Clarksville, TN –TheFestival announces its headline entertainment for the 2017 festival, April 20th-22nd in downtown Clarksville.

From “Hillbilly Shoes” to “Headlights,” Montgomery Gentry has become one of the most identifiable duos in the history of country music—as much for their outlaw-meets-gentleman sensibilities, their yin and yang personalities and their intensely energetic live performances as that balance of voices that gives their brand of country an edge or their version of Southern rock a softer place to fall.
