LEWISBURG, Tenn. – Goats, Music and More Festival, honoring the famous “fainting” goats of Marshall County returns with a music lineup, entertainment and family-friendly activities Oct. 12-13 at
Rock Creek Park in Lewisburg, just 50 miles south of Nashville.
On Friday, the festival kicks into gear with Fainting (Myotonic) and Boer Goat shows, kids’ games and rides, arts and crafts, vendors, food and musical entertainment. Musical artists from across the region will perform throughout Friday, leading up to a free concert by Billboard chart-topper, Tyler Farr.
Tyler Farr released his sophomore album, Suffer In Peace earlier this year which debuted in the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums and Billboard’ Country Albums charts. His first single off the newly released Suffer In Peace album, “A Guy Walks into a Bar,” is currently in the Top 5 at country radio and is RIAA Certified GOLD. His debut album, Redneck Crazy landed him at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200, making Farr the only solo male country artist in the last 10 years to have his first two studio albums debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart. His No. 1, platinum-selling, title-track “Redneck Crazy” was called the “song of the summer” by New York Times and projected Farr forward to celebrate back-to-back No. 1 singles, including his first No. 1 as a songwriter, with his Gold-certified hit “Whiskey in My Water.” He’s earned recognition like 2014 CRS New Faces of Country Radio and 2014 Music Row “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” nominations, as well as rave reviews for his openings slots for Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert and Lee Brice. Farr has appeared on The Today Show and Fox & Friends’ All American Summer Concert Series.
Breakthrough country artist, Jimmie Allen performs followed by Craig Campbell Saturday night.
Jimmie Allen has gone from living in his car to rocking amphitheaters on Toby Keith’s Interstates & Tailgates Tour and appearing in a Diet Coke ad with Taylor Swift. But now with the BBR Music Group debut of his self-titled EP, a lifetime of never giving up has brought him full circle. Allen’s EP is a mix of country, rock, R&B, and pop produced by Ash Bowers and Eric Torres. “Underdogs” and “Best Shot” reveal Allen’s true story of laying it all on the line, while “Back Home to You,” “Back of Your Mind,” and “Blue Jean Baby” find the singer-songwriter reflecting on his journey to the spotlight – with all the love he left behind and romantic hopes included.
Craig Campbell began his music career playing keyboard in his mother’s church and then touring with Luke Bryan, eventually landing a coveted bandleader gig in the famous Nashville honky-tonk, The Stage. Starting in 2010, “Family Man” and “Outta My Head” both cracked the Top 15 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, while “Fish” snagged more than 10 million on-demand streams. “Keep Them Kisses Comin’” became a Top 10 hit. Along the way he became a regular on the Grand Ole Opry and appeared on The Today Show, supported the USO and sang “American Anthem” for Macy’s 2017 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular. Then, in a fitting full-circle moment, Campbell hit the road with Bryan once again for his 2017 Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day Tour.
Fainting and Boer Goat shows occur each day of the festival in the goat show tents. Attendees can enjoy the 5K Goat Gallop, the three-legged goat triathlon, kids games and rides, arts and crafts and great food.
The Goats, Music and More Festival has been named three times as one of the Top 20 Events to see by the Southeast Tourism Society. Attendees from all 50 states and five countries have come each year to enjoy everything this festival has to offer.
