A new country music festival is coming to Burl’s Creek event grounds in Oro-Medonte this summer.

On July 20, country music legends Alabama, Diamond Rio and Travis Tritt will perform at the inaugural Big Sky Music Festival.

Big Sky Music Festival is produced by Republic Live, the same company responsible for the wildly popular Boots and Hearts country music festival.

“We are thrilled to add Big Sky Music Festival to our roster of events at Burl’s Creek this year,” co-founder Eva Dunford said in a news release. “In our inaugural year, Big Sky will welcome three of country music’s most influential acts on one stage.”
