Winstock 2018 – FULL LINEUP ANNOUNCED!

Winstock18Lineup__blogs

SPONSORED POST – This morning, the full Winstock Country Music Festival 25th anniversary celebration lineup was unveiled and features a combination of tried-and-true favorites and some of today’s hottest stars.

Joining Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, and Brothers Osborne June 8-9 in Winsted will be Billy Currington, Luke Combs, Neal McCoy, Sawyer Brown, LANCO, Walker Hayes, Trick Pony, Jordan Davis, Jake McVey, Maiden Dixie, Mitch Gordon and the Unleaded Band, and Jake Nelson.

“We wanted this to be a special lineup that represents Winstock and how we’ve grown over the years,” said Winstock Country Music Festival Chairman Dave Danielson. “For our 25th anniversary, we really wanted to blend some of our favorites along with the top artists of today.

Neal McCoy holds the record for most Winstock performances with five (1998, 01, 05, 09, and 13), and Sawyer Brown has taken the Winstock stage four times (2000, 04, 08, 13).

“To have Neal and Sawyer Brown be part of our 25th anniversary lineup is very special to us,” Danielson said. “They have been with us since the early years, and they’re two acts our fans absolutely love.”

Pairing them with hot newcomers Luke Combs and LANCO, who recently had the number-one hit “Greatest Love Story,” is sure to make it a weekend that all will enjoy.

“We built our foundation as a band on ‘Greatest Love Story’ because we believed in the power of Country music storytelling,” said LANCO lead singer Brandon Lancaster. “To see how much it has resonated with so many people makes us feel a little less crazy for believing in it so much.”

Combs also has hit big with “When It Rains It Pours,” and “Hurricane,” and that’s just the start. The North Carolina native has been featured on many “artists to watch” lists and is currently headlining his own “Don’t Tempt Me With a Good Time” tour into the spring.

Also in 2018, Winstock goers will see a new flair for what has been coined the Emerging Artist Stage over the years. Moving forward, the name of Winstock’s second stage will be more expansive to allow not just newcomers to take the stage. This year, Trick Pony will entertain fans from the new West Stage, along with Walker Hayes, Jordan Davis, and Jake McVey.

According to a press release from Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson, sheriff’s deputies were called to the 800 block of Deerfield Road in Watertown at about 6:41 p.m. Nov. 14 because of an unresponsive woman in the roadway. As deputies arrived, Ridgeview paramedics were loading the victim into an ambulance for transport at Ridgeview Hospital in Waconia.

Deputies spoke with Watertown fire personnel, who were first on-scene, and learned the victim had suffered traumatic injuries and needed immediate transport for medical treatment. Ridgeview emergency room personnel later informed deputies the victim had died from injuries sustained in the incident.

Sheriff’s deputies summoned assistance from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to process the scene for preservation and collection of physical evidence. The driver was subsequently arrested and booked into the Carver County Jail pending charges of criminal vehicular operation.

The matter remains under investigation by the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office.

UPDATE 11-17-17 According to a formal complaint, Casey Belden Hoskins, 42, of Watertown, has been charged with criminal vehicular homicide – operating a motor vehicle in a grossly negligent manner, a felony. If convicted, this charge is punishable by up to 10 years in jail and/or a $20,000 fine.
