WRNS Fest Is Wednesday At Grainger Stadium In Kinston

It's not baseball, but country music making fans excited for a big event at Grainger Stadium in Kinston Wednesday.

The first "WRNS Fest" concert event is July 16.

“We are excited to be able to stage the WRNS Fest event in Kinston and appreciate the support of the Kinston Parks and Recreation department," said Larry Weiss of Digity Media. "Some of the hottest acts in country music today will be here to perform in this first WRNS Fest event.”

Three artists are scheduled to perform at WRNS Fest.

The headliner for the WRNS Fest will be Joe Nichols. He's released seven studio albums which have produced fourteen Top 40 singles on the charts, including the #1 singles “Brokenheartsville,” “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” “Gimmie That Girl,” and “Sunny and 75,” as well as four other Top Ten entries.

Craig Campbell is also scheduled to perform. His debut single "Family Man" reached the Billboard Top 20. Campbell's had several popular songs including "Fish."

Jon Pardi will open the show. He's an up and coming singer who has toured as an opening act for Dierks Bentley. Pardi has had several popular songs including the Top 10 hit "Up All Night."

The music starts in the parking lot as Milan Jarmin will give a free pre-concert performance starting at 5:00 p.m. That's the same time the stadium gates open, and the show starts at 7:00 p.m.

WITN is proud to be a partner with Digity Media and WRNS and will be on hand to bring you all the action.
