Groundwater Country Music Festival has announced its second line-up which will see US country-rockers Davisson Brothers Band and local Gold-Coast talent such as Casey Barnes join an already impressive line-up including Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole and The Wolfe Brothers.
Groundwater has today added a wide variety of top shelf country artists to its 2019 line-up including authentic and passionate US country music stars Davisson Brothers Band, Far From Folsom songs of Johnny Cash featuring Tex Perkins And the Tennessee Four with Rachel Tidd, Graeme Connors, Casey Barnes, Drew McAlister, Freya Josephine Hollick, The Viper Creek Band, Hayley Jensen, Amber Joy Poulton and many more.
These artists will join the likes of Australian country king Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole, The Wolfe Brothers, Adam Eckersley Band, and Felicity Urquhart.
“Groundwater will continue to give country music the respect it deserves , paying tribute to classic moments in the genre’s history with The Songs of Johnny Cash, celebrating story tellers like Graeme Connors and Drew McAlister, encouraging breaking acts and welcoming international guests like the Davisson Brothers Band to join the party…It’s going to be a big year,” said Festival Director Mark Duckworth.
The Gold Coast is represented too, with local Gold Coast country rocker Casey Barnes returning to Groundwater after being a 2018 Golden Guitar Finalist and performing alongside international stars like Mariah Carey, Lady Antebellum and Bryan Adams, as well as recently headlining the Gold Coast Music Awards. Another Gold Coast act performing at Groundwater this year is emerging 22-year-old artist Chloe Styler whose unique and captivating voice has been compared to Lisa Mitchell and Julia Stone. Chloe performed as an opening act for Lee Kernaghan in 2017, was a Grand Finalist in the 39th Annual Toyota Star Maker competition in 2018 and a Queensland Music Award finalist this year.
The family-friendly event will be held on the Gold Coast on 26-28 July where nearly 50 acts will perform across 15 stages throughout Broadbeach’s bars, restaurants, streets and parks, allowing you to sit down and relax while listening to some of the biggest names in country music perform.
