We are officially a month away from Grind City Music Fest in Memphis, Tennessee.

There is no better way to knock off the winter blues and kick off festival season than with this stellar lineup. Held at the Grind City Amphitheater, the festival’s second year is drawing some of our favorite names here at Whiskey Riff.

The city known as the heart of rhythm and blues is bringing country to town, and this is not a festival you’ll want to miss. And, with single-day tickets starting at $69, this is a budget-friendly fest.

Maybe this is girl math to the utmost degree, but think about how many artists you’d get to see with that ticket and then divide what you are paying by that number…now think about how much you’d pay to go to a singular artist’s show. Pretty cost effective when you pose it like that.

Now, we all know the best part of a festival is planning out who you will see, so here is my rundown on how I’d get down at Grind City.

Kicking off on Friday, I’d get nice and comfy near the front for Drayton Farley to claim my spot in the amphitheater before Sam Barber, Muscadine Bloodline, and Charley Crockett go back to back.

With Muscadine rolling out singles from their newest project, which will be fully unveiled later this year, I’d be ready to rock and roll as I am sure they will play some new material. Not to mention, their collaboration with Drayton Farley, “Have Faith In Me,” poses the perfect opportunity for Farley to be brought up on stage with the group. Alabama music will be well represented on Friday afternoon.

Being up close towards the front then secures prime viewing of Charley Crockett as he boogies around the stage for his captivating set.

On Saturday, you’re in for another big day of stellar music with the Red Clay Strays and Whiskey Myers taking the stage. The Red Clay Strays are a hot name in country music right now, selling out three nights at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium for their headlining debut…and I mean sold out in minutes sold it out.

Following them, Whiskey Myers will light up the stage with their electric guitar-ripping tracks as Cody Cannon belts the Southern rock-inspired songs into the microphone. If this will be your first Whiskey Myers show, you’re in for a treat.

Adding onto Saturday’s stacked lineup, Grind City Fest announced that newcomers Ole 60 will play a set.

“Exciting news! We’re thrilled to announce that Ole 60 has joined the Grind City Music Festival lineup! A dynamic 5-piece band hailing from Kentucky, Ole 60, recently inked a record deal with a Nashville-based label. Their journey began in a shed and evolved into jam sessions at a restaurant after hours.”

If you like Treaty Oak Revival, you will love these boys. As they are deemed one of the next big names in country music, this will be a set you’ll want to catch and get on their train before it takes off.

April 5th and 6th can’t get here soon enough. Grind City is ready for their attendees to be rocking out all weekend, and so are we.
