Dixie Chicks Replace Lady Antebellum at Craven Country Jamboree

Organizers of the Craven Country Jamboree thrilled  country fans this week with the announcement of the Saturday headline acts for their 2013 concert – the Dixie Chicks.

When Lady Antebellum was forced to cancel their appearance due to Hillary Scott’s pregnancy, the organizers scrambled to find someone special for the show. “We knew we had to find something extra special to replace Lady Antebellum when the band canceled their summer dates due to Hilary Scott’s pregnancy,” said Kim Blevins, director of marketing. “We are extremely excited that we can offer a taste of country music royalty to the Craven Country Jamboree. And it won’t be a regular show – not only will our fans see Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Robison, the three original members, this is a greatest hits package. The Craven date will be one of the only opportunities fans of the band will have to see them live. This is an incredibly special moment for Chicks fans and the Craven Country Jamboree.”

The Dixie Chicks join other huge names on the bill, which also includes Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Scotty McCreery, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, Gloriana, Randy Travis, Bill Anderson and more.

“This is the biggest, deepest lineup of any festival in Canada,” said Blevins. “We always strive to bring something for everyone from the biggest names in country music, to the best Canadian acts, to amazing classic country, all at the lowest price.”
