I guess there’s been quite a surge in male musicians/groups topping the charts in country music lately. “Bro Country” is one term that’s been coined to describe the phenomenon, in which songs focusing on beer/whiskey, pick up trucks and girls in skimpy summer wear get plenty of play.
Looking at the line-up for this year’s Craven Country Jamboree, it’s probably safe to say that the “Bro Country” contingent will come away satisfied.
People are already camped out there, I imagine, and the main stage shows get going on Friday July 10. The line-up that night features Wes Mack, John Michael Montgomery, Dallas Smith and Florida Georgia Line. Saturday, Lindsay Ell, Ricky Skaggs, Brett Kissel, Craig Morgan and Blake Shelton are feature artists, then on Sunday it’s Bobby Wills, the Bellamy Brothers, Colt Ford and Jason Aldean.
