Love songwriter rounds? If you’re anything like us, there’s an allure to the original writer of a song singing their hit and telling the story behind how the song came together. And if you’re anywhere near Louisiana, you probably won’t want to miss their new Flambeau Festival, which will feature a Nashville Songwriter stage.
The classic rock and country festival kicks off its inaugural year on October 7 and 8 in Gonzales, LA, featuring headliners Sam Hunt, Hank Williams Jr., and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Dustin Lynch, Chase Rice, Blackberry Smoke, and Louisiana’s own Jacob Davis are slated to perform as well. The festival will feature a Main Stage, a Torch Stage highlighting up and coming country acts, and the Nashville Songwriter Stage.
“We feel the flambeau itself is an authentic metaphor for the torch lighting the way to new experiences – a creative, musical, and cultural expansion,” producer Mark Miller shares in a release. “The image spoke to what we wanted to build. Flambeau Fest will serve proudly as a new torchbearer for the southern festival.”
