Townsquare Media kicked off its first year of ownership of the four day Country Jam festival in Grand Junction, Colorado with headliners Jake Owen, Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, and Brantley Gilbert. The festival was blessed with beautiful weather and loyal patrons; many of whom have made Grand Junction an annual party destination since 1992 when the festival began. Of this year’s lineup, Matt LaRose, Vice President of Live Entertainment at Townsquare Media said that he was “very excited about a record setting 2014 for Country Jam. Starting with Jake Owen, topping it off with [Eric] Church and ending with [Brantley] Gilbert has been incredible. I hope that 2015 will be just as strong as 2014 and we are on our way there with the announcement of Tim McGraw.”
There were a couple additions to Country Jam this year, such as live interviews from TasteofCountry.com in the Roper Country Club, which are available on their YouTube site. There were also acoustic appearances in the VIP lounge on Saturday and Sunday by Jerrod Niemann and Brett Eldredge, which were a special treat for VIP ticket holders.
