With the first two days of Rock USA being a musical success, the third was expected to top off and exceed the rest. After all isn’t that what a Saturday night festival headliner should do? Yes, and that’s exactly what Kid Rock did to top off and close out Oshkosh’s Rock USA.

Lee Ann Womack brings original ‘country’ to Country USA

If you’ve been at Country USA all week or in the years prior you know the performances just keep getting better and better as the week carries on. Nashville’s best converge on Oshkosh for the five day long festival with the biggest names in country music. Oh, and don’t forget your beer and cheese!

Sugarland Wraps up Night 3 of Country USA

Taking the stage shortly after the amazing performance of Phil Vassar (photos), Sugarland snuck up on the main stage of Country USA for a minimalistic opening with Jennifer Nettles singing and banging on a drum, backed by guitarist Kristian Bush for “Wide Open.” It was a nice deviation from the normal idea of breaking out […]
