In 2014, Springfield was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, located around the corner from the first apartment he lived in when he first arrived in the U.S. from Australia in 1971.

Pre-Sale $50 (includes admission to the Fair)

Kameron Marlowe

After being discovered on The Voice, Kameron Marlowe has developed a following with his edgy electric twang, shades of gritty rock and a touch of bluesy tenderness, living comfortably in the darker corners of the honky tonk.

Marlowe hit the charts in 2019 with the hit single “Giving You Up”, then followed up with self-titled EP in 2020, sending the torchy “Burn ‘Em All” into Billboard’s Hot Country Top 40 and opening massive shows for Brad Paisley, Riley Green, Morgan Wallen and more. Now the story continues, with his much-anticipated debut album We Were Cowboys putting him squarely in the spotlight.

Conner Smith

Conner Smith

 Just 23 years old and already a seasoned veteran of Nashville’s elite songwriting community, Conner Smith has emerged as one of Country’s most hotly-anticipated new artists – one knows the past can still inspire the present, and good things come to those who wait. 

An uncommon talent mixing prime-of-life passion with old-soul perspective, the young singer-songwriter has spent 15 years matching a honeyed vocal to propulsive hints of bluegrass and the warmth of ‘90s Country, an instant-classic sound infused with riveting modern appeal.
