Colbie Caillat, Chris Isaak, Third Eye Blind lead packed lineup for Taste of Pinellas




Hope you're sitting down, because what we're about to say might floor you.

This year's Taste of Pinellas lineup rocks.

No joke. Tbt*'s Katherine Snow Smith is reporting a jam-packed lineup for this year's festival on May 20-22, including: Chris Isaak, Josh Turner, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy GuyColbie Caillat (above) and Third Eye Blind.

Color us stunned, because that's a pretty star-studded lineup for what is essentially an outdoor fair. It's certainly a step up from last year's biggest names, Martina McBride and Huey Lewis and the News. Isaak, Raitt, Guy and Caillat have all headlined Ruth Eckerd Hall.

But loyal readers will remember that -- coolness points be damned -- we here at SoundcheckCorp. are abnormally huge fans of Third Eye Blind (see here, here and here). The rest of the lineup matters not to us; as long as Stephan Jenkins and company are in town, you can count us in.

There's no ticket info available just yet, but we'll update you when we have it. Click here for the original details.
