20th Anniversary Of Countryfest – And I’ve Been To All Of Them

I take a lot of ribbing here at the station for being “the old guy”.  I’m a big boy. I can take it. There are disadvantages of being old(er), but one of the great positives is that I can write headlines like the one you just read.  I have been to 19 Countryfests, and am about to experience the 20th!   How many have YOU seen? 

I’m not great at being able to rattle off names in any given year.  I know a couple of current and former employees who can run rings around me in that regard.  But I do have a way of  checking – the ‘GNA studio hallways.

There are posters galore.   Unfortunately, we don’t have them from the very first couple , back in 1993 and 1994.  They may be hanging up in someone’s room somewhere!  Give them back, whoever you are!!

Countryfest is a long standing and proud tradition here at ‘GNA and we are equally proud to be able to present this year’s lineup.  I can’t wait to see the new poster!

Do any of you out there have any photos of the very early days?  Would love to see them.  Feel free to email me at , and I will post them in a future article!

Oh -and if you want to hear who’s coming, here’s a link for when and where we’re going to announce it!
