Free Outdoor Event Is May 12 at Mountain’s Edge
Country in the Park returns to the Mountain’s Edge Master Planned Community with another great slate led by country star Jerrod Niemann with American Idol winner Trent Harmon, up-and-comer Ben Rue and local favorite Thrillbilly Deluxe. The free outdoor country music concert and festival will be Saturday, May 12 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the best-selling community’s Exploration Park amphitheater. Country in the Park is presented by Mountain’s Edge and Las Vegas’ New Country Leader, 95.5 The Bull.
With nearly a decade-long career, headliner Niemann will perform around 6 p.m. The Platinum-certified No.1 singer-songwriter just released his fourth album, This Ride, and his latest single, “I Got This,” is now on country radio. His chart-topping songs include Platinum-certified No.1 “Lover, Lover” and Platinum-certified multi-week No. 1 “Drink to That All Night.”
Harmon was the winner of the 15th season of American Idol. His self-titled EP, featuring his Top 30 hit “There’s a Girl,” was released in December 2016. Rue has more than 1.5 million streams on Spotify, and his debut single, “I Can’t Wait (Be My Wife),” was called the wedding song of the summer for 2014 by Billboard. Thrillbilly Deluxe will start the day’s entertainment at 2 p.m. The four-member country rock band from Las Vegas is known for rousing performances and covers of hit country songs and classic country and rock.
Country in the Park festivities also will include a beer garden, food vendors, booths, exhibits and more. Picnic baskets, chairs, blankets and well-behaved leashed pets are welcome. No alcohol, coolers, glass, backpacks and pop-up tents are allowed in the park, and this policy will be strictly enforced.
