So, about the lineup: “The Limestone Kid” himself, Parker McCollum, will headline this year’s festival, which is Saturday, May 1st, back on the brick streets of Downtown Tyler. McCollum had a breakout year in 2020, despite the pandemic, landing his first Country Billboard No. 1 single with "Pretty Heart." He’ll be joined by Texas Country superstars Josh Abbott Band, who headlined the festival in 2015, along with Red Dirt legends Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Randall King, and East Texas native Chris Colston.

A few answers to questions you may already have:

  • If you bought your tickets for 2020 and have not asked for a refund, your previously purchased tickets have already been updated to the new May 1st date. Log in to your EventBrite app and you will see them there.
  • Layout and entrance are changing. To alleviate the overcrowding on College, the stage will be placed in front of the courthouse so that there will be no bad seat on the Square. Therefore, the front entrance will now be on College at Erwin instead of Broadway & Erwin.
  • Masks are encouraged, but not required and we will have a stock of them at the gate just in case.
  • We will have hand sanitizer spread throughout the venue and are doubling the number of handwashing stations this year.
