Diamond Rio and Charlie Daniels Band to Headline September Landfest Festival in Georgia

With the hope of giving fans something to look forward to amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Dailey & Vincent and the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds have announced today the full Artist lineup for their annual LandFest In The Mountains & On The Lakes music festival, presented by Springer Mountain Farms and celebrating the best of American music. The festival, which will return to Hiawassee, Ga. September 17-19, will be adapting to the “new normal” amidst health concerns – and the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds has guaranteed that it will refund all ticket buyers if the festival is unable to take place due to any government-mandated orders.

“The wellness of our fans is of paramount importance to us,” Dailey & Vincent said in a joint statement. “These times are trying times – we’re excited to give fans a ‘light at the end of the tunnel,’ while still taking care to prioritize their health and safety.”

This year’s festival will feature performances by the GRAMMY®-nominated group, along with headliners Charlie Daniels, Diamond Rio, Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers, Dailey & Vincent, and a special 2-hour Salute to the Grand Ole Opry featuring Opry Stars Bill Anderson, Jeannie Seely, Dailey & Vincent, comedian Karen Mills, and hosted by the iconic and legendary Eddie Stubs. The lineup is rounded out by the Booth Brothers, Bradley Walker, Mike Snider, the Gibson Brothers, the Malpass Brothers, and the winner of Dailey & Vincent’s annual LandFest Online Band Contest will also join the lineup.

Each year, Dailey & Vincent curate the festival lineup in much the same way they’ve developed their career over the last decade; delivering music fans an evolved combination of “the best of bluegrass, country and gospel this side of heaven” (USA Today), what the band defines as American Music. Their unique marriage of genres has made them three-time GRAMMY® nominees in country, bluegrass, and for a gospel record, earned them membership with the prestigious Grand Ole Opry, garnered nine #1 country, bluegrass and gospel Billboard charting records, and helped launch their national weekly television series The Dailey & Vincent Show, now in its fourth year on RFD-TV.
