“Our grand opening will be nothing short of spectacular, and we are looking forward to many more great performances in the months and years to come,” said Country Crossing developer Ronnie Gilley who is also known throughout the music biz as the president of Ronnie Gilley Entertainment.
“This is the first time in history that 20 artists, with a combined 120 million record sales and 66 No. 1 hits, will perform in three days at one venue – all free to the public,” Gilley said. “You won’t have to go to a big city anymore to find high-caliber entertainment.
