Country music concerts are back on the schedule. Colorado will be holding its annual country music festival. And it’s attracting some pretty big names like Carrie Underwood and Luke Combs.
Country Jam, the state’s largest country music festival, is coming back after a year hiatus. Colorado canceled last year’s festival due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But with mass vaccine rollout underway, the state is dusting off its cowboy hats and blue jeans. For entertainment starved country music fans, the concert looks to be a blessing this summer.
“We are so excited to have secured such an incredible lineup of premier artists for Country Jam this year,” festival producer Gil Cunningham told 9News. “It’s a true testament to the power of country music, and its artists and fans.”
And what a lineup that is. The country music festival is combining the star power of Luke Combs, Carrie Underwood, and Toby Keith for a roaring good time. All three country music stars will headline their respective nights. Combs will play on Thursday, followed by Keith on Friday, and Underwood on Saturday of the three-day festival.
They’ll be joined by a host of other performers as well. Artists include Tanya Tucker, Stephanie Quayle, Lainey Wilson, Kip Moore, Craig Morgan, Drew Parker, Ashely McBryde, Travis Denning, and others. Stephanie Quayle is a rising country star, who released her newest single earlier this year.
Colorado Brings Back Country Music
So when can country music fans expect to jam? The festival will run this summer from June 24 to June 26. The concerts will be held at Jam Ranch in Mack on Colorado’s Western Slope near Grand Junction. Mack is around 260 miles away from Denver.
This will also mark the festival’s 29th year in Mack, Colorado. The festival has garnered a reputation for attracting premier country music talent this year. Some were worried the state may cancel the festival for a second consecutive year. But country music seems to be coming back in a big way.
“Country Jam will be one for the books for all of us as one of the first major festival events of 2021,” said Cunningham. “I am privileged to have the opportunity to work, once again, alongside the entire Grand Junction Community, as well as my incredible team at Neste Live, to bring the ultimate open-air camping and concert festival experience to Colorado.”
For those that purchased tickets in 2020, the festival announced those tickets will be valid for the 2021 festival. Additionally, if you purchased tickets but are unable to attend, the festival will offer a full refund to those affected.
Tickets will go on sale on April 2 at 10 a.m. MT. A general admission three day pass starts at $125.
