It's hard to believe but in just 39 days WGNA will be partying with close to 30,000 of our greatest listeners at the Altamont Fairgrounds for Countryfest 2011.

This year's show starts at 1pm and the gates open at 11am. I love to stand on the stage and watch the crowd pour in each year when the gates open up. People find the best spot they can and set up camp for an afternoon of good friends and great country music. This year's show is one of the best ever with Joanna Smith, Brett Eldredge, Sunny Sweeney, Randy Houser and Superstar headliner Miranda Lambert.

As many of you hardcore WGNA Countryfest fans know there is a big difference between an all day festival which is what Countryfest is, and a concert. Rules apply, check them in full detail here.

Most importantly you have to have a ticket. This year they are selling briskly. $35 now, $45 at the gate on July 9th. Do the math, save $10 and get your tickets now at any Hannaford Supermarket in the Capital Region, Glens Falls and Queensbury or online here. WGNA will mail them to you and save you some gas money.

Now let's get ready for a party with the red hot Superstar Miranda Lambert. Here's her big hit "White Liar" to get you jacked up for Countryfest 2011.
