Mary Chapin Carpenter – 7/27 – buy tickets

Dierks Bentley– 8/6 – buy tickets
To date, Dierks Bentley has scored 17 number one hits like “What Was I Thinkin’,” “I Hold On” and “Black” and 13 Grammy nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums.

Brantley Gilbert– 8/10 – buy tickets
Brantley Gilbert is one of only four country artists with back-to-back platinum certified albums among greats like Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.

Brothers Osborne – 9/5 – buy tickets
The Brothers Osborne are a chart-topping country duo of actual brothers T.J. and John. With hits like “Stay a Little Longer” and the collaboration “Burning Man” with Dierks Bentley, the Brothers Osborne are one of country’s fastest-rising groups! See them under the stars outdoors at the Yuengling Summer Concert Series!
The Mavericks – 10/27 – buy tickets
While The Mavericks often defy genre, they have had 14 songs chart on the Billboard country lists since forming in 1989. Expect an eclectic, energetic performance in the Musikfest Cafe presented by Yuengling!
The Zmed Brothers bring a genuine and youthful Everly Brothers Experience to SteelStacks. The Everly Brothers bridged the gap between country and R&B, creating Rock ‘n’ Roll that had never been heard before.
See all of you cowgirls and cowboys this summer!
