August 9, 2018 – Country newcomer Austin Burke joins the long roster of talent performing at the inaugural Country Live Music Festival presented by Hanke Trucking on Saturday, September 15, 2018. Burke will join festival headliner and country music superstar Rodney Atkins, Dylan Schneider, and local party bands Reckless Remedy and Saddlebrook.
“I have so many great fans in Wisconsin, so I love every chance I get to play in this area,” said Burke. “This new festival looks like it’ll be a ton of fun!”
“Whole Lot in Love,” Burke’s latest single, has catapulted him to Spotify stardom. The track currently boasts more than 40 million streams and has earned Burke the reputation of being one of the platform’s most successful independent country artists. Both of Burke’s songs have also been prominently featured on Sirius XM’s The Highway.
In addition to providing premium entertainment in southeastern Wisconsin, the festival aims to drive awareness for music and arts education in Washington County public schools. Students will have opportunities to participate in the event, giving students practical, hands-on production experience through performance, stage-handing, marketing and more. The festival will curate storylines on local programs, partnering with the school systems to elevate their programs.
The Country Live Music Festival runs 1:00pm – 10:30pm on September 15.
