Country music fans rejoice … your week is finally here! On July 17, Lagoon will be featuring The Country Music Project as the first country music headliner of the 2019 season.
Like many bands, The Country Music Project is the direct result of someone with a little passion and the guts to do what they love. Michael Rice was only in 3rd grade when he became intrigued with music. Over 30 years later, he finally took the leap and began looking for a female vocal partner. Now, the band can be found out and about almost every weekend doing what they love: playing country music.
The Country Music Project has a little something for everyone. They love to perform traditional pieces from artists such as George Jones and Merle Haggard. But for those who enjoy the most recent direction the country genre has taken, they also play picks from Carrie Underwood or Dierks Bentley.
Opening for this week’s headliner will be Unfocused Dream, a Little Kids Rock group. As always, we’re excited to welcome the youth of our community onto the stage!
Going hungry is not an option at the Lagoon! This week’s food truck lineup consists of only the best: Bedrock BBQ, Wing Shack, Rollin’ Stone, The Human Bean Coffee Truck, and Liquid N2 Ice Cream. Feel free to pack in your own picnic or purchase some goodies from a truck onsite!
For those who can’t make the show, The Country Music Project’s performance will be broadcast on KRFC 88.9 FM Radio Fort Collins on Wednesday, July 24 at 7 p.m. as part of their “Around Town” series.
