The Taste of Country Music Festival features a local musician trying to make it big.
Friday night the Arkansas Music Pavilion at the Washington County Fairgrounds hosted the Taste of Country Music Festival. This event was the first in AMP history to have two stages. It was headlined by country music superstar Miranda Lambert.
Opening the event was a Fayetteville native. Amanda Cramer is hoping to make it big on the country music scene.
Amanda said, “Its very special, I mean, these artists aren’t just anybody, they’re big people, and they have a following, they have a huge success, so its an honor just to open for them.”
“I wanna be those people, I wanna be at that level, so to even be with the same people, same place that’s huge.”
As for the future, Amanda said she is leaving Northwest Arkansas on Saturday, “I’m actually moving tomorrow to Nashville for school at Belmont. Hopefully I’m going to network a ton, I’m going to make some friends, I am just going to put myself out there as much as I can, and hopefully get noticed and get signed.”
The AMP said the Country Music Festival could be the biggest show in its history, nearly 7,000 fans were expected.
The show also featured Randy Houser and the Pistol Annies.
