The husband and wife duo have been GNA fan favorites for some time now and it wasn't too long ago they played a rising stars concert.


Joe has released seven albums and is from Arkansas.


A significant portion of the festival will still take place outdoors, with entertainment and concessions in a fair-style format on Pearl Street (which will be closed for the day).  We will have an outdoor stage that will have entertainment from the time gates open until dark.  Attendance to the outdoor portion of the festival will be FREE.  Festival attendees will be able to mingle and celebrate the summer outside during the day and move indoors for a high-quality arena concert experience in the evening.  The outdoor “party” element that our festival attendees love will be preserved, and even enhanced, in our new home.
