn't Miss A Beat” that he performed on NBC's TODAY Show. As he continues with this new chapter as an independent artist, Corbin says “A Little More Country Than That" still reflects who he is as an artist and where he sees his career going.

Saturday, August 12
Doors Open | 6:30 p.m.

Two Tons of Steel | 7:00 p.m. The San Antonio-based group packed the small bars and local hangouts and quickly became the Alamo City's most-loved band, earning them a spot on the cover of Billboard Magazine. Releasing "Two Tons of Steel" in 1994 and "Crazy for my Baby" in 1995 on Blue Fire Records, sponsorship deal with Lone Star Beer quickly followed. In 1996 they released "Oh No!" on their independent label, "Big Bellied Records.” They followed up the passion project with a live recording at the legendary Gruene Hall in Gruene, Texas. Love & Chaos | 8:15 p.m. Texas artists AJ Vallejo & Kendall Beard each have an impressive resume of experience in the music world. Vallejo fronting his heavy-touring Sony recording act Austin rock band, Vallejo. Kendall enjoyed national success as a finalist on Season 8 of Fox's American Idol and with her solo career. On their debut EP Love & Chaos, they combine a variety of styles. Their first single/video "Ready for War" mixes a funky backbeat groove with big harmonies, while their second single "Wildflower" (co-written with Willy Braun of Reckless Kelly) swings Americana & roots-rock together effortlessly.

Headliner Eli Young Band | 9:40 p.m.
Eli Young Band has always been unique in modern Country music - a true band of brothers who play their own instruments, write their own songs and cling fast to their Texas roots. With “LOVE TALKING” out now via The Valory Music Co., they embrace what makes them different once and for all. The trailblazing group has come a long way with a dynamic career thus far, producing Billboard's No. 1 Country Song of the Year and ACM Award for Song of the Year with “Crazy Girl,” plus racking up over 2 billion streams to earn Pandora Billionaire status. Multiple CMA, CMT, ACA and Teen Choice Award nominations along with more than 3 billion streams of their career cataloged offer an undeniable of EYB's unique connection with fans. Even through sonic evolutions and changes to the Country industry, their obsessive following has continued to grow.
