2013 Burlington Steamboat Days Includes Craig Morgan, Florida Georgia Line and Eli Young Band
The annual Burlington Steamboat Days American Music Festival will be June 11 - 16, and will include concerts from three country acts on the Main Stage!
Craig Morgan will kick off Steamboat Days on Tuesday, June 11. On Wednesday, June 12, Florida Georgia Line will appear, and on Friday, June 14 the Eli Young Band will take the stage!
Before becoming a country music star, Craig Morgan served in the U.S. Military, including over a decade of active-duty service. He released his first album in 2000. He charted his first top-ten hit, 'Almost Home,' two years later. Additional songs that Craig has made famous include 'That's What I Love About Sunday,' ''Redneck Yacht Club' and 'This Ole Boy.' He is also the host of 'Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors' on the Outdoor Channel.
Florida Georgia Line burst on to the country music scene last year with their mega-hit 'Cruise,' which went all the way to number 1. Their second single, 'Get Your Shine On,' also reached the top of the charts. At the ACM Awards, the group took home trophies in the "Top New Vocal Duo or Group" and "Top New Artist" categories.
The Eli Young Band is known for hit singles such as 'Crazy Girl,' 'Even if it Breaks Your Heart' and 'Say Goodnight.' The group is named after members Mike Eli and James Young, who were college roommates at the University of North Texas. At the 48th ACM Awards they were nominated for "Song of the Year," "Vocal Group of the Year," and "Single of the Year."
Gates will open for all of the Burlington Steamboat Days shows at 5 p.m. The concerts starts at 8.
In addition to the Main Stage performers, there will also be a South Stage set up with additional bands playing throughout the festival. Local country act Jerad Harness and Blackgrass will follow the Craig Morgan concert on June 11.
Steamboat days will also include a carnival, talent show, art show and golf tournament, among other activities. Tickets to Burlington Steamboat Days are available online.
