CAROLINA COUNTRY MUSIC FEST
Well kids, it’s that time of year again. If you like traffic jams, humidity, lots and lots and lots of people in Daisy Dukes and Lynyrd t-shirts, and oh yeah, some AMAZING COUNTRY MUSIC, then boy, do we have the event for you!
The second annual Carolina Country Music Fest is rolling into town Thursday through Sunday.
The multi-day festival will feature some of the biggest names in country music as well as several up-and-coming artists. This year’s headliners will be Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, Kelsea Ballerini, Chase Rice and many more.
For those of you uninformed individuals, Carolina Country Music Fest will be held in a beautiful oceanside vacant lot in the middle of Myrtle Beach.

The main stage will be at the beach/boardwalk side of the site with the second stage close to everybody’s favorite highway, U.S. 501.
