Alan Jackson, Gloriana added to 2013 Strawberry Festival lineup
If you were waiting on one or two more big names to hit the Florida Strawberry Festival in March, wait no longer.
Songwriting superstar Alan Jackson and young coed collective Gloriana have been added to a bill that already includes Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakam, Martina McBride, Scotty McCreery and others. (It's weird, isn't it, that Alan Jackson hadn't been to Tampa Bay in years, and now this'll be his second local show in less than four months? Whatever; we love us some Chattahoochee, so we're not complaining.)
Gloriana will perform at 3:30 p.m. March 2, while Jackson will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. March 3. Ticket prices haven't been announced, but they'll go onsale for both artists on Thursday.
After the jump, get the (mostly complete, we think) lineup for the 2013 Florida Strawberry Festival.
