MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Carolina Country Music Fest announced six more acts that will be coming to the three-day country music concert in Myrtle Beach in June: Rascal Flatts, Cole Swindell, Colt Ford, Brooke Eden, the Davisson Brothers Band, and the Georgia Satellites.

The artists were announced Tuesday morning on the Carolina Country Music Fest Twitter account. Rascal Flatts was announced as “the most awarded Country group of the past decade.”

Cole Swindell was nominated for Best Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association, and Colt Ford was nominated for Artists of the Year – Breakthrough Artist. Brooke Eden and the Davisson Brothers Band were announced by CCMF representatives as up-and-coming country music groups, and the Grammy-winning Georgia Satellites are best known for their 1986 top five hit single "Keep Your Hands to Yourself."

“The addition of these fantastic artists proves that this festival is going to a big hit for both country music fans and the entire Myrtle Beach area," stated Myrtle Beach Communications Manager Brad Dickerson. "Early ticket sales have been phenomenal, and we are pleased that so many will be making their way to the Grand Strand to kick off what is shaping up to be a wonderful summer tourist season.”

Lady Antebellum Eric Church, Big & Rich, Sam Hunt and Hunter Hayes are among the artists already announced for the three-day festival, set to take place in Downtown Myrtle Beach June 5 through 7.

"We are thrilled with the overwhelming response," said Bob Durkin, President of Full House Productions. “To sell out of pre-sale and early bird three-day general admission tickets proves that country music fans are excited, and agree that Myrtle Beach is the perfect location for the Carolina Country Music Fest.. With the addition of headliners Eric Church, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts, this event is guaranteed to be the premiere country music event of the Southeast.”
