COUNTRY THUNDER USA ANNOUNCES GAC PARTNERSHIP

Florence, AZ – Country Thunder USA is proud to announce the partnership with GAC (Great American Country). GAC has agreed to participate in and promote both the Florence, AZ four-day festival April 1 - 4th and the Twin Lakes, WI festival mid-July.

Top names making appearances in historic Florence include Tim McGraw, Alan Jackson, Montgomery Gentry and Blake S helton – as well as a kickoff performance by the Bellamy Brothers and Diamond Rio. Other acts on the bill include Rodney Atkins, Neal McCoy, Little Big Town, Keith Anderson, Zac Brown Band, Jack Ingram, The Lost Trailers, Jason Michael Carroll, Heidi Newfield, Hal Ketchum and more.

“The GAC brand is about bringing the music fan to country music,” said Scott Durand, vice president, marketing, Great American Country. “By partnering with the Country Thunder festivals it allows fans the opportunity to meet our hosts and interact with the network.”

Tune in to GAC to see exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews from Country Thunder USA. Air dates and programming to be announced.

Additionally the festival is posting record numbers in comparison to years prior – with a forty-percent increase over last year in overall ticket sales, and with 86% of the camping sites already sold, tickets are moving fast.
The festival quickly eclipsed the original four-day sale price of $99, and the current $119 value ticket is expected to run out by early next week. At that time the general admission four-day event pass will cost $139. Still cheaper than a movie – for every artist on the bill. There will not be a 2-for-1, buy-one-get-one-free promotion as in years past.
