Watch Tyler Farr, Maren Morris, RaeLynn & More Talk Gator Meat, Ice Cream and Presidents at Watershed Festival

With superstar headliners like Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Keith Urban in attendance, Watershed Festival has become one of the the country’s must-see festivals.

Established only five years ago, Watershed takes place at The Gorge, Wash., with some of the world’s most stunning backdrops of the Columbia River and is the first-ever festival to host shows on back-to-back weekends. Kicking off weekend one (July 29-31) were headliners Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Keith Urban—all of whom will also play the second weekend—A Thousand Horses, Tyler Farr, Justin Moore, RaeLynn, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and many more.

Watershed Music Festival Nash Country Daily enlisted the help of newcomer Bailey Bryan to be our special correspondent at the Watershed Festival, where she performed on the Next From Nashville side stage. Bailey, recently signed to 300 Entertainment/Warner Music Nashville, has released her debut single, “Own It,” available on YouTube. The 18-year-old calls Sequim, Wash., home, so Watershed was just a short drive away.

If you were not able to attend the first weekend, there is still time to pack up your stuff and join the fun. The two-weekend festival has many activities to offer such as themed campsites, late-night sets and amusement rides with stunning views of the festival grounds. The lineup for weekend two (Aug. 5-7) will see—in addition to Keith, Eric and Jason—Brett Eldredge, Chris Janson, Kacey Musgraves, David Nail, Jon Pardi, Maren Morris, Travis Tritt and more.

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
