3:40 p.m.(Stage 3) – She’s best known for adult-contemporary pop-rock but she’s been honing her country chops for a while now.
4:50 p.m. (Stage 2) – Another legend, only this one specializes in a diverse Chicago blues style.
Justin Townes Earle
5 p.m.(Stage 3) – He’s the son of alt-country outlaw Steve Earle, but the young Bloodshot Records recording artist has quietly been making his own way. After this, there’s enough down time to fully recharge. Grub or beer: your call.
6:15 p.m.(Stage 3)
Thomas Wynn & the Believers
6:15 p.m.(Stage 4)
6:30 p.m. (Stage 3)
Check out the beginning of either Chris Isaak or local Southern soul-rockers Thomas Wynn & the Believers, but then definitely go see the graceful American songwriting of Brandi Carlile.
7:05 p.m.(Main Stage) – Please Lord, keep him on his twangy material and away from rap.

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band
9:20 p.m.(Main Stage)
And now, the conundrum of the day: If Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band still does anything for you, it’s probably past your bedtime by the time they go on.
