Carolina Country Music Fest Adds Big & Rich to Lineup in Myrtle Beach

Just when you thought the lineup for the Third Annual Carolina Country Music Fest couldn’t get any better, concert organizers recently made it even bigger and richer with the addition of legendary country duo Big & Rich. And just when you thought a Myrtle Beach vacation at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort couldn’t get any better, we are making it even more affordable.

Guests who book their reservations at Compass Cove for the June 8-11 Carolina Country Music Fest in downtown Myrtle Beach can save up to 40 percent off the regular room rate, as well as earn discounted general admission and VIP tickets to CCMF by booking them through us. For beach lovers and country music fans, it all adds up to a perfect summer getaway without busting your travel budget.

In addition to CCMF’s recent announcement of an appearance by Big & Rich, who have delivered chart-topping hits with “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” “Comin’ to Your City” and “Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace,” this year’s CCMF boasts the most impressive list of stars yet. The headliners are South Carolina’s own Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean, and undercard artists include Billy Currington, Kip Moore, Lee Brice, Chris Young and Dee Jay Silver – all contributing to a total of about 35 bands.

Rucker, a Charleston native with deep local ties, was the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for popular 1990s rock band Hootie & The Blowfish, which played at small clubs on the Grand Strand before they hit it big. His crossover to country music to become a solo artist has been a successful one, earning him three Grammy Awards and one Country Music Association New Artist of the Year title. Rucker has had No. 1 hits with “Wagon Wheel,” “Alright,” “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” and “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.”

Chesney is famous for putting on great live shows, and his fan following, the “No Shoes Nation,” is sure to be on hand to experience his unique Caribbean-country sound with the Myrtle Beach oceanfront serving as the backdrop to the stage. The eight-time CMA Entertainer of the Year will perform many of his 28 chart-topping hits, such as “No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems,” “When the Sun Goes Down,” “American Kids,” “Save It For A Rainy Day,” “You & Tequila” and “Anything But Mine.”

Aldean, who is rated as the most downloaded male country artist of all time by the Recording Industry Association of America, has produced 17 No. 1 singles, including his latest hit, “A Little More Summertime.” He recently released his seventh studio album, “They Don’t Know,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. A headliner for the June 8 kickoff concert and other acts for the three-day main event are still to be announced, but the star-studded lineup that has already been released has tickets going fast.

Featuring two stages and three days of non-stop music, CCMF has fans flocking to downtown Myrtle Beach to see great artists performing in front of the Atlantic Ocean. Located about two miles down Ocean Boulevard from the old Myrtle Beach Pavilion site, Compass Cove Resort gives guests a convenient spot to stay for the show as well as outstanding accommodations and amenities. Enjoy our waterslides, indoor/outdoor pool deck, on-site dining at the Compass Rose and Tiki Bar, and private balconies for relaxing before and after the show.
