Grand American FishRodeo to Feature Several Outstanding Country Music Acts

One of a kind event to feature local, national artists

LANSING - Today, event organizers at the Michigan Institute for Contemporary Art (MICA) announced the country music lineup for the inaugural Grand American FishRodeo, a brand new summer event that will be held along the shores of the Grand River in Lansing, June 12-14.

"We're looking forward to welcoming amazing country musicians from all over the country to the first Grand American FishRodeo," said Terry Terry, co-founder and president of MICA. "The FishRodeo will be a celebration of Michigan's place as the water wonderland, but we also have a rich tradition of creativity and self-expression. A few of these acts are familiar to country music fans in Michigan, but there will be some outstanding national acts as well."

The Grand American FishRodeo will feature country music in the evening on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, June 12-14. A $20 music pass will get attendees access to all 3 nights of country music, including a wristband for the Watering Hole (beverage tent). Country music fans can also pay $10 to enjoy one night of music.

Thursday we'll be listening to Dial Dixie and Kris Hitchcock & Small Town Son, independent artist whose latest album is filled with memories, stories and rock-tinged country straight from America's Heartland. Friday night we'll first welcome the Grammy nominated North Country Flyers, an Americana band with Pure Michigan blue water roots. We'll close out Friday with Annabelle Road, a joyful, barnstorming band that fuses the best of rock and country seamlessly to their polished originals. 

Finally, we'll wrap up the FishRodeo Saturday night with local trio Bitter Creek and the Midnight Cattle Callers, followed by Clare Dunn, an outstanding vocalist and artist who is involved with every aspect of the creative process that goes into making her record.

Organizers are looking forward to creating this one of a kind, all-new grand event this summer.
