Kacey Musgraves will perform at this year's first-ever G Fest coming up June 16th - 18th. This festival pays tribute to Merle Haggard and she is very excited to be among the performers........

The festival is put on by the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and takes place in Muskogee, Oklahoma at the Historic Hatbox Field.

Kacey says 'Artists like Merle Haggard are important because they became legends and set trends not by worrying about money and fame but just by being themselves.'

She went on to say 'So it just inspires me even more to uphold what's important to me as a person and songwriter first and not worry about the rest'.

The Festival will feature Country, Rock & Americana music.

Some of the other bands who will be performing over the three day festival include: The Old Crow Medicine Show, Turnpike Troubadours, Marty Stuart, Aubrie Sellers, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, John Fullbright, Paul Thorn, Uncle Lucious, and many more.
