For the second straight year, one lucky country music artist is getting a chance to win their way on to the stage at the Rockin' River Music Fest.
Organizer Kenny Hess pleased to announce that Road To Rockin' River 2017 officially kicks off today.
"Last year was a big success. We had several hundred people compete to win their way on to the main stage to open up for Sam Hunt."
For Hess, the idea for the competition is two-fold; to give local artists their shot, and grow homegrown talent for the festival.
"We're giving people their shot, and the same time building our base for future years. We couldn't be more excited about it."
This year's competition will take place at 10 venues around the province from now until June 17th.
The winners at each venue will then compete on Thursday, August 3rd at the Rockin' River Music Festival, for a chance to open for Brett Kissel and The Band Perry two nights later.
