On Friday night, the event goes country, with a performance from Brothers Osborne on the Coca-Cola stage in Romare Bearden Park. The singer/songwriter siblings recently earned back-to-back ACM Vocal Duo of the Year awards, along with ACM Music Video of the Year for their top 10, Grammy-nominated single, “It Ain’t My Fault.” Brothers Osborne currently reigns as two-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year, and their debut album, “Pawn Shop,” was certified Gold by the RIAA.

hard-driving deep cuts — from “The Grand Illusion” and “Blue Collar Man” to “Come Sail Away” and “Renegade.” STYX recently reissued its sonically sweet 16th studio album and its most ambitious, most challenging and most rewarding album to date, THE MISSION, on its label, Alpha Dog 2T/UMe. The highly anticipated double disc includes a CD of the original album, as well as a Blu-ray of THE MISSION mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound.
