"We came up with the name for this festival as sort of a nod to the storied railroad history in that area," said Brian O' Connell, Live Nation President of Country Touring. "The Delaware State Fair has always been such a great supporter of country music and we couldn’t think of a better location to host this three-day event in what we hope will become a yearly institution. As I said when we held our press conference back in October, my goal was to deliver a world class festival that is unique to Delaware, the surrounding community and the mid-atlantic in general. I feel like we have put together an incredible lineup, and delivered on our promise in spades!"
Highway One's Alex Pires noted: "After two years of effort, we are proud to announce this first class music festival. The lineup is exciting. The 360 plus acres of green fields and trees provide room for everyone. We promise a stand-alone event you won't want to miss."
