Organizers made it official last week: The Citadel Country Spirit USA, Philadelphia’s country music festival, is taking place this year and will take place August 27-29 at Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Grounds in Chester County.
Billed as a “Great American Festival Experience,” this year’s headliners are Brantley Gilbert, Miranda Lambert and Chris Young. The three-day festival features 20 country music artists performing live music on two stages – 14 nationally recognized artists on the GMC Sierra Stage and popular emerging artists on the Citadel Rising Star Stage.
Brantley Gilbert is on the front page of Friday August 27th. Justin Moore, Rodney Atkins, RaeLynn and Muscadine Bloodline also perform. Miranda Lambert hits the headlines on Saturday August 28. Brett Young, Carly Pearce, Jon Langston and Niko Moon also perform.
Chris Young is on Sunday August 29th. Josh Turner, Scotty McCreery and Lindsay Ell also perform.
The 2020 festival has been postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic. Festival producers have announced that there will be limited capacity this year. Additionally, there will be a few changes to the site so that those who choose to socially distance themselves can do so while continuing to see the show. “At Citadel Credit Union, we are committed to strengthening our community,” said Jeff March, President and CEO of Citadel Credit Union. “After a year of unknowns and struggles, we are thrilled to be a part of an event like Citadel Country Spirit USA that will once again allow us to grow strong and do it together.”
