Are you ready for some great country fun? The Las Cruces Country Music Festival is back this fall for another weekend of legendary country music October 19-21, 2018!
The festival kicks off Friday, October 19 with a stellar lineup featuring Dwight Yoakam, Frankie Ballard and King Leg on the south stage. The trio has accounted for dozens of country hits and awards including Yoakam’s two Grammys, five number one singles and nine platinum albums.
On Saturday night, the festivities continue with country stars Randy Houser, Sawyer Brown, and rising star Brennin Hunt. Houser, a nine-time nominated CMT and ACM recipient, has charted country hits like: “Anything Goes”, “Boots On”, “Whistlin’ Dixie”, “I’m All About It”, and many more. Sawyer Brown has success in the 1980s and 1990s with hits like “Leona”, “Some Girls Do”, and “Thank God for You”.
Opening on Saturday will be Brennin Hunt, who is an actor and musician best known for the role of Sullivan Fitzgerald on the hit television series “Nashville”.
Sunday will feature regional artists, as well a performance by Grammy award winning Rick Trevino. Trevino’s debut single, “Just Enough Rope”, was the first mainstream country music single to feature separate English and Spanish-language versions. He went on to chart 14 singes on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, reaching number one in 1997 with “Running Out of Reasons to Run”.
Over on the north stage, local and regional favorites will keep the music going in between acts on the south stage.
In addition to all the great music, the festival will feature plenty of activities for the entire family including food, vendors, and a free kid’s area with activities for kids of all ages.
