The latest list of acts announced to play the June 3-5 festival in Enterprise, Ala., includes two Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame members, one CMA winner and a big brass band.
The Rock Hall members playing this year’s BamaJam are Gregg Allman and blues giant Buddy Guy, while the CMA shout-out refers to the addition of the association’s 2005 vocalist of the year, Gretchen Wilson. New Orleans’ Dirty Dozen Brass Band has also been added to the lineup.
Other additions include Stoney LaRue, Robert Earl Keen, Wayne Mills Band, The Grascals, Lucero, The Wells and Rio Grande.
Artists previously announced for BamaJam include Hank Williams Jr, Zac Brown Band, Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Jamey Johnson, Travis Tritt, Randy Houser, Jake Owen, Chris Young, Rodney Atkins and Marty Stuart. Kenny Chesney headlines the festival’s last night, Saturday, June 5.
Like many multi-day music festivals, the earlier you buy your tickets, the more money you’ll save. For example, from March 13 until May 1, three-day general tickets for BamaJam are priced at $130 but shoot up to $16 from May 1 onward, and will jump $19 more at the gate.
For the first time in its history BamaJam is offering “premium preferred” seating, including a complimentary logo chair, in the “peanut gallery” section. For more information about this year’s BamaJam, click here for the festival’s Web site.
