Main Street Music Festival

On August 10th and 11th, downtown Albertville will transform itself into one of the best concert venues in the South.

Main Street Music Festival got its start in 2009, and over time has grown into a regional destination for concert goers. Admission for the festival is free and seating is not assigned, so you may want to get their early

The City of Albertville announced their entertainment line-up for this year’s festival which created excitement for country music-lovers both old and young.

Canada’s Country duo High Valley will kick off the Friday night concert. Brothers from Blumenort, Alberta, began recording in 2010 and have hit the top 50 US Country chart with their song “Let It Be Me.”

Music legend Clay Walker will then take the stage. Born in Vidor, Texas, Walker hit the country music scene in 1993 with the single "What's It to You," which reached number one on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, as did its follow-up song, 1994's "Live Until I Die."

Saturday brings Madison County, Alabama band Dirt Circus and longtime Atlanta-based folk-rock band Drivin' N Cryin', which will lead into the headliner, Tyler Farr. Based in Huntsville, Alabama, Dirt Circus formed in 2012. Playing rock anthems from the 70’s and the music that made mosh-pits happen in the 90’s, their shows are full of famous riffs and high energy.

Drivin’ N Cryin’ was formed in 1985 and played their first show in October of that year at Atlanta’s famed 688 Club. The band quickly gained attention for their blistering live shows and gained a rabid fanbase in the late-1980’s southeast music scene.

The headliner, Tyler Farr, grew up in Garden City, Missouri and always dreamed about being a singer and performer. He released his single “Hot Mess’ in 2012. In 2013, he released “Redneck Crazy,” which became the first of many Top 10 hits on the country leader board.
