More artists for the LakeShake Next From Nashivlle stage to be announced at later.

I have had the pleasure of broadcasting from Country LakeShake for the past three years. It has given me the opportunity to interview some of the up and coming artists that have appeared on LakeShake's Next From Nashville stage (some of those artists are now being played on KICK-FM on a regular basis).

I get to go to Chicago again this June to broadcast from the Country LakeShake Festival. You have an opportunity to join me in Chicago. KICK-FM will have 3-day lawn passes to giveaway, so you can see over 20 acts on the Chicago lake shore. Keep your radio locked in on 97.9 KICK-FM for your chance to win, or follow this link for ticket information.
