Some of the biggest names of country music past, present and future will grace the stage at Hunter Mountain for the inaugural Taste of Country Music Festival.

The festival, June 13-15 on Hunter Mountain, is produced by Townsquare Productions, and is a collaboration between Townsquare Media Group and Chet-5 Festivals, founded by Gary Chetkof, president and general manager of Radio Woodstock WDST (100.1 FM in Woodstock). Chet-5 produces Mountain Jam and the past Bluestock Festival.

Lady Antebellum is headlining act of Taste of Country. Currently Lady A has a planned show June 14 in North Lawrence, Ohio. The band’s June 21 concert and later summer dates are canceled because Hillary Scott is expecting her first child.

Also headlining the festival is country legend Willie Nelson. The Texan is well known as an ambassador of the genre, singing songs such as “Always on My Mind,” “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” and “On the Road Again.”

Other announced acts include Trace Adkins, young upstart Hunter Hayes, Billy Currington, Montgomery Gentry, Joe Nichols, Gloriana, Justin Moore, Dustin Lynch and Blackberry Smoke.

Camping will be available. Tickets go on sale Feb. 1. For more information, visit www.tasteofcountryfestival.com.
