FLEMINGSBURG | Hoedown in the Holler, a homegrown country music festival started in 2010, returns on Friday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Oct. 6 at Mandolin Farms in Fleming County.

The event will be headlined by Daryle Singletary. Hit songs like the No. 1 "I Let Her Lie,” "Too Much Fun," and “The Note” have developed an ongoing enthusiastic Daryle Singletary following and fan base, and have made him a real presence on record and in video. Singletary frequently performs on the Grand Ole Opry stage. He has also shared the stage with many great country music artists and several have joined him on his own recordings including: George Jones, Merle Haggard, Rhonda Vincent, Ricky Skaggs, Charlie Daniels, John Anderson, Dwight Yoakam, and Johnny Paycheck.

“Daryle Singletary is a terrific musician and fits in perfectly with the image and feeling of Hoedown,” said Kimber Goodwin, president of Blonde Marketing, the producer of the event. “Daryle will bring traditional country music to the Holler and we are excited to have a headliner that has recorded a number 1 hit!”

Headlined by Lee Brice in 2010, the event was expanded to two days in 2011 with Craig Campbell as the feature talent and a total of seven country bands. Friday, Oct. 5 will feature a night of great country music with two bands performing over four hours of live music. Gates will open at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are only available at the gate.

“We’ve had such great talent in the first two editions of Hoedown in the Holler including Lee Brice who has had tremendous success including his recent first number 1 hit,” said Goodwin. “We decided after two years of relatively new artists we would change up the headlining talent to a veteran country singer and are so excited to have an established performer with multiple hits and an amazing legacy in the country music industry with Daryle Singletary.”

Camping for the weekend is available are reservations are currently being accepted. All 300 campsites include water and electric hookups. Over 1,250 music fans enjoyed the 2011 event and Mandolin Farms is the ideal spot for an outdoor music festival with a covered stage and a covered pavilion for seating.

Tickets for the Saturday portion of the festival are just $20 in advance for a full day of entertainment. Children 6 and under may attend the event for free. Adult tickets on show day will be $25. Save $5 per ticket by purchasing in advance.

There will be food and beverage vendors on-site during the event.
