The event will be held on Mandolin Farms and will be headlined by Craig Campbell, whose first single "Family Man" peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Country Charts in the spring of this year. His current single, "Fish" debuted just a few weeks ago and is gaining momentum on radio stations across the country currently residing at No. 38 on the charts.
"We are thrilled to have Craig Campbell headline Hoedown in the Holler in year two," said Kimber Goodwin, president of Blonde Marketing, the producer of the event.

He is a great live performer and has two fantastic debut singles with tremendous radio appeal."
