2011 Florida Strawberry Festival concerts: Lady Antebellum, Jamey Johnson, the Judds and more




It's about time we got word on the lineup for the 2011 Florida Strawberry Festival, isn't it? 

Well, good things happen to those who wait. Organizers have tipped us off to the lineup, and this year's big-name headliner is Lady Antebellum.

The recent CMA winners, and possible frontrunners for Album and Record of the Year at next year's Grammys, are slated to headline the final night of the festival, which runs March 3-13.

Other highlights include Kenny Rogers (March 3), Jeremy Camp (March 5), Trace Adkins and The Judds (March 6, in what is being billed as their final tour), Clint Black (March 7), Rick Springfield (March 9), George Jones and the Doobie Brothers (March 10) and Jamey Johnson (March 11). Tanya Tucker, .38 Special, Charley Pride, Ray Price and Chris Young are also on the bill. And there's still room for one more big name on the bill, as the headliner on March 12 is still blank.

At first glance, this is a pretty solid lineup, and relatively forward-thinking, what with the Jamey Johnson and Lady A appearances. Ticket prices are not yet posted at, but we've included them after the jump. And remember, tickets sold out in less than a week for Lady A's concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall in September, so you might want to buy early. (Or show up early to get one of the 3,000 or so free grandstand tickets available for each show.)

Get the full schedule after the jump.
