It's a concert like no other and nothing says summer like Countryfest. We haven't announced many details about the 2018 concert, except that it's happening- until now.

We've been talking about it for a few weeks, you had a chance to vote, and we've finally announced our winner for local Taste of Country Riser and the performer that will be opening Countryfest this year. Congratulations to Chelsea SulkeyYou may remember Chelsea from opening up the Frankie Ballard show at Capital Hills Golf Course in Albany. Next, is Countryfest 2018!

Chelsea will now move on to the National Taste of Country Riser competition and compete against winners from 34 other stations to win the opportunity to be featured on Taste of Country. When that competition starts, she's going to need your votes again to win!

Congratulations also to the rest of our top 5 (in order of votes): Vinny Michaels, The Kyle Bourgault Band, Conor Walsh, and Justin Gladu.
