Buddy Guy, Montgomery Gentry, Jonny Lang lead initial Ribfest 2012 lineup




Why wait for a third headliner? Ribfest, the huge annual porkapalooza at St. Petersburg's Vinoy Park, has unveiled the first slate of acts for this year's event, scheduled for Nov. 9-11, and it's looking pretty good.

Blues kings Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang will headline the first night of Ribfest on Nov. 9, and country stars Montgomery Gentry, above, will headline the final night on Nov. 11. Colt Ford and Matt Stillwell will also be part of Sunday's bill.

Saturday night's headliner is yet to be announced, but with blues on Friday and country on Sunday, you can expect something in the classic rock vein. Obviously, .38 Special and the Outlaws are your front-runners, with Styx and Molly Hatchet close behind. But who would you like to see? Leave your Ribfest suggestions in the comments!

Advance Ribfest tickets are $16; click here for all the details.
