Location: Main Stage at 18th Street Park

Additional Info:

Jason Lee McKinney is a two time nationally signed recording artist, powerhouse vocalist, and songwriter. McKinney blends a snarling musical underbelly full of equal parts trained prowess and an almost out of control piss and vinegar attitude; soaring sing-along hook melodies, with lyrics that are raw and raucous, reflective and radiant; simultaneously weaving a narrative that is both uniquely his and everyman’s story.

He is an intellectual troubadour who writes and sings from the depths of an earthy soul; all with a business resume that would match most C level executives. McKinney holds a Doctorate, an MBA, and BA in Management. McKinney’s dissertation is a comparative study of downscoped specialization versus centralized diversification as organizational strategies in the transforming recording business.

Brandon Whyde

Date/Time: Saturday, June 16, 7:30pm
Location: Main Stage at 18th Street Park

Additional Info:

On his new album, Silver Apples of the Moon, Brandon Whyde gives listeners a glimpse into his past — a past that includes heartbreak, loss and self-discovery. His voice has been described as soulful, whiskey-soaked and even “a freight train on fire” – qualities that shine through on his latest release.

Silver Apples of the Moon was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Jimmy Nutt in Muscle Shoals, Ala. – an area known as “The Shoals” – the album includes some of the veteran musicians who helped The Shoals earn acclaim as a hotbed of musical talent. Spooner Oldham, who played keyboards on Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” and as part of several of Neil Young’s projects and Bob Wray, who’s played bass on more than 30 #1 country hits, are just a few of the artists appearing on Silver Apples of the Moon. The SteelDrivers frontman, Gary Nichols, makes a special guest appearance on the song “Self-Medicated”.

The album — Whyde’s third full-length release — includes rollicking melodies and mournful ballads, showcasing his vocal range. On autobiographical tracks like “Self-Medicated” and “Ain’t I A Man,” his lyrics focus on some of the more challenging moments of his life, including his father’s death, a friend’s struggle with addiction and the uncertainty of his early career.

Whyde is currently on tour in support of Silver Apples of the Moon, set to release on Sept. 19, 2017. When he’s not touring, he focuses on songwriting and has co-written songs with Grammy-winning country songwriter Clint Lagerberg and modern Americana music stars Jamie Kenney, Tony Lucca and James LeBlanc.

Corey Cox

Date/Time: Saturday, June 16, 9:00pm
Location: Main Stage at 18th Street Park

Additional Info:

While on the road and splitting time between his home state of Indiana and Nashville, TN the past 10 years, Corey has performed more than 1,000 shows and shared the stage with Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Love and Theft, and Chris Young at prestigious music venues, tours, rodeos, fairs and festivals across the country. Continuing his rapid climb in the country music world over the past several years, Corey opened for country legend Toby Keith at Klipsch Music Center (Deer Creek) in Indiana, warmed up thousands of race fans prior to Blake Shelton on Legends’ Day for the 100th running of the Indy 500 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, took his music to the Caribbean as part of the “Country Cruising” voyage, performed at the Faster Horses Festival and Chicago’s Windy City Smokeout, performed for tens of thousands of fans in the Super Bowl XLVI Village, and secured a major sponsorship with Coors Banquet beer. Corey has built his reputation as one of country music’s young stars through his relatable lyrics, contagious songs, and energetic live shows – a combination that has attracted a strong and loyal following.

Corey’s latest single is a remake of the timeless and nostalgic Strawberry Wine. Originally recorded by country artist Deana Carter in 1996, Corey gives this innocent love ballad a modern vibe and a male perspective on first love.  Having written the majority of songs he’s recorded, Corey and his band started playing this classic song live awhile back to mix up his set list. One of his all-time favorite songs, done his way, has now become a regular request from his fans.

In September 2015, Corey released Light It Up, a six-song EP produced by Thom Daugherty – known in his own right for guitar work in the rock band The Elms and then in the touring lineup of the Band Perry. The video for Mistakes You Don’t Make, off of the EP, continues to generate thousands of views on social media, featuring live footage from Corey’s shows at Klipsch Music Center and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Wake Up Drunk, the breakthrough single from Corey played on 100+ radio stations with more than 500,000 spins online, was co-written with Joe Denim – musician, comedian and songwriter of some of country music’s biggest hits. This hooky-as-hell single followed the third CD from Corey, Good Night Comin’ On, which includes 6 tracks, all written by Corey himself, capturing unforgettable coming-of-age moments that are relatable for anyone at any age, in any life situation. Available on iTunes, Corey co-produced the album with Dave McAffee. Dave is known as drummer and band leader of Toby Keith’s Easy Money Band and as one of the Kent Hardly Playboys, a group of guys recognized as co-producers on the Grammy-nominated Jamey Johnson albums, That Lonesome Song and The Guitar Song.
