Get Ready for Day 2: Head to Southlake Art in the Square 2014!

04/26/2014
Cadillac Three

There’s no question that Day 1 of Southlake Art in the Square 2014 was a huge success – fantastic art, great live performances, and amazing entertainment and food choices!

It’s clear that the Southlake Women’s Club knows how to throw a party.

Now, let’s look at what Day 2 has in store. The festival is open from 10 a.m.-10:30 p.m. The Main Stage has an incredible lineup of performers all day long:

Fastlane – 12:30-2 p.m.

Popular Eagles tribute band.

Fastlane

Jessie Frye / Kaela Sinclair – 3-5 p.m.

Singer/songwriter act from Denton, TX.

jessie frye

Derek Anthony – 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Anthony can best be described as a contemporary country style with some traditional taste of country music embedded into his sound and feel.  Most comments from fans are a cross between Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley style/sound, but of course, Anthony prefers to have his unique sound to stand out from the rest of the pack.

Derek Anthony

The Cadillac Three – headlining at 8:30-10:30 p.m.

The Cadillac Three have emerged with a sound all of their own, a sound that hovers between radio-ready country anthems, hard-and-heavy rock and traditional Southern folk. You could call it country fuzz, you could call it hipster-billy, you could call it any number of over-hyphenated, adjective-strewn things but when you boil it all down there’s only one way to describe it: damn good music, as pure and refreshing as a country creek.

Cadillac Three

We hope to see you at the Main Stage!
