Crossroads Stage: Meet the Artists

Crossroads Stage is one of many additions at this year’s Country Fest. The stage has nearly been doubled in size, includes a stage for dancing, and is filled with a rustic-country feel.

But more important than how the stage is decorated, let’s talk about all the amazing artists performing Crossroads.

Neal McCoy

There’s no country music performer who likes to get in with the crowd more than Neal McCoy, and the Crossroads Stage is the perfect setup. A patriot at heart, he’ll stand for what he believes in, and won’t let you down. See Neal on Crossroads Friday night!

Sawyer Brown

No doubt, Sawyer Brown will draw a crowd to the top of the hill when headlining Crossroads on Thursday night. The energetic band will surely get us all dancing on stage with their country hits, “The Race Is On,” “Thank God For You,” and “Six Days On The Road,” to name a few.

Lauren Alaina

She’s one of country music’s hottest acts, recently being named ACM’s New Female Vocalist of the Year. Yes, she’s collaborated with Kane Brown, but she’s stunning on her own, and Crossroads will be lit up brightly with her vocals carrying across Country Fest concert grounds. Take the road up the hill to see Lauren headline Crossroads Saturday night.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band

With just over a week to Wednesday’s Kick-Off party, it’s just over a week ‘till “Fishin’ in the Dark” is dancing across the concert grounds. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band headlines Crossroads Stage at 10:00 p.m. Kick off Country Fest with your 3-day ticket and one heck of a party!

Joe Diffie

Chances are you’re excited to see Joe Diffie, whether you got your first truck when you were three or five or drove 100k miles on your knees or not (see what I did there?). And he’s kind of a local guy, spending middle school and his first two years of high school in Whitehall, Wis.

Russell Dickerson

There isn’t a place Russell Dickerson feels more comfortable than onstage performing for his fans, delivering one of his notoriously amped-up live shows. He gets hooked on the energy, Crossroads stage is the perfect stage at Country Fest, where he’ll let it all out for you, up close.

James Barker Band

As you may know Country Fest for the notorious lawn chair races, you know James Barker Band for their breakout single “Lawn Chair Lazy.” JBB will be performing Crossroads Saturday evening at 5:15. Their songs focus on good times and good people, and they’re a show you’re going to want to grab all your friends and check out.


This is your summer, this is your music. This is your #happyplace. We’ll see you soon!



Let's all go to our Happy Place. #countryfest2020
