Winstock ’14 lineup now complete; tickets selling fast

Tickets to the 21st annual Winstock Country Music Festival June 13-14 in Winsted, MN are selling fast, and the lineup is now complete with the addition of Texas native Katie Armiger, who will perform Saturday, June 14 on the Winstock Emerging Artist Stage.

Over the last six years, Armiger has been determinedly chipping away at the Nashville music system, making particular headway the last two. She landed a coveted performance slot on the Grand Ole Opry, a gig she calls “such a dream come true.” She also recently completed a 70-date college tour, which she amusingly titled the “Get Smart” tour. Armiger released her latest single, “Safe” earlier this year. The accompanying video for the tune honors first responders, who risk their lives every day to save other people. Fan votes also netted her the number-one spot in Country Weekly’s Hottest Bachelorette issue two years in a row, as well as the number-three slot in the magazine’s most beautiful women in country music list.

Armiger joins already-announced headliners Toby Keith (Saturday) and Rascal Flatts (Friday), along with Justin Moore, Billy Currington, Jerrod Niemann, Mel Tillis, Ashley Monroe, Danielle Bradbery, Chase Rice, and Krystal Keith. Regional acts set to perform at Winstock ’14 are Shane Martin Band, Maiden Dixie, Roadhouse 6, and the Tim Sigler Band. The complete Winstock 2014 schedule can be found HERE.

General admission tickets are available for $90 through the early-bird deadline Sunday, April 13 by calling 888-946-7865 or at www.winstockfestival.com. General admission tickets will be $105 after this date. VIP and reserved seating tickets, along with camping passes, for Winstock ’14 have sold out. Winstock reminds fans who have purchased camping passes but not yet purchased tickets to do so as soon as possible as this year’s Winstock is projected to sell out and tickets likely will not be available for purchase at the gate.

The Winstock Country Music Festival will take place at the festival grounds in Winsted Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, 2014. Find Winstock updates on Facebook, Twitter, and at www.winstockfestival.com

Justin Moore, Chase Rice and more added to Winstock ’14 lineup

An entertainer whose star is continually on the rise, Justin Moore has been announced as the final national main stage act for Winstock 2014, set for June 13-14 in Winsted, MN. The K102 Wakeup Crew announced Nov. 26 that Moore will perform immediately before Winstock ‘14 headliner Toby Keith Saturday, June 14. Donna and Muss also revealed that hot up-and-comer Chase Rice will perform on Winstock’s emerging Artist Stage Friday, June 13. Keeping it in the family, Krystal Keith, who is Toby’s daughter, will perform on the Emerging Artist Stage Saturday, June 14.

Arkansas native Moore has begun making his mark on the country radio charts with three number-one hits in the anything but big city “Small Town USA,” the sentimental family embracing “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” and the fidelity pledge “Til My Last Day,” in addition to the recent hit “Point at You.”

“We have heard some great things about Justin’s live shows, and we’re excited he’ll be part of Winstock ‘14,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Chairman Dave Danielson. “Chase Rice is also becoming increasingly-popular and will be the perfect fit for our Emerging Artist stage.”

Rice, the co-writer of the Florida Georgia Line hit “Cruise,” is also blazing his own trail into the country music world. After moving to Music City in late 2010, Rice recorded an album, Dirt Road Communion, on his own Dack Janiel’s label and quickly beat the odds. He landed it on the Billboard Country Album chart, and launched one of his singles, “How She Rolls,” onto Hot Country Songs. In a world dominated by corporations, that’s no small feat for an artist working on his own. “Cruise” literally re-wrote the country music history books, setting an all-time record by spending more weeks at number one on the country singles chart than any other song, and now Rice is writing his own country music history, one song and one show at a time.

No matter how compelling Krystal Keith’s voice, songwriting, self-titled EP and debut album Whiskey & Lace may be, there’s no getting around the shadow of a musical superstar in the room. Not that she’d want to, of course. Krystal’s father, Winstock Country Music Festival 2014 headliner Toby Keith contributed several songs and co-produced the project with Mark Wright.

“You can’t have a better mentor,” she said. “As a songwriter, as a vocalist – and he’s also my dad, so I get the best of all worlds wrapped up in one person.” Krystal made her national television debut in prime time as a teenager, singing “Mockingbird” with her father on a 2004 awards show.

Also announced were local acts Shane Martin Band, Maiden Dixie, Roadhouse 6, and Tim Sigler Band. Shane Martin will perform Thursday night in the beer tent from 7-11 p.m., Maiden Dixie will kick things off on the main stage Friday at 4:30, Roadhouse 6 will perform Friday night on the emerging artist stage at 5:45 p.m. and again Saturday during the always-popular pre-show beer tent party at 10:30 a.m., and Tim Sigler will open the main stage Saturday at 12:30 p.m.

Headliners Toby Keith (Saturday) and Rascal Flatts (Friday) will be joined at Winstock by Moore, Billy Currington, Jerrod Niemann, Mel Tillis, Ashley Monroe, Danielle Bradbery, Chase Rice, and Krystal Keith. One more emerging artist will be announced in the future.

The Winstock 2014 schedule can be found HERE.

The Winstock 2014 Rumble on the Road schedule has also been announced and can be found HERE. The Rumble on the Road features stops at area bars for top-notch music, drink specials, and visits from favorite radio personalities as we gear up for Winstock 2014.

Toby Keith, Rascal Flatts announced as Winstock ‘14 headliners

Toby Keith and Rascal Flatts were announced as the headliners for Winstock Country Music Festival 2014. A majority of the main stage lineup for the two-day country music and camping festival June 13-14 in Winsted was revealed this morning by the K102 Wakeup Crew.

Joining Toby Keith (Saturday) and Rascal Flatts (Friday) will be Billy Currington, Jerrod Niemann, Ashley Monroe, Mel Tillis, and Danielle Bradbery. One more main stage national act will be announced in the future, along with the regional acts and national emerging artists who will be appearing.

Toby Keith, presented by Ford F-Series, and Rascal Flatts bring a combined 46 number-one hits to the Winstock stage.

“Having these two top-of-the-line artists headline Winstock in 2014 is going to be a real treat for our fans,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Chairman Dave Danielson.

Building an unparalleled musical legacy, a vibrant career at the top levels of entertainment, and a business empire worthy of a Forbes cover isn’t easy, but it’s not complicated either. In Toby Keith’s case, there’s genius in the simplicity. Keith’s formula of continuing focus and musical discipline that has elevated his entertainment career, as well as ancillary businesses to support his efforts, will no doubt have Winstock goers raising their red Solo cups in salute when the Oklahoma native caps off Winstock’s 21st celebration.

Since their musical debut in 2000, Rascal Flatts has sold over 21 million albums, 25 million digital downloads, and delivered 14 number-one singles to the top of the charts. As one of the hottest-selling acts on tour in any genre, they’ve sold over 7 million concert tickets, and counting. The trio has been through almost a complete metamorphosis of the business aspects of their career over the past couple years, joining forces with a new record label and management team. What hasn’t changed is the soaring harmonies, superb musicianship, and their ability to write and select songs that speak to the hearts of their fans worldwide.

The Winstock 2014 headliners are complimented with radio mainstays Billy Currington (Friday) and Jerrod Niemann (Saturday), both who presently have songs on the charts and continue paving their way in the country music scene. Currington recently hit the number-one spot on the charts with “Hey Girl” and Niemann is quickly climbing the chart with “Drink to That All Night.” Ashley Monroe, performing Saturday at Winstock, is the real deal. Her songs resonate so profoundly because they reflect the experiences of an artist who, although she is just 27, has already seen both the best and worst that life has to offer.

A treat is in store for fans of the television show “The Voice” with the addition to the lineup of Season Four winner Danielle Bradbery (Friday), who became the highest selling and youngest artist in the show’s history. “The Heart Of Dixie” is following suit and is the first single from her soon to be released debut album on Big Machine Records. Coach Blake Shelton, who headlined Winstock ‘12, called Bradbery, “the most important artist to ever walk across The Voice stage.”

Winstock is honored to bring 2014 Heritage Act Mel Tillis (Saturday) to the stage for the first time. The consummate live performer and comedian is a true entertainer. Tillis has written well over 1,000 songs, and approximately 600 have been recorded by major artists. He has had thirty-six Top Ten singles, with nine of them going to number one. A childhood bout of malaria left him with a chronic stutter, a trait he turned to his advantage as part of his affable, down-home persona. His show is as much comedy as music, and people watching Tillis are guaranteed to be entertained.

The Winstock 2014 schedule can be found HERE. Watch for more acts to be announced in the coming months.

Tickets and more information
Tickets to Winstock ‘14 are now on sale, and can be purchased online at shop.winstockfestival.com or by calling 888-946-7865. When tickets went on sale Wednesday morning, Winstock’s VIP seating, along with campgrounds A and B, were sold out.

“The demand for tickets for 2014 was so high at the 2013 event that those three areas have already sold out,” Danielson said. “However, we have plenty of campsites, reserved seating, and general admission tickets available for those who want to enjoy Winstock ‘14.”

Winstock ‘13 was a complete sellout for the first time in its history, and organizers anticipate the same could easily happen in 2014. Fans are encouraged to place ticket orders early to guarantee their tickets and camp sites. General admission tickets cost $90 now through the April 13 earlybird deadline; reserved seating is $160, and camping passes are $100.

The Winstock committee and each Holy Trinity student expresses appreciation to all for the continuous support over the past 20 years.

Celebrating 20 years of Winstock: WINSTOCK ’13 RECAP

Winstock’s 20th anniversary celebration is history as reigning Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan and Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert took the stage for the first-ever Winstock sellout crowd of approximately 18,000 people.

“Our 20th anniversary will go down as the best ever,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Committee Chairman Dave Danielson. “It’s a no-brainer for anyone who was at Winstock why Luke Bryan was named entertainer of the year.”

Bryan performed a 90-minute set to close down the two-day show that also featured Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, 38 Special, Sawyer Brown, Neal McCoy, The Farm, Joel Crouse, Drake White, Charlie Worsham, the Greg Michaels Band, Maiden Dixie, Mitch Gordon and the Unleaded Band, and DiamondBack.

Lambert was a last-minute addition to the schedule, replacing the group Pistol Annies, of which Lambert is part of.

“We’re sorry to all the fans who were looking forward to the Pistol Annies, but I don’t think the female vocalist of the year Miranda Lambert let us down at all,” Danielson said. “We also brought back a couple tried-and-true favorites in Neal McCoy and Sawyer Brown, and they certainly lived up to their reputations as top-notch entertainers.”

The last three years of Winstock festivals have been locally dubbed the “triple crown of country music,” with popular artists Jason Aldean having performed in 2011, Blake Shelton in 2012, and now Luke Bryan this year.

The Winstock weekend weather overall stayed in line, despite a bit of rain Saturday evening and then again later into Sunday morning.

“As soon as the event was over, it started to rain,” Danielson said. “The Good Lord was with us again.”

With the sellout crowd also came a number of other sellouts – including things like food, mugs, and other merchandise items.

“We ran out of just about everything but beer,” Danielson said with a laugh. “We want to thank everybody for realizing this and bearing with us. It’s never happened before.”

Danielson said he’s glad the festival sold out at the 18,000 mark. Other than typical calls associated with an event of this nature, Danielson said there were no major incidents.

“We feel it was still a very safe and secure festival for all country fans who were there,” he said, adding “that even though space is limited, we’ll always strive to bring first-class entertainment to Winstock.”

Along with the first-class entertainment, Danielson is also quick to point out the first-class volunteer effort that more than 700 people offer to make Winstock happen.

“It’s impossible to put into words the gratitude we have for the entire Winsted community,” Danielson said. “The committee and all the students of Holy Trinity thank everyone who volunteers in any way and everyone who attends Winstock.”

WINSTOCK 2014

From High Noon to Kenny Chesney and The Farm, Winstock brings it all full circle for Nick Hoffman

After performing hundreds of sold-out, headline shows with Kenny Chesney, Nowthen, Minnesota-native Nick Hoffman still remembers stepping onto the Winstock Country Music Festival stage in 1999 as part of local favorite High Noon.

The fiddler extraodinare is bringing his band, The Farm, to the Winstock stage Saturday at 2:35 p.m.

“Playing Winstock with High Noon was, at that time, a dream come true for me because we were a well-known local band, but even at that level of a local act, we never got to play big, huge stages with national acts like that,” Hoffman recalled. Read the full interview with Hoffman HERE.

Winstock Country Music Festival SELLS OUT for first time

For the first time in its history, the Winstock Country Music Festival in Winsted, MN has completely sold out.

The sellout comes the Monday before the festival’s 20th anniversary celebration is set to get underway.

“It’s making our 20th anniversary very, very special,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Committee Chairman Dave Danielson. “Everything has sold out, and we’re just so happy that our fans are supporting our festival and the students of Holy Trinity.”

The sellout crowd will converge upon the festival grounds this weekend to hear music from headliners Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, along with Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, 38 Special, Sawyer Brown, Neal McCoy, The Farm, Joel Crouse, Drake White, Charlie Worsham, the Greg Michaels Band, Maiden Dixie, Mitch Gordon and the Unleaded Band, and DiamondBack.

The volunteer-run Winstock Country Music Festival began in 1994 as a fundraiser for Holy Trinity Catholic School in Winsted, MN. Headlining artists the first year were Waylon Jennings, Crystal Gayle, and Winsted native Paulette Carlson. Originally at the Winsted Municipal Airport, organizers moved the festival across the street to the current site in 1998.

The Emerging Artist Stage made its debut at Winstock in 2005, providing sets from Nashville’s hottest up-and-coming artists between main stage performances. Some of the artists who have graced the Emerging Artist Stage include Sugarland (‘05), Little Big Town (‘06), Lady Antebellum (‘08), and Randy Houser (‘09).

A permanent 24-foot-tall stage structure, built by RAM Buildings of Winsted in 2007, became the venue for artists like Reba McEntire, Brooks and Dunn, Alan Jackson, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton and many others to sing their hits to the Winstock audience. A reserved seating section was also added behind the VIP area in 2007.

Additional camping options were added to the festival in 1999, 2005, and again in 2009 with the addition of Campground E.

“Winstock would not be possible without the hundreds of volunteers we get every year to help us put on our festival,” Danielson said. “It’s a 100-percent volunteer effort, and without a lot of good people, we wouldn’t have made it this far.”

NO walk-up ticket sales will be available at this year’s event.

“It’s unfortunate for fans who haven’t bought a ticket, but we want to continue to provide fans with a safe and secure event,” Danielson added.

If you are unable to place your 2014 ticket order for Winstock at this year’s event, call 888-946-7865 by Monday, June 24 to renew or to place a new ticket order. After June 24,  watch www.winstockfestival.com to order your 2014 Winstock tickets this fall.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Pistol Annies are unable to appear for their scheduled tour dates in June, including the Winstock Country Music Festival Friday, June 7. However, Miranda Lambert plans to honor all of these engagements and perform for all the fans that purchased a ticket.

The reigning female vocalist of the year, as bestowed by both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music (three times each), Lambert will take the Winstock 20th anniversary celebration stage Friday, June 7 at 8:40 p.m.

Lambert’s fourth album, Four The Record, made history when it debuted atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart in 2011, making her the first country artist in the chart’s 47-year history to have each of her first four albums debut at number one. And it’s appropriate, perhaps, that its lead single was titled “Baggage Claim,” because Lambert carries quite the suitcase of honors.

In addition to the female vocalist of the year nods, she’s won the album of the year trophy from both organizations as well – from the ACMs for her second record, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend; from the CMAs and ACMs for her third, Revolution; and from the ACMs again for Four The Record, making her the first female artist ever to win that honor for three consecutive releases. She also took home the Best Female Country Vocal Performance trophy from the 2011 Grammy Awards for “The House That Built Me.”
