Wednesday night's show features veteran country performers Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw and Colin Raye.Thursday night it's one of the more popular bands around, Hairball. Friday night it's a Christian sound with Casting Crowns. Country group Lanco is the main attraction Saturday night and the grandstand wraps up with the Demolition Derby on Sunday afternoon at 4pm.
