Saturday’s line-up addition brings to the stage Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet, widely known as the powerhouse quartet, Little Big Town. Having garnered 3 Grammy nominations, and numerous ACM and CMA nominations, there is no doubt that they are ready to take over with their unmistakable harmonies. For Sunday, Eden’s Edge and Sara Evans have joined the line-up. Eden’s Edge will jumpstart the performances and show the crowd how they earned their spot as one of Billboard’s “Artists to Watch in 2011”, and Sara Evans will take the stage later in the evening.
