Country Thunder USA Festival


Neal McCoy and newcomers KingBilly and Gloriana added to the lineup this week; New festival ownership preparing the grounds for a completely retooled weekend country music party

(Nashville, TN) – The 17th Annual Country Thunder USA festival, held in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin July 15-18, 2009 will be showcased on Great American Country television network. GAC festival hostess SUZANNE ALEXANDER will be filming from the festival grounds - visiting with country music stars and their fans for GAC Nights and GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown. (Actual airdates / times TBD)

Also announced today are three ‘new’ performers – superstar Neal McCoy will play for a full 90 minutes Friday night in the all-ages Howlin’ Coyote Dance Hall following Alan Jackson’s main stage performance. Newcomers Gloriana and GAC’s web series stars KingBilly will also entertain. KingBilly is scheduled for 10:30pm Wednesday, Gloriana at 10:30pm Thursday.

“We’re so excited to be partnered with such a great country television network. We couldn’t be happier – having GAC on-hand to celebrate the weekend with us… and with the great lineup. Adding Neal McCoy will make Friday night a huge party – and he puts on an incredible show. We’ve made a lot of changes this year – from traffic routing, to a less-cluttered festival ‘bowl’ area, more vendors, cheaper concessions and keeping the price low,” said festival Executive Producer Brian Andrews.

General Admission ticketholders will get closer access to the stage – as VIP and reserved seating areas have been reduced to allow for those who cannot afford those seats to get up, close and personal to their favorite performers with their four-day general admission pass.
