Get some details on these performers so you’ll know what to expect when they come to Beaver Dam, Kentucky.
Turnpike Troubadours – A Unique Brand of Country
Ask the Turnpike Troubadours what Merle Haggard would think of their music, and their answer is clear. He wouldn’t think these guys are a traditional country band. These guys might be a part of the Red Dirt movement, but they put songwriting first, and everything else is secondary. While some country superstars want to play to the rafters and get everyone up and dancing, the Turnpike Troubadours aspire to create something like Van Morrison’s “Moondance.” Does that mean these guys can’t play a stadium? Hardly. The band has been called one of the greatest country bands playing right now, and they tour relentlessly. Their songs are powerful and poignant, and they will even get you off your feet.
Chris Knight – The Late Bloomer
Chris Knight was a bit of a late bloomer. He worked as a mine reclamation inspector and consultant until he was 37 when he decided to follow his passion and give country music a try. He quickly found success as both a performer and a songwriter, and he now has eight albums under his belt. He’s built quite a following over the years and is even talking about coming out with a new album.

Shooter Jennings – Living Up to the Legend
Imagine growing up as Waylon Jennings’ son. Talk about having to come out from under someone else’s shadow. Well, Shooter Jennings has managed to do just that. He’s one of the best outlaw country performers, and his new album is among the most anticipated for 2018, according to Rolling Stone. Expect a stripped-down album that pays homage to his classic country roots. Maybe he will play some of his new songs when he takes the stage at the Beaver Dam Amphitheater.
