(WLNS) – The Common Ground Music Festival is announcing the first of its lineups for the 16th annual music festival. Taking the stage on Thursday, July 9th are country artists The Band Perry, Parmalee, and Old Dominion.
The Band Perry will headline the Auto Value Main Stage, bringing their beautiful harmonies to the banks of the Grand River. The 2010 release of their self-titled debut album The Band Perry brought 5 hit singles, including the chart-topping song “If I Die Young.”
Their second album, Pioneer, offered a combination of classic country and rock-and-roll sounds, and gearing them up for their upcoming third album. In their young careers, the sibling-trio has received multiple awards from The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, and The American Country Awards, including being named Vocal Group of the Year by the Academy of Country Music in 2014.
Also performing on country night will be the country-rock foursome, Parmalee. Once labeled as Clear Channel’s NEW! Artists to Watch in 2013, the band has elevated themselves to being nominated for The Academy of Country Music’s “New Artist of the Year” and “Choice Country Artist” at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards.
Country’s newest act heating up the charts is Old Dominion. Before recording their own music, the Nashville-based quintet’s songs were recorded and released by artists such as Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and fellow Common Ground performers The Band Perry.
