Party In The Pines inaugural festival in White Pines, Florida was definitely a success. The festival was located on the grounds of Bienville Plantation, a renowned hunting lodge, set among pine woods and lakes. 22 artists performed during the two-day festival representing the best of country music available today.
Headliners Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert closed the main stage on Friday and Saturday night with their well known and loved hits. On Friday Raleigh Keegan opened the event with his country rock. Newcomer Ryan Hurd got the crowd fired up with his unique sound and songs. Country pop star Maren Morris took to the stage and announced her engagement to Ryan Hurd, inviting him to join her on stage for several duets. Saturday’s line up of traditional country stars Lanco and Easton Corbin had the fans up and ready for more. The Brothers Osborne had everyone dancing to their country rock and Jake Owen wooed the crowd with his stories.
Camping sites and RV sites were plentiful and full. Florida provided sunshine and temperatures in the low 80s with a comforting breeze. The venue provided excellent food and drink and plenty of room for all to hear and see their favorite country musicians. The VIP Experience was super with a large tent, comfortable couches and chairs, food and drink galore, and staff to see to any needs.
It was a two-day feast of food, drink, and great country music. Next year should be even better.
