The Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival may take place in a small town, however, it is the home of big name entertainment! Some of the biggest names in Country music, and more than a few rock and pop legends, have graced the festival’s main stage over its 39-year history.
Headlining Friday night on the Mullet Festival stage is one the most talented young artists in country music, Chase Bryant. He burst onto the scene with back-to-back top-10 hits Little Bit of You and Take It On Back, and his alluring new single Room to Breathe is sure to follow in their footsteps. The guitar-shredding Texan has music in his blood. Bryant’s grandfather played piano for Roy Orbison and Waylon Jennings, and his uncles co-founded the hit-making country band Ricochet.
Saturday night Justin Moore is welcomed back to Boggy Country! Following his 2013 appearance in Niceville, Moore took home his first ACM award when he was named New Artist of the Year. The Arkansas native has cemented his place in country music with chart-topping singles Small Town USA, If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away, Lettin’ the Night Roll and Til My Last Day. Moore just released his fourth album, Kinda Don’t Care, and has garnered his seventh top-10 hit with its lead single, You Look Like I Need a Drink.
Sunday afternoon features one of the most popular country groups of the 90s, Confederate Railroad. Songs like Queen of Memphis, Jesus and Mama, Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind and Trashy Women have brought them chart success, multi-platinum sales and continued popularity as a road band. On their new album “Lucky to be Alive,” the band teamed with friends Willie Nelson, John Anderson and Colt Ford to record a 20th Anniversary collaboration of “Trashy Women.”
Joe Diffie will close out the festival on Sunday evening. Diffie dominated the charts in the 90s, and Jason Aldean’s hit “1994” introduced him to a whole new generation of fans two decades later. He has over 20 top-10 hits to his credit, including John Deere Green, Home, Bigger than the Beatles, Pickup Man and Third Rock from the Sun. He’s a Grammy and ACM award winner and has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for over 20 years.
Brothers Bradley and Chadley Brassfield of Tupelo, Mississippi grew up singing and performing in churches across the south. Lakeland, Florida native Aly Cutter moved to Nashville to pursue a career as a recording artist. She opened shows for Jeff Bates and Jimmy Fortune, and had songs she co-wrote recorded by Trace Adkins. They knew they had found something special the moment they hit a three-part harmony. Don’t miss their performance Saturday, October 22.
Farewell Angelina is an all-female country group featuring four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters and badass multi-instrumentalists.
