Polish up your cowgirl boots and crimp the brim in your cowboy hats because the sixth annual Carolina Country Music Fest returns to the Myrtle Beach oceanfront in only a matter of months.
And with the recent release of this year’s CCMF headline acts, tickets to the June 4-7 event, as well as accommodations at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort, are not going to last long. As the official hotel sponsor for CCMF, Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort is offering special packages that allow guests to save money on concert tickets and lodging when both are booked in advance.
The 2020 CCMF looks to be one of the best and brightest ever thanks to a star-studded lineup, featuring country music icons Darius Rucker, Eric Church and Luke Combs serving as headliners.
They will be among the 30-plus country acts performing in the heart of the downtown district at the Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place, where more than 35,000 fans turn out annually to see their favorite stars on stage with the scenic Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop.
The festival provides three separate stages for three days and four nights of non-stop live music by some of today’s top country artists, as well as souvenir vendor tents, food and beverage stands and other fun activities. The 2020 CCMF is sure to sell out, particularly with a trio of headliners with strong local and regional followings expected to pack the festival grounds.
South Carolina native Darius Rucker returning the stage for the first time since 2017. Rucker began playing gigs at local beach bars in the 1990s as the frontman for the rock band Hootie & The Blowfish before the Grammy Award-winning act hit the big time. His transition from pop star to country solo artist has met even more success, including the 2009 Country Music Association’s Top New Artist Award. Rucker’s rendition of “Wagon Wheel” has sparked a run of No. 1 hits, like “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” and “It Won’t Be Like This For Long.”
Also making a repeat performance at CCMF after playing the inaugural show in 2015, Eric Church returns to Myrtle Beach following five years of skyrocketing up the country charts. The seven-time Academy of Country Music Award and three-time Country Music Association Award winner was just breaking into mainstream country music with his album “Mr Misunderstood” when he appeared at the first CCMF, and the North Carolina native has since gone on to record No. 1 country singles such as “Drink In My Hand,” “Springsteen,” “Homeboy,” and “The Only Way I Know.”
Another breakout artist hailing from the border state of North Carolina, country rocker Luke Combs, closes out a night at CCMF in what is sure to be a wild one. The CMA and ACM Award-winner and multi-platinum artist has a run of No. 1 hits to his credit, including “Hurricane,” ìWhen It Rains It Pours,” “One Number Away,” “She Got The Best of Meî and “Beautiful Crazy.”
Other announced acts include chart-topping artists like Chris Janson, Ashley McBryde, Jake Owen, Jon Pardi, Mitchell Tenpenny and many more. More artists will be released in coming days.
Although the scheduled days the acts will appear has not yet been released, the 2020 CCMF will kick off Thursday, June 4, with a special opening evening of live country music. The next three days will be all country music from day to night, allowing visitors to catch all their favorites in action at various stages throughout the Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place complex.
