Summer Jam 2017 with A THOUSAND HORSES

Y-Country Summer Jam started in 1998. From 2005 through 2011, the event was part of the Sunday festivities at the Venetian Festival on the St. Joseph River, which is no longer in existence. But, Summer Jam will continue on!

The event has always highlighted bright, new, rising Country stars. Over the years, headliners have included artists and groups such as:

Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Darryl Worley, Jack Ingram, Luke Bryan, Lee Brice, Parmalee, Cassadee Pope, and more!

Y-Country wishes to thank the Ford Motor Company and our Neighborhood Michigan Ford Dealers for their support of this annual event. Without their generous assistance, Michigan’s Great Southwest could not see the next “big thing” in Country music every summer!

2017 Headliner: A Thousand Horses

Drive across the rural South with the window down and the radio on. Hit scan and listen as muscular country, drawling rock, high gospel harmony, low-country blue and old school soul meld together into something special and distinct.

That’s the sound of A Thousand Horses and the exciting new band’s debut, Southernality. The 13-track Dave Cobb-produced album has already given the Republic Nashville group their first major hit, with No. 1 single “Smoke.” Fans have responded to the unique hypnotic song in a way that shows the band’s all-genre mix of classic influences remains in the DNA of young music fans in the digital age.
