The Marshall Tucker Band will join the lineup of acts performing at the Carolina Country Music Fest being held in Myrtle Beach in June.
Event organizers on Wednesday announced the addition of the band, whose members are from Spartanburg, as well as a list of other “new artists and up-and-comers” from the Carolinas to join Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Rascal Flatts and others at the three-day festival held June 5 to 7.
South Carolina artists Outshyne and Ricky Young, and North Carolina native Brian Davis will play at the festival. Organizers also announced artists Mo Pitney, Dee Jay Silver and John King had been added to the lineup.
About 35 acts are expected to perform at the festival, which will be held on the former Myrtle Beach Pavilion property between Eighth and Ninth avenues North and Kings Highway and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk and Promenade.
