Along with all that international talent the Downtown Hoedown also features the best of the best of Detroit’s local country scene.

Over the years the Downtown Hoedown has hosted Garth Brooks, Reba McEntire, Dixie Chicks, Montgomery Gentry and virtually everyone who has sat at the top of the country charts during the past two decades.
