Photo Highlights From the Newport Folk Festival with Dolly Parton, The Highwomen, Kacey Musgraves & More

Rhode Island’s Newport Folk Festival (July 26–28) featured a heavy-hitting lineup of musical A-listers, including the first live performance from The Highwomen (Amanda Shires, Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Natalie Hemby), a surprise appearance by Dolly Parton, and billed performances from Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow, Lucas Nelson and more.

Nash Country Daily affiliate WPRO of Providence covered the event and was kind enough to send some photos our way, reporting that the festival “maintains its place as the gold standard of music festivals—impeccably run, a beautiful location, and well-curated sets that had a broad appeal, from relative unknowns to globally known superstars.”

Check out some photos from the event.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
