THE STEELDRIVERS HEADLINE 10th ANNUAL

SEVIERVILLE BLOOMIN’ BARBEQUE & BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL

 

Sevierville, Tenn. – Sevierville’s Bloomin’ Barbeque & Bluegrass (May 16 & 17, 2014) festival has announced the entertainment lineup for its tenth annual event, including a headline performance from rising bluegrass supergroup, The SteelDrivers.

 

Festivities and music get underway in downtown Sevierville, Tennessee on Friday, May 16 at 5p.m. with a live performance from Grammy winning and national fingerpicking champion, Bill Mize. The Jeanette Williams Band and Jimbo Whaley & Greenbrier  will follow Mize before Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out  close out Friday night’s show.

 

On Saturday, the festivities get started with 13-year old banjo phenomenon Willow Osborne, five-time IBMA vocalist of the year Dale Ann Bradley and Chris Jones & The Night Drivers, led by SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction show host Chris Jones. Living legend Bobby Osborne & Rocky Top Xpress will also perform two shows as part of his “Celebration Tour” recognizing his 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. All total, Osborne’s career has spanned more than 60 years with numerous highlights including his 1967 recording of “Rocky Top” – the version which became an official state song of Tennessee.  Saturday evening’s headliner, the SteelDrivers, whose fans range from Vince Gill to Adele, (she began performing their song “If It Hadn’t Been for Love” in 2011 during her live shows) promise to cap off an incredible weekend of bluegrass. The SteelDrivers have performed on a variety of stages ranging from the Grand Ole Opry to the Conan O’Brien Show.

 

“We are very proud of the lineup we’re offering for our 10th anniversary of the Bloomin’ Barbeque & Bluegrass festival,” says Sevierville Chamber of Commerce marketing director Amanda Marr.  “We have a solid lineup of quality artists – everyone from Grammy winners and Grand Ole Opry legends to wildly popular up-and-coming groups, like the SteelDrivers.
