It's gonna be one heckuva summer of country music in Lansing!

We already have Taste of Country Starring Dierks Bentley, with special guest Joe Nichols, Saturday, June 13 at Cooley Law School Stadium.

And now, The Band Perry is headlining the annual Common Ground Music Festival in downtown Lansing! They'll take the Auto Value Main Stage on Thursday, July 9th.

Fellow country acts Parmalee and Old Dominion will also be on July 9.

The Band Perry made waves when the 2010 release of their self-titled debut album brought five hit singles, including the chart-topping song “If I Die Young.” Their second album, Pioneer, offered a combination of classic country and rock-and-roll sounds, and gearing them up for their upcoming third album.

In their young careers, the sibling-trio has received multiple awards from The Country Music Association, CMT Music Awards, and The American Country Awards, including being named Vocal Group of the Year by the Academy of Country Music in 2014. Their nominations for The Billboard Music Awards, The American Music Awards, and Grammy Awards are a testament to their talent, which is certain to rock the main stage at Common Ground.

Also performing on country night will be the country-rock foursome, Parmalee. Once labeled as Clear Channel’s NEW! Artists to Watch in 2013, the band has elevated themselves to being nominated for The Academy of Country Music’s “New Artist of the Year” and “Choice Country Artist” at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards. Their debut single “Musta Had A Good Time” was #1 on SiriusXM’s The Highway “Hot 30 LIVE” countdown for 4 consecutive weeks and their debut album Feels Like Carolina has received praise from the likes of People, The New York Times, Billboard and many more!

Country’s newest act heating up the charts is Old Dominion. Before recording their own music, the Nashville-based quintet’s songs were recorded and released by artists such as Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and fellow Common Ground performers The Band Perry. Chosen as Rolling Stone’s “New Artist You Need to Know” in 2014, they are now heating up the charts on Spotify and Sirius XM radio. Taste of Country, Billboard, Huffington Post and many more have listed them as a top artist to watch in 2015. Currently on tour with Kenny Chesney, we are thrilled to be welcoming them to the stage at Common Ground this summer.
