For those who would like something a little closer to home, there is an option to rent a brand new Winnebago RV during the festival.

Along with featuring artists who are up and coming on the country music scene, the festival will feature several big names.

Classic rock artist Eddie Money will headline Thursday. He’s most well-known for ’70s hits like “Two Tickets to Paradise” and “Shakin’” and 80s hits “I Wanna Go Back” and “Take Me Home Tonight,” which he sang as a duet with Ronnie Spector.

Country Music Television award nominee Cole Swindell will finish off the Friday shows, just three days after his CMT nomination was announced. The artist is up for a Collaborative Video of the Year Award with the song “Flatliners,” which he performed with Dierks Bentley.

Grammy award-winning country artist Keith Urban will close out the night on Saturday. Urban’s best known singles include “Making Memories of Us” and “Where the Blacktop Ends.”

Two legendary country artists will perform on the last day of the festival. The Charlie Daniels Band will take to the stage at 8 p.m. and will be followed by Alabama at 10 p.m.

A complete list of performers can be found below.

Tickets are still available and all of the camping options are listed on the Tree Town Music Festival website at Those interested in utilizing the campgrounds are encouraged to book as soon as possible as space is limited.

According to a press release, the campsites are all within a half-mile of the stage, allowing campers to watch the concerts, visit a number of food and beverage vendors on site, or partake in other activities that will also take place at the festival, all within a relatively short distance.
