For years the fans of real country have been waiting for that one festival that represents all of their needs and desires, without having to sift through the scores of names they don’t want to be bugged with. In 2017, the Tumbleweed Festival in Kansas City emerged as that festival. Now they have released their 2018 lineup.
The Saving Country Music Official Top 25 Spotify Playlist has been reinforced for your post-Labor Day listening and beyond with a slew of new tracks that deserve to be separated from the herd and have a spotlight shone on them for their songwriting and compositional exceptionalism.

One of the most anticipated events in the entirety of 2017 in true country music is the Tumbleweed Festival just outside of Kansas City. After a vote-in contest Tumbleweed ran for the final performance spot of the festival, they decided to add multiple new acts to the lineup since so many fan bases showed such strong support.
The Tumbleweed Festival, which is set to transpire in Sugar Creek, MO, just outside of Kansas City on July 28th and 29th, has just launched the always dicey proposition of an online poll to see what band will fill the festival’s final slot for their 2nd season beside headliners such as Jamey Johnson, Cody Jinks, Whitey Morgan, and Billy Joe Shaver.
