PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) – Despite the setbacks, organizers of the Gulf Coast Jam are hoping live music will return in 2022.
Rendy Lovelady, executive producer of Gulf Coast Jam and Sandjam, was forced to cancel both festivals for this year after local hospitals were inundated with unvaccinated coronavirus patients.
However, he has since announced that the 10th anniversary show will take place in June of next year and that headliner Chris Stapleton has stepped down and will be replaced by Florida Georgia Line.
Lovelady announced on Friday that three more artists will be joining the show, Jordan Davis, Mitchell Tenpenny, & Maddie & Tae are now on the 2022 lineup.
Davis is responsible for the number 1 hits “Slow Dance in a Parking Lot”, “Take It From Me” and “Singles You Up”. Tenpenny’s 2018 album Tell all my secrets debuted at No.5 on BillboardTop Country Albums Chart and No. 53 on the Billboard 200. And Maddie and Tae are best known for their huge hit, “To Die With a Broken Heart.”
