Jake Owen, Joe Nichols, Uncle Kracker Lead Hoedown In Detroit

(Radio.com) Country music took over downtown Detroit this past weekend. The three-day, 31st annual WYCD Downtown Hoedown kicked into gear Friday afternoon, with dozens of bands slated to play on three stages, all in the shadow of Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers. The festival continues Saturday and Sunday, June 1 and 2.

Uncle Kracker headlined the Friday lineup, which also included Drake White, Ty Stone, American Idol's Tate Stevens, Parmalee, Maggie Rose, and Charlie Worsham.

Saturday featured Jake Owen, Craig Morgan, Blackberry Smoke, and Emerson Drive, among many others; Sunday is headlined by Joe Nichols, with Phil Vassar, Casey James, Jon Pardi, Aaron Lewis, and Gunner & the Grizzly Boys.

Hoedown debuted in 1983 with Hank Williams, Jr. and Tanya Tucker, and in the years since the festival has gone on to feature some of country music's biggest and best-selling artists, including Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Kid Rock, Zac Brown Band and Charlie Daniels. more on this story
