Canada's Craven Country Jamboree to Feature Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw + More
Mon, 03 Jun 2013 13:00:11
The Craven Country Jamboree has been running for 30 years and is labeled the "World's Greatest Country Music Festival" and the lineup certainly backs that claim up.
The event will feature Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and more, and will run from July 11 through July 14 in Craven, Saskatchewan. Once again, longtime weekend hosts, Williams and Ree, will serve as festival ambassadors.
"This may be the lineup to end all lineups," said Troy Vollhoffer, executive producer of Craven Country Jamboree. "We are always proud to bring the biggest and the best acts that are available, but this year I think we've outdone ourselves. The lineup is deep with a great mix of young, classic, and a trio of superstars. There is definitely something here for everyone. It's going to be an explosive show in 2013."
