As Jake Owen's smash hit "Beachin'" hit No.1 on the charts this week, everyone here at 'GNA is busy preparing for our biggest event of the year—Countryfest!

And with more than 15,000 people expected to attend the all-day party in Schaghticoke, the local media is getting excited too!

We appreciate all the great publicity for such a fun event in the Capital District!  We'll see you at the show!

I'm so excited to see Jake Owen again!  I had the pleasure back in 2011!  Do you think he'll remember me?  Yeah, probably not!
