CHESTER COUNTY, PA — Citadel Country Spirit’s three headliners have been announced. Country music superstar Brantley Gilbert joins Dierks Bentley and Chris Young to headline the third annual Citadel Country Spirit USA, a spectacular three-day country music festival coming to Chester County’s Brandywine Valley Aug. 28-30.

The festival will again be held at Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show Grounds, located in the countryside of Philadelphia just minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike at the Downingtown West Chester exit.

Brantley Gilbert, who made his bones as a professional songwriter, moved into the big leagues with his Just as I Am album in 2014 and has gained notoriety ever since.

Distinguished by a new-fashioned style of traditional country, his music is rooted in the country-pop and arena music fusions of the ‘90s, receptive to sly, modern R&B as well as electronic flair. Recently, he followed up his No. 1 single, “What Happen in a Small Town,” with the release of “Fire’t Up” from his No. 1 album, Fire & Brimstone.

Heralded as a Great American Festival Experience, Citadel Country Spirit USA will feature 20 country music acts performing nearly 30 hours of live music on two stages – 14 nationally recognized artists on the GMC Sierra Stage and popular up-and-comers on the Citadel Rising Star Stage. WXTU is the festival’s media partner.

Citadel Country Spirit USA’s three-day schedule and remainder of the lineup will be announced at a later date.

While music is the main attraction, attendees are treated to a celebration with like-minded country music fans, an array of activities and fanfare, a wide selection of food vendors, restaurants, libation establishments and lounges for socializing and having fun.

Hosted by the Chester County Conference & Visitors Bureau (CVB), approximately 20,000 fans from across the country attended the festival in August 2019.

Citadel, one of the largest credit unions serving the Greater Philadelphia area, is the festival’s title sponsor for the third consecutive year. As a local financial institution focused on “People Helping People,” Citadel is dedicated to supporting the communities it serves through events such as Citadel Country Spirit USA.
