Eric Church, Dierks Bentley to perform in Ohio’s Country Concert 2016

Sure, 2015 still has a few months to go until it’s in the history books. But for country music fans, fall is a time of looking ahead and making plans to attend festivals next summer. On that note, Country Concert in Fort Loramie, Ohio, has announced Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Sam Hunt will perform at the festival next summer.

Festival organizers have also announced that Old Dominion will perform at the “Camper Party” on July 6. The announcement regarding the concert was made via Country Concert’s official Facebook page on September 23. The band’s smash hit single “Break Up With Him” was certified gold in September, as the band noted on their Facebook page.

Now in its 36th year, Country Concert will be held July 7-9, 2016, at Hickory Hills Lake in Fort Loramie, Ohio. The remainder of Country Concert’s performance lineup has not been announced as of press time; however that information will be announced at a later date. The festival is no stranger to hosting big-name country music stars; the performance lineup for 2015 included Carrie Underwood, Jake Owen, Justin Moore, The Band Perry, Florida Georgia Line and Chris Young.

Festival organizers have also gotten the fans involved in the decision-making process for the performance lineup, with both returning and potential festival attendees invited to fill out a survey on Country Concert's website regarding which country music acts should be included in the performance lineup for 2016. Options included A Thousand Horses, Merle Haggard, Kacey Musgraves and Martina McBride.
