"Coachella Country"

While on Del McCoury Band's MySpace page yesterday, the May 6, 2007 Coachella date that have on their calendar jumped out at me. I didn't see anything on the Coachella website about next year's line-up being announced but then I got my answer today in a Pollstar article titled "Coachella Country." According to the article:

Goldenvoice is ready to apply its successful Coachella formula to a new country music festival next year.

Promoter Paul Tollett said the currently unnamed fest will take place May 5 - 6 at the Empire Polo Field in Indio. It follows the established Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which runs April 27 - 29."

Tollett said the country music event will include Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Emmylou Harris, Earl Scruggs, Nickel Creek, Garrison Keillor and Riders In The Sky. But that's just a sample of what's to come.

Apparently, Del McCoury Band will be part of that line-up too. They'll be here at The Barns for two shows next week and another "Couchella Country" band, Riders in the Sky, come to The Barns on Saturday, February 3. We'll have to keep an eye out to see if other '06-'07 Barns artists end up being added to the event.
