The Hoedown Star reunion is something I’ve wanted to do for many years and it will be a lot of fun. We are also thrilled to have Kentucky native Kelsie May, who many will recognize from The Voice. Former Hoedown Star winner Branden Martin’s original music is a real treat for all those who love traditional country music, we are so happy he is in Nashville writing and performing. Nicholas Jamerson (former lead singer for Sundy Best) is a popular addition to the lineup, as is the high energy performance we will see from County Wide.”
