Country Music Shines At Orlando Calling Festival

Summer may be gone, but down in Orlando, Florida, the sun’s set to shine hard on the first annual Orlando Calling festival, which takes place this this weekend (Nov. 12-13). The headliners are a mix of classic rockers, alternative icons, pop up-and-comers, and country artists. Among the latter is a wide range of country music’s many styles, from mainstream hitmakers like Kid Rock and Blake Shelton, to alternative stars (Drive-By Truckers), rising singer-songwriters (Justin Townes Earle), and even bluegrass (the legendary Del McCoury).

Find out more and get some free country music MP3s while you’re at it.
