The Dixie Chicks will replace Lady Antebellum as the Saturday headlining act for the 2013 Craven Country Jamboree. Lady A canceled a number of their summer dates after Hillary Scott announced her pregnancy.
“We are extremely excited that we can offer a taste of country music royalty to the Craven Country Jamboree,” Kim Blevins, director of marketing , said. “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 fellow headliners Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw as well as Scotty McCreery, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, Doc Walker, Sawyer Brown, Chad Brownlee, Gloriana, High Valley, Small Town Pistols, Jason Blaine, Randy Travis and Bill Anderson. Comedy duo Williams and Ree will also return.
“This is the biggest, deepest lineup of any festival in Canada,” Kim Blevins said. “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.”
