Josh Turner headlines Friday night at Lynchburg Music Fest

Randy Travis, John Anderson, Johnny Cash, Vern Gosdin, and Hank Williams … if modern country singer Josh Turner were to create his only Mount Rushmore of Country Music, those would be the five faces on it.

When he performs on Friday, October 2 at the Lynchburg Music Fest at its new venue near the Moore County, Lincoln County line in Mulberry, you just might hear songs that contain bits and pieces of all five. Festival organizers recently announced Turner as their Friday night headliner for this year’s event.

Igniter Productions expanded the 2020 event to a three-day festival held on a sprawling Moore County farm just off Louse Creek Road. The new venue will not only allow for social distancing but also more camping opportunities. Other new features for this year’s festival include a songwriting tent, as well as Whiskey Row and Wine Circle, where attendees can taste some locally-produced whiskeys and wines from both Lynchburg and southern, middle Tennessee.

“More than just the sum of its parts – music, whiskey, and camping – Lynchburg Music Fest has a unique element to differentiate it from ‘just another’ festival. It has a strong songwriter element to add to the experience, consisting of both up-and-coming and award-winning writers,” said Jonny Hill, owner of Igniter Productions and Lynchburg Music Fest. “We are grateful this one-of-a-kind event continues to grow and can’t wait to see where the road leads from here.”

Hill says the festival plans to announce the rest of its 2020 line up including the Saturday headliner in August. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit their website. •
