PRIOR LAKE, Minn. — It's going to be a great summer for music in the metro.
Lakefront Music Fest, a two-day celebration of all things rock and country, announced the two final acts in the lineup for this summer's festival.
Black Stone Cherry will join headliner Lynyrd Skynyrd and REO Speedwagon on Friday, rock 'n' roll night. Then on Saturday, country music night, Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line will round out the ticket with headliner Darius Rucker and Joe Nichols.
Black Stone Cherry was formed in 2001 and has released seven studio albums, including their latest release "The Human Condition." They're described as "a fiery yet rootsy mix of hard rock and post-grunge/heavy metal that invokes names like Stone Sour, Theory of a Deadman, Buckcherry, and Shinedown." They are preparing to set out on tour in the U.K. in January.
Tyler Hubbard is best known for being half of the Florida Georgia Line duo and has accumulated 20 number one hits in his career as a musician. He and partner Brian Kelley announced that they were "taking a break" to focus on solo projects. Since then Hubbard released the solo single "5'9" which already has more than 220 million online streams.
Lakefront Music Fest will take place on July 14 and 15 in Prior Lake. General Admission tickets start at $65 a person a night. You can purchase tickets and find more information at the Lakefront Music Fest website.
