The Carolina Country Music Festival attracts thousands of visitors and some of the genre’s biggest stars to Myrtle Beach each year. This year TJ Lundeen, Archetype SC’s marketing writer, will be among those taking in the three-day festival, thanks to the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.
“I’m thrilled to be able to attend CCMF this weekend,” Lundeen said. “For the past few years, I’ve heard about the show and have seen its impact on the area. This year, rather than watching Instagram or Snapchat stories, I’ll be in attendance to see some excellent music, practically in my backyard.”
Lundeen was one of the lucky few members of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce ambassador program to win a pair of tickets to the weekend of music. This year, Toby Keith, Luke Bryan, and Zac Brown Band are headlining the festival, with a number of acts taking the stage before the megastars.
“I’m really excited to see Zac Brown Band on Sunday,” Lundeen said. “They have been one of my favorite groups for the past 8-10 years, but I’ve never been able to catch one of their live shows. I know they put on quite a show and I can’t wait to see it.”
The Carolina Country Music Festival has been called a “marquee event for the Myrtle Beach area,” by former Chamber CEO Brad Deen. The 2017 event brought more than 30,000 people to the area and an economic impact of more than $25 million to the Grand Strand.
