Taking the stage at 6:30 p.m. will be Gary Ware and Bill Kunst followed by Josh ‘Junior’ Humphrey and Drew Stewart. Jordyn Stoddard will take the stage around 8:30 p.m. and open for headliner Grayson Rogers. At just 17 years of age, Stoddard has years of songwriting under her belt. Her debut album ‘Southern Tide’ was released in March of 2015 and the single ‘Like Me ‘˜Til You Love Me’ is now playing on country radio. She recently returned from the CMT Music Awards in Nashville and is excited to return to Barnesville this weekend. This year’s returning headliner is Grayson Rogers all the way from Cape Coral, Florida. In September 2014, his debut album All Fired Up was released nationwide. His first single, ‘Party Rocker’ was simultaneously released, immediately charting in the Top 20 on the PlayMPE charts and later being awarded as ‘Favorite New Song’ in the 2014 SFCM Country Music Awards. Rogers recently returned from playing at the CMA Festival in Nashville and like Jordyn, is thrilled to play in Barnesville once again.
