McGraw, Lady A play Watershed

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 – The Watershed Music Festival in Washington is returning in August with Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum and Jake Owen in the line-up.

Billy Currington, Eli Young Band, Joe Diffie, Randy Houser, Justin Moore, Kip Moore, Cassadee Pope, Eli Young Band, Chase Rice and Dallas Smith also will play in the festival, slated for Aug. 1-3 at the Gorge Amphitheatre in Quincy, Wash.

Three-day festival and camping passes go on sale Thursday, March 13 at 1 p.m. eastern via www.watershedfest.com.

Moore, who will be performing at Watershed for the second time, said, "After I performed there last year, I knew this was the kind of festival I would want to come back and play as many times as I can. It's such an iconic and beautiful place to play and adds to what is already a great vibe. And there are tons of hardcore fans, which just amps it up to an insane level."

"We've been lucky that this crazy idea has turned into a monster country festival now celebrating its third year," said Brian O'Connell, Creator of Watershed Music Festival and Live Nation President of Country Touring. "Each time we try and top ourselves and do better than the previous year, and 2014 is no exception. We're looking forward to another fun and crazy weekend with top notch talent."

CD reviews for Tim McGraw

CD review - Here on Earth Tim McGraw's collection, "Here on Earth," finds the country star sounding peaceful and down to Earth. He's more meditative than overly active, throughout. It's very much an adult album in that McGraw is speaking from the perspective of maturity, rather than pretending he's still a young man. If he's got any barbecue statins on his white t-shirt, he's not letting on here. McGraw burns through five mellow tracks before he gets to anything with a discernable beat. ...
CD review - Damn Country Music Tim McGraw said of his 14th studio album, "Damn Country Music," "It's is all about passion, (taking him back to 1989) "when I came to Nashville to chase my dreams." Country music has richly rewarded him over the past two decades, and he honors the genre's tradition here. The album gets off to a very traditional start with Celtic folk. The flute and skillful acoustic picking on the opener "Here Tonight" bring a Mark Knopfler tune immediately to mind. ...
CD review - Sundown Heaven Town The banjo comes first out of the speakers, the opening strains of "Overrated," the lead-off song on Tim McGraw's latest. But with a "1-2-3-4" count, the mood changes and goes for a more modern country approach. McGraw does about the same on the follow-up "City Lights" with Michael Landau's steely, but rocking lead guitar taking over near the conclusion as it does later hard on "Sick of Me" where the protagonist contemplates a need to turn his life around. ...
