LOUISVILLE, TN – The Town of Louisville in partnership with 100.3 The Wolf announced today that they will be bringing live country music back to East Tennessee. Wolfstock is a two-day music festival that will take place August 6th and 7th by Louisville Town Hall, and will feature headliners Billy Currington and Jake Owen. Jordan Davis, Carly Pearce, Matt Stell, and Lindsay Ell will also take the stage at the debut festival, which was originally scheduled for May 2020 but canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“After one of the most challenging periods in recent memory, the Town of Louisville is thrilled to finally host Wolfstock 2021,” said Tom Bickers, Mayor of Louisville. “This is an event that’s now more than a year in the making, and we’re ready to finally -- and safely -- gather together to showcase all the fun, beauty and hospitality our town has to offer. We look forward to this being an annual event that people come back to year after year.”

Jake Owen released his sixth studio album, Greetings From… Jake, in 2019, and it produced three Top 10 singles, including “Made For You.” Signed to Big Loud Records, Owen is reunited with award-winning Joey Moi, who helped produce his breakout Barefoot Blue Jean Night album, which landed at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and garnered four consecutive #1 hits. Owen is gearing up to join Moi once again to record his seventh studio album.

Billy Currington’s sixth studio album bears the breezy title Summer Forever, but the talented Georgia native has spent more than a decade in the spotlight proving he’s truly a man for all seasons. Possessing one of the smoothest and most distinct voices in any genre of music, Currington is equally skilled at delivering upbeat summertime anthems as well as exploring the complexities of life and love with a poignant ballad. Since his self-titled debut album bowed on Mercury Records in 2003, Currington has scored eleven career No. 1 singles, most recently, “Don’t Hurt Like It Used To.”

Jordan Davis has been named an “Artist to Watch” by Billboard, Rolling Stone, CMT, Pandora, Shazam, Amazon Music, The Tennessean, SiriusXM, and more. The 2020 ACM New Male Artist of the Year nominee’s debut album Home State has accumulated over 1.5 billion streams worldwide and features his three consecutive No. 1 hits: Platinum-Certified “Slow Dance In A Parking Lot,” the Double Platinum-Certified “Singles You Up” and Platinum-Certified “Take It From Me.”

Carly Pearce lit a fire with her debut album, Every Little Thing, and its Platinum-certified history-making title track, making her “Country’s ‘it’ girl,” according to ABC Radio. She has toured alongside Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan and received the most CMA Awards nods for any new artist nominee in 2020, including New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, and Video of the Year. She won Musical Event of the Year for her Platinum-certified No. 1 duet with Lee Brice “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”

Matt Stell has over 360 million cumulative streams across his catalog to date, notched the #1 slot with his most recent Gold-certified single “Everywhere But On,” and was named to Country Radio Seminar’s 2021 New Faces of Country Music class. He’s the first-ever artist to receive a virtual plaque from the RIAA for his Platinum break-through debut single, “Prayed For You,” which was one of NSAI’s 10 Songs We Wish We Had Written for 2020.

Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist, and awe-inspiring songwriter. Lauded as “one of the most exciting and talented young artists in country music” by Forbes, Ell has exhilarated audiences as part of Keith Urban’s Graffiti U World Tour, Brantley Gilbert’s Not Like Us Tour, and Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior World Tour. Ell’s first full-length album, The Project, debuted at No. 1 on the Country Album Sales Chart and was named Billboard’s “Best Country Album of 2017,” and in 2020 she released the critically-acclaimed and deeply personal follow-up album, heart theory.

“After more than a year with almost no live-music options to speak of, we can’t wait to give people from across East Tennessee the chance to see this amazing line-up of performers in a beautiful outdoor setting,” said Aaron Tracy, owner of Tailormade Productions. “We are excited for the Town of Louisville and can’t wait to finally bring this unforgettable event to life.”

In addition to music, the festival will feature a wide array of food and beverages. Food vendors from across East Tenn. will showcase their most popular dishes. A portion of the proceeds will go towards helping local nonprofits.

All state and local COVID-19 guidelines at the time of the event regarding mask-wearing, social distancing, etc., will be adhered to in order to safeguard the health, safety, and well-being of all attendees, performers, and staff.

Wolfstock is being presented by the Town of Louisville, along with partners 100.3 The Wolf, WATE 6 on your side, Blount Partnership Tourism Development and Tailormade Productions. Tickets go on sale March 26, 2021 at 10 A.M.
