Dwight Yoakam, Lorrie Morgan, more added to Florida Strawberry Festival lineup

The Florida Strawberry Festival pulled off a coup with their 2013 musical lineup, announcing they were luring one of country's hottest acts, Blake Shelton, to Plant City.

Now they're getting another cool cool cat in a hat: Dwight Yoakam.

Yoakam, Lorrie Morgan, Mel and Pam Tillis, T.G. Sheppard and the Gaither Vocal Band are among the newest additions to the 2013 Strawberry Festival Lineup, according to an announcement. Janie Fricke, Steve Hall and the Shotgun Red Show, Gene Watson, Jimmy Sturr and His Orchestra and Caroline Kole are all also on the bill, joining previously announced acts like Shelton, Scotty McCreery, Martina McBride, Trace Adkins and Brantley Gilbert.

Tickets to the music at the Strawberry Festival will go on sale at 8 a.m. Dec. 3. Prices haven't been announced, but most generally range from about $15 to $30, with exceptions for the bigger names (like Shelton). Of course, there are always about 3,000 free first-come-first-serve seats at every show.
